Alabama rolling at Texas A&M
It isn’t a supreme, ultra, suffocating blowout like it has been the last two weeks for top-ranked Alabama, but it’s been dominating.
Led by running back Damien Harris‘ 119 yards and one touchdown and a defensive line that is giving Texas A&M quarterback Kellen Mond fits, coach Nick Saban’s crew jumped out to a 17-3 in Aggieland at halftime. After falling into a massive 3-0 deficit, Harris broke off a 75-yard touchdown run. All told, Texas A&M led for a total of 13 seconds.
Hey, that’s about 13 more than expected, right?
Miami finally ends its losing streak against Florida State
Miami finally put an end to its losing streak to Florida State and did so in exciting fashion. The first 55 minutes of the game featured two touchdowns. The last five had three.
First, Miami scored to take a 17-13 lead with 5:09 to play, and Florida State responded with a 9-play, 75-yard drive to take a 20-17 lead with 1:24 left to play. That’s when Malik Rosier and Miami went to work, and the Canes weren’t trying to get a field goal attempt. Everybody in this rivalry has seen how that movie ends. So, in the final seconds, Rosier found Darrell Langham for a 23-yard touchdown with six seconds left in the game. It was Rosier’s third passing touchdown of the day, and it was the one that ended Miami’s seven-game losing streak to its rival to the north.
TCU holds off West Virginia 31-24
With Oklahoma losing to Iowa State earlier in the day, TCU had a chance to make a big move in the Big 12, and it did just that against West Virginia. The Horned Frogs beat the Mountaineers 31-24. The Frogs blew a 17-3 lead in the second half but were able to hold off the Mountaineers thanks to Kenny Hill. First, the TCU quarterback caught a screen pass and went 48 yards to the house, and then he scored on a 3-yard run with 2:53 to play to give TCU the last touchdown it would need.
Iowa State upsets Oklahoma in Norman
It might not be the biggest upset of the season as far as point spreads are concerned, but there certainly hasn’t been a more impactful upset than Iowa State’s 38-31 win over Oklahoma on Saturday. The Cyclones ended an 18-game losing streak to the Sooners and did so without their starting quarterback. The Cyclones trailed 24-10 in the second quarter, but scored on their final five possessions of the game.
Georgia runs all over Vanderbilt
The Georgia Bulldogs are yet to stumble in 2017, picking up an easy 45-14 win over Vanderbilt on Saturday. As the score suggests, the Dawgs dominated the day, barely breaking a sweat on their way to a win. The Bulldogs rushed for 423 yards as a team, as Sony Michel (150 yards, a touchdown) and Nick Chubb (138 yards, two touchdowns) didn’t find much resistance. As a result, Georgia’s already bowl-eligible in early October.
Penn State looks rusty, still beats Northwestern 31-7
Fourth-ranked Penn State went on the road at Northwestern on Saturday and while they didn’t look like their normal selves early on, they kicked it into high gear in the second half to earn a decisive 31-7 win. Saquon Barkley had the worst first half of his career, rushing for -1 yards on eight carries, but finished things off strong with 75 yards on 16 carries and two touchdowns. How did they get a spark? Throw to a backup quarterback, of course. QB Trace McSorely hit Tommy Stevens for a 10-yard touchdown early in the second quarter to extend the lead to 10-0.
Auburn cruises past Ole Miss
No. 12 Auburn apparently had several cups of strong coffee prior to its 11 a.m. CT kick at home against Ole Miss. The Tigers rolled out to a 28-3 lead on 2-2 Ole Miss, which included a beautiful 75-yard catch-and-run from Jarrett Stidham to Ryan Davis. Check out tackle Austin Golson getting wide to spring Davis, and wide receiver Nate Craig-Myers at the Ole Miss 35-yard-line directing traffic while blocking downfield before Davis cuts back. Auburn running back Kerryon Johnson added three more rushing touchdowns in the first half to take the FBS rushing touchdown lead with 12 — 11 of which have been in the last three games. The Tigers finished off the Rebels 44-23.
