Rivalry week was certainly a week of rivalry, but surprisingly, it wasn’t a week of carnage. Only two teams in the top 10 took a loss this week, and neither were in the top four of the College Football Playoff Rankings. In fact, every team in the top four won by at least 29 points. No. 1 Ohio State’s 56-27 win over No. 13 Michigan was the most exciting game of the bunch, while No. 2 LSU crushed Texas A&M 50-7. The Tigers out-gained the Aggies 553 yards to 169, with Joe Burrow throwing for 352 yards and three touchdowns all while becoming the SEC’s single-season passing yardage record holder in the process. No. 3 Clemson put a whooping on South Carolina as well, cruising to a 38-3 victory. The Tigers had 527 yards of offense to South Carolina’s 174 with Trevor Lawrence throwing for 295 yards and leading the team in rushing with 66 on the ground as well.
Then there was No. 4 Georgia, which showed the world that, believe it or not, it can score points. The Bulldogs put a 50-burger on the Bees, beating Georgia Tech 52-7. Of course, though, the biggest story from the game might have been a shoulder injury suffered by running back D’Andre Swift. Then there was receiver George Pickens, who sat out the first half for disciplinary reasons, and was then ejected in the second half for throwing a punch which will cause him to miss the first half of next week’s SEC title game with LSU.

This block from Arizona State running back Eno Benjamin is something else.
Oklahoma caps off a nice 34-16 win over Oklahoma State. Again, the Sooners are led by defense and a strong ground game. Not the Oklahoma we’ve come to know over the years, but it works. The Sooners get a rematch with Baylor next week in the Big 12 Championship Game.
Utah puts away Colorado 45-15. Another dominating win by the Utes. Fourth win in last five games by at least 28 points. They’ve been crushing teams and I have to say I think they’re team No. 4 as of today. I get there’s a lot of football left to play next week and some things to be decided, but I think they’re better than Georgia, Oklahoma or Baylor.
Well, things aren’t going well for Florida State against Florida, but this is pretty neat. Better to be lucky than good I always say.
No. 7 Oklahoma currently leads Oklahoma State 20-13 at halftime. The Sooners have utilized a balanced offensive attack and quarterback Jalen Hurts has a rushing and receiving touchdown to his credit.
Florida leads Florida State 30-7 at the half. Noles have 95 yards of offense and, mercifully, the 2019 season is just 30 minutes away from ending for them.
This might be one of the coolest videos from the weekend. LSU is up 41-7 on Texas A&M and Burrow has broken the SEC single-season passing record.
No. 6 Utah has has scored a pair of second quarter touchdowns to take a 14-7 lead over Colorado late in the second quarter. Tyler Huntley just hit Brant Kuithe for a seven-yard touchdown to give the Utes the advantage. Huntley has completed nine of his 10 passes and threw two touchdown to pace Utah.
LSU is dominating Texas A&M 31-0 at the half. Heisman frontrunner Joe Burrow has thrown for 231 yards and two touchdown passes in the first half. The Tigers defense has held the Aggies to just 40 yards of total offense so far.
LSU is flexing its muscles against Texas A&M in the early going with two quick scores. Clyde Edwards-Helaire ran in a touchdown from five yards out and Joe Burrow just tossed a 12-yard touchdown to Justin Jefferson to give the Tigers a 14-0 lead. This one could be over very quickly if this trend continues.
Auburn knocks off Alabama 48-45 to win the Iron Bowl despite being outgained 515-354 in total yardage. Alabama’s Mac Jones threw for four touchdowns, but his two interceptions that were taken back for touchdowns were the difference. Easily one of the most entertaining games of the college football season.
Alabama’s Joseph Bulovas misses a field goal that would’ve tied the game in the late stages. Auburn could seal up this one with a first down. Tigers lead 48-45.
Baylor absolutely throttled Les Miles and Kansas 61-6. The Bears racked up 506 yards of total offense and JaMychal Hasty led a stellar rushing attack with three of the team’s seven rushing touchdowns. Baylor finishes the regular season with an 11-1 record with the only loss coming against Oklahoma earlier this month.
Wisconsin takes care of Minnesota 38-17. With the win, the Badgers will move on to the Big Ten Championship Game to play Ohio State. The Badgers lost in Columbus 38-7 earlier this season. Will it be any different this time? Not sure they have the speed to keep up, but we’ll see.
Jaylen Waddle hauls in another touchdown with a spectacular throw from Mac Jones. This is the fourth touchdown on the day and third touchdown catch. Alabama leads Auburn 45-40 in one of the most thrilling Iron Bowls in a while.
Notre Dame scores another touchdown to go up 28-17 on Stanford as we near the end of the third quarter. Call it a slow start since the Irish have now gone on a 21-0 run since falling behind 10 points. The Cardinal have just had so many injuries and attrition problems this year. Hard to keep that up.
Mac Jones brushes off a pick six and throws another touchdown to Jaylen Waddle. Waddle only had four total touchdowns entering the game, but this touchdown was his third of the game. He has a pair of receiving touchdowns and one via a kickoff return.
Auburn’s Zakoby McClain picked off Mac Jones and took it back 100 yards for the touchdown. This game is insanity.
Wisconsin may be putting this game away. Kendric Pryor takes it in for a 26-yard touchdown to give the Badgers a 24-10 lead over Minnesota. It’s looking more and more like we’re destined for an Ohio State/Wisconsin Big 10 title game.
Snowstorm? That doesn’t matter to Wisconsin after Jack Coan threw a 47-yard dart of a touchdown pass to Quintez Cephus. Coan has a pair of touchdown passes on the day and the Badgers currently lead Minnesota 17-7 in the third quarter.
The first half between Alabama and Auburn was just a tad crazy. The Tide currently lead the Tigers 31-27 at halftime after the two teams exploded for 48 combined points in the second quarter. Despite tossing a pick six, Alabama’s Mac Jones threw a pair of touchdown passes to keep pace with Auburn.
Wisconsin outscored Minnesota 10-0 in the second quarter to take a 10-7 advantage into the locker room. Minnesota’s defense has held star running back Jonathan Taylor to just 3.4 yards-per-carry and 37 yards in the opening half. However, Taylor did haul in a 28-yard touchdown pass from Jack Coan.
Mac Jones delivers a pinpoint touchdown pass to Henry Ruggs III to give Alabama a 24-17 lead over Auburn late in the first half.
Alabama takes a 10-7 lead over Auburn in the Iron Bowl. Najee Harris has been a one-man wrecking crew with 91 yards on the ground in the first half.
Oh my goodness, Syracuse beats Wake Forest on a walk-off strip fumble returned for a touchdown in overtime. 39-30 Orange. Incredible.
Minnesota’s Tanner Morgan looking like a wizard against Wisconsin. He completes a 27-yard pass to Rashod Bateman to move the Golden Gophers deep into Badger territory. Minnesota currently leads 7-0.
Best game of the noon slate has been Indiana and Purdue. They’re currently going into their second overtime tied at 38. Oh, and this happened:
Meanwhile, in Conference USA, Marshall keeps its East division hopes alive with an overtime win over FIU. That conference has so many title game matchup possibilities still on the table.
Georgia finishes off Georgia Tech 52-7. But the question is what will this team look like against LSU in the SEC title. D’Andre Swift is hurt, Lawrence Cager is out and George Pickens is suspended for the first half for fighting. Not great.
Clemson wraps it up against South Carolina, 38-3. Another dominant performance by the Tigers and Trevor Lawrence is playing at the highest level of the season right now with 361 yards on the day. Clemson will get Virginia in the ACC Championship Game, but not sure the Hoos have the offensive line to keep it too competitive.
