College Football Week 3: Upset City


It would have been tough for this weekend to have been more full of football. The weekend started out with (15) Tennessee keeping it close with Ohio the entire game before finally pulling away to a 28-19 win. The main game was (10) Louisville absolutely dominating (2) Florida State 63-20, proving that Louisville belongs in the playoff ring. (13) Iowa fell to 1-AA champions North Dakota State 23-21 in a last-minute field goal, & (9) Wisconsin held off Georgia State (but barely) 23-18.

Not that (4) Michigan has a lot of room to talk, as they allowed 28 points againt Colorado (but had the final score 45-28). And (1) Alabama kept all of their fans on the edge of their seat until the clock hit :00, as the final score of their game against (19) Ole Miss was 48-43, thanks to an onside kick and score by Ole Miss late in the 4th quarter.

Nebraska took down (22) Oregon 35-32, (20) LSU squeaked by Mississippi State 23-20, and (16) Georgia really squeaked by Missouri 28-27. Later in the night, Cal upset (11) Texas 50-43, and took the wind out of their comeback sails. (12) Michigan State defeated (18) Notre Dame 36-28, and (3) Ohio State dominated (14) Oklahoma 45-24, earning their spot in the top 2 behind Alabama.

FIRE: Kirby Smart
You're not off to a good start, buddy. I get that you're still undefeated, but barely. Against Nicholls and Missouri, nonetheless.

MARRY: North Dakota State
Not that I'm rooting for the Big Ten to look bad, but NDSU is the best 1-AA team by far.

KILL: Florida State
Their game against Louisville shows that they might never have deserved their top-5 pre-season ranking.

(1) Alabama vs Ken State, 12pm SECN
(12) Georgia
@ (23) Ole Miss, 12pm ESPN
 (8) Michigan State vs (11) Wisconsin, 12pm BTN
(14) Tennessee vs (19) Florida, 3:30pm CBS
(4) Michgian vs Penn State, 3:30pm ABC
(10) Texas A&M vs (17) Arkansas, 9pm ESPN

Neither are particularly big games for my teams, but both are must-wins regardless in order to keep playoff hopes alive.
Roll Tide & GO BLUE.
