Riding the fences – Week 11

Cameron Dicker was nails once again, and Texas beat Kansas State 27-24 with a field goal as time expired. After playing an incredibly poor first quarter, UT outmatched KSU 27-10 in the final three stanzas.

It’s not a regularity that the Minnesota Golden Gophers are unbeaten in November and have a home date against a Top 10 team (as was the case on Saturday). To celebrate the happenings, Minnesota got their helmets shined and filled up the stadium….then the football team did their part. The Gophers played from ahead and got a win over Penn State, 31-26.

Some fans doubt Baylor’s perfect record and question whether they’re deserving of a lofty ranking. On Saturday, the Bears proved them right and wrong at the same time by surviving a three overtime thriller against TCU, 29-23.

Illinois completed a touchdown pass with time expiring to beat Michigan State 37-34. This was the fourth consecutive win for the Cloudbeards, and yes, it was on full display:

There hasn’t been much reason to celebrate in West Lafayette this Fall. But on Saturday, Purdue kicked a last second field goal to beat Northwestern, 24-22.

UGA’s head coach Kirby smart was restrained by a grad assistant so he didn’t go too far onto the field. It’s a ridiculous look for a grown man. Coaches demand self-restraint from their players – can they not live by their own rules?

LSU 46 – Alabama 41. The Tigers finally got over the hump. LSU quarterback Joe Burrow had a signature moment and is going to win the Heisman Trophy.

Clemson must have been upset about the CFP committee not having them in the initial top 4. After the first quarter they were up 28-0 on NC State, eventually blitzing the Wolfpack by a final score of 55-10.

This week in Ugh-lternate uniforms: Kentucky wore graphite jerseys with chrome helmets…neither of which are a school color. Honorable mention to the Nevada Wolfpack.

Despite coming in with a meager 3-5 record, Texas Tech jumped all over West Virginia and led 35-10 at halftime. The final score was 38-17 but the game didn’t feel that close.

Western Kentucky got their turn and smoked Arkansas 45-19. To be clear, that is the Hilltoppers of WKU dominating an SEC team. It was the end of the line for Arkansas head coach Chad Morris – he was fired after the loss.

Speaking of midseason coaching moves…FSU fired Willie Taggart last week and then beat Boston College on Saturday. Maybe there’s hope for Razorback fans?

As good as the day’s early games were, Oklahoma, Clemson & UGA put everybody to sleep in primetime. All three schools were up big by halftime and won lopsided games.
