Yes, there was also College Football this weekend! (Being a huge Roger Federer fan, I was focusing on the Davis Cup Final) There were no earth shattering results…FSU continued to escape from defeat coming from behind for the sixth time (at least) this season to defeat Boston College in Tally, 20-17 thanks to a game winning field goal with three seconds left. One has to ask, when will this catch up to them, or will it? Perhaps in the ACC Championship game where they will face Georgia Tech (idle this weekend) who will represent the Coastal Division thanks to UNC who defeated Duke on Thursday night, 45-20. All things happen for a reason…and GT is the team from the Coastal Division with the best shot at defeating FSU so GO JACKETS! First up for the Jackets, a trip to Athens next weekend to face instate rival UGA. The Dawgs ran all over some cupcake, 59 points scored and well, say no more. Anyhow…my other team, Oregon, pounded Colorado, 44-10 and M. Mariota continued to show why he should be the Heisman Trophy winner this year! GO DUCKS! They will likely face UCLA in the Pac 12 Championship game as UCLA defeated USC 38-20. So great to see these two storied west coast college football teams on prime time on ABC once again! Kansas State continues to win, defeating WVU on Thursday night, 26-20. Miss State demolished Vandy, 51-0 and new (and old) #1 Bama ran all over their cupcake opponent in a tuneup for the Iron Bowl next weekend against Auburn. Ole Miss suffered a big setback, losing to Arkansas 30-0 so next weekend’s Egg Bowl should be interesting. Will Ole Miss pull an upset or will Miss State continue on to the SEC title game? Back to the Pac 12, Arizona over Utah, 42-10 and Arizona State beat Washington State 52-31. Who says they don’t play great college football in the Pac 12? Not me!
Nebraska lost a heartbreaker at home to Minnesota, 28-24 and Mizz continued its quest for the SEC East title with a 29-21 win over Tennessee. Will it be Missouri or UGA? Missouri has one more game to win next weekend, win and go to Atlanta, or lose and it will be UGA.
Ohio State took care of Indian, 42-27 and Wisconsin squeezed by Iowa, 26-24. Baylor continued to roll, defeating OK State, 49-28.
