Top NCAA College Football Games in Review
Without a doubt this was the best college football weekend of the year. We had upsets, last second field goals, touchdowns. Amazing storylines that show why college sports are so loved, and big shifts in the newest rankings.
Tennessee 52 - Alabama 49
Knoxville was the place to be this weekend. From early morning to early Sunday morning Tennessee fans were seen everywhere. Fans were even seen with the goal post that they eventually tossed into the Tennessee River outside of the stadium. The score shows how this game went. Lots of back and forth with a lot of big-time explosive plays. On Alabama's final drive of the game, they were able to get into field goal range, but it seemed like they mismanaged the game clock, as Bryce Young was seen leaving the field very upset with the result. Will Reichard then missed his 4th field goal in the last 3 weeks wide right. Now it was all on Tennessee with just under :30 seconds left to get into scoring position. With 3 seconds left they were able to drain the game winning kick that sent the Vols home as winners and snapped a 15-year losing streak to the Tide
Utah 43 - USC 42
The Trojans have one of the most talented rosters in the country, but as I stated in the review, they have not been able to pull away from teams in these games they have played so far. Eventually everyone knew it was going to catch up with them. In a game where Utah was commemorating the two athletes that have passed in the last year; TY Jordan, and Aaron Lowe, this certainly was a happy ending, and a very emotional one for everyone involved with the Utah organization. USC took a 7-point lead with just under two minutes left, which was just enough time for Utah to storm down the field to give themselves a shot to tie it up. The Trojan defense held strong and got the Utes to 4th and goal, but on Utah’s final chance, QB Cam Rising snuck into the end zone. Utah then decided they were going to go for the win, and as Cam Rising dropped back to pass, he saw green grass in front of him broke a tackle and won the game for the home team with the 2-point conversion.
Kentucky 27 - Mississippi State 17
A game with two high powered passing offenses were each put to sleep in this one. Neither quarterback could really get it going here, but the run game for the Wildcats made all the difference in this one. Chris Rodriguez Jr. ran all over the Bulldogs with 196 yards and 2 touchdowns. Mississippi State looked beat up, and it will be interesting to see how they respond and get ready for the no longer undefeated Crimson Tide next week.
Syracuse 24 - NC State 9
Everyone in college has been talking about the basketball schools like Kansas, Duke, and North Carolina having great seasons so far this year. The one team that continues to fly under the radar is this very impressive Syracuse team. The Orange defense has not allowed over 30 points in a game, and only two opponents have scored 20+ out of their 6 games so far. NC State coming in was for sure their toughest test, and there were a lot of questions on if they would be able to handle the pressure, but there was zero struggle from Syracuse. They were rewarded with a dominant win and a beautiful crowd swarming the field after the win. Watch out for Syracuse in the ACC race.
TCU 43 - Oklahoma State 40
Big 12 football at its finest here. Oklahoma State had all the control early, but as we all know there is no lead that is safe in this conference. TCU came back with everything going their way. The Cowboys had no answer for the run or the pass, and as the game went on the Oklahoma State defense looked defeated. In a double overtime thriller, Oklahoma State kicked a field goal to take the lead, but just after that, the Horned Frogs ran the ball into the end zone to win the game. This was another amazing atmosphere with a beautiful crowd storming the field.
