Air Force got off to a slow start vs UNLV but then rolled. The Falcons did have a couple of blown opportunities or could have won by more than 15. In the 1Q AF had a 1&gl at the 4 but fmbl’d at the 2 & the Falcons actually trailed 17-14. AF got a TD with 9:33 left to go up 35-20 but UNLV faked a punt from the AF49 & fired incomplete with 5:38 left. AF got 3 FD’s & had a FD at the 12 but took a knee on the final 2pl...

Washington wore black uniforms for the first time in school history & also painted the endzones black in this Thursday night game. UCLA led 7-0 behind backup QB Richard Brehaut & then LY’s Groza Winner, Kai Forbath, missed a 44 yard FG at the end of the 1Q. UW missed a 53 yd FG but would drive 61/8pl & got a TD with 5:57 left in the half to tie it at 7. UW had a 165-117 yd edge at the half. UCLA lost Brehaut on the 3Q’s 2nd series & the teams would combine for 8 punts on the next 8 poss. Brehaut was replaced by Darius Bell (a running QB). With 6:22 left, Bell threw an int that was ret’d 28 yds for a TD & UW took a 17-7 lead. They brought in 4th string QB Clayton Tunney who hit 1-8-13 & had a pass int’d & UW tacked on another TD 3pl later capping a 43 yd drive with 4:24 left for a misleading 24-7 win in what was a 1-score game early-4Q. UCLA’s 3 QB’s combined for a ridiculous 6-25 with 3 int...

Boise only led 3-0 after 1Q & 10-0 mid-2Q. Fresno fmbl’d at the Boise30 down 17-0 & BSU led 20-0 at the half. In the 2H BSU would get 4 TD’s & a FG. Three of their TD drives were 22 yds (after 14 yd IR), 40 yds (after 12 yd punt) & 36 yds (after 19 yd IR). Overall BS was impressive statistically with 516-125 yd & 31-9 FD edges & came out in orange for the game trying to dispel the theory they win at home with blue uniforms on blue turf...

Kansas actually led Oklahoma St 14-10 & the key play of the game happened with 8:27 left in the 2Q as they trailed 17-14. They were stuffed on 3&gl from the 1 & went for it on 4&gl from the 1 & were stopped. OSU led 20-14 at the half. After each team missed a FG in the 3Q OSU got a TD with 6:16 left in the 3Q to lead by 13. They blocked a punt for a TD to extend it to 20 then drove 61/5pl for a TD. KU got to the OSU40 but punted & OSU went 85/12pl for a TD with 5:41 left for the final margin...

Louisville’s leading rusher was actually P Chris Philpott who gained 21 yds on a fake punt. Bilal Powell had zero yds on 4 carries but was forced to the sideline with an illness. UL led 10-7 after rec’ing a fmbl for a TD but WV went 82/8pl for a TD to lead 14-10 at the half. There were 9 punts on the first 10 drives of the 2H. UL was SOD at the WV47 with 4:59 left & WV had a 41 yd FG blk’d with 2:33 left but on the next play UL was int’d at midfield & WV ran out the clock...

USF had a 162-81 yd edge vs Pitt at the half but missed a couple opportunities at TD’s & also missed a 52 yd FG & the game was tied at 3.

Kansas St/Colorado combined for 80 pts, their highest total ever in their 66 game series history. CU led 23-14 at half but had a 263-126 yd edge. The Buffs led by 2 scores for most of the 2H but KSU on 4&gl got a 16 yd TD pass with 13:18 left to pull within 8. After another CU TD made it 44-29, KSU on 4&12 got a 23 yd TD pass with 6:47 left to pull within 8 again but KSU’s final drive ended on a sk at their own 36 with 1:01 left...

UTEP QB Trevor Vittatoe was questionable coming in & hit just 8-22-100 yds. Tulsa had a 543-363 yd edge but twice opted to go for it on 4th&long passing up makable FG’s. Tulsa had a FD at the UTEP 18 but with 2:49 left on 4&22 they passed up a 47 yd FG & fired incomplete. UTEP got 2 FD’s to the TU36 but on 4&10 were int’d at the 30 with 1:40 left...

Wyoming RB Alvester Alexander ran for a school record 5 TD’s as WY beat Colorado St 44-0 in the Border War. WY dominated as you would think by the final with a 479-162 yd edge. It was 23-0 at half & WY had a pair of 80 yd TD drives to open the 3Q & extend it to 37-0...

Michigan St had a frustrating 1H vs Purdue & very nearly lost the game despite coming in with just 1 loss on the year. PU got an 80 yd TD run & a 35 yd IR TD. MSU had a pair of long drives for TD’s but missed the xp & with 11:10 left in the 2Q, MSU had an 11-1 FD edge but actually trailed 14-13. PU scored a TD with :08 left in the 1H & opened the 3Q with a drive for a TD & led 28-13. MSU got a TD & 2 pt conv with 6:54 left to pull within 3 & then blk’d a punt & rec’d at the 3 & got a TD on the next play to go up 35-31. PU did get to the MSU20 but on 4&7 was int’d at the 17...

It was another incredible loss for North Carolina as they had a 404-275 yd edge but Tom O’Brien amazingly improved to 4-0 vs NC thanks to a TD pass in the 3Q on what looked like it would be a sure incompletion on 4th down then a PR TD & a stopped 2 pt conversion at the end. NC settled for 19, 21 & 38 yd FG’s & despite having a 338-137 yd edge, they only led 19-10. It appeared NCSt’s last gasp happened with :52 left 3Q. The Wolfpack opted to go for it on 4&2. QB Wilson, under pressure, threw it out of the back of the EZ but 3 players who were actually outside the EZ tipped the ball in the air & it came back into the EZ & was caught by Spencer for a 2 yd TD. NCSt then benefitted from an 87 yd PR TD to take the lead. At the end of the game, UNC got a TD but their 2 pt conversion was incomplete & NCSt rec’d the onside kick leading 27-25 & later with NC pinned at their 5 NCSt tacked on a safety for a misleading final...

Iowa has led or been tied with 4:00 to go in all of their losses this year...Wisconsin RB’s Montee Ball & James White became the 2nd pair of Badgers to rush for 150+ in the same game, the first duo since 1973 when Billy Marek (226) & Ken Starch (184) did it vs Wyoming. Scott Tolzien hit his first 13 passes which made it 24 straight including the end of LW’s blowout win vs Indiana. Michigan’s Denard Robinson set the FBS record for most rushing yards in a season by a QB (1538) topping AF’s Beau Morgan’s mark & became the first player in NCAA history with 1,500 yards rushing & 2,000 passing in the same year. UW led 24-0 at the half with a 379-124 yd edge. UM rallied to 31-14 & 38-21 & even 41-28 but got no closer...

South Carolina was coming off its big win over Florida but Troy fmbl’d the opening KO & SC got a 17 yd drive for a TD. Later Troy fumbled a punt snap & SC went 29/2pl for a TD to lead 21-0. Later, after a fmbl they drove 7 yds for a TD & then got a 22 yd IR TD with 1:42 left in the half. Troy, on the last play of the 1H, threw a pass that was int’d & ret’d 56 yds for a TD & SC led 56-7. Alshon Jeffery became SC’s single season school record holder with 1,210 yds topping Sidney Rice’s 2005 record...

While it was an Indiana HG, Penn St’s white outnumbered IU’s red 3-1 at FedEx Field. The game was tied at 24 when PSU missed a 43 yd FG but they blk’d a punt for a TD late 3Q & after an int added a 35 yd FG. After IU was SOD, PSU drove 56/12pl & got ahead ATS with a TD with 3:20 left. IU punted on 4&9 with 2:01 left...

Duke had 22-19 FD & 443-410 yd edges but GT was fortunate to come away with the win. Duke led 13-6 at the half with a 227-136 yd edge. The key play of the game happened with GT trailing 13-9. Duke had a FD at the GT14 threatening to make it a 20-9 game but was int’d & ret’d 85 yds for a TD & instead of leading by 11, they trailed 16-13.

Stanford scored on every poss with Andrew Luck on the field going up 48-7. This was the most lopsided loss for Cal in the rivalry since Stanford beat them 41-0 back in 1930. Brock Mansion fmbl’d on the 3rd play setting up an SU score & it was all downhill from there. In fact, SU had a 312-119 yd edge at the half & led 31-0.

UCF returned the opening KO vs Tulane for a TD & after a pair of TO’s got 4 & 29 yd drives rolling to a 38-0 lead in their 55-14 win. TU was playing without starting QB Ryan Griffin & Kevin Moore hit 15-34-156 delivering an Early Bird POW winner on UCF as the line went from 14’ to 17’...

LSU got another narrow escape, this time vs Mississippi. Houston Nutt is known for knocking off Top 5 teams & UM led 24-23 after 3Q’s & also led 30-29 with 8:49 left. Markeith Summers got a 65 yd TD pass with 4:57 left to give Mississippi the lead but unfortunately he dove into the EZ so UM had to kick off from its own 15 & LSU started at midfield setting up the game winning TD drive with :44 left.
