    Re: 2019 NCAA Division I College Football Season Thread (FBS and FCS)

    There was no drama needed in the Carrier Dome.

    The #1 ranked team in the nation, the Clemson Tigers, blew out the Syracuse Orange, 41-6.

    Clemson QB Trevor Lawrence completed 22 of 39 passes for 395 yards and three touchdowns and added 42 yards on the ground and a score.

    The Clemson defense sacked Tommy DeVito eight times and allowed only 187 yards.

    Jalen Hurts continues to dazzle as the #5 ranked Oklahoma Sooners sent Chip Kelly's UCLA Bruins to 0-3 after a 48-14 destruction inside the Rose Bowl.

    Hurts completed 15 of 20 passes for 289 yards and three touchdowns and added 150 and a major on the ground.

    BB55's Three Studs and Three Duds - College Football: Week 3

    Three Studs
    1. Kansas State Wildcats
    Why? Legendary K-State head coach Bill Snyder's successor and former North Dakota State Bison head coach Chris Klieman is off to a great start with the Wildcats at 3-0 overall since 2015. If K-State keeps it up, they can cause a lot of havoc in the final Big XII standings.

    2. Central Florida Knights and Boise State Broncos
    Why? Arguably the two main contenders for the best Group of Five team are 3-0 overall. UCF demolished a rudderless Stanford Cardinal side, 45-27 with Dillon Gabriel leading the way.

    The Knights have another quality Power Five test in front of them in the Pittsburgh Panthers inside Heinz Field.

    As for Boise State, they're 3-0 overall before tackling their Mountain West portion of their schedule.

    3. The Pacific-12 Conference not named the two L.A. teams, Colorado and Stanford
    Why? The rest of the much maligned Pacific-12 Conference won their games and should have some teams ranked in the polls.

    Three Duds
    1. USC Trojans and UCLA Bruins
    Why? Things are not bright for Clay Helton and the Southern California Trojans after laying an egg against the BYU Cougars in overtime. With Lynn Swann resigning as athletic director, the hot seat is getting hotter for Helton.

    Meanwhile in Westwood, it should be rock bottom for Chip Kelly and the California-Los Angeles Bruins as they were destroyed by the Oklahoma Sooners and are 0-3 overall.

    2. Michigan State Spartans
    Why? Looks like Mark Dantonio will be out of a job in East Lansing if this keeps up.

    Herm Edwards and the Arizona State Sun Devils beat Sparty again thanks to three missed field goals from Michigan State kicker Matt Coghlin missing three field goals with the third one had to be retaken after the Spartans had 12-men on the field after they thought they tied the game at 10 a piece.
    https://twitter.com/barstoolbets/sta...18105364275201

    3. Illinois Fighting Illini head coach Lovie Smith
    Why? Lovie Smith and the Illini had a chance go to 3-0 overall before Big Ten play. However, the Eastern Michigan Eagles held off the Illini despite a 14-point comeback to win at the death with a field goal, 34-31.

    Smith and the Illini need four wins in Big Ten play to become bowl eligible and five to solidify a bowl spot.

    Or else, the Illini will hand Smith the pink slip.

    Re: 2019 NCAA Division I College Football Season Thread (FBS and FCS)

    Another quarterback replacement dampened Clay Helton and the Southern California Trojans' upset scalp over the #10 ranked Utah Utes inside L.A. Memorial Coliseum, 30-23.

    USC lost J.T. Daniels for the season with a knee injury in Week 1 and under the Friday Night lights, the Trojans saw Kedon Slovis knocked out with a head injury on USC's first drive of the game after a big hit.
    https://www.espn.com/college-footbal...takes-hard-hit

    Matt Fink took over and completed 21 of 30 passes for 351 yards and three touchdowns with Michael Pittman Jr. snagging 10 balls for 232 yards and a major.

    Utes QB Tyler Huntley had 270 total yards and a two-yard touchdown pass to Cole Fotheringham in a losing effort, but the USC defense sacked him twice including one for a safety in the all Pac-12 South battle.

    Meanwhile in the Smurf Turf, the #20 ranked Boise State Broncos kicked off their Mountain West portion of their schedule beating Maynerd's Air Force Falcons, 30-19.

    Boise State QB Hank Bachmeier completed 19 of 26 passes for 263 yards and two touchdowns while Robert Mahone led all players with 73 yards on the ground and two scores.

    Air Force QB Donald Hammond III had 145 total yards and two total offensive touchdowns, but had the only turnover of the game with an interception.

    Re: 2019 NCAA Division I College Football Season Thread (FBS and FCS)

    The heat in Ann Arbor has intensified to another level.

    Jim Harbaugh and the #11 ranked Michigan Wolverines were trounced by the #13 ranked Wisconsin Badgers 35-14 inside Camp Randall Stadium.

    Paul Chryst and the Badgers trampled the Michigan defense with their running game as the Wolverines yielded 359 yards on the ground on 57 carries.

    Bagders RB Jonathan Taylor stampeded the Michigan defense with 203 yards on 10 carries and two touchdowns while added two touchdown runs.

    However, Garrett Groshek's leg injury is a concern for the Badgers.

    The Wisconsin defense completely neutralized Michigan as they battered Shea Patterson and Dylan McCaffrey like pinatas and had four takeaways. Michigan also went 0 for 10 on third-down conversions.

    Patterson tried to get Michigan back in the game with 244 passing yards and two touchdowns, but it wasn't enough.

    Meanwhile in Tuscaloosa, the #2 ranked Alabama Crimson Tide was too good for the Southern Miss Golden Eagles in a 49-7 rout.

    Alabama QB Tua Tagovailoa completed 17 of 21 passes for 293 yards and five touchdowns with Jerry Jeudy and Henry Ruggs III snagging two each.

    In the Swamp, the #9 ranked Florida Gators manhandled the Tennessee Volunteers, 34-3.

    Kyle Trask made his first start as Gators QB filling in for the injured Feleipe Franks, completing 20 of 28 passes for 293 yards and two touchdowns despite throwing two interceptions.

    Lamical Perine led all rushers with 62 and a score.

    The Vols continue to have problems with Jarrett Guarantano being benched after throwing two picks.

    The Gators defense had four sacks and four takeaways in the victory.

    The #23 ranked California Golden Bears added offense to their 4-0 start overall after a 28-20 victory over the Ole Miss Rebels.

    Cal QB Chase Garbers completed 23 of 35 passes for 357 yards and four touchdowns.

    Ole Miss QB Matt Corral tried to get Ole Miss back in the game with 322 total yards and a touchdown run, but Ole Miss went 5 for 17 on third-down conversions.

    Joe Burrow was two yards shy of 400 as he had a whale of game as the #4 ranked LSU Tigers clobbered the Vanderbilt Commodores, 66-38 in Nashville.

    Burrow completed 25 of 34 passes for 398 yards and six touchdowns with Ja'Marr Chase catching four of them along with 10 balls for 229 yards.

    Clyde Edwards-Helaire added 106 yards and a major on 14 carries.

    Miami (Ohio) scored a safety and field goal to go up 5-0. Ohio State led 49-5 at halftime, and it's 49-5 early in the second half. I wonder if Miami (Ohio) broke the record for biggest halftime deficit by a team that had the first two scores of the game, but I have no way of finding out.

    Re: 2019 NCAA Division I College Football Season Thread (FBS and FCS)

    The #6 ranked Ohio State Buckeyes put themselves in cruise control after turning a 5-0 deficit to a 76-5 vaporizing over the Miami (OH) Redhawks inside the Horseshoe.

    Miami (OH) had a safety off a sack on Justin Fields and a 21-yard field goal from Sam Sloman to take a 5-0 lead a little over halfway through the first quarter.

    It was all Buckeyes from there.

    Fields completed 14 of 21 passes for 223 yards and four touchdowns and added two touchdown runs.

    With Fields getting a rest after his rampant first half, Chris Chugunov and Gunnar Hoak tacked on three more touchdown passes combined in the second half.

    Steele Chambers added 63 yards and a score on eight carries.

    Meanwhile in College Station, the road team continues to dominate in the Auburn Tigers-Texas A&M rivalry.

    The #8 ranked Tigers defeated the #17 ranked Aggies, 28-10 at Kyle Field in a crucial SEC West tilt.

    Gus Malzahn helped out his true freshman QB Bo Nix with the running game as Auburn outgained Texas A&M on the ground, 193-56.

    Auburn RB JaTarvious Whitlow led all rushers with 67 yards and a score while WR Anthony Schwartz took a jet sweep 57 yards to the house.

    Jimbo Fisher had to rely on Kellen Mond for the A&M offense with 335 passing yards and two touchdowns, but the Auburn defense sacked him three times.

    It was no magic this time for the Brigham Young Cougars as the #22 ranked Washington Huskies brought BYU back to Earth with a 45-19 romp.

    Washington QB Jacob Eason completed 24 of 28 passes for 290 yards and three touchdowns.

    Sean McGrew added 110 rushing yards and Richard Newton chipped in with 80 and a score.

    Chris Petersen's Huskies also did it on defense with two sacks and three takeaways including a Brandon Wellington 69-yard scoop-and-score off a Zach Wilson lost fumble and on special teams with Aaron Fuller who had 179 all-purpose yards and two touchdowns including a 88-yard punt return.

    Re: 2019 NCAA Division I College Football Season Thread (FBS and FCS)

    There were two upsets in the Saturday afternoon docket this week.

    The Pittsburgh Panthers handed the #15 ranked Central Florida Knights their first loss of the season, 35-34.

    Pitt jumped out to a 21-0 lead with 8:58 left in the second quarter.

    A.J. Davis, who had 65 rushing yards in the game, found paydirt from two yards out for the only points of the first quarter as Pitt led 7-0.

    Kenny Pickett found Maurice Ffrench from two yards out to give Pitt a 14-0 lead early in the second quarter.

    The Pitt special teams chipped in after Vincent Davis took a blocked punt 18 yards into the house to make it 21-0 Pitt with 8:58 left in the second quarter.

    But UCF went on a 31-0 run to take a 31-21 lead with 6:19 left in the third quarter.

    Adrian Killins Jr. got UCF on the board with a 11-yard touchdown run and Dylan Barnas booted a 43-yard field goal to make it a 21-10 ballgame at halftime.

    UCF QB Dillon Gabriel found Gabriel Davis twice from 10 yards and 28 yards out in the third quarter and Otis Anderson's 88-yard punt return capped off a 21-point third quarter as the Knights led 31-21.

    Nick Patti stopped the UCF barrage with a six-yard touchdown pass to Dontavius Butler-Jenkins to help Pitt pull to within three, 31-28 heading into the fourth.

    Barnas kicked a 28-yard field goal to give UCF a 34-28 lead with 4:36 left in regulation.

    But Pitt took a page out of the Philadelphia Eagles Super Bowl 52 playbook when Pitt WR Aaron Mathews tossed a three-yard touchdown pass to Pickett to give the Panthers a 35-34 lead with 56 seconds left.

    UCF had a chance to respond with a field goal, but UCF turned the ball over on downs.

    Gabriel completed 25 of 42 passes for 338 yards and two touchdowns, but was picked off twice and was sacked six times.

    Pickett had 288 total scrimmage yards and two total touchdowns to hand UCF their first regular season loss since November 26, 2016 to the South Florida Bulls.

    In Fort Worth, the #25 ranked Texas Christian Horned Frogs saw their 0 go after the Southern Methodist Mustangs outlasted them, 41-38.

    Former Texas Longhorns QB Shane Buechele led the way completing 23 of 34 passes for 288 yards and two touchdowns and added a touchdown run.

    TCU QB Max Duggan tried to get the Horned Frogs back in the game with 188 passing yards and three touchdowns and Darius Anderson chipping in with 161 on the ground and two scores, but the SMU defense had three sacks and three fumble recoveries in the victory.

    The #1 ranked team in the nation will stay at #1 for another week as the Clemson Tigers routed the Charlotte 49ers, 52-10.

    Trevor Lawrence completed seven of nine passes for 94 yards and two touchdowns.

    The Clemson rushing attack tacked on 235 yards on 39 carries with Travis Etienne leading the way with 61 and a score and Lyn-J Dixon chipping in with 58 and a major.

    The Clemson defense had two sacks and a 65-yard pick-six from K'Von Wallace.

    #16 ranked Oregon Ducks added more woes to the Stanford Cardinal with a 21-6 victory down on The Farm.

    Ducks QB Justin Herbert completed 19 of 24 passes for 259 yards and three touchdowns, two to Jacob Breeland.

    The Oregon defense sacked Stanford QB K.J. Costello five times and picked him off once.

    #16 ranked Virginia Cavaliers rallied from a 17-0 second quarter deficit to pull away from the Old Dominion Monarchs, 28-17.

    Old Dominion scored the first 17 points of the game.

    Nick Rice started the scoring with a 21-yard field goal and Monarchs QB Stone Smartt scampered in with a 10-yard touchdown run to give Old Dominion a 10-0 lead after the first quarter.

    Smartt found Matt Geiger with a 47-yard touchdown pass as the Monarchs made it 17-0 with 10:32 to go in the second quarter.

    But it was all Virginia from there.

    Virginia QB Bryce Perkins got the Cavaliers on the board with a eight-yard touchdown run as Virginia trailed 17-7 at halftime.

    Smartt, who had 206 passing yards in the contest, threw his only mistake of the game, a pick-six to Zane Zandier as Virginia kept getting closer heading to the fourth quarter, down 17-14 after three.

    Wayne Taulapapa went up the gut from seven yards out to give Virginia their first lead of the game, 21-17 with 10:16 to go and Perkins, who 210 total yards in the game, found Joe Reed from 25 yards out for the sealer with 7:33 left.

    The Cavaliers defense sacked Smartt six times.

    Re: 2019 NCAA Division I College Football Season Thread (FBS and FCS)

    Brian Kelly and the #7 Notre Dame Fighting Irish and Kirby Smart and the #3 ranked Georgia Bulldogs dreamed about making another appearance in the College Football Playoffs.

    It was the Bulldogs who boosted their chances as they held off the Irish, 23-17 inside Sanford Stadium.

    After a scoreless first quarter, Notre Dame drew first blood in Athens as Ian Book found Cole Kmet with a one-yard dink to give the Irish a 7-0 lead with 10:39 left in the second quarter.

    But the Notre Dame defense had problems containing D'Andre Swift.

    Swift, who had 98 yards in the game on 18 carries, tied the game at 7-7 with a three-yard touchdown run with 2:27 left in the first half.

    Jonathan Doerer nailed a 27-yard field goal before halftime to give the Irish a 10-7 lead.

    It was all Georgia in the third quarter as Rodrigo Blankenship booted two field goals from 40 and 31 yards out to give the Bulldogs a 13-10 lead.

    Georgia QB Jake Fromm, who had 183 yards on 20 of 26 passing, found Lawrence Cager from 15 yards out to extend the Bulldogs' lead to 20-10 with 13:19 left in regulation.

    Blakenship connected from 43 yards out for his third made field goal of the game to make it 23-10 with 6:54 left.

    Book and the Irish refused to quit as he threw his second touchdown of the game to Chase Claypool from four yards out to cut the deficit to 23-17 with 3:12 left.

    The Irish need a touchdown to at least tie the game, but Book and the Irish turned the ball over on downs and Georgia survives.

    Book had 276 passing yards and two touchdowns in a losing effort, but threw two picks and the Georgia defense blanketed Notre Dame's rushing attack yielding only 45 yards on 13 carries.

    Meanwhile in Austin, the #12 ranked Texas Longhorns held off the Oklahoma State Cowboys, 36-30.

    Sam Ehlinger had 351 total yards including 281 through the air and four touchdown passes.
    Devin Duvernay was the focal point who caught 12 balls for 108 yards and a score.

    Oklahoma State QB Spencer Sanders had 377 total yards and a rushing major and Chuba Hubbard adding 121 and two majors on 37 carries, but the Longhorn defense picked off Sanders twice in the victory.

    Re: 2019 NCAA Division I College Football Season Thread (FBS and FCS)

    Chip Kelly and the UCLA Bruins' first win of 2019 was a crazy one in Pullman.

    The Bruins, who trailed by 32 points in the third quarter, escaped with a 67-63 victory over the #19 ranked Washington State Cougars. Yes, that's right, 67-63!

    Bruins QB Dorian Thompson-Robinson started the madness with a 14-yard touchdown pass to Joshua Kelley almost two minutes into the game.

    Wazzou QB Anthony Gordon replied almost three minutes later with a four-yard strike to Easop Winston Jr. as the game was tied at 7.

    JJ Molson kicked a 31-yard field goal to give UCLA a 10-7 lead after the first quarter.

    It was the Gordon show in the second quarter as the Washington State gunslinger threw four touchdowns in the second frame as Mike Leach's Cougars led 35-17 at halftime.

    Winston Jr. caught two of them, a 28-yard grab and a three-yard dink to complete his receiving hat trick, and Travell Harris and Davontavean Martin chipped in with one each.

    Demetric Felton kept UCLA in the game momentarily with a 100-yard kickoff return major a little more than eight minutes into the frame as UCLA trailed, 21-17.

    However, the Gordon barrage continued in the third quarter as Renard Bell hauled in a 35-yard strike and Dezmon Patmon snagged a six-yard touchdown as Wazzou led 49-17 with 6:52 left in the third frame.

    But Thompson-Robinson refused to let the Bruins quit.

    The UCLA gunslinger banged his way in from one-yard out and delivered two touchdown strikes to Chase Cota from 37 yards out and Felton from 94 yards out to cut Wazzou's lead to 49-38 heading into the fourth quarter.

    Thompson-Robinson helped UCLA pull to within three, 49-46 just 32 seconds into the fourth quarter with a seven-yard connection to Devin Asiasi. UCLA also converted the two-points when Thompson-Robinson find Cota.

    Gordon replied for Wazzou, however, when Winston Jr. snatched his fourth touchdown of the game to make it a 56-46 ballgame with a little over 10 minutes remaining in regulation.

    Thompson-Robinson found the end zone with his legs with a three-yard score to make it a 56-53 game with a three-yard scamper.

    The UCLA momentum continued as Kyle Philips helped the Bruins' special teams score their second touchdown of the game with a 69-yard punt return as the Bruins led for the first time since the first quarter, 60-56 with 7:31 to play.

    The pendulum swung Washington State's way with Gordon throwing his ninth touchdown of the game, a 65-yarder to Max Borghi to make it a 63-60 slugfest with 6:11 to go.

    Thompson-Robinson replied as the Bruins led with a little over a minute remaining as he threw his fifth touchdown pass of the game to Felton from 15 yards out to give UCLA a 67-63 lead with 1:07 left.

    Thompson-Robinson completed 25 of 38 passes for 507 yards and five touchdowns and added 57 and two majors on the ground in the wild contest.

    Felton had 263 all-purpose yards and three total touchdowns in the game.

    Gordon and Wazzou needed a touchdown to take the lead again, but Gordon was sacked and lost a fumble to help the Bruins escape Pullman with the victory.

    Wazzou had six turnovers in the defeat including four lost fumbles.

    Gordon went 41 of 61 passing for 570 yards and nine touchdowns, but was sacked twice and had two interceptions.

    Winston Jr. caught 10 balls for 114 yards and four scores in a losing effort for Wazzou.

    Meanwhile in Tempe, Mel Tucker saw his Colorado Buffaloes grab their second scalp against a ranked opponent as the Buffs handed Herm Edwards and the #24 ranked Arizona State Sun Devils their first loss of the season, 34-31 inside Sun Devil Stadium.

    Colorado QB Steven Montez completed 23 of 30 passes for 337 yards and three touchdowns. All three touchdown passes went to Tony Brown who hauled in nine balls for 150 yards.

    Alex Fontenot added 89 rushing yards and a score.

    Arizona State hung around though as Jayden Daniels had 345 passing yards and two touchdowns and Eno Benjamin added 83 yards and two majors on the ground.

    James Stefanou was another hero for Colorado going 2/2 in field goals.

    BB55's Three Studs and Three Duds - College Football: Week 4

    Three Studs
    1. Auburn Tigers
    Why? Gus Malzahn completed Step 1 of his job security after Auburn grabbed a huge road win against the #17 ranked Texas A&M Aggies where the road team continues to dominate the series.

    Auburn now has two quality wins against ranked opponents in the Oregon Ducks in a neutral site and Texas A&M. Kevin Steele has the Auburn defense playing well especially against the run.

    If Bo Nix improves his game, the Auburn offense will be better.

    2. UCLA Bruins QB Dorian Thompson-Robinson
    Why? Chip Kelly finally saw his true offense showing up as Dorian Thompson-Robinson had 559 total offensive yards and seven total touchdowns while getting plastered to help the Bruins win their first game of 2019 over the #19 ranked Washington State Cougars.

    3. SMU Mustangs
    Why? The Southern Methodist Mustangs broke a lot of streaks in their victory over the #25 ranked Texas Christian Horned Frogs.

    SMU's win over TCU was only the program's third win over a Power-Five conference team since beating Washington State in 2010 and the Kansas Jayhawks in 2000.

    The victory over TCU was also the Mustangs' first true road win since beating the Arkansas Razorbacks in 1996.

    What a way to go to 4-0 overall, SMU.

    Three Duds
    1. Jim Harbaugh and the Michigan Wolverines
    Why? Jim Harbaugh is in his fifth season coaching the Maize and Blue in Ann Arbor and he saw Michigan lose their last three games by 20 points or more: 23 to the Ohio State Buckeyes in November 2018, 26 points to the Florida Gators in the Peach Bowl and now, 21 points to Jonathan Taylor and the Wisconsin Badgers inside Madison's Camp Randall Stadium.

    The hot seat is getting hotter for Harbaugh unless something changes in their remaining schedule.

    2. Tennessee Volunteers QBs Jarrett Guarantano and Brian Maurer
    Why? Jeremy Pruitt continues to see Tennessee's woes especially on offense. Jarrett Guarantano and Brian Maurer combined to complete 14 of 28 passes for 151 yards and three interceptions in an ugly loss to the Florida Gators.

    Yikes.

    3. Arkansas Razorbacks
    Why? Things are getting uglier in Fayetteville as the Arkansas Razorbacks lost to the San Jose State Spartans at home.

    Arkansas lost to a team that is 3-22 in their last two seasons.

    Arkansas QB Nick Starkel made it worse with five interceptions. Ouch!

    Re: 2019 NCAA Division I College Football Season Thread (FBS and FCS)

    The Pacific-12 Conference is living up to its billing as a beat'em up football conference again.

    The Arizona State Sun Devils made the #15 ranked California Golden Bears fall back to Earth with a sickening thud with a 24-17 victory in Berkeley.

    Eno Benjamin started the scoring with an 11-yard touchdown run almost seven minutes into the game before Chase Garbers found Trevon Clark in the end zone from six yards out to tie the game at 7-7 after the first quarter.

    However, Garbers had to leave the game with an arm injury.
    https://www.espn.com/college-footbal...ght-arm-injury

    After a scoreless second quarter, Cal took their first lead of the game with Christopher Brown Jr. banging his way in from one-yard out as the Bears lead 14-7 with 9:16 left in the third quarter.

    But Benjamin helped Arizona State pull level with his second rushing score of the game from four yards out to make it a 14-14 ballgame heading into the fourth.

    Greg Thomas kicked a 47-yard field goal to give Cal a 17-14 lead with 10:50 remaining in regulation.

    However, the Sun Devils scored the last 10 points of the game to escape Berkeley with the victory.

    Benjamin, who had 100 yards rushing in the game, completed his rushing hat trick with a three-yard plunge up the gut and Christian Zendejas booted a 43-yard field goal to seal it.

    The Sun Devils defense also played a role with three sacks and an interception as all Pac-12 teams have at least one loss and the conference needs a lot of help if one of their teams want to sneak into the College Football Playoffs.

    Meanwhile, James Franklin and the #12 ranked Penn State Nitany Lions pitched a 59-0 shutout on the Maryland Terrapins.

    Penn State QB Sean Clifford completed 26 of 31 passes for 398 yards and three touchdowns and lead the Nitany Lions in rushing with 54 yards and a score.

    Maryland QB Josh Jackson had a disastrous game throwing two interceptions, sacked four times and had a personal foul penalty.

    Re: 2019 NCAA Division I College Football Season Thread (FBS and FCS)

    The #6 ranked Oklahoma Sooners routed the Texas Tech Red Raiders, 55-16.

    Sooners QB Jalen Hurts completed 16 of 23 passes for 413 yards and three touchdowns. All three to CeeDee Lamb who also caught six balls for 183 yards.

    Hurts also added 70 rushing yards and a score.

    Trey Sermon chipped in with 76 rushing yards and two majors on seven carries as the Sooners end September at 4-0 overall.

    Meanwhile, Jimbo Fisher and the #23 ranked Texas A&M Aggies had to gut out a 31-27 victory over the Arkansas Razorbacks before taking on the Alabama Crimson Tide in two weeks inside Kyle Field.

    A&M drew first blood inside Arlington's AT&T Stadium as Kellen Mond connected with Ainias Smith from nine yards out as the Aggies led their Southwestern Classic rivals, 7-0 after the first quarter.

    Connor Limpert got Arkansas on the board with a 46-yard field goal to make it a 7-3 ballgame early in the second quarter.

    Isaiah Spiller made it 14-3 Aggies with a four-yard touchdown run with 9:48 to go in the first half.

    Former A&M Aggies QB Nick Starkel threw an interception and left the game with an injury while trying to make a tackle.

    But Arkansas had a defensive touchdown when Spiller lost the ball and De'Jon Harris pounced on it for a six-yard scoop-and-score as Arkansas trailed 14-10.

    Ben Hicks. filling in for the injured Starkel and threw for 188 yards in the contest, found Mike Woods from 13 yards out to give the Razorbacks their first lead of the game at 17-14 with 1:55 left in the second quarter.

    The Aggies replied when Mond threw his second touchdown pass of the contest to Quartney Davis up the middle from 22 yards out as A&M led 21-17 at halftime.

    Devwah Whaley helped Arkansas scored the only points in the third quarter with an 11-yard scamper as the Razorbacks led 24-21 heading into the fourth.

    But the Razorbacks defense had no answer for Mond as he found Davis again from three yards out to give A&M a 27-24 lead with 12:21 to go in regulation.

    Limpert's second field goal of the game from 40 yards out helped Arkansas pull to within a point, 28-27 with 8:46 left before Seth Small kicked a 50-yard bomb to make it a 31-27 lead with 3:52 left.

    Mond completed 23 of 35 passes for 251 yards and three touchdowns despite being sacked five times.

    Re: 2019 NCAA Division I College Football Season Thread (FBS and FCS)

    #8 ranked Wisconsin Badgers go to 4-0 overall after holding off the Northwestern Wildcats, 24-15.

    Badgers RB Jonathan Taylor, who had 119 yards on the ground in the game, started the scoring with a 13-yard scamper up the gut for a 7-0 lead with 9:16 left in the first quarter.

    Charlie Kuhbander booted a 29-yard field goal to make it a 7-3 Wisconsin lead at halftime after a scoreless second quarter.

    In the second half, it was the Wisconsin defense that stole the show.

    Hunter Johnson coughed up the ball and Matt Henningsen recovered the lost fumble for the only points of the third quarter as the Badgers lead 14-3 after three quarters.

    Collin Larsh slotted home a 36-yard field goal to extend the lead to 14 points, 17-3 with 12:58 left in regulation.

    Almost 90 seconds later, Noah Burks had a 68-yard pick-six off Northwestern backup QB Aidan Smith as Wisconsin led 24-3.

    Drake Anderson had a four-yard touchdown run to cut the lead to 15 points, but failed on the two-point conversion.

    Smith found JJ Jefferson up the middle from 15 yards out to make it a nine-point deficit with 4:10 left, but also failed on the two-point conversion.

    The Badgers defense had five sacks and three takeaways with two defensive scores.

    Jim Harbaugh and the #20 ranked Michigan Wolverines had a huge bounce back performance after pitching a 52-0 shutout on the Rutgers Scarlet Knights inside the Big House.

    Much-maligned Michigan QB Shea Patterson completed 17 of 23 passes for 276 yards and a touchdown and showed off his wheels with a rushing hat trick.

    Michigan's next opponent in Michigan Stadium next week, the #14 ranked Iowa Hawkeyes were too good for the Middle Tennessee State Blue Raiders, 48-3.

    Hawkeye QB Nate Stanley completed 17 of 25 passes for 276 yards and two touchdowns while the Hawkeyes rushing attack trampled the Blue Raiders defense with 351 yards on 51 carries.

    Re: 2019 NCAA Division I College Football Season Thread (FBS and FCS)

    The #1 ranked team in the nation survived a scare on the road.

    Dabo Swinney and the Clemson Tigers held off Mack Brown and the North Carolina Tar Heels in Chapel Hill, 21-20.

    UNC QB Sam Howell gave Brent Venables' defense fits as the true freshman QB completed 15 of 27 passes for 144 yards and two touchdowns.

    But Travis Etienne and Trevor Lawrence kept pace as the game was tied at 14 a piece after three quarters.

    Etienne had 67 yards on the ground and a 13 yard touchdown run in the second quarter and Lawrence had 45 on the ground and a three-yard touchdown run to make it a 14-14 deadlock at halftime.

    After a scoreless third quarter, Clemson took their first lead in the game as Lawrence found Tee Higgins from 38 yards out to give the Tigers a 21-20 lead with 9:38 left in regulation.

    Lawrence completed 18 of 30 passes for 206 yards and a touchdown in the game and had 251 total yards and two total touchdowns.

    The Tar Heels pulled to within a point, 21-20 with Javonte Williams punching in a one-yard touchdown with 1:17 left.

    Brown decided to roll the dice and go for two, but the Clemson defense, who had three sacks on Howell in the game, stuffed Howell.

    North Carolina tried to recover the ensuing onside kick, but Clemson deflected it out of bounds to preserve the victory.

    The #2 ranked Alabama Crimson Tide rolled over the Ole Miss Rebels with a 31-0 second quarter romp in a 59-31 victory.

    Alabama QB Tua Tagovailoa completed 26 of 36 passes for 418 yards and six touchdowns and added a touchdown run.

    Devonta Smith caught 11 balls for 274 yards and five scores.

    Ole Miss QB John Rhys Plumlee had 250 total yards and three touchdowns in a losing effort.

    The #9 ranked Florida Gators had no problems with the Towson Tigers in a 38-0 whitewash inside the Swamp.

    Florida QB Kyle Trask completed 18 of 20 passes for 188 yards and three touchdowns, two to Kyle Pitts. Trask also added a touchdown run.

    Dameon Pierce added 84 rushing yards and a major on six carries.

    The Gators preserved the shutout with four sacks and three takeaways.

    Re: 2019 NCAA Division I College Football Season Thread (FBS and FCS)

    Brian Kelly and the #10 ranked Notre Dame Fighting Irish handed the #18 ranked Virginia Cavaliers their first loss of the season in a 35-20 victory inside Notre Dame Stadium.

    Virginia QB Bryce Perkins gave the Irish defense a handfull after completing 30 of 43 passes for 334 yards and two touchdowns, but the Irish defense sacked him eight times and had five takeaways including a Adetokunbo Ogundeji 23-yard return score off a Perkins' lost fumble.

    Tony Jones Jr. was another hero for the Irish as he had 131 rushing yards and found the end zone three times on 18 carries.

    #17 ranked Washington Huskies doubled up the #21 ranked USC Trojans in Seattle, 28-14.

    Salvon Ahmed led the way for the Huskies with 153 yards on the ground and a score on 17 carries.

    USC QB Matt Fink had 163 passing yards and two total touchdowns, but threw three interceptions as the Trojans lose for the second time in 2019.

    #25 ranked Michigan State Spartans outlasted the Indiana Hoosiers in a high-scoring tilt in East Lansing, 40-31.

    Michigan State QB Brian Lewerke completed 18 of 36 passes for 300 yards and three touchdowns including two to Darrell Stewart Jr.

    But Indiana hanged around as Indiana QB Michael Penix Jr. completed 33 of 42 passing for 318 yards and three touchdowns and added a rushing major.

    Michigan State took a late lead with five seconds left when Matt Coghlin slotted home a 44-yard field goal as the Spartans had a 34-31 lead with five seconds left.

    Indiana tried to replied as Penix Jr. found Whop Philyor for a six-yard gain.

    But Philyor, who had 15 grabs for 149 yards and two scores in the game, fumbled and Michael Dowell scooped it and took it 18 yards to the house for the sealer as time expired.

    The Buckeyes will take on the Michigan State Spartans inside the Horseshoe next week as they bid for a 6-0 mark halfway through their season.

    JaTarvious Whitlow chipped in with 55 rushing yards and a hat trick.

    Mike Gundy and the Oklahoma State Cowboys handed Chris Klieman and the #24 ranked Kansas State Wildcats their first loss of the season after doubling them up 26-13 inside Boone Pickens Stadium.

    Chuba Hubbard led the way for the Cowboys with 296 rushing yards and a touchdown on 25 carries.
