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

    The #12 ranked Baylor Bears go to 8-0 overall as they edged the West Virginia Mountaineers, 17-14.

    Baylor QB Charlie Brewer completed 20 of 26 passes for 277 yards and two touchdowns, but was sacked seven times.

    Brewer's opposite number Austin Kendall completed 20 of 39 passes for 205 yards and a touchdown, but threw an interception.

    Winston Wright also kept the Mountaineers in the game with a 95-yard kickoff return to tie the game at 14-14 heading into the fourth.

    John Mayers helped the Bears score the only points of the fourth with a 36-yard field goal.

    West Virginia didn't help themselves with going 3/17 on third-down conversions and had two turnovers including the Kendall interception.

    Baylor had their own problems securing the football with three lost fumbles.

    The Bears will go on the road to take on the TCU Horned Frogs next on November 9.

    Meanwhile, the #20 ranked Appalachian State Mountaineers suffered their first loss of the season as the Georgia Southern Eagles kept pace in the Sun Belt East Division race with a 24-21 scalp.

    Georgia Southern used their rushing attack as they had 337 yards in the win.

    Wesley Kennedy III had 145 yards and two touchdowns on 13 carries while Shai Werts added 83 and a score as the Eagles took a 24-7 lead into the fourth quarter.

    Appalachian State QB Zac Thomas kept the Mountaineers in the game completing 25 of 51 passes for 271 yards and three scores, but his team took a big hit in their bid for a New Year's Six bowl game with that loss.

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

    Jim Harbaugh and the #14 ranked Michigan Wolverines head off to their bye week with a 38-7 romp over the Maryland Terrapins.

    Shea Patterson completed 13 of 22 passes for 151 yards and a touchdown while Hassan Haskins added 60 rushing yards and a major.

    Zach Charbonnet added two touchdown runs.

    Michigan takes on their bitter in-state rival Michigan State Spartans inside Michigan Stadium where the Spartans have won eight of the last 11 meetings overall on November 16.

    Meanwhile, #23 ranked Wake Forest Demon Deacons go to 7-1 overall after blowing out the North Carolina State Wolfpack, 44-10.

    Wake QB Jamie Newman completed 25 of 38 passes for 287 yards and three touchdowns and added two touchdown runs.

    Jack Freudenthal had a receiving hat trick as he caught all three Newman touchdown passes.

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

    The #16 ranked Notre Dame Fighting Irish kept their very slim New Year's Six bowl game chances alive after outlasting a gamed Virginia Tech Hokies squad, 21-20.

    Ian Book started the scoring for the Irish with a eight-yard touchdown strike to Cole Kmet.

    But the Hokies responded before the end of the first quarter when Quincy Patterson II found Damon Hazelton from eight yards out to tie the game at seven after the first quarter.

    Patterson II completed eight of 28 passes for 139 yards with that touchdown and led the Hokies in rushing with 77 yards.

    However, the Hokies had two turnovers and went 4/16 on third down.

    Book threw his second touchdown of the game with a four-yard delivery to Tommy Tremble almost four minutes into the second quarter as the Irish led 14-7.

    Notre Dame was driving to make it a 21-7 halftime lead with the ball inside the five-yard line with under 10 seconds to go.

    But Jafar Armstrong fumbled after a one-yard loss and Divine Deablo scooped it up for a 98-yard touchdown.

    Brian Johnson slotted home two field goals, one in the third quarter from 44 yards out and the other in the fourth, a 25-yarder, to give Virginia Tech their first lead of the game at 20-14 with 13:25 left in regulation.

    Notre Dame had a chance to take the lead midway through the fourth quarter with the ball at the Hokies' three-yard line, but the Hokies defense stuffed them and Jonathan Doerer missed a 35-yard field goal.

    The Irish had the ball again with 3:29 left and Book wasn't going to let the Irish waste this chance as he scampered in from seven yards out to give the Irish a 21-20 lead with 29 seconds left.

    Book completed 29 of 53 passes for 341 yards and two touchdowns despite throwing two interceptions. The Irish had three turnovers in the game.

    Virginia Tech had a chance to reply, but Patterson II's pass was intercepted by Kyle Hamilton to preserve the Notre Dame victory.

    It was the Trevor Lawrence and Travis Etienne show in Death Valley as the #4 ranked Clemson Tigers walloped the Wofford Terriers, 59-14.

    Lawrence completed 12 of 16 passes for 218 yards and three touchdowns while Etienne added 212 yards and two majors on the ground on nine carries including a 86-yard scamper.

    Clemson needs to win both of their remaining ACC games including their home showdown against the Wake Forest Demon Deacons to book a spot in the ACC title game as ACC Atlantic Division champions.

    #22 ranked Kansas State Wildcats followed up their upset scalp on the Oklahoma Sooners last week with a 38-10 romp over their Sunflower Showdown rival Kansas Jayhawks.

    The K-State rushing attack trampled the KU defense with 342 yards on 60 carries.

    K-State QB Skylar Thompson had 127 of them and a rushing hat trick.

    The K-State defense kept Pooka Williams Jr. at bay as they conceded 61 on 14 carries.

    Carter Stanley threw two interceptions and was sacked four times as K-State takes on the Texas Longhorns next week.

    #20 ranked Auburn Tigers held off the Ole Miss Rebels, 20-14 heading into their bye week.

    Auburn QB Bo Nix completed 30 of 44 passes for 340 yards and added a touchdown run.

    John Rhys Plumlee had 92 rushing yards in a losing effort, but the Rebels can only muster up 266 yards and went 3/15 on third-downs.

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

    Inside Jacksonville, Florida's TIAA Bank Field, the #8 ranked Georgia Bulldogs held off the #6 Florida Gators, 24-17 in the World's Largest Outdoor Party.

    Georgia QB Jake Fromm won the duel over Florida QB Kyle Trask.

    Fromm completed 20 of 30 passes for 279 yards and two touchdowns while Trask had 257 passing yards and two scored on 21 of 33 completions in a losing effort.

    However, Georgia sacked Trask twice and converted 12 of 18 third-down conversions.

    Florida struggled on third-down conversions going 2/9 and had 21 yards rushing as the Bulldogs have a leg up on the SEC East Division race.

    Leaders for the Pacific-12 Championship Game race grabbed their wins this week.

    The #9 ranked Utah Utes go to 8-1 overall and 5-1 in Pac-12 play after rallying from a 14-3 deficit to win 33-28 inside Seattle's Husky Stadium.

    Washington QB Jacob Eason terrorized the Utes defense with two touchdown passes in the first half.

    Eason found Jordan Chin from 11 yards out as the Huskies led 7-0 after the first quarter.

    Redding got Utah on the board with a 31-yard field goal early in the second quarter before Eason threw his second touchdown of the game to Hunter Bryant from 34 yards out to make it 14-3 Washington with 12:19 left in the first half.

    But Utah kept it close with a 10-0 run to make it 14-13 Washington at halftime.

    Tyler Huntley found Zack Moss from nine yards out and Redding slotted a 32-yard field goal to help Utah trail by a point at recess.

    Eason threw his third touchdown of the game and his second to Bryant from 40 yards out as the Huskies led 21-13 with 8:15 left.

    But Utah applied the clamps on Eason as he was battered like a pinata with two sacks and forced two interceptions.

    One of them was a pick-six from Jaylon Johnson to make it 21-19 Washington heading into the fourth. Utah failed on the two-point try.

    Washington had three turnovers in the game.

    Huntley gave Utah their first lead of the game with a one-yard plunge as the Utes led 26-21 with 11:23 to go in regulation.

    Huntley completed 19 of 24 passes for 284 yards and two total touchdowns.

    Moss made it 33-21 with 4:52 left with a two-yard major as Moss had 145 total scrimmage yards and two total offensive touchdowns in the game.

    Eason threw his fourth touchdown pass of the game to Aaron Fuller on a three-yard dink to give the Huskies a chance trailing by five, 33-28 with 1:01 left, but failed to recover the onside kick.

    Eason completed 29 of 52 passing for 316 yards and four touchdowns, but was under duress all game long.

    Meanwhile in Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, the #7 ranked Oregon Ducks creamed the Southern California Trojans, 56-24 in a very chippy game to go to 8-1 overall and 6-0 in Pac-12 play.

    Oregon had 12 penalties for 157 yards while USC had eight for 92.

    USC took a 10-0 lead in the first quarter courtesy of a Kedon Slovis eight-yard touchdown strike to Drake London and Chase McGrath booted a 24-yard field goal.

    Despite throwing a first quarter, Ducks QB Justin Herbert took over the game completing 21 of 26 passes for 225 yards and three touchdowns and added a 10-yard touchdown run. Herbert had to leave for a couple of series after getting cheap shot however and CJ Verdell had only 12 yards on six carries while not playing in the second half.

    Juwan Johnson caught all three Herbert touchdown passes to go along with his seven grabs and 106 receiving yards.

    Slovis completed 32 of 57 passes for 264 yards and three touchdowns in a losing effort for the Trojans.

    However, Slovis also threw three interceptions and was sacked three times. USC had four turnovers in the defeat.

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

    The American Athletic Conference Championship Game picture became a little more clearer as we head into the final month of the regular season.

    Mike Norvell and the #24 ranked Memphis Tigers handed Sonny Dykes and #15 ranked Southern Methodist Mustangs their first loss of the season after a 54-48 victory.

    With the head-to-head edges over both SMU and the Navy Midshipmen, Memphis is in the driver's seat for the AAC West Division title.

    Memphis QB Brady White was one of the heroes as he completed 19 of 33 passes for 350 yards and three touchdowns as Memphis once led 54-32 with 9:31 remaining in regulation.

    But the day belonged to Tigers WR Antonio Gibson who had 386 all-purpose yards and three total touchdowns (one each in rushing, receiving and a kickoff return).

    SMU QB Shane Buechele completed 34 of 54 passes for 456 yards and three touchdowns in a losing effort as both SMU and Memphis go to 8-1 overall and 4-1 in AAC play after this game.

    Luke Fickell and the #17 ranked Cincinnati Bearcats remain undefeated in AAC play at 4-0 and are 7-1 overall after edging the East Carolina Pirates in another high-scoring clash, 46-43.

    Cincinnati RB Michael Warren II had 141 rushing yards and a hat trick on 18 carries to lead the way for the Bearcats who had to rally from 31-21 halftime and 40-28 third-quarter deficits.

    East Carolina QB Holton Ahlers completed 32 of 52 passes for 535 yards and four touchdowns and added a rushing score.

    However, Ahlers threw a pick-six to Ahmad Gardner and give Cincinnati a 43-40 lead with 4:38 left in regulation.

    East Carolina K Jake Verity slotted home a 43-yard field goal, his third of the game, to level the scores at 43 with 1:10 left.

    But the Bearcats have the ball last and Sam Crosa nailed a 32-yard field goal at the death to give his team the win.

    With four games left, Cincinnati needs to win all three remaining AAC East games to win their division.

    #21 ranked Boise State Broncos returned to the winners' list after holding off a gamed San Jose State Spartans squad, 52-42.

    Boise State RB George Holani had 126 rushing yards and four touchdowns on 28 carries.

    Andrew Van Buren added 85 yards and a score on nine carries.

    Spartans QB Josh Love was a pest for the Broncos as he completed 29 of 53 passes for 438 yards and two touchdowns and added a touchdown run in a losing effort.

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

    BB55's Three Studs and Three Duds - College Football Week 10

    Three Studs
    1. Memphis Tigers
    Why? Mike Norvell and the Memphis Tigers boosted their American Athletic Conference West Division title hopes after handing the Southern Methodist Mustangs their first loss of the season in a 54-48 victory.

    With a previous head-to-head wins over both SMU and Navy Midshipmen, Memphis has chance to win the AAC West title if they win their three remaining games.

    The American Athletic Conference also received a boost in the race as the best Group of Five team when the Appalachian State Mountaineers lost to the Georgia Southern Eagles.

    2. Kansas State Wildcats
    Why? Chris Klieman saw K-State go to 6-2 overall after beating their Sunflower Showdown rival Kansas Jayhawks and stay in the hunt for a Big XII Championship Game berth.

    3. Illinois Fighting Illini
    Why? Three weeks ago, Lovie Smith was on the hot seat as Illinois lost four games in a row after starting their 2019 campaign, 2-0.

    Now, the Fighting Illini is one win away from bowl eligibility with three to play. One more win will secure Smith's job for 2020.

    Three Duds
    1. Florida State Seminoles
    Why? The Seminoles are on the verge of a double whammy: a second straight losing season and a second straight season without a bowl game after losing to their bitter rival the Miami Hurricanes, 27-10.

    The heat is rising on Willie Taggert as the Seminoles need to win two out of three games to become bowl eligible.

    2. Nebraska Cornhuskers
    Why? Scott Frost is having a very rough two years in Lincoln as head coach of the Nebraska Cornhuskers.

    Nebraska is 1-8 in road games under Frost and are 3-8 in games decided by eight points or less.

    The preseason Big Ten West Division favorite are 4-5 overall after losing to the Purdue Boilermakers and with three remaining games against the Wisconsin Badgers, Maryland Terrapins and Iowa Hawkeyes, Nebraska needs to win two out of three just to become bowl eligible.

    3. Army Black Knights
    Why? What has happened to Army in 2019? After starting the year 3-1 overall, it looked a fourth straight bowl game was in the cards.

    However, Army lost five consecutive games to go to 3-6 overall and need to win three out of their four remaining games including their rival Navy to keep their bowl streak alive.

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

    P.J. Fleck rowed the Minnesota Golden Gophers to another victory.

    The #17 ranked team in the nation handed James Franklin and the #4 ranked Penn State Nitany Lions their first loss of the season with a 31-26 victory to go to 9-0 overall for the first time since winning the national championship in 1904.

    Minnesota QB Tanner Morgan led the way completing 18 of 20 passes for 339 yards and three touchdowns and no interceptions as the Golden Gophers led 31-19 with 14:11 to go in regulation.

    Penn State RB Journey Brown kept the Nitany Lions in the game with 124 rushing yards and two scores on 14 carries.

    However, Minnesota's defense had three interceptions on Sean Clifford including the sealer from Jordan Howden with 1:17 left in the fourth and Penn State driving to the Minnesota 25.

    Penn State falls to 8-1 overall and need to win all three of their remaining games against the Indiana Hoosiers, Ohio State Buckeyes and the Rutgers Scarlet Knights to win the Big Ten East.

    As for Minnesota, they need to win two out of their three remaining games against the Iowa Hawkeyes, Northwestern Wildcats and Wisconsin Badgers to win the Big Ten West.

    Speaking of Big Ten division races, the Buckeyes, the #1 ranked team in the College Football Playoff Rankings, vaporized the Maryland Terrapins, 73-14 inside the Horseshoe.

    Justin Fields completed 16 of 25 passes for 200 yards and three touchdowns while J.K. Dobbins led the ground game with 90 yards and two majors.

    The Buckeye defense had seven sacks on the Maryland offense.

    Ohio State takes on lowly Rutgers next week before finishing two tough clashes for the Big Ten East title against Penn State and Michigan to finish November.

    The #13 ranked Badgers edged the #18 ranked Hawkeyes, 24-22 inside Madison's Camp Randall Stadium.

    Badger RB Jonathan Taylor didn't find the end zone, but his 250 rushing yards on 31 carries sets up Jack Coan throwing for 173 yards and two touchdowns.

    Iowa QB Nate Stanley kept the Hawkeyes in the game completing 17 of 28 passes for 208 yards and two touchdowns and pulled his team to within 24-22 with 3:12 remaining, but failed on the two-point conversion as Iowa fell short.

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

    Sonny Dykes and the #25 ranked Southern Methodist Mustangs have the American Athletic Conference West Division title in sight after defeating the East Carolina Pirates in a high-scoring clash 59-51.

    SMU QB Shane Buechele completed 33 of 46 passes for 414 yards and five touchdowns.

    Kylen Granson caught seven balls for 138 yards and a receiving hat trick while James Proche caught 14 balls for 167 yards and two scores.

    The ECU defense also had a problem keeping Xavier Jones at bay as the SMU RB had 157 yards on the ground and three majors on 20 carries.

    East Carolina QB Holton Ahlers completed 32 of 42 passes for 498 yards and six touchdowns in a losing effort with Tyler Snead grabbing half of them along with 19 grabs and 240 yards.

    SMU needs to beat both the Navy Midshipmen and the Tulane Green Wave and hope the Memphis Tigers lose one of their final three remaining games to win the AAC West.

    Meanwhile in the AAC East Division race, the #20 ranked Cincinnati Bearcats clobbered the Connecticut Huskies 48-3 to go to 8-1 overall and 5-0 in AAC play.

    Desmond Riddler led the Bearcats completing 13 of 23 passes for 136 yards and two touchdowns while Gerrid Doaks had 123 yards on the ground and a score while Michael Warren II added 60 and two scores.

    The Cincy defense had five sacks as the Bearcats need to win two of their three final games to win the AAC East.

    The Virginia Tech Hokies are going bowling again.

    Justin Fuente and the Hokies are bowl eligible as they tripped up the #19 ranked Wake Forest Demon Deacons, 36-17.

    Hokies QB Hendon Hooker completed 15 of 23 passes for 242 yards and added 69 rushing yards and a rushing touchdown.

    Deshawn McClease added 59 and two scores.

    Wake Forest QB Jamie Newman had 238 passing yards and two touchdowns, but also threw two interceptions and was sacked three times.

    Wake's loss allows the Clemson Tigers to wrap up the ACC Atlantic Division title if they beat the North Carolina State Wolfpack.

    As for the Hokies, they need to win all three of their remaining games including their Commonwealth Cup rival game against the Virginia Cavaliers to win the ACC Coastal.

    Joe Burrow and the #2 ranked Louisiana State Tigers broke their eight-game losing streak against Nick Saban and the #3 ranked Alabama Crimson Tide in a 46-41 victory inside Tuscaloosa's Bryant-Denny Stadium.

    Burrow completed 33 of 39 passes for 393 yards and three touchdowns and Clyde Edwards-Helaire added 103 yards and a hat trick on the ground and caught one of Burrow's three touchdowns as LSU once had a 33-13 halftime lead.

    Alabama QB Tua Tagovailoa had 418 passing yards and four touchdowns and Najee Harris added 146 yards and a score rushing, but Tagovailoa completed 21 of 40 passes and threw an interception. Alabama had two turnovers overall as LSU is in the driver's seat for the SEC West Division crown.

    #10 ranked Florida Gators kept pace with the Georgia Bulldogs for the SEC East Division title after blanking the Vanderbilt Commodores, 56-0.

    Kyle Trask completed 25 of 37 passes for 363 yards and three touchdowns and added 25 rushing yards and a score.

    Emory Jones had a rushing hat trick.

    The Gators defense had three takeaways including a 80-yard scoop-and-six by Jonathan Greenard off a Deuce Williams lost fumble as the Gators finish up SEC play against the Missouri Tigers next week.

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

    Matt Rhule and the #12 ranked Baylor Bears go to 9-0 overall for the first time since 2014 after outlasting the Texas Christian Horned Frogs in Triple Overtime, 29-23.

    It was a field goal slugfest in regulation as Baylor and TCU were deadlocked at 9-9 during regulation.

    Griffin Kell kicked a 47-yard field goal in the first quarter and Jonathan Song added two from 37 and 31 yards out as TCU led 9-0 at halftime.

    But Baylor K John Mayers forced overtime with three field goals of his own in the second half from 36 yards out in the third quarter and 24 yards out to pull the Bears to within six, 9-6 early in the fourth before launching a bomb from 51 yards out to tie the game at 9-all with 36 seconds left to force overtime.

    TCU won the toss and elected defense first.

    But Baylor drew first blood in overtime as Charlie Brewer punched a three-yard touchdown run into the end zone to give Baylor a 16-9 lead.

    TCU replied though when Max Duggan found Te'Vailance Hunt from 24 yards out to tie the game at 16 and force a second overtime period.

    Sewo Olonilua, who had 129 total scrimmage yards including 79 on the ground, gave TCU a 23-16 lead with a two-yard touchdown run.

    But Baylor forced triple overtime when Brewer found Denzel Mims from 20 yards out to tie the game at 23.

    Starting with triple overtime, teams must go for two after scoring a touchdown.

    Brewer found Mims again from four yards out to give Baylor a 29-23 lead, but failed on the two-point conversion.

    TCU had a chance to tie the game with a touchdown, but Max Duggan, who had 140 passing yards and a touchdown, threw an interception that sealed the Horned Frogs fate.

    Duggan completed 14 of 32 passes, but threw three interceptions and was sacked three times.

    Brewer completed 27 of 41 passes for 191 yards and two touchdowns and added 41 rushing yards and a score to become Baylor's hero in Fort Worth.

    Meanwhile in Austin, the Texas Longhorns tripped up #16 ranked Kansas State Wildcats, 27-24.

    K-State QB Skylar Thompson helped the Wildcats jump to a 14-0 lead after the first quarter with two touchdown passes to Malik Knowles, a 70-yarder and Wykeen Gill, a 19-yarder.

    Thompson completed 17 of 27 passes for 253 yards and those two touchdowns, but was sacked three times.

    Sam Ehlinger, who had 263 passing yards in the game, kept Texas in the game with a 21-yard strike to Collin Johnson as the Longhorns trailed 14-7 at halftime.

    Keaontay Ingram helped Texas pull level at 14-all with a 34-yard touchdown run early in the third quarter and Cameron Dicker booted a 36-yard field goal to give Texas the Longhorns a 17-14 lead after three.

    Ingram scampered in his second touchdown run of the game from 12 yards out to give Texas a 24-14 lead with 12:17 remaining.

    Ingram had 139 rushing yards and two scores on 16 carries.

    But on the ensuing kickoff, Joshua Youngblood returned a 98-yard kickoff return for a major as K-State trailed 24-21 with 12:03 remaining.

    Blake Lynch thought he forced overtime with a 45-yard field goal as the game was tied at 24 with 6:45 left.

    However, Texas had the ball last and Dicker nailed a 26-yard field goal at the death to give the Longhorns the win.

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

    Congratulations to Dabo Swinney and the Clemson Tigers.

    The #5 ranked team in the nation won the ACC Atlantic Division title, their eighth division title overall, after destroying the North Carolina State Wolfpack, 55-10.

    Clemson QB Trevor Lawrence completed 20 of 27 passes for 276 yards and three touchdowns and added 59 rushing yards and a major.

    Clemson livewire RB Travis Etienne added 143 total scrimmage yards and a hat trick.

    Clemson will finish their ACC slate against the Wake Forest Demon Deacons, who gave the Tigers a chance to clinch the ACC Atlantic after losing to Virginia Tech Hokies.

    The Tigers will also wait the winner of the ACC Coastal Division in the Atlantic Coast Conference Championship Game in Charlotte, NC's Bank of America Stadium on December 7.

    The #15 ranked Notre Dame Fighting Irish is still alive and kicking for a New Year's Six bowl game after crushing the Duke Bluedevils, 38-7.

    Ian Book threw two interceptions, but made up for them with 181 yards and four touchdowns on 18 of 32 completions. Book was also Notre Dame's leading rusher with 131 yards.

    Brian Kelly and the Fighting Irish need to win all three of their remaining games against the Navy Midshipmen, Boston College Eagles and Stanford Cardinal to boost their New Year's Six bowl chances.

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

    Kirby Smart and the #6 ranked Georgia Bulldogs are closing in on the SEC East Division title after pitching a 27-0 shutout on the Missouri Tigers.

    Georgia QB Jake Fromm completed 13 of 29 passes, but had 173 yards and two touchdowns, both to George Pickens and Rodrigo Blankenship booted four field goals.

    Georgia needs to win one of their final two games against either their bitter Deep South rival Auburn Tigers on the road next week or against the Texas A&M Aggies on November 23 to win the SEC East since they have the head-to-head tiebreaker over the Florida Gators.

    #22 ranked Boise State Broncos stay undefeated in Mountain West Conference play after squeaking by the Wyoming Cowboys, 20-17 in overtime.

    Boise State scored the only points in the first quarter when Chase Cord found Akilian Butler in the end zone from five yards out as the Broncos led 7-0 after the first quarter.

    But Wyoming outscored the Broncos 10-0 in the second quarter to take a 10-7 halftime lead.

    Cowboys QB Tyler Vander Waal punched in a three-yard touchdown run and Cooper Rothe booted a 39-yard field goal in the Smurf Turf.

    Boise State pulled level at 10 a piece when Eric Sachse slotted home a 40-yard field goal.

    But Wyoming took the lead again when Xazavian Valladay, who had 124 rushing yards on 37 carries, scampered his way in from 21 yards out to give the Cowboys a 17-10 lead heading into the fourth.

    But Khalil Shakir tied the game at 17 with a five-yard touchdown run and forced overtime.

    Wyoming won the toss and elected defense first.

    Sachse gave Boise State a 20-17 lead with a 28-yard field goal.

    Wyoming had the ball to either force a second overtime with a field goal or win the game with a touchdown, but Rothe missed a 37-yard field goal and Boise State survives to go to 8-1 overall and 5-0 in Mountain West play.

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

    Lincoln Riley and the #9 ranked Oklahoma Sooners boosted their chances of making the Big XII Championship Game, but they had to survive a massive scare against the Iowa State Cyclones, 42-41.

    Sooners QB Jalen Hurts had 341 total scrimmage yards including 273 passing and five total offensive touchdowns including two touchdown passes to CeeDee Lamb and Kennedy Brooks added 132 rushing yards and a major as OU led by 21 points twice, 35-14 at halftime and 42-21 heading into the fourth quarter.

    But Brock Purdy and the Cyclones refused to quit.

    Purdy completed 19 of 30 passes for 282 yards and five touchdowns and added 55 on the ground and a major.

    Purdy helped Iowa State outscore Oklahoma 20-0 in the fourth quarter including a 13-yard strike to Charlie Kolar to pull the Cyclones to within a point, 42-41 with 24 seconds left.

    But instead of trying to force overtime with an extra point, Matt Campbell decided to go for the win with a two-point conversion.

    However, the plan backfired when Purdy and the Cyclones failed on the two-point conversion.

    Lamb went onto to recover the onside kick as the Sooners survive to go to 8-1 overall and 5-1 in Big XII play.

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

    BB55's Three Studs and Three Duds - College Football: Week 11

    Three Studs
    1. Minnesota Golden Gophers
    Why? P.J. Fleck has led the Gophers to a 9-0 mark for the first time since the Gophers won the national title in 1904.

    Fleck, Tanner Morgan and company can win the Big Ten West Division if they win two of their final three games against Iowa, Northwestern and Wisconsin.

    2. LSU Tigers
    Why? Joe Burrow's magnificent game helped LSU break their eight-game skid against the Alabama Crimson Tide for their first win in the rivalry since 2011.

    Burrow completed 33 of 39 passes for 393 yards and three touchdowns with no interceptions against a tough Alabama defense.

    LSU just need to win two out of three final games against Ole Miss, Arkansas and Texas A&M to secure a spot in the Southeastern Conference title game as SEC West champions.

    3. Lovie Smith
    Why? Lovie Smith will be back for another year in Champaign after the Illinois Fighting Illini are bowl eligible after winning their fourth straight game in a 37-34 triumph over the Michigan State Spartans and hit the six-win mark.

    Three Duds
    1. Alabama Crimson Tide
    Why? After their loss to LSU, Nick Saban and the Tide need to win out and get help in the Big XII and Pacific 12 conference in order to get in the College Football Playoff bracket as a non-Conference champion with one loss.

    2. Arkansas Razorbacks
    Why? See ya Chad Morris. A seven-game losing streak after starting the Razorbacks' 2019 campaign at 2-1 overall including two losses to Group of Five teams in the San Jose State Spartans and the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers has seen Morris grabbing the pink slip.

    3. Stanford Cardinal
    Why? David Shaw and the Stanford Cardinal are 4-5 overall after a tough and frustrating road loss to the Colorado Buffaloes.

    The banged up Cardinal got their #1 QB back in K.J. Costello, but Stanford needs to win two out of their final games against the Washington State Cougars, their Big Game rival California Golden Bears and their Legends Trophy foe Notre Dame Fighting Irish to avoid missing a bowl game for the first time since 2008.
