SEC Games

Arkansas 52 Alcorn State 10

cornelius-td Austin Allen passed for 206 yards and 3 touchdowns in the Razorbacks big win over Alcorn State. Jared Cornelius added 2 receiving touchdowns on 106 yards. The Razorbacks stay in Fayetteville for a massive showdown against #1 Alabama.

Florida 13 Vanderbilt 6 As predicted, this game was closer than most believed it would. Eddy Pineiro is the player of the game for Florida, as he made two field goals and an extra point. For Vanderbilt, Ralph Webb added 110 yards on the ground. Next up, the Gators head home against LSU, while Vanderbilt will head to Lexington to face the Cats.

Auburn 58 UL-Monroe 7 Sean White passed for 239 yards and 2 touchdowns and Kerryon Johnson rushed for 146 yards and 2 touchdowns in Auburn's big win. The Tigers held ULM to only 251 total yards, while accounting for 688 of their own. Auburn will head to Starkville next week for a noon kickoff against Mississippi State.

Tennessee 34 Georgia 31 Madness. That is the only way to describe the last 10 seconds of the game. Jacob Eason completed a 47 yard touchdown pass to Riley Ridley to put the Bulldogs up by 3 with 10 seconds left in the game. Joshua Dobbs proceeded to throw a Hail Mary of his own that was caught by Jauan Jennings as time expired. Tennessee, again, fought back from a large deficit as they were trailing 17-0 with 2 minutes left in the first half. Dobbs passed for 230 yards and 3 touchdowns for Tennessee. Next up, the Vols have a huge showdown in College Station against Texas A&M. Georgia will look to get back on the winning track with a visit to South Carolina.

Texas A&M 24 South Carolina 13 South Carolina ran their first play from scrimmage 75 yards for a touchdown to jump out to an early 7-0 lead. From there, the Aggies took over and Trevor Knight led them to a 24-13 win over the Gamecocks. Knight threw for 206 yards and ran for 84, but did not find the end zone. Next up, the Aggies welcome in Tennessee for College GameDay, while South Carolina welcomes in Georgia.

Ole Miss 48 Memphis 28 Revenge is always sweet and Ole Miss got just that on Saturday. Chad Kelly added to his already impressive numbers, by passing for 361 yards and a touchdown. The Rebels defense was able to force 4 Memphis turnovers and hold them to only 3.8 yards/rush in a big win. Ole Miss has a bye week next week, before heading to Arkansas on October 14th.

LSU 42 Missouri 7 The Ed Orgeron era could not have started any better for LSU. The Tigers set an SEC record with 634 total yards with 418 of those coming on the ground. This was all without Leonard Fournette. The Missouri offense that had impressed so many was held stagnant through the game. LSU will head to Florida next week, while Missouri will have a bye week before heading to Florida.  

Other Games of Note

Michigan 14 Wisconsin 7 In a battle of two of the better defenses in college football, Michigan won out. The Wolverines held Wisconsin to only 159 total yards and forced 3 turnovers. The game sealing turnover is the one shown above, which may be the best interception I have ever seen. The Wolverines next head to Rutgers while the Badgers welcome in Ohio State following a bye week.

Clemson 42 Louisville 36 In one of the best games of the year, Clemson defeated Louisville 44-38. Deshaun Watson passed for 308 yards and 5 touchdowns and Lamar Jackson passed for 295 and rushed for 162. The teams combined for 78 points and 1,075 total yards. The play that everyone is talking about is the defensive stop by Clemson with 40 seconds left. James Quick caught the pass from Jackson about 9 yards short of the first down marker. Quick ended up spinning out of bounds a yard short of the marker to clinch the win for Clemson. Up next for UofL is a home game against Duke, while Clemson heads to face Patrick Towles and Boston College.
