Alabama Crimson Tide

A somewhat uneventful week with the top 4 teams all winning: Alabama against an FCS team, Oregon against Colorado, Mississippi State over Vanderbilt and Florida State, the least impressive of them all, barely getting away with a victory facing Boston College.

Western Carolina 14  #1 Alabama 48: An easy way to get through a week, facing an FCS opponent, never really putting at risk their chances of being number one.

Colorado 10  #2 Oregon 44: Another huge day for Marcus Mariota with four touchdowns, as the Ducks get themselves ready for the Civil War.

Boston College 17  #3 Florida State 20: The Seminoles continue to look bad, but somehow squeak through to remain undefeated this season, scoring a game winning field goal with 3 seconds left on the clock.

Vanderbilt 0  #4 Mississippi State 51: The Bulldogs bounce back nicely from their first loss of the season, shutting out the Commodores, which should keep them in the top 4.

Indiana 27  #6 Ohio State 42: T.J. Barrett threw four touchdown passes as the Buckeyes clinched their spot in the Big Ten title game.

Oklahoma State 28  #7 Baylor 49: Another loss for the Cowboys (fifth in a row) as Baylor possibly do enough to finally take over TCU in the polls.

#8 Ole Miss 0  Arkansas 30: Too bad the season doesn’t begin now for the Razorbacks, winning two games in a row without conceding a point, while the Rebels drop a third game this season, costing them any hope of doing anything big past the Egg Bowl.

#19 USC 20  #9 UCLA 38: Brett Hundley was involved with four touchdowns (passed for three) as UCLA won against the Trojans for a third straight time, taking them out of the Pac-12 South title picture.

Charleston Southern 9  #10 Georgia 55: SEC team vs an FCS team? It couldn’t end any other way but in a blowout.

Rutgers 3  #11 Michigan State 45: An impressive scoring performance from the Spartans, but not enough to help them keep up with Ohio State in the East.

Washington State 31  #13 Arizona State 52: A great day for Taylor Kelly and D.J. Foster keeps the Sun Devils in the championship game picture, but they will need to win against Arizona and hope for a UCLA slip probably. Luke Falk threw for 601 yards.

Samford 7  #14 Auburn 31: A win over an FCS team that won’t mean anything. Auburn need to beat Alabama so they’ll have something to smile about this season.

#15 Arizona 42  #17 Utah 10: A huge win for the Wildcats against a Utes team that fell apart in the fourth quarter, taking them out of the championship game picture, while the Wildcats are now in excellent position heading into their desert rivalry next week.

#16 Wisconsin 26  Iowa 24: Melvin Gordon ran for 200 yards and caught for 64 yards, surpassing 2000 rushing yards this season as Wisconsin took a huge step towards winning the West division.

#20 Missouri 29  Tennessee 21: The Tigers avoided their almost last hurdle towards winning the SEC East.

Kansas 7  #21 Oklahoma 44: Samaje Perine waited a week before breaking Melvin Gordon’s rushing record, going for 427 yards and scoring five touchdowns.

Georgia State 0  #22 Clemson 28: Scoring all their points in the first half was enough for the Tigers to get themselves ready for the South Carolina game next week.

#25 Minnesota 28  #23 Nebraska 24: A fourth quarter touchdown and outscoring the Huskers by 18 points in the second half put Minnesota one win away from winning the division.

#24 Louisville 31  Notre Dame 28: The Irish continue their free fall, losing a fourth game out of five, due to a missed field goal.
