Check these out …
Arizona State wins a thriller
Don’t look now, everyone, but Herm Edwards and the Arizona State Sun Devils are now 5-1 on the season and a legitimate threat in the Pac-12 Conference. The latest victory, however, was one of the more memorable of the season. Down 34-31 with with 41 seconds on the clock, quarterback Jayden Daniels ran the game-winning touchdown in from 17 yards out to seal the deal for the Sun Devils. This capped off an amazing performance for Daniels on Saturday in the win that also saw him toss for 363 yards and three touchdowns.
Wisconsin’s defense shines again
The No. 8 Badgers have seemingly been making statement after statement this year as they once again stake their claim as kings of the Big Ten West, and that continued on Saturday with a 38-0 thrashing of Michigan State at Camp Randall Stadium. Wisconsin moved to 6-0 on the season as the Badgers defense pitched its fourth shutout of the season throughout those six games — a program record. As far as the offensive side of the ball, star running back Jonathan Taylor churned out 80 yards on 26 carries with two touchdowns.
Clemson throttles Florida State
So, about those conversations regarding the defending national champion Tigers having taken a step back this year. If they have, it wasn’t evident on Saturday as Clemson bounced back from the scare against North Carolina two weeks ago by dismantling ACC Atlantic Division rival Florida State at home 45-14. Trevor Lawrence was 17-of-25 passing with 170 yards and three touchdowns while running back Travis Etienne rushed for 127 yards on 17 carries. That’s now 21 consecutive victories as Clemson extends the longest win streak in the nation.
South Carolina upsets Georgia in 2OT
This isn’t exactly the upset that many saw coming on Saturday, but South Carolina was able to defeat No. 3 Georgia on the road. Georgia quarterback Jake Fromm threw for 295 yards, but also tossed three touchdowns, including a pick six just before halftime to give the Gamecock a 17-10 advantage at the break. South Carolina kicker Parker White, who missed a field goal in the first overtime period, connected on a 24-yard field goal to give South Carolina a 20-17 lead. Georgia’s dependable kicker Rodrigo Blankenship missed a 42-yard field goal that would’ve extended the game.
Michigan outlasts Illinois
Michigan didn’t find much resistance in Champaign, Illinois, but the Fighting Illini didn’t throw in the towel. The Illini scored 25 unanswered points to cut the deficit to 28-25 in the fourth quarter before Michigan was able to pull away. The Wolverines racked up 489 yards of total offense, and quarterback Shea Patterson tossed three touchdown passes on the afternoon.
Temple edges No. 23 Memphis
Which one of these teams was ranked? The Owls have looked like the much better team in the first half and took a 23-14 lead into the locker room at halftime. Temple was able to outlast Memphis in the second half behind a pair of touchdown passes from Owls quarterback Anthony Russo. Wideout Branden Mack also hauled in nine passes for 125 yards and a touchdown. The Temple defense was able to force Memphis into two turnovers on downs late in the final quarter to squeak out the win.
