The biggest loser this weekend was the Big 12.
Both of their remaining undefeated teams lost; Texas got their act together long enough to do everyone a huge favor by knocking off Baylor, and Oklahoma State took down West Virginia in easier fashion than anticipated. I thought the Cowboys would have a much harder time with the Mountaineer defense. Apparently not.
The Big 12 took another hit when it was revealed that Baylor coach Art Briles knew more about the sexual assaults in Waco than it was thought. This should slam the door on Briles coaching anywhere soon and Briles apologists can now shut up for good.
I'm accepting apologies from the Art Briles supporters who bullied and threatened me over my comment that he shouldn't coach again. https://t.co/0aCID1H1LO— Brenda Tracy (@brendatracy24) October 29, 2016
Boise State lost to Wyoming, a team that no longer plays the part of pushover and now looks like one of Nebraska's better wins on the season. It was Wyoming's first win ever against Boise State, and knocked them from the ranks of non-Power Five teams that might (however slim) have a chance at a playoff berth.
It looked like Florida State was going to ruin Clemson's undefeated season but the Tigers pulled it out late, and then made an excellent defensive stand to keep the 'Noles anywhere close to scoring when they got the ball back with two minutes left.
Washington took care of business against Utah. I've seen that being stated as the Huskies "first real test of the season", but nobody foresaw the train wreck that Stanford would become.
Florida's win over Georgia, combined with South Carolina's surprise win over Tennessee left the Gators in first place in the SEC East. The Alabama robots lead the West, obviously, and if the Gators win out I don't see them knocking off the Crimson Tide in any way; Florida just doesn't have the offense to do it.
Right now it’s Alabama, Michigan, Clemson, and Washington as the top four teams in the country. All four are undefeated. It’s hard to imagine any of them being beaten by the remaining teams on the schedule, but we all know that’s not how it works.
November is coming, and November is full of crazy.
If you're like me, you woke up Sunday morning disappointed but not disillusioned. Yes, there's an element of sadness to see Nebraska lose to Wisconsin, 23-17, in overtime after the Huskers outscored
In the nation's premier volleyball conference, who will win the Big Ten?
Police and the university said the fan was just exercising his right to free speech.
Zander Diamont, Tyler Natee and Devine Redding all ran for 100 yards as the Hoosiers racked up 650 yards of offense.
Missed tackling marred an otherwise strong performance
A brutal addition to an already horrible season
Tigers pull out the win with a late defensive stand against the Seminoles.
The Hoos made it interesting, but come up just short. Turnovers and scoreless possessions haunt offense.
Louisville’s star had done everything but engineer a game-winning drive with tons on the line. Check that off the list.
Secondary depth tested yet again.
Jimbo Fisher will be sending some money to North Carolina.
Florida State’s head coach was livid. See what you think.
OSU ran out to a 21-0 first half lead before the Cougars woke up and put together a third quarter for the ages to pull ahead and — after briefly falling behind again in the fourth quarter thanks to #SpecialForces — eventually close out a 35-31 victory.
A late field goal gives the Longhorns their biggest win in years over the Baylor Bears.
One of the most important games in the Pac-12 this season ended with the conference’s College Football Playoff hopes intact. No. 4 Washington beat No. 17 Utah, 31–24, on Saturday to move to 8–0 and cement its status as a top contender for the national semifinals days away from the release of the first rankings of 2016 from the playoff selection committee.
If you wanted more information about the run-up to Baylor’s firing of Art Briles, you’re getting it.
