Week 8 of College Football. Crazy upsets, overbearing refs and a botched fake punt. Let’s check out football this week’s cob nominations.

Sooner Schooner crash could have been worse.

Arkansas fake punt

Just when you think Arkansas’s season couldn’t get any worse...this happens. MY. GOODNESS.


The Badgers stroll into Champaign as 30 point favorites against the Illini...and then the unthinkable happens.

Rubbing salt onto the wound.


Vanderbilt had to have been angry after last week’s humiliating loss to UNLV. They took out their anger and put the anchor down on Missouri.

Derek Mason was fired up about it.

Portland State Safety Romeo Gunt

Did he really think he was going to get away with it?

Clemson cornerback Andrew Booth Jr

Exhibit A on how to get yourself ejected from a football game. It’s also pretty stupid to be punching someone wearing a helmet.

Sun Belt referees

Looks like the Sun Belt isn’t the Fun Belt anymore because of these party poopers in charge of the Coastal Carolina-Georgia Southern game.

There were so many great cob nominations in Week 8 of College Football but unfortunately you can only pick one.
