Tulsa Running Back Corey Taylor II
Corey Taylor II made a bold prediction before Friday’s game against Michigan State.
Via @Chasemarino13: Some bold words from Tulsa running back Corey Taylor II, who said gaining 200 yards rushing a 'reasonable' goal vs. Michigan State's No. 1-ranked run defense https://t.co/bNLmRPqY85— Chris Solari (@chrissolari) August 23, 2019
And well let’s just say things didn’t turn out well.
Stat Alert Michigan State held Tulsa to -73 yards rushing, a school-record low for a Spartan opponent (previous: -63 yards by Pittsburgh in 1950).— Michigan State Football (@MSU_Football) August 31, 2019
Tulsa's -73 rushing yards tonight set a program record, but came up shy of the FBS record. Northern Illinois moonwalked -109 yards on 33 carries against Toledo in 1967 (and lost 35-0).— RedditCFB (@RedditCFB) August 31, 2019
Texas Cornerback Kobe Boyce
This is just straight up embarrassing. You can’t be doing that stuff against LSU next week.

How do you miss this targeting call in the Stanford/Northwestern game that knocks K.J. Costello out of the game??!! This probably won’t be the last time Big Ten refs get a cob nomination this season.
Such a dangerous hit to the head of Stanford QB K.J. Costello. Somehow Northwestern's Earnest Brown was not ejected. pic.twitter.com/FWfD5YIfok— Yahoo Sports College Football (@YahooSportsCFB) August 31, 2019
Purdue blew a 17-point lead in the 3rd quarter to Nevada. The game ends with this amazing kick from freshman walk-on Brandon Talton. He was rewarded a scholarship after the game.
UNREAL FINISH!— SportsCenter (@SportsCenter) August 31, 2019

Missouri must have been thrilled when former Clemson QB Kelly Bryant decided to transfer to their school. However it didn’t stop them from losing their season opener on the road in Laramie.

The Vols were a mess. Straight up dominated by Georgia State in the 2nd half being outscored 24-6 until a late garbage time TD by Tennessee. Where does Rocky Top go from here?

They're on the verge of defeating the Vols in Tennessee in a massive upset after this Dan Ellington touchdown. pic.twitter.com/5Kp0xBRxOf
I have watched Tennessee football since I was 3 years old and this is rock bottom. Beyond words. Beyond belief.— Paul Finebaum (@finebaum) August 31, 2019

Corn Nation only does Cobs for FBS games but I just have to share this bonus from Saint Francis redshirt freshman punter Ryan Oliver in the game against Lehigh. Look out!
