Holland opts out
Elsewhere, Oregon corner Jevon Holland will not be playing for the Ducks when they resume play in November. He’s opting out of the season.
Half: No. 15 Oklahoma State 20, West Virginia 7
No Spencer Sanders at QB for the Cowboys as he deals with an injury suffered in last week’s win against Tulsa. Freshman Shane Illingworth is under center for OSU. Also, just 12 rushes for 48 yards for Chuba Hubbard. Field goal right before the half extends the lead to 13, but as you’ll see in this highlight defense is to credit for the Cowboys’ lead.
Georgia QB change:
Stetson Bennett in for the Bulldogs with 10 minutes left in the second quarter and Georgia trailing Arkansas 7-2. D’Wan Mathis has been ineffective.
Half: No. 14 Cincinnati 10, No. 22 Army 7
How would the Black Knights’ defense handle a quality foe after Army allowed just seven points in a pair of blowout victories to begin the season? It’s held up pretty well so far on the road at Cincinnati.
Georgia on the board
A disastrously botched double-reverse by Arkansas leads to a safety that gets Georgia on the board. Would not have guessed the Bulldogs’ first points would come on a safety in the second quarter. But here we are.
End 1Q: Arkansas 7, No. 4 Georgia 0
D’Wan Mathis does not look comfortable at quarterback for Georgia. But give Arkansas credit, because the Razorbacks don’t look like the woefully overmatched foe many expected them to be. Sam Pittman’s first team is here to play against his old school.
Suprising early score
Arkansas leads Georgia 7-0 midway through the first quarter. D’Wan Mathis looks less than stellar early at QB for Georgia. Scrambled on a 3rd-and-11 just now and stepped out of bounds a yard shy when he could’ve easily stayed in and picked up another couple of yards. Also had a throw nearly picked.
End 1Q: No. 8 Texas 17, Texas Tech 7
The Longhorns need to win this convincingly one for the sake of the Big 12. After Oklahoma’s loss to K-State, the league can’t afford for another top contender to look like trash. Good start for Sam Ehlinger: 9-of-10, 101 yards, 1 TD, 0 INTs
Huge relief. Cardinals lost to Pittsburgh, but that was of secondary concern in the final two minutes as Cunningham was carted off.
Final: Kansas State 38, No. 3 Oklahoma 35
The Wildcats go on the road shorthanded due to COVID-19 protocols and come back from down 35-14 to shock the No. 3 team in the country. Huge implications for the College Football Playoff. Doesn’t eliminate the Sooners but pretty much ensures they’ll have to win out. Second year in a row that Kansas State has beaten Oklahoma. Helloooooo, college football!
Final: No. 5 Florida 51, Ole Miss 35
Kyle Trask throws a career-high six touchdowns. Kyle Pitts caught FOUR of them. Dominant performance for the Florida offense. Plenty of reason to be encouraged for Ole Miss, too. Matt Corral looked pretty good at QB both as a passer and running the ball as well with Elijah Moore looking like an elite playmaker.
Final: Pittsburgh 23, Louisville 20
Big win for No. 21 Pitt, but it takes a backseat to a scary scene. Louisville QB Malik Cunningham had to be carted off in the final two minutes.
Final: No. 19 Louisiana 20, Georgia Southern 18
Wow! Nate Synder hits a 53-yarder at the final horn to lift Louisiana to a 20-18 victory. He’d been having a rough go of it, but man that was clutch. College kickers making a comeback this week!
Final: No. 8 Auburn 29, No. 23 Kentucky 13
The Tigers found their stride late as Bo Nix and Seth Williams connected for a couple of crucial TDs. Two crucial turnovers and a botched fake punt sank Kentucky.
