Week 7 of the college football season brought a lot of exciting results and shocked fans all over the country. This week 6 ranked teams went down including 2 top 10 teams. Alabama and Oklahoma State had thrilling losses, both putting up 40+ points despite losing and Michigan finally proved to the college football fandom that they are a top 4 worthy team. Georgia also set an example this week when they completely crushed Vanderbilt 55-0 and proved themselself as the number 1 ranked team in the country.
Alabama was coming into their matchup against Tennessee after barely defeating Texas A&M. The Crimson Tide were also ranked number 3 in the country before this game, while Tennessee was 6. The game started out with the Volunteers dominating, having a 21-7 lead in the first quarter. However, Alabama wouldnt go away quietly as they kept the game close all the way up until the fourth quarter. With 25 seconds left in the game, Alabama lined up to kick the potential game winning field goal. But this kick ended up going far right and left Tennessee time to kick their own game winning field goal, which they did. The final score was 52-49, and it was really a battle of the quarterbacks as Alabama QB finished with 455 yards and 2 Tds, while Tennessee QB Hendon Hooker had 385 yards and 5 TDs.
TCU is proving that the big 12 isn’s a joke as they beat fellow Big 12 team Oklahoma State in overtime 43-40. Oklahoma State was a top ten team coming into to this game, but they barely fell out after the loss, ending up as the 11th ranked team in the country. TCU, on the other hand jumped into the top ten at number 8. TCU is looking for a Big 12 title this year since Oklahoma and Texas, two powerhouse teams in the Big 12 over the past couple of years, have been underperforming. Wide receiver Quienten Johnson seems like a legit X factor for the Hornfrogs and he might be the missing piece for TCU’s Big 12 title.
The underrated Michigan Offense is starting to prove itself to the college football community by beating a top-10 team. Michigan played a straightforward game by controlling the run game against the Penn State defense. This Saturday’s match-up had one of the best running back matchups with Penn State Running back Nick Singleton and Michigan’s running back Blake Corum. Michigan clearly has the better defense by holding the Penn State Offence to 17 points while the Wolverines tallied 41.
The SEC powerhouse team, Georgia, once again runs up the score against Vanderbilt finishing the game 55-0. After winning the National Championship last year against Alabama, they hope to make it back to the National Championship to defend their title. Right now, they look outstanding after dominating all of their opponents and still remaining undefeated. In order for Georgia to protect their title, they have to outplay Ohio State, who is ranked #2 in the country. Ohio State is undefeated and has been dominating their opponents aswell. Ohio State had a bye week this week, but they are still looking like clear cut contenders for the national title.
