Boy, was Week 11 fun or what? It was certainly an action packed week of college football as games started Tuesday this week and concluded on Saturday.
Without any more delay (since I am a little late in writing this story), let’s get to categorizing some college football games.
Best of the Best
#5 Alabama over #16 LSU 20-13 (OT)
#9 Arizona State over #10 Notre Dame 55-31
#14 Ohio State over #8 Michigan State 40-37
This trio of games was a joy to watch. It was literally down to the wire between the Tide and Tigers in Death Valley, while the Sun Devils gave the Irish a run for their money. Meanwhile, Urban Meyer’s Buckeyes squeaked out an upset over the Spartans.
Penn State over Indiana 13-7
#6 TCU over #7 Kansas State 41-20
A pair of games that I consider “toss up” contests were the games featuring Penn State vs. Indiana and TCU vs. Kansas State. These games, for the most part, could have gone either way. Kansas State has been an up-and-down team this season, in my opinion.
Who Saw That Coming?
Texas A&M over #3 Auburn 41-38
Texas over #23 West Virginia 33-16
It was a great day in Texas on Saturday! The Aggies and Longhorns got major upsets, while the Horned Frogs, as previously noted, also got a nice win over Kansas State. Props to the Aggies, who started strong and have recently struggled, for stunning #3 Auburn. Meanwhile, the Longhorns, under Charlie Strong, dismantled the Mountaineers, who started having a pretty impressive season up until the last two weeks.
