Well, folks, the 2014 college football regular season is almost behind us.
After such an amazing week of contests, let’s categorize the regular-season contests one last time.
Best of the Best
#1 Alabama over #15 Auburn 55-44
#16 Georgia Tech over #9 Georgia 30-24 (OT)
These two games, to me, were definitely this week’s Best of the Best contests. These two rivalry games are always a blast to watch and the 2014 match ups did not disappoint.
The Tigers tried their hardest to keep the game much closer, while the Yellow Jackets shocked the Bulldogs in overtime.
Who Saw That Coming?
Western Kentucky over #24 Marshall 67-66 (OT)
#19 Ole Miss over #4 Mississippi State 31-17
Stanford over #8 UCLA 31-10
Let’s be honest. Who saw these three games turning out this way? Okay. Maybe some saw Ole Miss over Mississippi State, but by two touchdowns?
Western Kentucky completely stunned the Herd in overtime, Ole Miss went back to its ways of dominance we saw early in the year to beat their rivals, while Stanford upset UCLA big time.
#7 Baylor over Texas Tech 48-46 (too close)
#3 Florida State over Florida 24-19
These last two games to categorize are my toss up contests.
Baylor bested Texas Tech by two points, which is why the game made this week’s toss up category. To me, Baylor allowed Texas Tech to get way too close to a victory this weekend, while Florida State did the same thing with Florida.
The Seminoles are ranked third in the nation (as I write this) and should not have let the Gators get as close as they did to victory. However, much of the blame goes to Jameis Winston who had four passes picked off.
