Weekly College Football Rewind – Week 9

By George Harvey -

For the most part, all was right in the world of college football.

However, there weren’t too many games that really stood out to me this week. But, let’s go ahead and categorize the few that did stand out to me.

Best of the Best
#24 LSU over #3 Ole Miss 10-7
#19 Utah over #20 USC 24-21

Both of these games were excellent games in my book and made for great games to watch. I think secretly we all knew Ole Miss would fall soon, but how many of us really expected them to fall to LSU? However, don’t count this one-loss team out of anything just yet.

Utah and Southern California was a pretty evenly matched contest and Utah just barely got the win.

Toss Ups
#25 UCLA over Colorado 40-37 (2OT)
#5 Auburn over South Carolina 42-35

These games were both real toss ups. UCLA just barely squeaked out a victory against Colorado in double overtime, while Auburn, who has been performing well almost lost to a South Carolina team who has not been so hot lately.

Who Saw That Coming?

Nobody really qualified for this category this week. I mean, I guess you could put #24 LSU’s 10-7 victory over #3 Ole Miss in this category, but I chose not to.

Who saw that coming? How about PSU taking OSU into overtime? Too bad the officials were such a big part of the game…..
