If you like scoring, Oklahoma vs TCU is the game for you. Soon, the star block Kyler Murray was on the CeeDee Lamb for 37-yard touchdown to open points, but the Horned Frogs responded right back when KaVontae Turpin walked 99m for touchdown at the subsequent kickoff. The Sooners jumped out to a 28-7 lead early in the second quarter, to see only the Horned Frogs storm after Michael Collins switched to the quarterback instead of Shawn Robinson, and Collins immediately cut it to a single scoring game. Murray has 131 meters pass and two touchdowns in the break, and Sooner leads 28-24 in Fort Worth.
Cincinnati is one of eight unbeaten teams left in college football, but is in a fist fighting against the temple. Michael Warren II has 76 yards and a score for Bearcats, but Owls quarterback Anthony Russo threw a 16-yard point to Randle Jones early in the first half. The two teams are tied to 10 at the break.
Badgers takes on Illinois at Camp Randall Stadium and we have our first major snow game this year. Obviously there is a problem for Illini, who has fumbled twice and threw three interceptions between two different quarterbacks. It has not been a problem for Badger’s quarterback Alex Hornibrook, 9 of 13 passing for 112 meters and two touchdowns. Running back Jonathan Taylor has 71 rushing yards and Aron Cruickshank ran another in from 23 yards out to lead Badgers to a 28-7 lead.
This will probably not shock you if you have watched Auburn play football this year … but the crime is fierce. After reaching 87 meters for a touchdown on the first unit, the tigers have gone three and twice and missed a field goal. A 28-yard field goal by Anders Carlson in the second quarter extended the lead to 10-6 at half-time. The good news for the tigers is that they have kept Rebel’s crimes in control, but may have to ride that defense in the second half if they want to pull out the roads.
Wolverines will be without all-defensive defensive linear Rashan Gary third third straight game. The junior standout and Preseason All-American were thought to fit up for the team’s match last week vs Wisconsin, according to coach Jim Harbaugh, but have not seen the field since Michigan’s victory over Northwestern on September 29 due to injury. Wolverines takes on Michigan State without him on Saturday when speculation continues with regard to his long-term future with the school in the wake of Nick Bosa’s NFL and injury impact from Ohio State.
At the same time, the two teams left the first quarter of a pointless game due to the flash.
