Randy’s Week 5 College Football Wrap-Up
Two really big games in week 5 of college football this weekend: Georgia hosting LSU and Wisconsin at Ohio State. Both home teams won. #4 Ohio State remained undefeated with a 31-24 win over #23 Wisconsin and with the win the Buckeyes winning streak is at 17. LSU at #6 and Georgia at #9 was a back and forth affair with LSU scoring the go-ahead touchdown with only minutes to play but Georgia marched right down the field and scored the winning TD with less than two minutes remaining.
#1 Alabama beat #25 Ole Miss 25-0 with the defense playing well but again this week the offense had troubles.
#2 Oregon keeps scoring point by the ton, they beat California 55-16 outscoring Cal 41-3 in the first half.
Clemson at #5 had a walk in the park over Wake Forest 56-7.
#5 Stanford had two interceptions for touchdowns in a blow-out of Washington State 55-17. The Cardinal takes on Wisconsin next week.
Florida State holding the #8 spot beat Boston College 48-34 but their young defense did look vulnerable at times.
#10 Texas A&M can score points behind Johnny Manziel but their defense gives up alot of points. They beat Arkansas 45-33 as the Aggies scored more than 40 points for the eighth straight game.
The upset of the week was WestVirginia (unranked) beating #11 Oklahoma State 30-21. OK State turned the ball over three times and committed 10 penalties for 96 yards.
The Maine Black Bears beat Richmond 28-21 the Black Bears first conference opening win since 2011. It was a thrill a minute to the end as Maine’s Lamar Fitzgerald intercepted Richmond’s QB in the end zone with 21 seconds to play. UMaine scored the go ahead touchdown with 5:16 to play and hung on for the win. Maine now 4-1 on the season hosts Delaware next Saturday.
