TCU (3-6, 1-5 Big 12)
The Horned Frogs are now actually a game away from losing bowl eligibility after a 30-27 overtime loss to West Virginia. Casey Pachall threw for nearly 400 yards, but two interceptions and another two turnovers proved too costly to overcome. Frogs o'War, as you might imagine, are quite nonplussed with the situation.
UAB (2-6, 1-3 CUSA)
UAB held the ball for nearly 40 minutes and finished with 299 rushing yards, but big plays like a 93-yard touchdown pass and a 40-yard pick six helped Middle Tennessee pull off the 24-21 victory over the Blazers.
Kent State (2-8, 1-5 MAC)
Five for fighting for the Golden Flashes. Five turnovers begat a fifth loss in a row, as Akron held off Kent State 16-7.
Auburn (8-1, 4-1)
It took just nine passes for Auburn to earn its eighth win of the season over Arkansas, 35-17. Tre Mason picked up SEC Offensive Player of the Week honors after rushing for 168 yards and four touchdowns. College and Magnolia found the win a bit ugly at times. Not much on this though.
Georgia (5-3, 4-2)
It was one of the more bizarre Cocktail Parties in some time, but the Bulldogs pulled it out, 23-20. That's three in a row for Georgia over Florida. Dawgsports is basking in the beautifully ugly afterglow.
Mississippi State (4-4, 1-3)
The Bulldogs outgained South Carolina by nearly 80 yards, which didn't exactly please Steve Spurrier too much. But five turnovers, including three Dak Prescott interceptions, helped the Gamecocks defeat State 35-17. At least one For Whom the Cowbell Tolls writer is pinning the mistakes on having a young team, while still drawing a "bowl or go" line in the sand for Dan Mullen. In other, very sad news, Prescott's mother Peggy succumbed to a battle with cancer yesterday. I think I speak for SEC fans everywhere when I say that our thoughts and prayers are with him and his family right now.
Florida (4-4, 3-3)
Alligator Army is loving the way the Gators fought back to make what looked like a Georgia walk-through into a game. What they're not loving, was a nasty exchange between Will Muschamp and a bird-flipping fan after the game.
Ole Miss (5-3, 2-3)
Open date for the Rebels.
Furman (4-5, 3-2 FCS Southern Conference)
The Purple Paladins picked up their fourth win of the season over Georgia Southern, 16-14.
Alabama (8-0, 5-0)
Open date. Roll Bama Roll is, of course, gearing up for game week.
Texas A&M (7-2, 3-2)
The Aggies spotted UTEP a 5-point lead before rattling off 55 straight to win 57-7. Johnny Football turned in a combined six touchdowns (4 passing, 2 rushing), with A&M putting up 564 yards of total offense. Running back Tra Carson suffered a serious head/neck injury in what looked like a really scary moment, but the good news is he appears to be relatively fine.
Arkansas (3-6, 0-5)
And that's six in a row for the Razorbacks. Arkansas Fight is lamenting lost opportunities in the 35-17 loss to Auburn.
