Wisconsin (6-2, 3-1 in the Big 10)
The Badgers threw for just 87 yards, but managed to shut out Rutgers 37-0. Melvin Gordon's seventh 100-yard game featured 128 and two touchdowns. Everything is still in front of the Wisconsin to win the Big 10 West division, but they'll have to play their best football in the season's final month.
Sam Houston State (5-4, 4-1 in the FCS Southland Conference)
Three-hundred-fifty-seven rushing yards, with 154 from Keshawn Hill and 140 by Jared Johnson, led the Bearkats past S.F. Austin, 42-28.
ULM (3-5, 2-2 in the Sun Belt)
The Warhawks had the ball with 89 yards to go, just under two minutes to work with and needing a touchdown to pull the upset in Kyle Field, but couldn't get anything going against Texas A&M, falling 21-16.
Mississippi State (8-0, 5-0)
Dak Prescott became the first 300-yard passer of the Dan Mullen Era and overcame a pair of turnovers to throw a late touchdown pass to put State on top of a very feisty Arkansas, 17-10. The Bulldog defense intercepted Brandon Allen in the final seconds to hold off a furious Razorback rally.
New Mexico State (2-7, 1-4 in the Sun Belt)
The Aggies rallied late, but it wasn't enough to overcome Texas State, 37-29.
Auburn (7-1, 4-1 in SEC play)
The Other Tigers ran for 253 yards in what proved to be a sloppy, albeit incredibly dramatic 35-31 win over Ole Miss in Oxford. At least, that's the Auburn perspective.
Florida (4-3, 3-3)
The Gators completed just three passes, and it didn't matter one bit, rushing for 418 yards and trouncing 11th-ranked Georgia in the World's Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party, 38-20. It's a huge win that has to make you feel good for Will Muschamp, even if it's ultimately fruitless for his prospects.
Kentucky (5-4, 2-4)
Bowl eligibility continues to elude Kentucky, who fell to Missouri in Columbia, 20-10 on Saturday. A Sea of Blue is learning to accept that there's a lot about this team they just need to accept, but the chances for that sixth win are getting smaller with Georgia coming up this week plus Louisville and Tennessee to go.
Ole Miss (7-2, 4-2)
You know it's got to be bad for us to feel bad for the Rebels: the ending of the Ole Miss-Auburn game was just heart-breaking. This tweet pretty much says it:
Poor Ole Miss. Lost best player, go-ahead TD, fumble, game, division, conference, playoff spot, title shot in less than 1 yard. Just brutal.— Scott Michaux (@ScottMichaux) November 2, 2014
Red Cup Rebellion and Steven Godfrey try to make sense of the aftermath.
Alabama (7-1, 4-1)
Roll Bama Roll did a little statistical review of their offense in the bye week.
Arkansas (4-5, 0-5)
Another week, another close SEC loss for the Razorbacks. Arkansas has not won an SEC game since 2011. Seventeen straight conference losses (could they PLEASE break this streak before LSU goes to Fayetteville next weekend?). Arkansas Fight isn't sure what to say anymore.
Texas A&M (6-3, 2-3)
Hey, remember when everybody was really bummed out about only beating ULM 31-0? The numbers aren't good overall -- just 243 yards of offense for the Second Aggies compared to 347 for the Warhawks, and just 106 yards for Kyle Allen in his first career start. But there are a couple that Good Bull Hunting can point to. But that defense is going to be a huge concern with a trip to Auburn coming up.
