Results of the Ninth Gaming Week of the NCAA

The third consecutive week was not without a sensational sensation. First, Georgia lost, then Wisconsin. This time it was Oklahoma's turn, the defense of which failed the game with the Kansas State. The attack, led by Jalen Hurts, tried to organize a comeback, but they did not have enough time.

Of the other games, it is worth noting the good game of Auburn and LSS, the next victories of Penn State and Minnesota, who will play with each other on November 9, as well as the confident victory of the Ohio State, which proved to be one of the strongest teams in the country.

As for the other leaders of the rating, Alabama and Clemson once again warmed up on their opponents. And one cannot fail to note the long-awaited victory of Jim Harbaugh over an opponent from the top 10: Michigan confidently beat Notre Dame and, it seems, completely deprived them of the chance of a playoff.

*Winners of the week

Ohio State and J.K Dobbins, Wisconsin with his own weapon

It seemed that rainy and windy weather should play into the hands of Wisconsin, whose main weapon is the remote game. In fact, the Ohio State managed to conduct a quick drive in the debut of the second quarter, led 10-0, and then methodically began to strangle the opponent. Jonathan Taylor's starry runnback was completely invisible, and the entire Wisconsin attack could only score 191 yards. The Badgers did not find a way to confront Chase Young and the company, gaining just the first nine downs per game.

The best on the field was another runner, J.K Dobbins. Runningback Ohio State scored 163 yards and scored two touchdowns, as if not noticing Wisconsin's vaunted defense. Master Tig III (76 yards) also made a significant contribution to the remote game.

At the moment, the Ohio State is the best team in the Big 10 and, possibly, in the entire NCAA.

Louisiana State, adding before meeting with Alabama

Gradually, everyone becomes accustomed to the fact that the assault on LSS is Joe Burrow. The game against Auburn showed that the team has different ways of scoring. The match of the rivals from the top 10 turned out to be quite tense, but LSS could win a major victory over the conference neighbors.

A good match was held by the defense of Auburn, twice stopping opponents at the border of the test zone. But then the attack of Louisiana State reoriented towards the removal. This has become one of the decisive factors in their favor. Running Clyde Edwards-Helaire played the best game of his career, scoring 136 yards with a touchdown on the ground and adding seven moves to them 51 yards. Joe Burrow has 321 yards (32 of 42) with touchdown and interception.

The defense of LSS responded with an excellent game, blocking the air of Bo Nix and forcing the players of Auburn to break through ten antlers. An important victory should give the team confidence before the battle with Alabama, which will be held on November 9.

During his work in the program, the result of Ed Orgeron against rivals from the top ten ranking is nine victories with three defeats. It is easy to guess who his wards lost these three times ...

Shane Buechele, creating history with the UML

Last weekend, Buechele did not have his best game, but did enough to defeat Houston. UCL won the eighth match since the start of the season, achieving historic results. The program last started in 1982, when Eric Dickerson and Craig James shone in his attack. Sonny Dykes successfully continued to develop the work of Chad Morris and brought his players to a new level.

In the game with Houston, Buechele scored 203 yards (20 of 38) with two touchdowns and an interception. In total, since the beginning of the season, he has counted 20 touchdowns with seven interceptions. While out of the shadow of Sam Ehlinger, the quarterback takes his chance. Ahead of the team matches with Memphis, East Carolina, Fleet and Tulane , but for now the UML looks like one of the contenders for getting into the New Year's bowls.

Chase Young, who increased his chances for Heisman Trophy

At the moment, Ohio State's fantastic defender is the best student football player, which he confirmed by destroying the Wisconsin attack. Of course, in the fight for the Heisman prize, he is far from a favorite, but now his chances have grown somewhat. Oklahoma Jalen Hurts lost, Jonathan Taylor was virtually invisible on the field, and Tua Tagovailoa was injured. Whatever the outcome of this race, Young will definitely win in the draft in spring 2020.

In the game against Wisconsin, Young made four secs and forced two fumbles. Now he has 13.5 secs on his account and this is a repetition of the result of Joey Bosa in the 2014 season. Only Young has four more matches ahead.

The Ohio State program is gradually becoming an incubator of elite passershares. First Joey, then his brother Nick, now Chase Young. What surprises will the team coaches prepare for us next season?

Continuing to beat Penn State

Of course Michigan State spend a mediocre season, but James Franklin wards deserve the most flattering words. Quarterback Penn State Sean Clifford threw four touchdowns, and the rest for the victory did the defense team. At the same time, the opponent managed to close the takeaway led by Noah Cain. In the land of Nittany Lions were able to score only 113 yards.

A week later, the team is waiting for a meeting with the same invincible while Minnesota. For Penn State, this is a chance to use Oklahoma's misfire and climb into the top 5 ranking. For Minnesota, an opportunity to prove the validity of their claims to prestigious bowls. The favorite in this game will be the Nittany Lions. James Franklin's guys are very strong.

Other Big-10 Leadership Teams

Minnesota can be criticized for not the strongest schedule, but the team is doing its job conscientiously. Their last victim was Maryland, who failed to provide decent resistance. Golden Gophers are good on both sides of the ball and we can only wait for their match against a quality opponent.

Iowa players surprisingly quickly dealt with Northwestner, as if trying to have time to watch other matches of the day. A good match was played by AJ Epenesa, claiming for the first round of the end. In the second half, the linear assaults by Tristan Wirfs and Alaric Jackson provided work space for newbie runnerback Tyler Goodson, who gained 58 yards.

Michigan, finally beating a strong opponent

For Michigan, any victory over Notre Dame would have been a good result, but the team of Jim Harbo, to the surprise of many, inflicted a rather sensitive defeat on the Irish.

Under heavy rain, Michigan's defense blocked oxygen to Ian Buk, who scored only 73 yards in the entire match (8 of 25). The removal of Notre Dame did not shine either - the best result of the team was 15 yards of Jahmir Smith.

Weather conditions did not allow Shea Patterson to demonstrate his best qualities, but his quarterback was backed up by Hassan Hawkins (149 yards) and Zach Sharbonnet (74 yards, two touchdowns).

For a while, Jim Harbo was able to reassure his critics.

* Loser weeks

Oklahoma, a victim of Manhattan magic

In the Bill Snyder era, Kansas State home games from time to time ended with amazing results. On Saturday, the first such took place under Chris Klieman. In the second half of the game, the home team tore the defense of Suners and secured a reserve for victory 48-41. Oklahoma almost won back the 25 points backlog, successfully broke the onside kick two minutes before the end, but the judges recorded a violation of the rules. After that, the Wildcats successfully burned the remaining time.

Kansas State scored the first victory since 2006 over an rival in the top 5. An important factor in their success was the use of opponent losses and the successful actions of special teams. The Quarterback Skylar Thompson chalked up 213 pass yards and four remote touchdowns. The team acted excellently on the key third downs.

The chances of Oklahoma in the playoffs have become significantly less.

Colorado, who missed a great chance to win

The final quarter of Colorado began with an advantage of ten points. It seemed that the guys Mel Tucker had everything to interrupt his series of failures - the score in the full-time confrontation between Colorado and Torgens 0-13. The defense of Southern California was bled by injuries, and the runningback corps suffered serious losses.

However, Kedon Slovis managed to return Trojans into the game and three minutes before the end Michael Pittman brought the victorious touchdown. Southern California players retained work for their coach Clay Helton for another week and continue to fight for victory in the Pac-12 South Division.

Texas, who made many productive mistakes

On Saturday's game, TCUs demonstrated the worst form design of the season, but otherwise were in perfect order, and the numerous mistakes made by Texas Longhorns players led to the logical result of 27-37.

Sam completely failed the match Sam Ehlinger, who scored 321 yards (22 of 48) with two touchdowns, but threw four interceptions. This allowed the opponent to score 13 points. Now hardly anyone will remember that before the start of the season, Sam was included in the number of applicants for the Heisman Trophy.

Texas defense sharply lacked BJ Foster and Demarvion Overshown, in the absence of which Max Duggan from TCU threw 273 yards with two touchdowns.

Longhorns go 5–3 and may forget about their hopes to compete for the final of the conference.

Haters of Alabama and Clemson

Recent games have shown that possible problems of the season's favorites have been exaggerated. So far, everything is going to mean that we will almost certainly see both teams in the playoffs.

Alabama with Mac Jones dismantled the unfortunate Arkansas. Coach Tua scored 235 yards with three touchdowns. Trevor Lawrence finally reminded himself of last year and helped his team defeat Boston College.

Of course, no one expected defeats from both teams, but the style of their victories once again proved the validity of claims for participation in the playoffs.

Arizona State, ruining a good season

It has been repeated many times that the Pac-12 is its own special atmosphere. Now only Utah and Oregon look more or less stable there. It is noticeable that the general level of the conference teams is gradually growing, but most of them lack stability.

Arizona State is an example of a team that looks new every week. They started season 5-1, stupidly losing to Colorado. Then they could not fight on equal terms with the attack of Utah and lost 3-21. The last game was a shootout in which the Sun Devils failed the defense. UCLA Chip Kelly found the answers to all the threats of the opponent.

While the rest of the conference is fighting for the bowls, the Arizona State is moving in the opposite direction.

Texas Tech giving Kansas victory

This season, fans have already seen enough stupid decisions by coaches and players. Texas Tech representatives also decided to take part in this correspondence competition.

13 seconds before the end of the game, with a score of 34-34, Kansas had to break the field goal from 40 yards. Liam Jones kick was blocked and the ball bounced into the hands of Texas Tech Douglas Coleman. He tried to run forward with him, did not see the open field, turned around and, trying to give a lateral pass, just threw the ball. He was covered by a Kansas player. Until the end of the match there were two seconds. A field goal with 32 yards was accurate, Kansas won.
