This weekend of college football, like most, did not disappoint. After another crazy weekend of college football, I want to highlight some of the best performances from Saturday.
It’s been a while since Michigan has been a top team in the nation. It seemed like after the loss to Appalachian State, the Wolverines went downhill from there. Not this season, though. Head Coach Jim Harbaugh has worked his wizardry magic to put this team back with the elites in the country. He has brought Michigan back to what it once was; a power offense with a shut down, physical defense. A team is bound to win games with three shut outs in a row and only 38 points given up all season. Harbaugh has brought life back to the Maze and Blue. We’ll see if they’re a contender this Saturday against Michigan State.
What a week it was for Texas. After going 1-4, this team was in the pits. And with Oklahoma on the schedule, things weren’t looking up for head coach Charlie Strong. But the Longhorns came to play on Saturday. They brought everything they had to beat a good Oklahoma team. The Longhorns ran the ball for over 300 yards and were able to control the ball to get the 24-17 win in the Red River Rivalry. Strong may have turned his career around on Saturday after stunning the Sooners.
Notice, first of all, I did not say the whole Florida team, because their offense needs a little work. However, Missouri’s defense is good and the redshirt freshman Will Grier can only get better as the season rolls on. Any who, this Florida defense is legit. Will Muschamp left Jim McElwain with a loaded defense, to say the least. The Gators defense once again proved strong, after holding the Tigers to just three points and only 250 yards. Maybe it’s beginners luck, but I don’t think that’s a thing in the SEC. As much as it pains me to say this, the Gators are pretty good.
Tennessee’s Josh Dobbs-430 yards, 5 TD’s
Leonard Fournette-158 yards and auctioning off his jersey for the South Carolina flooding, so classy.
Baylor-66 points, 321 points through 5 games (didn’t know that was possible).
