College Football: Week 13 Results

What a weekend! Lots happened in the college football world between last Wednesday and Sunday. #1 Oregon outscored #20 Arizona, #2 Auburn edged #9 Alabama by a single point, #3 Boise State lost in OT to #19 Nevada, #6 LSU lost to #12 Arkansas, and #10 Oklahoma State fell to #14 Oklahoma among others. Could be a whole lot of shakin’ goin’ on in the rankings this afternoon.
[The three numbers for the rankings are from the AP Top 25, The Harris Coaches’ Poll, and An “NR” means that that particular poll did Not Rank the team.]

1/1/1 Oregon (11-0) The Ducks outscored the #20 Arizona Wildcats (7-4) on Friday 48-29 to remain undefeated.

2/2/2 Auburn (12-0) The Tigers fell behind 24-0 midway through the second quarter Friday and it looked like they were going down. But there was lots of time and a Cameron Newton on their side. Auburn managed to climb out of the hole they had dug to edge #9 Alabama (9-3) 28-27.

3/3/3 Boise State (10-1) The Broncos touted run defense got pawned by #19 Nevada (11-1) as the Wolf Pack ran wild in the second half gaining 239 yards on the ground (as opposed to a mere 8 for the Broncos). Still, it took a missed field goal at the end of regulation and another in overtime play for the 14-point underdog Nevada team to emerge victorious 34-31.

4/4/4 TCU (12-0) The Horned Frogs did what they had to do in an impressive 66-17 win over New Mexico (1-11).

5/5/5 Wisconsin (11-1) The big news is that the Badgers didn’t score in the fourth quarter against the Northwestern Wildcats (7-5), but that’s okay. They had already racked up 70 points to win 70-23. The third time this year Wisconsin had 70 or more points.

6/6/7 LSU (10-2) The Tigers fell to the #12 Arkansas Razorbacks (10-2) 31-23.

7/8/6 Stanford (11-1) The Cardinal shut out the Beavers of Oregon State (5-6) by a score of 38-0 .

8/7/8 Ohio State (11-1) The Buckeyes laid it to the Michigan Wolverines (7-5) 37-7.

9/11/10 Alabama (9-3) The Tide lost to #2 Auburn (12-0) Friday 28-27 despite jumping out to a 24-0 lead in the first half.

10/9/9 Oklahoma State (10-2) The Cowboys fell to their intrastate rival, #15 Oklahoma (10-2)…again. This time it was 47-41.

18/17/18 South Carolina (9-3) The Gamecocks spotted the Clemson Tigers (6-7) a touchdown but yielded nothing else for the rest of the game as USC (east) came up with a 29-7 victory.

19/19/19 Nevada (11-1) The Wolf Pack edged the #3 Boise State Broncos (10-1). When the immovable object (Boise run defense) meets the ultimate movable object (Nevada’s rushing offense) what happens? An overtime game, that’s what. Nevada gained little in the first half but in the second…WHOA MOMMA! 239 yards on the ground. Then two missed FGs my Boise (one in regulation and another in overtime) sealed the deal, 34-31 Nevada.
