College Football Gameday Thread: Week 7

Authors note: Unfortunately, I sprained my hand playing softball this evening. I have my fourteen-year-old daughter typing this post for me.

Last weekend the college football world, there was no shortage of excitement and upsets. The biggest upset of all was the Gamecocks of South Carolina beating the Alabama Crimson Tide by a score of 35 - 21. This week, The Wisconsin Badgers take on the now #1 Ohio State Buckeyes. This game has all the making of another big time upset. Running Back John Clay (A.K.A. The Manimal) could potentially single-handedly run through the Buckeyes defensive line as well as the linebacking corp.


Join me after the jump for the rest of the recap of last weeks games.

Recapping the rest of week 6:

#17 Michigan State @ #18 Michigan

The Wolverines entered last week riding on the spectacular play of Slash-Quaterback Denard Robinson. His play did not pan out to be enough to win. Michigan State was just too much for Coach Rich Rodriguez and company to handle. The Spartans Quaterback Kirk Cousins did just enough to knock off the rabid Wolverines.

#16 Stanford @ USC

Andrew Luck is considered to be the top Quaterback in the nation. USC brought everything they could against a high-powered Cardinal offense. Luck and the rest of the offense was just too much for the Trojan defense to keep contained. I fully expect to see more from the young and multi-dimensional talented Andrew Luck. He is surely making a valid case to be considered the overall number one pick in the NFL Draft for next year depending on which team will have that selection. Stanford barely hung on to beat the Trojans 37-35. They will need to do more from here on out to prove to the nation that they are worthy of being slotted were they're at.

#11 Arkansas vs. Texas A&M

This game was set up to be a battle of the Quarterbacks between Arkansas Quarterback Ryan Mallett against A&M's Jerrod Johnson. The game was a close hard-fought war but the Razorbacks and Ryan Mallett just had too much talent and coaching to be defeated. Mallett catapulted himself as a number-one draft pick quite potentially if he continues to win games like this. However, he did make a few very bad mistakes. He will need to rectify those types of decisions as the season progresses.
