CFB Week 5 Weekly Roundup- Multiple Games Come Down to the Wire
Week 5 of college football had many fans on the edge of their seats to the very end. The SEC brought the heat once again with some incredibly entertaining matchups. Who came away with victories on Saturday, and who just came up short? We’ve got you covered.
Welcome to the Tide 100.9 Weekly Roundup, where we highlight some of the best storylines of the week in college football that you may have missed.
Georgia (1) at Missouri - Defending Champs Survive Upset Scare
The number one ranked Bulldogs struggled again for the second-consecutive week, this time against SEC East rival Missouri. After missing the game-winning kick at Auburn last week, Missouri kicker Harrison Mevis nailed all 5 attempted kicks Saturday, accounting for most of the Tigers’ scoring. Missouri held the lead for the entirety of the game until a touchdown late in the fourth quarter from Georgia running back Daijun Edwards, which saved the Bulldogs from an embarrassing defeat.
Final- Georgia 26, Missouri 22
Kentucky (7) at Ole Miss (14) - Late Miscues Cost Wildcats the Victory
The Wildcats couldn’t get it done in their toughest matchup this season to date. On top of quarterback Will Levis dislocating his finger on a safety in the second quarter, the Wildcats turned the ball over on their final three possessions of the game, each in Ole Miss territory. Kentucky actually scored to take the lead late in the fourth, but it was negated due to a penalty and they fumbled the next play. Ole Miss improves to 5-0 on the year thanks to a strong rushing attack and the strong second half by their defense.
Final- Kentucky 19, Ole Miss 22
LSU at Auburn - Harsin’s Already Hot Seat Grows Warmer
The voodoo in Jordan-Hare Stadium must’ve ran out against Missouri as Auburn drops their matchup against LSU. After going up 17-0 early into the second quarter, Auburn didn't put any more points on the board and instead surrendered 21 straight to the opposing Tigers. LSU quarterback Jayden Daniels only completed 8 passes in the game, but thanks to a strong rushing attack and a few costly Auburn turnovers, LSU escaped with the road victory. How much longer does Bryan Harsin have after blowing a 17 point lead at home?
Final- LSU 21, Auburn 17
Oklahoma (18) at TCU - Sooners Drop Second Straight in Embarrassing Fashion
Not much went right for Oklahoma in Saturday’s game against TCU. After allowing 27 points in just the first quarter, starting quarterback Dillon Gabriel suffered a head injury in the second which knocked him out of the game. But not even Baker Mayfield or Kyler Murray could’ve salvaged this game for the Sooners, as the OU defense gave up 668 yards of offense and 8 touchdowns to the Horned Frogs. Oklahoma’s defense looks to be even worse than previous years.
Final- Oklahoma 24, TCU 55
