Since we like college football so much here at the Eye on College Football, and a picture is worth a thousand words, what better way to wind our way through the week that was in college football than with a photo diary to document the crazy fans, incredible plays and monumental upsets in the sport?
Since we like college football so much here at the Eye on College Football, and a picture is worth a thousand words, what better way to wind our way through the week that was in college football than with a photo diary to document the crazy fans, incredible plays and monumental upsets in the sport? Here's the latest edition covering Week 5, with all photos from US Presswire.
Washington kicked off a crazy week of games by upsetting Stanford thanks to a heck of a defensive effort and some big plays on offense. Students rushed the field to congratulate the Huskies like Austin Seferian-Jenkins, who was one cool customer in the aftermath.
In the game of the weekend, West Virginia outscored Baylor in an offensive explosion that saw quarterback Geno Smith throw eight touchdowns. As the Mountaineers' mascot said on Twitter during the middle of the game, he needed more gunpowder for the high-scoring affair.
Johnny Manziel, known to Texas A&M fans as ''Johnny Football,'' put up quite a show against Arkansas on Saturday, throwing for 453 yards and three touchdowns on his way to an SEC record of total yardage.
All-purpose threat Kain Colter did just about everything to keep Northwestern undefeated on Saturday. Florida State's EJ Manuel wasn't as sharp as he was against Clemson last week but still managed to keep the Seminoles' perfect record intact with some big plays against South Florida.
There was essentially a monsoon on Saturday night in Hattiesburg, Miss., and Louisville and Southern Miss managed to slog one out in, um, damp conditions. Seriously though, look at what they played in!
Thunderstorms were not limited to Mississippi on Saturday either, as a big one rolled into the Dallas-Fort Worth area and sat right over the TCU-SMU game. Skye Dawson still managed to make a heck of a catch despite the downpour and used his helmet for some help as the Horned Frogs won the Battle for the Iron Skillet.
The N's (Nebraska) managed to beat the W's (Wisconsin) in a prime-time match up that would make "Sesame Street" proud. Good for the Cornhuskers fans on recognizing the work of longtime coach and athletic director Tom Osborne, who announced his retirement last week.
Marquess Wilson made quite a catch against Oregon but Washington State couldn't come close to the second-ranked Ducks in Seattle. Arizona broke out the copper helmets for its game against Oregon State, but the Beavers' late touchdown drive was enough to pull off the win on the road.
