Nick Saban is now 24-1 against former assistant coaches. This summer, A&M coach Jimbo Fisher called his shot: “Heck yes, I think we’re going to beat them. That’s why we’re here. They’re the standard right now, but we have to learn to beat them.”
#6 Oklahoma 55vs. #21 Texas 48
Down 7-28 in the first half, Oklahoma head coach Lincoln Riley benched preseason All-American QB Spencer Rattler.
In his place, freshman Caleb Williams mounted the comeback, including this ridiculous touchdown throw to tie the game in the 4th quarter.
Riley has not said who Oklahoma’s starter will be going forward.
For Texas, it’s the first loss in program history after leading by 21+ points.
#17 Ole Miss 52 vs. #13 Arkansas 51
The Rebels and Razorbacks combined to score 68 points in the second half alone… the game’s over / under was 67 points total.
After scoring a last-second touchdown, Arkansas went for the 2-point conversion to win the game but couldn’t convert.
#3 Iowa 23 vs. #4 Penn State
Iowa edged Penn State in college football’s second top-5 matchup of the season, taking advantage of a few Nittany Lion injuries and playing with tempo for the first time in… forever.
If you haven’t seen it, check out the Iowa wave. Each home game, the entire stadium waves to the attached children’s hospital.
Looking to week 7: After six ranked teams fell in week six, week seven looks a bit more tame with only two ranked matchups.
#1 Georgia vs. #11 Kentucky
#12 Oklahoma State vs. #25 Texas
