Man. It actually looked like the big ten was going to have a good showing against the sec.
That Michigan/SC game was awesome.
#6 Stanford is playing unranked Wisconsin
Unranked Baylor beat #17 UCLA
#23 Texas beat #13 Oregon State
#19 Boise State beat unranked Washington
LSU lost by 1-point to Clemson. Ive been saying all year that LSU is overrated.
South Carolina beat Michigan. That isn't a huge mismatch they seem to match up pretty well.
Northwestern beat Miss State. Miss State came in unranked and hasn't beat a team with a winning record all year.
Vanderbilt beat NC State pretty easily.
Georgia beat Nebraska pretty easily (that could be seen as a slight mismatch)
LSU may be overrated but a lot of people were calling for them to roll Clemson.
If someone would have said a month ago that a good matchup for South Carolina would be Michigan they would've been laughed off the PSD board.
That Georgia/Nebraska game was tied going into the 4th qtr. The same Georgia who was a few Yds short of going to the NC game and the same Nebraska that got rolled by 40 by an unranked Wisconsin their last time out.
Maybe they're not mismatches but I didn't expect to see the SEC laboring so hard against average opponents.
I don't wanna take anything away from Clowney because he's a monster and clearly an elite lineman + top pick once he's eligible, but the hit on Smith is being overblown. Michigan's linemen blew their assignments and let him go free, then he lit up a 4' midget running back. Anyone given a free path to Smith would destroy him.
Like I said though, Clowney is a freak and a total game changer, but unblocked on a tiny little fella, of course he's gonna obliterate the poor guy.
Good to see the Red and Black close out strong. Run D was a disappointment all season, but still won the East (again) and their bowl game. Best team Richt's had since the 2002 group that went 13-1 and won the Sugar Bowl.
I'm pretty impressed with A&M's defense. I knew they would put up points on offense but they have shut down OK pretty consistently.
