There were some wild moments on the gridiron beyond the borders of the Bluegrass yesterday. Let’s run it back.
Oklahoma def. Ohio State 31-16
Saturday night’s main event was a showdown pitting Oklahoma’s new leading man and former UK offensive coordinator candidate Lincoln Riley against the most dominant coach outside the SEC in Urban Meyer. The atmosphere was ripe for a breakthrough, and break through OU did.
Chalk this win up to the play of QB Baker Mayfield, who threw for a dominant 386 yards and 3 touchdowns, including this little beauty of a catch by former Wildcat Jeff Badet:

After his performance, consider Mayfield the early favorite to take home the Heisman Trophy.
Clemson def. Auburn 14-6
I, along with many others according to Twitter, was unaware that Clemson apparently storms the field after every home game, whether they win or lose.
Every game, win or lose…

Whatever floats your boat, I guess. Just seems to me like you might wanna save the fireworks for the 4th of July, if you catch my drift.
Georgia def. Notre Dame 20-19
USC def. Stanford 42-24
Mississippi St. def. LA Tech 57-21
Why include this rout? Well…
This play resulted in a loss of almost 90 yards.

That’s legitimately impressive.
