Elsewhere in College Football…

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.

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.

Other results:

Georgia def. Notre Dame 20-19

USC def. Stanford 42-24

Mississippi St. def. LA Tech 57-21

Why include this rout? Well…

That’s legitimately impressive.

    Baker Mayfield has cahones of steel. This dude went into the Horseshoe, tore apart the OSU defense, led his team to a decisive victory, did a victory lap with the OU flag, and planted said flag at midfield. I’ll definitely be rooting for him the rest of the year.

    I thought the NCAA fined the school if fans rush the field? And the fines get bigger and bigger the more you do it? Am I just completely making up a story, or does that rule only apply to UK?

    It may be semantics, but at Clemson they do not “rush the field.” Clemson allows fans to go on the field after every game. Sometimes, like after last week’s game, it’s a relatively few and is much less celebratory than it is kids on the field. Last night looked more like “rushing the field” but technically it’s not.

      That UL game wasn’t even in my top 41 thoughts. Or my bottom 38….

      Lol, wow. We play in the SEC. Louisville is maybe the 5th best team we play every year at best. Definitely not our super bowl. We have a winning record vs UL and are 5-5 in the last 10. UK is Louisvilles SB in basketball, though. We own you.

      Yep, Jackson got destroyed by Houston and LSU. Louisville is overrated. Their defense is soft. Jackson is great but that’s it. Why would UL beating an 0-2 UNC team be on this list? OU, Clemson, GA, USC all got much bigger wins. I watched the highlights Saturday night and UL was the 9th game they showed and it’s only because of Jackson. UL fans are ridiculous.

      Will they be showing the banner vacation ceremony on TV statewide, or just locally? I want to make sure to DVR it…

    AdamN that penalty for rushing the field/court is an SEC rule, not an ncaa rule.

    DennyC as great of a player as Lamar is, going on the road and beating the number two team by 15 is far more superior than beating an u ranked team by 12. Especially when Lamar has basically been average in 3 of his last 4 games.

      lol, exactly. Georgia beating ND and USC over Stanford were much bigger wins too. UL was favored to win that game. And here’s the best part. UK-EKU had more people at the game than UL-UNC.
