Alabama trips up A&M

It wasn’t about revenge, or at least Nick Saban and Alex McCarron will say so. Texas A&M was looking to upset the Crimson Tide in back-to-back games, and looked like they might have done it early on. Texas A&M leaped ahead by two touchdowns early on, but 35 unanswered points between the first and third quarters was enough to put Alabama in control of the game. The most exciting moment happened late in the game when A&M forced a Bama rb T.J. Yeldon to fumble on the 5 and Manziel responded with a 95 yd td pass to Mike Evans. This brought the Aggies within 7 of the Tide, but a 5 and a half minute follow up drive by Alabama, capped with a McCarron touchdown, iced the game.

Nebraska fails to UCLA Bruins

PAC-12 sweep Big10 with Sun Devils victory

Gary Andersen suffers his first loss as the Badgers head coach when they traveled out to Arizona to face the Sun Devils. After trailing by a field goal late in the first, Wisconsin took the lead in the second half and held it until early in the forth quarter. After a late game touchdown to bring the game within two points, the Badgers drove down the field and positioned themselves for a field goal with 18 seconds left when all hell broke loose. Quarterback Joel Stave hikes the ball with 18 on the clock and puts in puts it down in the center of the field. Perhaps because the Arizona defensive linemen didn’t see his knee his the grass, he hops on the ball and doesn’t move for 9 seconds. Finally, officials get him up and reset the ball with 4 seconds left. Wisconsin was then unable to spike the ball with any time left on the clock, which lead to a Sun Devil’s victory. Since then, the PAC-12 has officially reprimanded the officials for a poor job, said they “fell short of the high standard” that the PAC-12 holds. Regardless, Sun Devils get the win.
