This weekend was great, the Midwest got some sun, MSU earned a B1G win, and we had a number of upsets in the Top 25. This is the sort of weekend which makes watching college football worthwhile.

Mizzou stays perfect, upsets Georgia in Athens

Facing their first real hurdle of the season, the Missouri Tigers walked into the Athens and escaped with a win. Over the course of the game, Georgia managed to out gain Mizzou 454 yards to 375 yards, but the 4 turn overs Georgia gave up made up for the yardage difference. Two fumbles in the second quarter lead to two Mizzou touchdowns and opened up the game for the Tigers. The Bulldogs were able to shut down the Tigers in the 3rd quarter while bring the score withing to possessions, but Aaron Murray’s two interceptions in the forth put an end to the Bulldogs come back. This win puts Mizzou in the lead of the SEC East division, but in order to keep the top spot they’ll have to take care of #22 Florida next week and #11 South Carolina the week after.

Texas surprises Oklahoma and the rest of the College Football.

I honestly thought that the Texas Longhorns were going to mail in the rest of the season. I figured they’d beat most of the teams on their schedule under .500 while losing to their ranked opponents. I figured they would have an underwhelming season with 6 wins and we would finally see Mack Brown retire after 16 seasons with Texas. Obviously, Mack Brown has greater expectations for his team than I do. Saturday afternoon, the Longhorns upset the #12 Oklahoma Sooners in a 36-20 victory. The game was won by the Texas defense scoring on a turnover, running backs Jonathan Gray and Malcolm Brown putting up over 240 yards combine, and a late punt return by the special teams unit. It looks like Mack Brown isn’t ready to leave Texas just yet.

Unranked Utah break’s Stanford’s 13 game winning streak

Utah’s victory over Stanford marks the first time any Utah team has beaten a top 5 ranked team at home. Coming into the game, Utah was 0-2 against Pac-12 opponents. Don’t be mislead by that record, they had lost to Oregon St in overtime and lost to #12 UCLA by only a touchdown. With that in mind, they came strong against Stanford. After matching Stanford in the first quarter, Utah managed to keep the Cardinal offense at bay for next two quarters while inching ahead with a touchdown and a field goal. An early field goal in the forth quarter put the Utes up 2 possessions. Stanford managed to score a quick touchdown with 9 minutes left to play and after the defense held the Utes to a 3 and out, Stanford mounted what could have been a game wining drive. An impressive 82 yard drive was stymied and the ball was turned over on downs at the 6 yard line, the Utes killed the clock to complete their 27-21 upset of the Cardinals.
