With Tagovailoa out of the game with an ankle injury, Tennessee has been able to hang around with Alabama, Tide up just 21-13 in the 3rd.

Tagovailoa's injury is a high ankle sprain. Expected to miss a week or two. They have Arkansas next week, then a bye before playing LSU Nov 9th.

#14 Boise State loses at BYU, 28-25. That opens the door for SMU to claim the G5 New Years Bowl bid. The silver lining for Boise is it doesn't impact their quest to win the MWC, so they could still play on Jan 1, but will likely need help.

Oregon Washington was amazing. What a scene. So glad I went.

Wisconsin. Losing to Illinois? Awful!

Texas. You won but allowed Kansas to score 48 points on you at home? Awful!

People still think it was a mistake for Herm to go to ASU?

I didn't love the hire - but it was never a bad hire.  While he hadn't coached in awhile, and had been away from the college game even longer... he had a large profile. Parents (and players you want) would respect the discipline, professionalism, etc. 

He is recruiting well (2020 Class is currently 30th overall), and that's a credit to him.

Tua has surgery on his ankle.

Will he get back for LSU?

The AP has put OSU ahead of Clemson, so it's okay for you traditionalists to do the same now. I promise. ;)

Deified-Dozen-2019-Week-8.jpg

 

https://www.baltimor...ll-week-8-poll/

 

Week 8 was big for the Pac-12, and also saw a major upset. Oregon got a huge road win against Washington to move from #12 to #11, and Utah took the Ducks' #12 spot, making its first Dozen appearance this season with a win over Arizona State. The Utes' ascendance came at the expense of Wisconsin, who took a bad loss at Illinois. The other marquee game of the week featured Penn State holding off a furious comeback effort by Michigan to remain undefeated and move up to #6. Ohio State was also a big mover, up to #3 coming off an impressive win on a road Friday game at Northwestern.

 

Week 9 will see attention shift back to the SEC, as #8 Auburn goes to Death Valley to play #2 LSU. An Auburn win keeps their Playoff hopes alive, while an LSU win could vault them to #1 given Alabama's lighter SoS so far. Meanwhile Wisconsin will have little time to lick their wounds, as they head to Columbus to play Ohio State. A win keeps their Playoff hopes alive and maybe vaults them back into the Deified Dozen, while a loss puts their odds of playing for the conference title in serious jeopardy. #7 Notre Dame travels to Ann Arbor to face the aforementioned Wolverines, who will hope to keep their late-game momentum going against their old rivals. Keep an eye on Oregon hosting Washington State. The Cougars have won four straight in that series, and Mike Leach's air raid always seems to win a game or two they aren't expected to.

KState up 24-23 at halftime over Oklahoma. Their defense is incredibly vulnerable. Hurts having another big day though, 204 passing yards and 55 rushing yards and 2 TD's. I expect them to pull away in the 2nd half. Great game so far.

Ohio St up 10-0 early in the 2nd half over Wisconsin, who can't get Taylor going, or anything else offensively. Fields struggled early and has been sacked 5 times already, but has limited making mistakes and orchestrated a masterful TD drive before halftime.
