UNC has had two impressive late-game comebacks against S Carolina and Miami so far this season. Mack Brown & Co. are going to need another one to go 3-0, losing to Wake 21-0 at the half.

Good finish coming in this UNC/Wake game. Carolina cut the lead to 21-18 with just over 2 minutes left.

 

FG Wake, 24-18, UNC to get the ball at their 25 with 1:09 left, no timeouts.

Poor situational awareness by UNC's QB at the end as time runs out. Wake wins and goes to 3-0, but in an oddity this was actually a non-conference game.

 

UNC probably should have been allowed 1 more play, but doesn't look like that will happen....

 

EDIT: Good explanation by ESPN in the studio on that last play. Because the UNC player's forward momentum was stopped while he was inbounds, the clock keeps running, even though he immediately stepped out of bounds with 1 second still left.

Saw a first in the WSU/Houston game....the WSU slot receiver snapping the ball to the QB at the start of the play. It got a penalty, but only because he didn't execute the snap in one motion. If he had, it would have been legal.

The last play in the UNC game was so sad. Probably wouldn't have made a difference but they would have had a hail mary shot to the end zone. Instead....ah they lose. Stupid.

BYU and USC headed to OT. Some, well lets say, home cooking calls in this one.

Interesting day for the Pac-12. USC chokes (of course) in Provo in OT, but Arizona St pulls a big upset on the road at Michigan St.

 

Also not a banner day for the B1G. Two ranked teams lose (MD and MSU) a third currently losing (Iowa), a fourth (Penn St) looked less-than-impressive in beating Pitt by 7 (they were a 17.5 point favorite). And Illinois (bye Lovie) blows it at home on a last second FG by E Michigan.

Three ranked teams already lost to unranked teams today and Iowa could be next. That's why they play the game.

Keep an eye on Kentucky vs Florida too. Wildcats lead 21-16 early in the 4th.

 

Looks like Iowa will escape with a 1-point win. But #25 UVA might need to be put on upset alert, they head to the 4th Qtr down 17-10 to Florida St.

Auburn faces their 2nd top 20 team in their first 4 games in Texas A&M on Saturday. Meanwhile, Alabama continues their daunting schedule, facing Southern Mississippi this week.

Headed to Boise in a couple of hours. Black out game tonight against Air Force. Gawd I hate the triple option.

Utah and likely the PAC 12 are done in terms of the playoff.

Maybe Wash St makes a run. That’s about it.

Wisconsin was an obvious play today, right?

Glad to see Michigan getting exposed. The D is overrated and basic, the WR's are super talented but inconsistent, as is Patterson. A good, talented team, but in no way a top 10 team.

Jonathan Taylor on his way to a potentially historic day. Already 143 rushing yards and 2 TD's with 3 quarters to go.

JT has been in the locker room since that post, but it hasn't mattered. It's now 21-0 Wisconsin, who is just controlling the ball longer without their star.
