College Football: Week 4 Wrap up
Total Pro Sports – Where do we begin with our College Football Weekly Wrap up? It was a wild start to the week a shootout in Louisville, followed by the overtime thriller in Boulder, concluded with a tight contest in East Hartford as the Huskies move to 4-0 on the season and become legitimate contenders for the Top 25 power ranking.
Saturday also held its own pack of punches as some critical games had some interesting endings. Let us begin in Auburn where the battle of the unbeaten Tigers took place. LSU which was rather lack luster in the first half really opened up the play book in the second, the main reason was Jarrett Lee. He finished the game 11-22 for 182 yards and 2 touchdowns. In a game that was believed a touchdown from either team was enough to win the game, big plays were being made the entire second half. This was a crucial win for LSU as it keeps its national title hopes alive.
A game that probably flew under the radar but had great significance to the teams involved was the match up between Utah and Air Force. This game did not disappoint as the see-saw affair was not determined until the final seconds of the game when Darrell Mack scored one of his three touchdowns in the second half with only 58 seconds on the clock. The Utes now move to 4-0 on the season and may move to as high as 13 this week in the power rankings.
Some other meaningful games included Florida’s dominance over SEC rival Tennessee, Boise’s upset of 17th ranked Oregon, North Carolina State outlasts the surprisingly upstart Pirates of East Carolina, Wake Forest out kicked the Seminoles in their ACC opener and Fresno St. survives a near shocker at the hands of the Rockets.
This week we went 1-2 in our college football plays. We won our play withTroy +21 as Ohio St only won the game by 18 points. In the second game we liked the over in the Missouri/Buffalo game which should have gone over the total if not for the multiple turnovers by both teams in the oppositions territory. We were unlucky to not win this one as Missouri could have easily reached the mid-50’s to low-60’s in points. The third game was a complete misread, The razorbacks did not show up for this game and the Crimson Tide took full advantage from the first quarter and sailed to victory.
