Week 5 in College Football season was a wild one. There were terrific games all across the county, huge upsets and classic matchups that will determine the fate of the College Football Playoff. Clemson outlasted the Louisville Cardinals in the ABC prime time contest. It was a game that did not disappoint. However the down marker on the final play of the game led to a controversial ending. Despite the win, Lamar Jackson outplayed Deshaun Watson and is now firmly in the driver seat for the Heisman Trophy.
The Michigan State and Stanford Conundrum
Michigan State and Stanford have been steady forces in the Top 10 over the last five years. Both teams play with a simple run first approach and try to win at the line of scrimmage. It is a formula that has worked extremely well. This weekend with Stanford’s drubbing from Washington and Michigan State’s overtime loss at Indiana, it fair to wonder were they go from here. I think Michigan State can recover, but it won’t be easy.
Coming Up this Week
Ohio State smacked Rutgers and now takes on Indiana. It will be a much tougher game than it’s been in the past, but it isn’t a game that should be in jeopardy. Its one of the many great games in the College Football lineup, LSU has their last stand at Florida. Can Tennessee keep their momentum rolling against the Aggies? The best the SEC matchup will be the Razorbacks welcoming the Crimson Tide to Fayetteville. It is going to be a nice weekend.
