College football is just the gift that keeps on giving, and week 4 was no exception. What we loved:
USC v. Utah - The week started off with a barnburner between the Trojans and the Utes. A blackout game in Salt Lake, the upset was brewing for USC who led almost the entire way. Unfortunately for Trojans fans, the Utes drew up a perfect game winning touchdown drive in the final minutes scoring on a fantastic catch by receiver Tim Patrick. We love close games and games where teams fight back to win.
Stanford v. UCLA - If you just looked at the score, this game played out about how people expected. Stanford won by 9 points. If you watched this game, you saw a much different story. UCLA led the entire way. They outplayed Stanford and even bottled up Christian McCaffrey. But, when it counted, Stanford went down the field and scored. Down 16-13 UCLA made a last ditch effort to take back the lead, but Rosen was sacked and stripped on the final play, with Stanford recovering and running the fumble back for a score. It was a terrible two minutes for Vegas, but we loved every second of it.
Tennessee v. Florida - The home of College Gameday for the weekend, this game was critical in the SEC East. Florida jumped on the Vols early, but Josh Dobbs and company went on a tear and took the game over for the W in the second half. We loved seeing the resiliency of a young team to claim a key victory.
Colorado v. Oregon - A decade of disappointment? Check. Backup QB? Check. Underdog in one of the toughest environments in college football? Check. Not exactly the recipe for a programs biggest road win in years, just don't tell the Buffs. CU took our the Ducks in Eugene. Congrats to Coach Mac and the CU football program. We love the Ducks too, but loved seeing CU officially put themselves back on the right track.
