It's hard to believe another college football week has come to a close! It's officially fall and football is in full bloom!
Like always, some teams have blown-out their opponents, other games have held close scores. Some teams have had extravagant plays, while other failed to impress. Regardless, there were some big winners and big losers in Week 5, and we've compiled a list for you!
So let's start with the Week 5 scores and then dive into the winners and losers of college football last week!

Week 5 Winners and Losers
In Week 5, there were several teams talked about in a big way - some for good reasons and others, well, not so much. For starters, UCLA finally showed up to prove they can compete, Arkansas fell short to Texas A&M in overtime, Clemson's not giving up and they've got the quarterback to prove it, FSU made a big comeback, and things are looking bleak for Michigan. Let's delve into some of these performances, shall we?
Winner: UCLA Blows-Out Arizona State, 62-27
It took a while for the Bruins to build momentum this season, but the team is finally coming together. UCLA appeared in a big way to blow-out Arizona in all departments - offense, defense and special teams. The Bruins' QB Brett Hundley secured 355 yards passing with four touchdowns and defensive back Ishmael Adams scored two TDs.
Arizona fought to keep up with UCLA's offensive plays, but the defensive problems discussed in the preseason made an appearance. Plus, the Sun Devils were missing QB Taylor Kelly (injured). If UCLA can keep performing like this, preseason predictions could come true with them being a large contender in the
College Football Playoff.
Loser: Arkansas Falls Short in OT to Texas A&M, 35-28
Arkansas came to play against Texas A&M and play they did... for the first three quarters. Things began to fall apart for the Hogs when Texas A&M's QB Kenny Hill found receiver Edward Pope for an 86-yard TD. Shortly after, A&M capitalized on a missed field goal by Arkansas and spanned 73 yards for a TD in a matter of two plays.
Once in OT, the Aggies scored to get ahead and managed to stop Arkansas on the fourth down to secure the win. Arkansas has definitely improved from last season, but this was a definitely a confidence blow - the Hogs have to learn to play all four quarters.
Winner: Clemson Returns to Defeat North Carolina, 50-35
After Clemson's hard loss to FSU last week and the loss of their starting QB, it was a worry on whether or not the Tigers could return to the board. Well, freshman QB Deshaun Watson has proved he can carry Clemson and they're not giving up easy. His first college start on Saturday against UNC awarded him 435 yards and six TDs, a school record, and only one interception!
It should be noted the Tarheels haven't been impressive defensively this year, but Watson is also a real threat when it comes to rushing. With the right training and this confidence booster under his belt, he could really move Clemson forward.
Winner (And Loser?): FSU Comes Back Against North Carolina State, 56-41
Seminoles fans had a right to be worried in their match against NC State. The Wolfpack secured an early lead, 24-7, and held FSU for a while. Finally, the 2014 champions seemed to find their groove and began to run the ball. RB Karlos Williams had 126 yards on the ground and three TDs!
To be honest, the comeback was impressive, but FSU still isn't all there. The dramatic occurences in weeks past have made a mark on the team, although not on the score board as of yet, and it will be interesting to see how they do in the weeks to come.
Loser: Michigan Didn't Show Up Against Minnesota, 30-14
A fair question that seems to be circulating the college football community is "where is Michigan?" In games prior to Week 5, it became obvious Michigan was dealing with a QB problem. Now, it's appearing as if it's the entire offense. This is the first time in 135 years of Michigan football that the Wolverines have lost three times before October even hits!
It will be interesting to see if the team can revive themselves in the coming weeks, but the
College Football Playoff might be a stretch at this point.

Are you a die-hard fan? Will we see YOU at the 2015 College Football Playoff National Championship?
Fact: the Super Bowl is the biggest game of the year. This isn't new information.
Fact: most football fans dream of attending at least one Super Bowl in their lifetime. That one probably doesn't shock you either.
So what are we getting at here? Well, when you have an incredibly large number of NFL fans all seeking out tickets to the biggest game of the year, there's an element that appears. Scarcity.
When the date of the Super Bowl hits the calendar, the NFL season begins and fans learn that Super Bowl tickets are becoming available, the craziness begins. Fans jump at the first possibility of tickets and turn to the first reseller or team waiting list they see to try their hand at getting access... without doing their research.
Do these fans get tickets? Maybe. Are they overpriced? It's possible. Are they authentic? Perhaps.
BUT, you're not going to be one of those fans are you? You're not going to make the three biggest mistakes fans make when booking Super Bowl tickets, right? Of course you aren't! That's why you're reading this article!
Let's just jump right into the meat and potatoes, shall we? Take a look at the three biggest mistakes fans make when booking Super Bowl tickets and learn how YOU can avoid them!
1. Booking Through the Secondary Market
Booking Super Bowl tickets through the secondary market seemed like a great place to start considering the scenario we just laid out. But really though - think about the process that unfolds. You want to buy tickets to Super Bowl XLIX, you know they're going to go quickly, so you open your search engine of choice, find the first company you can purchase them from and make the call.
You thought you had your tickets in the bag, but let's talk about what you actually just bought. A promise.
The secondary market is waiting for Super Bowl tickets just as you are. You just purchased a promise from a reseller, and now they have to go out and attempt to find a ticket for you and your group. The bigger the group, the harder that promise is to fulfill.
Now that your gears are turning, that doesn't sound like a great move towards making your Super Bowl dreams come true, does it?
The Alternative: The best way to nix the secondary market is to book through the Official Source! If you're booking your Super Bowl tickets directly from the NFL, you don't have to worry about the possibility of your tickets not being valid or not getting them by game day. Plus, since you're booking directly from the source, easy payment options are possible so you don't have to pay the hefty fee associated with a Super Bowl ticket all up front.
2. Purchasing a 'Ticket'
Now before you click away thinking "how in the world could this one be a mistake," hear me out. When you purchase just a 'ticket' to the Super Bowl, you also have to purchase transportation or rent a car, you have to pay for hotel accommodations, you have to purchase concessions inside the stadium, and if you want to tailgate, you have to purchase the goods for that.
Do you see the dollar signs adding up? Because we do.
The Alternative: Instead of purchasing a 'ticket,' purchase a 'ticket package!' A ticket package includes all of add-ons and inclusions that you could want at Super Bowl XLIX into one bundle. This means you have one cost and you're not paying a marked up price for each of these items. Not to mention, packages include access to an exclusive NFL hospitality tailgate party!
This means you can tailgate three hours pregame with the NFL while enjoying open or cash bars, complimentary fare, interactive entertainment options, player and cheerleader meet-and-greets, and much more! Depending on the package, some hospitality areas are also open during halftime and one hour postgame.
Additionally, if you select a high level package, you could even get access to the field after the game! Just imagine! Walking on the field the Super Bowl champions just played on!
3. Waiting Until the Last Minute
We touched on this earlier, but Super Bowl tickets go quickly! They're a hot commodity and everyone wants to attend the biggest game of the year! The 2015 Super Bowl is still a ways a way, but the best seats and the best access are going to be the first to go. With that being said, don't make this mistake! Booking early is key.
So How Can You Avoid All These Mistakes?
QUINTEVENTS 2015 OFFICIAL SUPER BOWL TICKET PACKAGES!
QuintEvents is Official Partners with NFL On Location so you're guaranteed 100 percent ticket validity to some of the best seats in the stadium with VIP hospitality access!

Dolphins Defeat Raiders, 38-14
Despite a quick score on the opening drive in the beginning of the first NFL International Series game of the season, the Oakland Raiders could not keep up with the offensive plays of the Miami Dolphins at Wembley Stadium on Sunday.
Dolphins quarterback, Ryan Tannehill, showed dramatic improvement from his last performances and paved the way for a Miami victory, bringing the teams 2014 record to 2-2. Oakland's defense was depeleted and allowed for plenty of short passes providing big gains for the Dolphins offense. Tannehill completed 23 passes for 278 yards and two touchdowns, which included a 13-yard TD pass to Mike Wallace and a 18-yard pass to Dion Sims.
Cortland Finnegan ran a fumble back 50 yards for a TD and Lamar Miller rushed for two more TDs, but Tannehill certainly deserved the game MVP.
The London victory was definitely needed after the Dolphins' two consecutive losses prior and the team is in good spirits heading back to US soil for their bye week.
The Raiders, on the other hand, had issues and injuries all over the field. Their defensive line suffered with inactive linebackers Sio Moore and Nick Roach sidelined, and Kaluka Maiava, who replaced Moore, was injured on the Dolphins first advance. To make matters worse, starting QB Derek Carr was taken down in the third quarter and had to be replaced by red shirt, Matt McGloin!
This marked 10 straight losses for Oakland, including the last several games last season, and the pressure is on for the team to perform after their bye week.
What did you think of the match? Do you think Oakland will see improvements in the next couple weeks? Do you think the Dolphins can keep a winning streak going? Share your thoughts with us in the comments below!
Next on the Schedule in London!
The Oakland Raiders vs Miami Dolphins London match-up might be in history books, but the
2014 NFL International Series is only just beginning! Four more teams are lined-up to take the stage at Wembley Stadium and these games are sure to be dramatic!
Take a look at the upcoming games on the schedule:
The best part about these upcoming matches is that YOU can be there LIVE! With Official Ticket Packages direct from NFL On Location and QuintEvents, you can get VIP access to the 2014 NFL International Series in London.
Packages include tickets to coveted seats in the stadium complete with exclusive access to the NFL hospitality tailgate party three hours pregame where you'll find complimentary fare, open beer, wine and soft drink selections, interactive entertainment elements, and much more.

Will we see YOU at Wembley?
When you think of attending the 2015 Masters® of course your first thought is that you want to attend the tournament rounds. Not surprising. Those are the rounds that count. Those are the rounds where winners are announced. That's where the 2015 Masters® Champion
will be named.
With so much focus on the tournament rounds, the practice rounds are often overlooked. BUT, by overlooking the practice rounds, people often overlook the biggest fan opportunities the Masters® offers.
Now that we've piqued your curiousity, take a look at these four reasons why you should not overlook the 2015 Masters® practice rounds!
1. Document Your Trip to Augusta National
It's a pretty well-known fact that pictures and videos are not allowed to be taken during the tournament rounds of the Masters®. Fans in attendance have to rely soley on their memory to remember the beauty of Augusta National and the sight of some of their favorite golfers competing.
The rules at Augusta National are so strict, in fact, that cell phones, cameras and video cameras are not even permitted in the course on
With that being said, pictures and videos are allowed to be taken during the practice rounds! If you get access to one or more of the practice rounds, you can bring in your camera and snap as many pictures or videos as you like of the breath-taking course, the golfers competing, and you and your group at the event!
Finally, you can PROVE you were at the Masters! Document your memories at the
2015 Masters® and share your experience as it happens with everyone. Can you say bragging rights for life?
2. Make it a Family Affair
While the tournament rounds are strict, quiet and allow no interaction with the golfers competing, the practice rounds are the opposite. Practice days are more laid back, and you can even ask golfers for autographs and pictures. Plus, being completely quiet is not as big of a deal.
So if you're planning on bringing young ones who have trouble staying quiet or if you want to meet the players, the practice rounds are the best
fit for you.
3. What Crowds?
If you've ever watched the Masters® on TV, you've seen the enormous crowds that congregate at the holes on tournament days. Augusta National becomes packed with golf fans and that makes it very difficult to get a great view of what's taking place at each hole.
On the other hand, practice rounds, especially Monday, are much less crowded. This makes it much easier to maneuver the course, see your favorite golfers compete and take in the strategy that is involved at each hole. It's a completely different way to experience the Masters®.
4. It's Easier on Your Wallet
Because the Masters® is such a high-profile sporting event, badges and packages are not cheap, with tournament rounds being the most expensive.
Well, practice rounds are much less painful on your wallet. Packages to the practice round start at just $669 and include easy payment terms! This means you don't have to pay for the entire package up front; you can space out the payments across several months.
And with a practice round package, you'll receive the same VIP access as you would with a tournament round, but you'll be able to reap the benefits mentioned above that come with a practice round.
Get Access to 2015 Masters® Practice Rounds
With QuintEvents' ticket packages to the 2015 Masters® practice rounds, you can get access to one day, or you can opt to stay and play with access to several days! Hole In One packages include exclusive access to the Magnolia Manor hospitality area, located only a short distance from the entrance to Augusta National.
Here, you'll be invited to enjoy complimentary breakfast and lunch buffets, premium bars and a cocktail hour. This eliminates you having to purchase concessions inside the couse and it gives you a place to unwind out of the Georgia weather.
Magnolia Manor also offers a secure check station where you leave any items you don't want to bring into the course with you.
Hotel accommodations can be included in any package along with transportation to and from Augusta National. Clearly Masters® practice round package options are the way to go!

It's that time of the week again - time to plan your starting line-up for Week 4 of Fantasy Football! And let's face it, planning your starting line-up is no easy feat. We all have some seasoned players on our roster who we start week after week just to have them fall short of expectations while the rookie on our bench is securing all our points. Sigh.
So what do you do when it comes time to set your roster? You hit the interwebs! There's no way you're going to pass up on the opportunity to put your FF team's best foot forward and you need to do your homework (you want to be the one smack talking in your league, right?).
But instead of you having to click around through 10 different sites to check out the stats trying to decide whether you should start Tom Brady or Jay Cutler (my weekly dilemma), we've compiled the information for you!
So without further ado, we give you Fantasy Football Week 4: Start 'Em, Sit 'Em! We did your research and these are the players we believe should be playing the field and playing the bench.
Jay Cutler, Chicago Bears
With 58 FF points only three weeks into the season, Jay Cutler needs to be on your starting roster. His points list him fourth among QBs and most impressive, he's thrown eight TDs and a measely two interceptions. Also, having Alshon Jeffrey, Matt Forte, Brandon Marshall, and Martellus Bennett as wide-outs on the Bears roster helps his case.
This week, Chicago is up against Green Bay, who's defense gave up 17 fantasy points last week. If Cutler keeps his performance level high, this should be a great week to rack up some points!
Kelvin Benjamin, Carolina Panthers
Kelvin Benjamin has found himself ranked sixth in the wide receiver rankings with 36 FF points in the first three weeks! This week, this rookie is up against the Ravens defense, who have given up 23 FF points to receivers each week.
With that being said, Benjamin had been on the receiving end of Derek Anderson for his TD receptions this year with Cam Newton out, but Newton returned and still found him seven times for 80 yards last week. If Benjamin is riding your bench right now, it's time to bump him up because he's going to have plenty of opportunities to produce points.
San Diego Chargers Defense
Okay, don't count our advice out just yet - hold on a minute. Yes, the Chargers might not have the most fabulous defense, but they are going up against Jacksonville this week. The Jaguars offense has not even been close to touching their projected points, coming up around 35 points below expectation in the past three weeks. This means they've only averaged about 12 points per game.
All of this adds up to good things for the Chargers defense. If you have them, start 'em!
Tony Romo, Dallas Cowboys
While things have been looking good for Dallas ultimately - more running and less pressure on Tony Romo - this has hurt the FF points the QB brings in. Comparatively, the Cowboys are third in the NFL for rushing yards with 156.7 yards per game, but they find themselves at 24th through the air with 206.7 yards per game. In addition, Dallas has run the ball 95 times compared to attempting 89 passes.
With this new strategy, Romo has only been bringing in about 15 FF points per game. And let's face it, 15 FF points a game from your QB isn't going to help you win your league. Turn this Cowboy out to the pasture.
Tom Brady, New England Patriots
I know I briefly touched on my own Brady woes earlier in this article, but this QB truly is a problem for a lot of fantasy teams so far this season! Brady hasn't even been close to touching his projected points in the first three weeks and his 12.5 FF points in Week 3 has been his peak so far.
The Patriots are a fairly run-heavy team on top of it all and Brady is just not contributing to fantasy teams the way he used to. It might be early to go as far as dropping him from your roster, but definitely make the move to sit him until we see where his playing goes.
Joique Bell, Detroit Lions
This call wasn't made based on Joique Bell's performance the last three weeks, but instead on who Detroit is playing. This week the Lions are up against the New York Jets. The Jets' defense has proven steady in holding off RBs the past few weeks and we don't see things looking any different come Week 4. Seriously though, New York is only giving up 5.3 FF points per week to RBs!
With that being said, Bell is going to take a serious hit in points this week so look to your red shirts to help out. Sit 'em!
What do you think of our start 'em, sit 'em advice this week? Do you have other players on your roster you would suggest fellow fantasy players bench this week? Share your insights with us in the comments below!
See the Top Players Battle it Out in Fantasy Football For Real!
Wouldn't it be a dream come true to see your fantasy team come to life? Could you just imagine seeing the top players on your roster competing against other NFL stars?
Well, that's exactly what the 2015 Pro Bowl is bringing you! With it's unconferenced format, the teams are up to a draft and any top contestants can end up together.
Not to mention, the 2015 Pro Bowl is being held in Glendale, AZ a week before Super Bowl XLIX is held at the same location, so not only is attending more possible than ever, but the week is already being set up to be EPIC!
Through NFL On Location and QuintEvents Official Ticket Packages, you can get VIP access to the 2015 Pro Bowl to see Fantasy Football pan out in real life! Packages offer exclusive amenities such as access to the NFL's Official Saturday Night Party, access to the Official NFL tailgate, an Official 2015 Pro Bowl Gift Bag, luxurious accommodations, ground transportation, and much more!

Booking tickets for the Breeders’ Cup can be a tad overwhelming – especially now the event is a little over a month away. When you look online for tickets, the amount of options that appear on your screen is endless and yet, they all seem to offer the same thing (so you think).
So how do you make your decision? You probably do what’s natural. Gravitate toward the secondary markets that you’ve heard mentioned before and purchase your tickets online. It was pretty quick, easy and painless process – what could be wrong, right?
You didn’t realize it then, but you just made a detrimental mistake when it came to purchasing tickets to the Breeders’ Cup; one that could unequivocally hurt your experience.
Now, before you get frustrated and think to yourself, “Man, you can't trust companies online anymore,” let us share with you the big three. That is, the three biggest mistakes people make when booking their tickets to the Breeders’ Cup. Then, you can go forth into the market place, secure your perfect experience at the 2014 Breeders’ Cup World Championships and have the time of your life!
1. Waiting until the Last Minute
It goes without saying that the best seats at any sporting event are always the ones to fill up first. This is especially true at a high-end, bucket list sporting event where a large population of the spectators in attendance will be A-list Hollywood stars. Therefore, waiting until the last minute to secure your seat could get you in your second or third choice locations in the stands.
And have you checked the calendar recently? The Breeders’ Cup kicks-off on Oct. 31, which is a little over a month away and you’re still searching for tickets. While the event is still far enough away that there will still be great seats available, the longer you wait to book your tickets, the less options you will have.
So don’t make mistake number one – start taking action soon!
2. Booking Through the Secondary Market
Let’s talk about the process of booking through the secondary market for a minute. You go online and find a company or a reseller. You decide what tickets and what access you want to receive. You slap down your plastic and shell out big bucks for a fantastic seat with great access at the
Breeders’ Cup, and you’re excited because you believe you got a really great deal!
BUT, let’s talk about what you really just bought.
You purchased a promise. That company that you’re dealing with didn’t have the tickets in their hand when you bought them. But now that you have, they’re going to go out and find them for you. This gives you a 50-50 shot that at the end of the day, you'll actually have the tickets you paid for.
It doesn’t sound like such a great deal now that you know the backstory, does it?
3. Purchasing a “Ticket”
I know, I know. You’re thinking how in the world could THIS be a MISTAKE?
Well, think about it. You’re going to a bucket list event; everyone wants to go to the Breeders’ Cup. All of Hollywood comes out, the top horses in the world are racing against each other and some of the top purses in the world are being awarded.
With that being said, purchasing a ticket means just that. You purchased your right to a seat in the stands – nothing included. You’ll have to purchase all your beverages, all your concessions, all your souvenirs, your parking, and anything else you might want or need over the weekend a la carte.
Do you see the dollar bill signs adding up? Because we sure do.
The Light at the End of the Tunnel
Now, before you think things look bleak, there is a light at the end of the tunnel! And that light is

You see them every year when you watch the Super Bowl. Those fans that are actually in the stadium in some of the best seats possible while the game is being played. You’ve seen the commercials for being in the Super Bowl “club” – attending the Super Bowl every year without ceasing. Yet, year after year you find yourself sitting at home on the couch with your chips and dip, or sitting in your local bar with friends drinking a cold brew, watching the game and wondering how that happens.
How do you become those people?
Are they season ticket holders of the teams playing? Do they have to attend a certain amount of games a season? Are they even fans of the team playing? Did they inherit those tickets? Are they just incredibly lucky? How does someone get tickets to the Super Bowl?
It’s simple really. Those people go find their Super Bowl tickets!
So where does one start? Well, the Official Source for Super Bowl tickets would probably be a good start! With QuintEvents Official Partnership with NFL On Location, you can rest assured that your 2015 Super Bowl tickets will be 100 percent valid because they’re coming from the source and not the secondary market.
Additionally, QuintEvents and NFL On Location offer Official Ticket Packages, meaning that what you’re getting access to at the biggest game of the year is far more than just entrance to the game and a seat in the nosebleeds. You are going to actually experience Super Bowl XLIX!
So what does that mean? Well, NFL fans, take a look at what your 2015 Super Bowl experience could entail:
Imagine Yourself at Super Bowl XLIX
It’s finally Super Bowl Sunday! Even though you arrived several days earlier and have been reaping the benefits of Super Bowl Boulevard in Arizona, the big game is finally here and you’ve been waiting. You wake up in the morning at your luxurious hotel in the Phoenix area, you get yourself ready, throw on your team’s jersey, and head down to the lobby with your group.
Before leaving the hotel, you and your group make sure you have your Preferred NFL On Location stadium parking pass in tow – this will allow you to park in a dedicated area close to your entrance.
Upon arrival through NFL On Location’s dedicated security entrance, you make your way to your official NFL pregame hospitality tailgate party! Open three hours pregame, you and your friends nosh on the complimentary premium menu and take your pick of the selections at the top-shelf open bar. There’s also games and interactive entertainment elements everywhere you look.
Then suddenly, you realize other fans in hospitality are beginning to gather in one area of the venue. As you walk over to see what the fuss is about, you realize NFL players and cheerleaders have arrived in hospitality to tailgate the Super Bowl and meet YOU! Talk about VIP status right there!
Shortly before hospitality ends and it’s time to head to your seat in the stadium, you decide to head to one of the many merchandise stores to use your $50 merchandise coupon (depending on package) to grab some Super Bowl XLIX swag. As you’re walking out of hospitality you double-check to make sure your Official Super Bowl ticket is still hanging around your neck in your Super Bowl XLIX lanyard – after all, wouldn’t it be the worst if you lost it or misplaced it?
Finally, you hear the announcement. The National Anthem is coming. You and your group head to your seats and cheer like crazy with the fans all around you! It’s game time! Super Bowl XLIX is upon you! You’re watching LIVE from inside the stadium and it couldn’t get any better than this!
The Next Step
You’re sold right? After all, who wouldn’t want that unbelievable access at Super Bowl 2015! That’s the kind of experience any NFL fan dreams of!
So it’s time to take the next step in securing your spot at Super Bowl XLIX: FIND YOUR SEAT!

It's time, folks! Week 4 of the 2014 NFL season is upon us and the league is heading overseas for the first international game of the year! With a record three games at Wembley Stadium on the schedule this year, the Oakland Raiders and
Miami Dolphins are prepared to kick-off the 2014 NFL International Series!
As if you aren't already pumped for this London match-up, let's take a look at what each team is bringing to the table to build up the hype even more!
What the Raiders Bring to the Table
The Raiders are entering Wembley without a win yet this season, already having faced the New York Jets, the Houston Texans and the New England Patriots. In other words, the strength of their schedule so far has been high.
When it comes to meeting the Dolphins, Oakland leads the series, 16-15-1. The Raiders are looking to capitalize in their match against Miami and bring their first win of the 2014 NFL season back to Oakland with them.
The Raiders have some rookies that are ready to shine, and this game against the Dolphins might just be their time to breakout!
What the Dolphins Bring to the Table
Miami started the 2014 NFL season with a win against the New England Patriots, but lost momentum in Weeks 2-3 with losses to the Buffalo Bills and the Kansas City Chiefs.
The Dolphins are heading to London to meet the Raiders having won their most recent meeting at Sun Life Stadium 35-13. In fact, in the last 16 games played between the two teams, Miami has won 13 of them and despite the Raiders being hungry for a win, and the Dolphins are going to work to continue this streak.
The team's offensive line is basically all new and this week is going to show whether they can progress past the kinks.

Week 4 is complete and in the college football history books! Based on the scores from this week, it's our guess that while some of you are ecstatic, others of you are downright disappointed. However, no team is down for the count yet! Pick up those heads!
Regardless of your take on Week 4, it's time to recap the results, take a look at some of the shockers, see the big wins, and the disappointing losses. Hold on to your hats, college football fans, this weekly recap is shaping into being a bumpy ride!
Week 4 Results
Scores pulled from ESPN.com
Were you elated by your team's performance this week or were you disappointed? What do you think of the scores? Share your opinions with us in the comments below!
Let's talk about the big happenings of Week 4! For starters, Alabama surely made a statement with their victory, Arizona left fans speechless with their Hail Mary and FSU took it to Clemson with a victory in overtime! And we can't leave out Mississippi State and East Carolina! Let's touch on some of these spectacles.
If college football fans were thinking Alabama wouldn't make their presence known this year, that thought is gone. QB Blake Sims came into Saturday's game strong and didn't let up the pace. He threw for 445 yards and four touchdowns, and allowed one interception off of a tipped ball. His fumble later in the game caught him some criticism from Saban, but overall, Alabama is going to keep a great pace under this leading senior.
Arizona was down 31-13 to the Bears at the end of the third quarter, but the Wildcats rallied and outscored the Bears 36-14 in the fourth. Even though this was an incredible comeback, it was the last second Hail Mary that blew minds and won the game. See the Hail Mary play:
When it comes to the Florida State vs Clemson match-up, where do we even begin? The reigning champions entered the game with some team issues and the problems showed on the field. Clemson held FSU to a close score all the way into overtime and somehow the Seminoles managed to come out on top. Regardless of how pretty is was, the 2014 champs now hold a 19 game winning streak heading into Week 5 and that's a big deal.
Mississippi State's victory over LSU was huge for several reasons. The Bulldogs had not defeated LSU since 1999, and head coach Dan Mullen had never defeated them. Additionally, the average margin of defeat was 20 points. Well, Mississippi State found victory in Death Valley at night and QB Dan Prescott relentlessly ran attack for 302 yards. It was a big day for the Bulldogs!
There is no denying that ECU did damage to UNC's big name rep this week. East Carolina pulled 789 yards of offense on 97 plays and won 70-41 over North Carolina. To make the victory even sweeter, it's not like the Pirates just ran or threw to victory - they did it all! ECU completely stomped on the Tarheels and it's high time college football fans keep a hard eye on these boys.
