college football recap: a ho-hum weekend

With no HUGE upsets this weekend, it was the same ol' game this weekend in college football (outside of Tennessee that is). Here's the super quick recap:

  • Is BYU seriously #8 in the country? When did that happen? Anyhoo, they killed Utah State, thereby extending the nation's longest current win streak to 15 games. Eh. Who would've guessed that BYU could be BCS bound?
  • Speaking of surprising teams, how about them Vanderbilt...ummm...Commodores? They squeaked past the Auburn Tigers 14-13 and remain undefeated so far this season. Could Vandy play the spoiler against Georgia and Florida? Let's hope so!
  • Ok, I want to know who were those imposter Trojans who lost to Oregon State last week! The real Trojans were back in true form on Saturday against the #23-ranked Oregon Ducks and we killed 'em, easily winning 44-10. The Trojan offense came alive in this game, amassing nearly 600 yards of offense led by Mark Sanchez and his 3 TDs. Sanchez was sacked at some point by some douchebag Duck and lay on the ground, writhing in pain for a while. The heart of the Trojan Nation literally skipped a beat, as we all sat there hoping Sanchez would be ok. Turns out he has a bruised bone in his knee and is listed as day-to-day. Mitch Mustain filled in at QB after the game had already been decided and went 5-for-8 with 1 TD and 1 interception.
  • The Virginia Tech Hokies hosted Western Kentucky and cruised to victory, 27-13, as expected. I was kinda surprised to see the Hokies give up 13 points. The Hokies would've ended with a respectable blow out score of 27-6 had the defense not given up a TD in the 4th quarter. No biggie, though. At least the Hokies still one. I was kinda bummed that backup quarterback Sean Glennon played some snaps, going 3-for-3 with 17 yards and no TDs, naturally.

Next up for the Hokies of Blacksburg is Boston College on (my birthday) October 18th. USC is hosting Arizona State next week.
