College Football – the weekend that was

Didn’t get to see this weekend’s college football action? Here are four moments which summed up the crazy, unpredictable nature of college football…

With 1:06 on the clock, Central Florida were down 36-29 to Temple, only for that incredible catch from J.J. Worton. His one handed grab from Blake Bortles’ pass set the game up for a huge finish, with UCF kicker Sean Moffitt nailing a 24 yard field goal to hand the Knights an unlikely victory – but it all came from Worton’s catch.

‘The Deep South’s Oldest Rivalry’ added yet another unbelievable chapter on Saturday night. The Georgia Bulldogs were leading 38-37 with just 30 seconds to play, and with the Auburn Tigers on their own 27 yard line and facing a 4th down and 18, it seemed they had the game wrapped up…only for Auburn quarterback Nick Marshall to hurl the ball downfield, two Georgia defensive backs tipped the ball into the air, and into the grateful hands of receiver Ricardo Louis to seal a 43-38 win, despite Aaron Murray’s valiant comeback attempt late on.



Also a man on a whiteboard. With Florida State coasting to victory over Syracuse, their players got a little board – and seemingly a little bored – and decided to crack out a game of hangman on the sidelines. It appears even a member of the coaching staff got involved, with the Seminoles in cruise control in the 59-3 blowout, taking the team to 10-0 on the season.


That’s right folks. College Game Day is always a great watch, but this week, Lee Corso decided to try and have a sword fight to commemorate the game between the USC Trojans and Stanford Cardinals. How could this possibly go wrong? Well, blood was spilt. Literally.
