Moment of the Week: Nats win Games 1 & 2 in Houston of the World Series
The Nationals’ amazing journey continues, picking up incredible wins in Game 1 and 2 of the World Series to take a 2-0 lead. This Nationals squad is the true definition of a team that wants to have fun, work hard, and stay in the fight.
Led by brilliant pitching from Max Scherzer and Stephen Strasburg, the Nats controlled the pitching matchup, only allowing 7 runs as compared to the Astros 17. This Nats rotation has a future, if they can get Strasburg back.
This team is certainly incredible, and the journey has been amazing for me, and for DC Sports Fans. The Nationals are currently down 3-2, but with Strasburg set to pitch game five, anything is possible for this Nats team.
Take of the Week: Unranked Washington defeats 12th ranked Utah next Saturday
The Washington Huskies could be the best unranked team in the country. Led by ex-Georgia QB Jacob Eason, the Huskies lost tough games to California, Stanford, and Oregon. The Huskies now take on a Utah team many had high expectations for, and rightfully so. But, this Huskies team is gonna prove why they deserve to be ranked, even with three loses.
While I do love Utah, I never understood the hype around them, especially after a loss to USC earlier in the year. I think they lost to Washington next week in a major upset.
Vikings defeat Washington on TNF
Minnesota defeated Washington 19-9 on Thursday Night in what was a good defensive performance by both teams. Minnesota is looking like a fantastic team, sitting 6-2 with a matchup against Kansas City next week.
Washington has done pretty well defensively over the last couple of games, but it’s the offensive struggles that’s the biggest headline. Washington has not scored a single TD in the last two weeks, scoring zero points against San Francisco and nine points against Minnesota thanks to three field goals from the reliable Dustin Hopkins. Washington hopes to bounce back and score a TD next Sunday against the Jets.
Kansas State upsets No. 5 Oklahoma
Kansas State put on a show Saturday afternoon against one of the nation’s best teams: the Oklahoma Sooners. The Wildcats win, thanks to a great gameplan, and offensive performance.
Oklahoma takes their first loss of the season and now sits at 7-1 with a matchup against Iowa State next week. Jalen Hurts threw for 395 yards and a TD, but it wasn’t enough for the Sooners to win. With a tough Big 12 schedule coming up for the Sooners, their playoff hopes seem to be in jeopardy.
