Scenes 11.11: LSU Plays the “Game of the Decade”

Scene of the Week: LSU Defeats Alabama in the “Game of the Decade”

The LSU Tigers defeated the Alabama Crimson 46-41 in a clash of SEC giants. LSU was up 33-13 at halftime, but 28 second-half points helped Alabama close the margin — though it was not enough in the end. Joe Burrow threw for 393 yards and three TDs, and he looks like the front-runner for the Heisman Trophy after this outstanding performance. 

Alabama falls to number four on the AP Top 25, while LSU moves up to number one. LSU does not play a ranked opponent for the rest of the season, so a playoff berth for these Tigers seems very likely. Alabama still has 13th ranked Auburn for the last game of the season and might not get a chance at the SEC Championship if LSU continues winning.

College Football is amazing.

Take of the Week: Washington Defeats the Jets Next Week

Predicting a Washington win is something I never usually say. But I think next week against an injured Jets squad could be a fair chance for this Washington team to pick up its second win of the season.

The Jets defeated the Giants this past Sunday 34-27 in the battle for New York. Someone this Washington team needs to watch out for is Le’Veon Bell who had 18 carries for 34 yards and a touchdown. Sam Darnold threw for 230 yards and a score but could go off for 500 yards against Washington which has an awful defense and an even worse defensive coordinator!

Anyways, The Burgundy and Gold have been playing a lot better under Bill Callahan than their former head coach, Jay Gruden. A huge part of this has to do with offensive coordinator Kevin O’Connell, a promising thinker who should be a candidate for the head coaching job next year.

Washington just might defeat the Jets next week at FedEx!

No. 17 Minnesota defeats No. 4 Penn State to Shake up the Rankings

This past Saturday, the Minnesota Gophers dealt the Penn State Nittany Lions their first loss of the season in a massive upset. Minnesota really rocked the boat showing the CFP Committee that they got it wrong putting the Gophers at No. 17.

It was a tough loss for Penn State who now has to travel to Columbus, Ohio to take on one of the best teams in the nation — Ohio State. Penn State needs a win next week to keep any playoff chances alive but will be hard pressed to do so against the number two team in the nation.
