    Rebels roll Tigers 45-21
    Trying to do something they have never done, the Rebels fought back to beat LSU, to complete the season sweep of Auburn, Alabama, and LSU, and in complete control of the SEC West hopes with a 5-1 conference record. The Tigers would jump out to a 21-10 lead with 50 seconds in the half. Ole Miss would answer, scoring the final 35 points in an announcement game to the SEC west that they have arrived. Bo Wallace was 26-34 337 yard 2 td, Scott added 182 yards on the ground for a season high, and freshman Laqoun Treadwell added 111 yard receiving on 7 catches. Also in the game fellow freshman Robert Nkemdiche broke the single season team sack record, with his 8th sack of the season. Ole Miss has Boise St next week in a tough out of conference.

    Tennessee 48 South Carolina 38
    South Carolina traveled to Knoxville to take on the Vols, hoping to keep their hopes of winning the SEC East alive. After winning the toss and deferring to the second half, the Gamecocks stuffed the Vols on three straight plays, holding them to -4 yards and would proceed to drive the field to go up 7-0. Things looked to be on track. Then the wheels fell off. The defense couldn't stop a thing, allowing the Vols to convert two 4th downs on the SAME DRIVE, as well as multiple 3rd down conversions. The last 1:15 of the half saw the Vols score 13 points to take a 27-17 lead into the locker room. The last 1:15 also saw Coach Eric Taylor launch his headset.

    The second half saw the Gamecocks pull within 3 on their first drive, but Tennessee would answer right back. Each time the Gamecocks tried to mount a drive of any sort, Tennessee would come up with some Superman of a play, with guys diving 50 yards across the field at any given moment. South Carolina's hopes of a division title were dashed at the end of this one, and brought with it questions of what is going on with the defensive side of the ball.


    Players of the Game for South Carolina:
    Offense: WR Shaq Roland - 11 catches for 202 yards and 1 TD
    Defense: Jadeveon Clowney - 5 tackles, 2 sacks

With the jackets defense finally in control they added to there lead mid third on a 25 yard field goal. end third 24-17. The jacket defense would continue to dominate shutting out the cougars in the second half. The jackets would score twice more to end the game. A td run from Goghigh and another field goal. The jackets now head home after improving to 3-4 and have two hugh recruiting weekends coming up hosting Virginia and Pittsburgh.

    Virginia Tech escapes an early deficit to defeat #6 Louisville in Blacksburg
    Virginia Tech found themselves in a deep hole early in the game as Louisville would jump out to a 21-0 lead to stun Hokie fans. The first Cardinal touchdown came via a 29 yard run by RB Dominique Brown who would rush for 148 yards on 23 attempts and one touchdown on the day. The second Cardinal touchdown came via a QB Teddy Bridgewater pass to WR DeVante Parker from 51 yards out as former 5* recruit Kendall Fuller was burned playing press coverage. The Hokies would finally get on the board with 6:19 left in the half with a one yard TD scamper by RB JC Coleman who would rush for 3 touchdowns on 25 carries and 145 yards in all. Coleman would go onto score the next touchdown, this time from 6 yards out. QB Logan Thomas would then connect with WR Kevin Asante from 22 yards out to bring the score even. Virginia Tech would head into the locker room up 28-24. There would only be one scoring play in the 3rd quarter which came on a QB Teddy Bridgewater pass to WR DeVante Parker from 19 yards out as the Cardinals took the lead 31-28. RB JC Coleman would start the 4th quarter out on a good note for the Hokies as he scampered in once again from 26 yards out to give the Hokies the lead. QB Teddy Bridgewater though lead a excellent drive for the Louisville Cardinals as they marched right down the field and scored via a pass to WR DeVante Parker from 13 yards out. Virginia Tech would also respond with a good drive down the field and ended up kicking a 45 yard FG to make the score 38-38 with just over a minute left. The Hokie defense had been killed all day by out patterns but with 0:40 left in the game, the Hokie defense intercepted QB Teddy Bridgewater for the third time to set Virginia Tech up for the winning field goal with 0:13 left.

    HOGS GET ROLLED BY TIDE
    After losing to South Carolina in a heart breaker last week, the Razorbacks took on the Alabama Crimson Tide. After a back and forth first quarter the Hogs led 7-3, but Alabama went off in the 2nd quarter scoring 23 points and holding Arkansas to zero points. Arkansas could not move the ball and Brandon Allen was a turnover machine. Allen finished the game with 6 Int even though he threw for 400 yards. Arkansas tried to set the tone up front early but quickly abandoned the run game and threw the ball for the rest of the game. Arkansas eventually got the ball moving in the second half. The second half Arkansas was able to put up points but the Tide offense led by AJ McCarron could not be stopped. Alabama racked up a total of 585 yards of offense while only turning the ball over once. Arkansas did have a couple bright spots, especially at the receiver position. Sophmore Mekale McKay shined as he caught 4 passes for 146 yards and Keante Minor also stepped up catching 2 TD passes.

    Overall, the turnovers Alabama was able to force, and their ability to pass the ball efficiently was the key factor. This is the second year in a row the Tide have managed score 50 plus points on the Razorbacks. Coach Chandler Hamilton of Arkansas said after the game, "It really is disappointing the way we played. Our defense couldn't get a stop, and we turned the ball over." He later went on to say, "I promise all the fans in Razorback Nation that this will never happen again. We will fight every game and we WILL not disappoint you. We WILL make a bowl game and please, don't get discouraged." Arkansas has a bye week next week to recuperate and to get things back on track. They stand at 4-4 and still have a very strong chance at making a bowl game.

    Clemson Hangs On in Death Valley
    After seeing the score at halftime, you'd think Clemson would blow the Seminoles out, but that was not the case. The scoring began with a Sammy Watkins 5 yard run off of the jet sweep. After a Jameis Winston interception, Clemson scored another touchdown when Tajh Boyd threw a strike to TE Sam Cooper. The Tiger defense was impressive in the first quarter as they didn't give up any points. Florida State answered back with a field goal of their own to start the second half, but the Tigers answered right back with another touchdown after Roderick McDowell punched it in from 2 yards out. After a Florida State 3 and out, Clemson marched right back down the field but only converted a field goal. As Florida State started their next drive with only 40 seconds left in the first half, QB Jameis Winston threw his second of four interceptions to CB Dante Stewart. Stewart returned the INT all the way to the 30 yard line, giving Clemson a chance for a field goal before halftime. However, kicker Catanzaro just missed it to the right, so Clemson went up 24-3 at halftime. Clemson's offense just couldn't get anything going throughout the second half as they failed to score any more points and went 3 and out many times. Florida State's offense was a different story. Despite being down 24-3 they remained calm during the second half and ran the ball down Clemson's throat. Jameis Winston threw his first TD of the day with 5 minutes to go in the third quarter cutting the deficit to two touchdowns. After scoring their second TD of the second half in the 4th quarter, the Seminoles forced another 3 and out and had the ball down only one possession. Soon after, Winston threw yet another interception to seal the win for Clemson 24-17. Good game Will Atkinson

    Virginia Tech pitches a shutout to remain perfect
    Virginia Tech got out to an early 21-0 lead by the end of the 1st quarter over the Duke Blue Devils. RB JC Coleman got things started after a 82 yard screen pass put the Hokies within Duke's 10 yard line where RB JC Coleman would put it in the next play from three yards out, his first of three on the day. The defense would be the next to get the scoring going as DT Luther Maddy would recover a fumble and return it from 45 yards out to take the lead 13-0 pending the PAT. With 0:11 seconds left in the 1st, QB Logan Thomas ran the ball in from four yards out which lead to a 21-0 lead early on. After the first quarter, it was cruise control for Virginia Tech. With just 0:05 seconds left in the half, RB JC Coleman would score his second TD of the day, this time from 2 yards out, to take a 28-0 lead into halftime. The Virginia Tech starters would only play one series in the second half where they marched down the field with the drive ending with RB JC Coleman scoring his third and final touchdown from 1 yard out. Virginia Tech would kick a FG with 0:48 seconds left in the game after milking the clock for the whole 4th quarter to win the game 38-0.
