Harrisburg, Pa.
Oregon v Washington State might be good. I'm a bit intrigued by Maryland v Iowa. The rest? Oof.

Bama 42 at halftime, at Tenn

With all the usual caveats about 1 game being a crapshoot ...

Purdue up big on Ohio puts BC's loss to Purdue in perspective.
Not sure I'd call 15 points with over a quarter left "big" in today's game, but your point stands.

That said, I refuse to believe that Urban and OSU are dead and gone until they are actually dead and gone. Purdue really, really needs another score before they can be comfortable. Ohio State always finds a way.

Not tonight. Purdue playing to win instead of rolling over.

Don't think I've ever seen an OSU defense get gashed like this over and over again. Amazing stuff. So happy right now.

I know it's not P5 football, but the end of the ODU-WUKU game yesterday was bonkers. ODU has won just 1 game all season, against Virginia Tech.

Yesterday they score with like 10 seconds left to tie game at 34-34, then:

WKU: run to set up Hail Mary with 2 seconds left.
WKU: Hail Mary incomplete, but ODU called for roughing passer, WKU gets 1 untimed down.
WKU: misses 57 yard FG, but ODU is called for offsides, WKU gets 5 yards, and another untimed down.
WKU: misses 52 yard FG, ODU returns it to WKU 14, WKU called for face mask, ODU gets 1 untimed down.
ODU: 23 yard FG to win on the 3rd untimed down.
