College Football 2019 – Week 5

Autumn has finally arrived, but the action on the field (and the sidelines) remains as hot as ever! Here are some of this week’s games.

The Atlantic Coast Conference has the Syracuse Orange 🍊 defending home against the Holy Cross Crusaders 🗡, the North Carolina Tar Heels 🦶 host the defending champion #1 Clemson Tigers 🐅, the N.C. State Wolfpack 🐺 face the Florida State Seminoles 🏹 on the road, the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets 🐝 are also on the road at the Temple Owls 🦉, and the #10 Notre Dame Fighting Irish ☘️ have a showdown with the #18 Virginia Cavaliers 🤺 in South Bend.

Big Ten action has the Rutgers Scarlet Knights 🏰 at the #20 Michigan Wolverines 🐾, the #8 Wisconsin Badgers 🦡 hosting the Northwestern Wildcats 😺, the Nebraska Cornhuskers 🌽 playing the visiting #5 Ohio State Buckeyes 🍂, and the Minnesota Golden Gophers 🐿 at the Purdue Boilermakers 🍺.

Down in the Southeastern Conference we have the #23 Texas A&M Aggies 🤠 at the Arkansas Razorbacks 🐗, the #7 Auburn Tigers 🐅 hosting the Mississippi State Bulldogs 🐶, the #2 Alabama Crimson Tide 🐘 at home against the Ole Miss Rebels 🤠, and the Kentucky Wildcats 😺 at the South Carolina Gamecocks 🐔.

The Big 12 has the TCU Horned Frogs 🐸 playing the visiting Kansas Jayhawks 🐦, the Oklahoma State Cowboys 🤠 in a homestand against the #24 Kansas State Wildcats 😺, and the #6 Oklahoma Sooners 👨🏻‍🌾 hosting the Texas Tech Red Raiders 🏴‍☠️.

The Pac-12 has plenty of West Coast action: Mike Leach and the Washington State Cougars 🐆 play the #19 Utah Utes 🏹 in Ogden, the #17 Washington Huskies 🐕 host the #21 USC Trojans 🛡, the UCLA Bruins 🐻 are on the road at the Arizona Wildcats 😺, and the Oregon State Beavers 🐿 face the Stanford Cardinal 🚩 at home in Corvallis.

Finally, a special comment about Saturday morning’s Texas Tech-Oklahoma game. This is a rebuilding year for the Red Raiders and they are 27-point underdogs to the Sooners. Nonetheless, I love it when this game comes around because it reminds me of the thrilling 2005 matchup between the two teams, which Tech won 23-21 on a walk-off touchdown:

Shortly thereafter, an inebriated Texas Tech fan began trolling a Fox Sports camera crew:

My prediction for today’s game: the Big 12 refs will try to rip us off, but we’ll win anyway. Goooooooooooooooo Raiderrrrrrrrrrrrrrrs! 🍺 🏴‍☠️

    Go Red Raiders!  Go Cougs!  As far as USC and UW goes… still wish they’d come up with a way both teams could lose WIN. [Admin10: Redaction] HAHAHA!  So Ratburger now wants all the kids to play without keeping score?  🙂

    There is a way for both teams to lose. It is called NCAA violations.

  5. When you only manage to win by 1 pt against a team that got beat by Appalachian State last week, do you really deserve to be ranked #1?

    Here’s another beer I miss from the NW:

    Rainier used to be available in 6 packs of 16 oz bottles that we referred to as “pounders”. My frat

    bro Hammer would trek to the corner store every Sunday morning for a breakfast of

    Rainier pounders and a box of Hostess powdered sugar donuts.

  12. Meager Beavers get a moral victory over Stanford. Down 21-0, they fight back to tie it at 28. Then in true Beav fashion they let the Furd run the kickoff back to the 50, give up a couple of big pass plays and the Tree’s kicker nails a chip shot to go home with the W.

    The Beavers seem perpetually snakebit.
