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 weekโ€™s games.

The Atlantic Coast Conference has the Syracuse Orange ๐ŸŠ defending home against the Holy Cross Crusaders ๐Ÿ—ก, the North Carolina Tar Heels ๐Ÿฆถ host the defending champion #1 Clemson Tigers ๐Ÿ…, the N.C. State Wolfpack ๐Ÿบ face the Florida State Seminoles ๐Ÿน on the road, the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets ๐Ÿ are also on the road at the Temple Owls ๐Ÿฆ‰, and the #10 Notre Dame Fighting Irish โ˜˜๏ธ have a showdown with the #18 Virginia Cavaliers ๐Ÿคบ in South Bend.

Big Ten action has the Rutgers Scarlet Knights ๐Ÿฐ at the #20 Michigan Wolverines ๐Ÿพ, the #8 Wisconsin Badgers ๐Ÿฆก hosting the Northwestern Wildcats ๐Ÿ˜บ, the Nebraska Cornhuskers ๐ŸŒฝ playing the visiting #5 Ohio State Buckeyes ๐Ÿ‚, and the Minnesota Golden Gophers ๐Ÿฟ at the Purdue Boilermakers ๐Ÿบ.

Down in the Southeastern Conference we have the #23 Texas A&M Aggies ๐Ÿค  at the Arkansas Razorbacks ๐Ÿ—, the #7 Auburn Tigers ๐Ÿ… hosting the Mississippi State Bulldogs ๐Ÿถ, the #2 Alabama Crimson Tide ๐Ÿ˜ at home against the Ole Miss Rebels ๐Ÿค , and the Kentucky Wildcats ๐Ÿ˜บ at the South Carolina Gamecocks ๐Ÿ”.

The Big 12 has the TCU Horned Frogs ๐Ÿธ playing the visiting Kansas Jayhawks ๐Ÿฆ, the Oklahoma State Cowboys ๐Ÿค  in a homestand against the #24 Kansas State Wildcats ๐Ÿ˜บ, and the #6 Oklahoma Sooners ๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿปโ€๐ŸŒพ hosting the Texas Tech Red Raiders ๐Ÿดโ€โ˜ ๏ธ.

The Pac-12 has plenty of West Coast action: Mike Leach and the Washington State Cougars ๐Ÿ† play the #19 Utah Utes ๐Ÿน in Ogden, the #17 Washington Huskies ๐Ÿ• host the #21 USC Trojans ๐Ÿ›ก, the UCLA Bruins ๐Ÿป are on the road at the Arizona Wildcats ๐Ÿ˜บ, and the Oregon State Beavers ๐Ÿฟ face the Stanford Cardinal ๐Ÿšฉ at home in Corvallis.

Finally, a special comment about Saturday morningโ€™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 todayโ€™s game: the Big 12 refs will try to rip us off, but weโ€™ll win anyway. Goooooooooooooooo Raiderrrrrrrrrrrrrrrs! ๐Ÿบ ๐Ÿดโ€โ˜ ๏ธ
