Georgia and Alabama Players Have to Be Separated by Referees Before Game

When Alabama took the field in Georgia on Saturday, the Bulldogs were waiting.

Some barking ensued, but there was no legitimate fighting. Referees had to separate the two sides.

The Dawgs then moved to midfield and appeared to continue going at the Crimson Tide: 

Bad blood in a showdown between two top-15 teams? This should be fun.

Iowa State’s Austin Fischer defines what placeholding is all about.

Earlier in the season, Fischer went nuts after a converted extra point and fist-pumped like that kick determined the outcome of the season:

On Saturday, he was at it again.

Texas Tech vs. Baylor: Live Score and Highlights

Texas Tech vs. No. 5 Baylor


Time: 3:30 p.m. ET

The Baylor Bears, primed for a run at the playoffs after cruising through their non-conference slate, now face a tough test as they play the Texas Tech Red Raiders, who nearly nipped TCU at home a week ago. 

The Big 12 is thought to be a race between the Horned Frogs and Bears, but the Red Raiders have looked impressive enough in this young season that they could very well play the role of spoilers. 

This game is sure to be as fast-paced as it gets with both Art Briles and Kliff Kingsbury on the sidelines, so gear up for the ride.

TCU Wide Receiver Josh Doctson Makes Leaping Grab over Texas Defender for TD

Was Randy Moss suiting up for TCU on Saturday?

Nope, just wide receiver Josh Doctson.

In the first quarter against Texas, Trevone Boykin lobbed a ball to the back of the end zone for Doctson. The senior out-leaped the defender to make the play and got his feet in bounds.

All he needed was a fake-moon celebration, and Doctson would've totally had the whole Moss thing down.

It was a historic play for both the QB and WR:

Boykin would later toss another, breaking Andy Dalton's record:

Texas vs. TCU: Live Score and Highlights

Looking to avenge last season's humiliating loss, the 1-3 Texas Longhorns travel to No. 4 TCU to take on the Horned Frogs.

Gary Patterson's squad barely survived a trip to Lubbock last weekend, outlasting Texas Tech by a 55-52 score. Quarterback Trevone Boykin led the way, but it was receiver Josh Doctson who broke out with 267 yards and three touchdowns.

The Longhorns will have their hands full with Doctson, and really the entire Horned Frogs team. Led by quarterback Jerrod Heard, the Horns will trot out as many as eight freshmen starters on Saturday as they try to snap a two-game losing streak.

West Virginia vs. Oklahoma: Live Score and Highlights

In a battle of two of the Big 12 undefeated, Oklahoma (3-0, 0-0 Big 12) is hosting West Virginia in a conference-opener that promises to create national ripples within the college football landscape.

The Mountaineers, a week removed from a 45-6 rout of Big Ten member Maryland, enter the game with hopes of defeating the Sooners for the first time since joining the Big 12 three seasons ago in 2012. 

In order to do so, however, West Virginia (3-0, 0-0 Big 12) will need its stifling defense to provide answers early against Sooners QB Baker Mayfield. Through just three games, Mayfield ranks third in the FBS in offense per game (400.3 yards per game), fourth in touchdown passes per game (3.33 per game) and seventh in passing yards per game (354 per game). 

Further, the Mountaineers will be attempting to circumnavigate history's usual route, as Oklahoma has been near-perfect in conference home openers under head coach Bob Stoops, putting up a 14-2 record during that stretch. 

Unlike years past, though, the story for West Virginia entering the contest will be its stout defense, which has turned heads behind its nationally leading plus-3.3 turnover margin and nine interceptions. Unsurprisingly, the Mountaineers offense has been rolling under head coach Dana Holgorsen, but the opportunistic defense has served as a welcome change of pace thus far. 

Stay tuned for breaking news, commentary and analysis as the noon ET game time approaches.

Michigan vs. Maryland: Live Score and Highlights

The Michigan Wolverines will attempt to notch their first road victory of the season when they battle the Maryland Terrapins at Byrd Stadium in College Park on Saturday.

Head coach Jim Harbaugh has started the rehabilitation part of the job admirably, winning three straight games—but each one was at home. Nevertheless, the Wolverines (3-1) have outscored opponents 91-7 over the last 11 quarters.

Maryland (2-2) needs to bounce back from a throttling at the hands of West Virginia, which blasted the Terrapins 45-6 last weekend. Quarterback Caleb Rowe threw four interceptions in the loss.

According to Odds Shark, Michigan is a 14.5-point favorite. Kickoff is scheduled for noon ET and will be broadcast on the Big Ten Network. Bleacher Report will provide scoring updates and analysis throughout the conference matchup.

Penn State vs. Army Live Blog: Instant Reactions and Analysis

It seems Penn State (3-1) will have one less head in the Army West Point's (1-3) three-option offensive monster to worry about when the two kickoff at 12:00 pm ET. The Black Knights' quarterback Ahmad Bradshaw is questionable for this contest, according to

This means that the Nittany Lions, entering with a three-game winning streak, may give fans at sold-out Beaver Stadium a lot to cheer about.

Army by contrast, crawling in off the back of three consecutive losses, should see a significant number of challenges, beginning most notably with Penn State's aggressive defensive front, currently leading the nation with 18 sacks, per's John Tuscano

So, is this one a waste of your time? Absolutely not.

NFL fans in particular should keep a curious eye on Lions quarterback Christian Hackenberg, the touted (and albeit falling) young prospect. His recent struggles have nullified early speculation that he should be considered for No. 1 pick candidacy, but at home against the wounded Black Knights, Hackenberg may finally regain some of his previous form.

What say you? Knights or Lions?

South Carolina vs. Missouri: Live Score and Highlights

Missouri and South Carolina will battle for each team’s first SEC victory of 2015 when the Gamecocks enter Faurot Field in Columbia, Missouri, Saturday at noon on the SEC Network. 

The Tigers suffered their first loss of the season after falling 21-13 at Kentucky in the conference opener. Even with its 3-1 record, Missouri’s play has underwhelmed with a 9-6 win over UConn and 27-20 win at Arkansas State. 

Missouri could be in line for more trouble Saturday. Star quarterback Maty Mauk was suspended this week for at least one game, and true freshman Drew Lock is expected to start, per the Columbia Tribune

South Carolina put a halt to its struggles last week with a 31-14 triumph over Central Florida. Freshman quarterback Lorenzo Nunez showed some promising dual-threat ability in his first career start, throwing for two scores and rushing for 123 yards. 

With the home crowd behind him, Lock could be in for a big day, as South Carolina enters the game ranked 90th nationally in total defense. However, Nunez gives head coach Steve Spurrier an additional weapon to complement elite playmaker Pharoh Cooper. 

Both teams need a win to help turn around disappointing seasons. Check back here before kickoff for live reactions and feel free to join the discussion in the comments section.

Alabama vs. Georgia: Live Score and Highlights

The Alabama Crimson Tide and the Georgia Bulldogs are getting ready to do battle at Sanford Stadium Saturday afternoon. The game will kick off at 3:30 p.m. ET, and it will air on CBS.

Alabama comes into the game with the No. 4 rushing defense in the country. The Crimson Tide are led by linebacker Reggie Ragland, who has 34 tackles and 1.5 tackles for loss. But the running game for the Crimson Tide has been good as well, as Derrick Henry has rushed for 422 yards and eight touchdowns.

Alabama is facing a Georgia team that is one of the 20 best teams in the country when it comes to running the ball. The Bulldogs average 259 rushing yards per game, and Nick Chubb has led the way with 599 yards and six touchdowns. However, the defense has also played a role in the Bulldogs' success this season. They are third in the conference in total defense (273 yards allowed per game) and second in the conference in scoring defense (13.5 points per game).

Daily Fantasy College Football Week 5: DraftKings Last-Minute Picks and Advice

Daily fantasy football owners might be going into the main course ahead of Week 5, but the college season itself got the cupcakes out of the way early.

Many owners might wish for the friendly confines of easy-to-predict cupcakes, but look at the bright side: tougher games mean tougher play for all owners and more opportunities to crack into major coin if one can sift through the sand and find great value plays. 

Below, let's do just that by analyzing recent performances, matchups, how Las Vegas feels and more to unearth some of the best last-minute value plays for an owner's lineup.


Quarterback: Brenden Motley, Virginia Tech ($5,700)

Ride the Brenden Motley wave, owners.

The junior has been nothing short of impressive in his three games as a starter, as the numbers show:

Motley has quickly emerged as one of the better dual-threat starters owners can buy low on each week, and it's a bit of a surprise his price hasn't gone higher than the $6,000 from Week 4.

Regardless, Motley next gets a struggling Pittsburgh defense, which just allowed 258 passing yards and three touchdowns on the ground to Iowa in the team's first real test of the season.

Look for Motley to post huge numbers as the Panthers struggle to contain the dual-threat quarterback.


Running back: Wendell Smallwood, West Virgina ($4,900)

It's also a bit of a surprise Wendell Smallwood won't cost owners more.

The junior touts an affordable price and strong production over the course of three games this season. He's scored 21.9, 21.2 and 28.0 points this year with three rushing touchdowns and plenty of yardage both on the ground and through the air.

While it might seem obvious to avoid Smallwood considering his West Virginia Mountaineers take on the Oklahoma Sooners, the matchup just isn't what it seems. The Mountaineers are underdogs by a touchdown, yes, but the game has an over-under of 59.5 and the Sooners just let Tulsa's Zack Langer amass 29.1 points.

In fact, two of the three starting backs who have encountered Oklahoma's defense have found strong success so far. Smallwood will merely be the latest thanks to his versatile, every-down ability.


Running back: Zack Langer, Tulsa ($6,100)

Speaking of Langer, he's a great value to consider, too. 

Langer ran 31 times for 161 yards and a score against the Sooners. In the games before that, he posted 22.9 and 31.3 points.

Now Langer finds himself in an amazing position: Tulsa is an underdog by more than a touchdown against Houston this weekend, but the over-under sits at 81.5 and even Texas State just managed two rushing scores against Houston.

Normally, the knee-jerk reaction would be to ignore Langer since his team isn't favored. But this is too good to pass up as Langer figures to see plenty of opportunities in a game with plenty of offensive snaps for everyone.


Wide Receiver: Demarcus Ayers, Houston ($6,200)

Just stick with Houston-Tulsa because it's a hotbed for fantasy activity. 

One of the chief value names to know would be Houston's Demarcus Ayers. In three games, Ayers leads the Cougars with 26 catches for 300 yards and three scores, which translated to outings of 28.5, 19.2 and 40.9 points.

Based on the over-under, it's quite clear the Tulsa defense hasn't been able to stop wideouts. Florida Atlantic wideout Jenson Stoshak caught seven passes for 114 yards and a score against the unit. New Mexico's Dameon Gamblin went eight for 131 and one. Oklahoma's Sterling Shepard, eight for 144.

The point isn't hard to figure out. Ayers sees the bulk of the targets in a pass-happy offense and he even has a rushing attempt in every game thus far. He's going to post a major line at a great price.


Wide Receiver: River Cracraft, Washington State ($6,500)

After a slow 4.6-point start to the season, Washington State wideout River Cracraft has emerged as a serious threat in the Cougars' offense, posting outings of 29.1 and 15.3 points.

In a pass-first attack, Cracraft looks like an incredible value this weekend given the fact his team's the underdog by a whopping 17 points against California in a game with an over-under of 72.

Translation: Cracraft is going to see a huge amount of targets over the course of four frames as Washington State tries to keep things close and pull off the upset.

California hasn't really been tested by a top-tier passing attack yet, so Luke Falk's 73 percent completion rate and eight touchdowns to one interception bodes well for Cracraft given the information surrounding the contest. Look for him to have a major day as a comeback-time producer.

College Football Rankings 2015: Final NCAA Overview of Week 5 Standings

The margin between Ohio State and Michigan State for the No. 1 spot in the Associated Press poll is only 85 points. In the Amway poll, it's exactly 100. If the Buckeyes don't start winning in more convincing fashion, the reigning national champions may not be on top for long, even if their undefeated record remains intact.

Of course, part of OSU's problem is a cupcake schedule. Eventually coach Urban Meyer's powerhouse will square off with the Spartans in late November. The key is to avoid the pitfalls and trap games before then.

Now that the Michigan Wolverines are in the Top 25 too, the regular-season finale road trip to Ann Arbor doesn't look like too much fun, either. For all the attention the SEC deservedly gets as the most reputable conference in the nation, be sure to keep an eye on what happens in Big Ten country.

Below is a final NCAA overview of the Week 5 standings. The subsequent analysis outlines more of what's going on in the other power conferences.



Week 5 Rankings Analysis and Outlook

Let's just start off by mentioning how much of a beast Leonard Fournette has been for LSU.

Fournette's brilliance has offset the fact that longtime defensive coordinator John Chavis fled Baton Rouge for SEC rival Texas A&M prior to the 2015 campaign. Tigers quarterback Brandon Harris is quite limited as a passer for now—let's cut him some slack, though, as he's 19 years old—yet it doesn't matter. ESPN Stats & Info best illustrates why:

It can't be overstated how valuable Fournette is to the LSU program at present. Fans can rejoice too, because as the current rules stand, he has to return to the team for at least another year before jumping to the NFL.

The pro game may be a considerable distance down the road, but Fournette is ready to play on Sundays today. It's showing as he steamrolls the competition, which will continue when he slices through Eastern Michigan's defense this Saturday.

If he keeps running like he is, don't be surprised to see Fournette will LSU into the College Football Playoff when the dust settles.

But for now, the best team in the SEC is Ole Miss, according to the rankings. On the strength of a prior victory over Alabama, the Rebels continue to roll thanks to a defense led by freakish lineman Robert Nkemdiche and a steady signal-caller in Chad Kelly.

ESPN's Todd McShay applauded Nkemdiche's role in the triumph over the Crimson Tide that's boosted Ole Miss to No. 3 in the AP poll ahead of Saturday's showdown with Florida:

Speaking of Alabama, coach Nick Saban has a tough test on his hands in Athens against the Georgia Bulldogs, who filed their own sensational ball-carrier in Nick Chubb.

"Chubb is very strong, physical, fast, explosive. He's got power. He is a complete back in every sense of the word. ... This guy is by far the best back we've played against all year long," Saban said, per's Alex Scarborough.

Following the likes of top-10 NFL draft pick Todd Gurley in the Bulldogs backfield is no easy task. That's why Chubb has been so impressive to date, racking up a ridiculous 599 yards on only 74 carries and six touchdowns to put Georgia firmly in the CFP picture for the time being.

Alabama's reputable offensive line blocks for a strapping back in Derrick Henry, who's also among the best in the land at what he does. Henry and Co. have their work cut out against a solid Georgia defense, though the Crimson Tide present a great impediment to Chubb, having conceded only 1.97 yards per carry, per

Another ranked battle in the SEC takes place Saturday when Mississippi State travels to College Station to take on Texas A&M. Chavis shut down many a dual-threat QB in his LSU heyday and will have the task of neutralizing Mississippi State star Dak Prescott—enough to make that a contest worth watching.

To peel off the SEC for a moment, the other highly ranked matchup pits Notre Dame on the road against Clemson. Resilient as the Fighting Irish have been in persevering and winning in spite of numerous injuries, this is their toughest challenge yet as they enter Death Valley.

ESPN CollegeFootball highlighted how something has to give in one key area:

Frankly, it would be a surprise to see Notre Dame emerge victorious against one of the ACC's two main contenders. Yours truly believes the Clemson defense will deny Irish deep threat Will Fuller and force DeShone Kizer into a critical error in a hostile environment.

The other marquee ACC team is Florida State, led by Notre Dame transfer Everett Golson at quarterback. Golson has yet to throw an interception this season and has explosive running back Dalvin Cook to lean on for supple balance on offense. The Seminoles secondary features top NFL prospect Jalen Ramsey as well to stymie the opposition's passing attack.

Running backs have been dismissed by the NFL in recent years, but this could well be a golden age at the position. Cook, Fournette, Chubb, Henry and Ohio State's Ezekiel Elliott are the driving forces behind many of college football's best teams.

It will be interesting to see how that crop of elite talent impacts the future of the position in the next few years—and how it will ultimately shape the College Football Playoff in its second iteration.

Bowl Predictions 2015: Early Postseason Projections for Top Playoff Contenders

Ohio State and Michigan State, currently the top two teams in the country, are seemingly on a Nov. 21 collision course in the Big Ten. Beyond that, there's plenty of room for movement among College Football Playoff hopefuls as conference play begins to heat up.

After a hectic start to the season, things have calmed down a bit over the last two weeks to solidify the rankings. Expect that to change in the near future because chaos is always right around the corner when one big upset can change the entire outlook.

With that in mind, let's check out some early-season predictions for where the top teams in the nation right now will end up for bowl season. That's followed by a closer look at some squads outside the Top 10 that are worth keeping an eye on in the weeks ahead.


Bowl Predictions for AP Top 10


Other Contenders to Watch

No. 11 Florida State

The Seminoles haven't played like championship contenders yet, but they haven't had to. Their schedule is highly favorable until a three-week stretch starting in late October when they will face Georgia Tech and Clemson on the road. They have until then to round into form.

Florida State had a week off following a mundane 14-0 win over Boston College. While head coach Jimbo Fisher stated he's pleased with the overall direction of the team, he also explained there's still need for more polish on offense, per Safid Deen of the Tallahassee Democrat:

I'm very happy with where we are at. We're taking care of the football. The decisions we have been made have been good decisions.

We've got to make a few more throws. But also got to run a route better, got to catch better. There's a block or two we've missed when he's had an opportunity to make a big play or two. It wasn't all just effort. It was an accumulation.

Between Everett Golson, Dalvin Cook, Travis Rudolph and Jesus Wilson, the pieces are in place for a dynamic offensive attack to emerge. The question is whether the coaching staff can get everything to come together in time for the difficult part of the schedule.

The good news for Florida State is it sits just outside the Top 10 despite no marquee wins. So if the Seminoles do get a couple of statement wins, including one against Clemson in early November, they should move toward the playoff picture pretty rapidly.


No. 13 Alabama

The Crimson Tide are already facing danger this week. By losing to Ole Miss in Week 3, their margin for error is razor thin. It's too early to say getting beat by Georgia on Saturday would completely eliminate them from the playoff picture, but it would certainly put them on the extreme brink.

For Alabama to succeed, the defense needs to perform better in big games. Looking back to its 2011 and 2012 title-winning seasons, only twice did the Tide give up more than 20 points to a ranked opponent. It's happened four times just since the start of last season.

The defensive unit will again be in the spotlight against the Bulldogs. The only silver lining is the fact Georgia's strength—running the football—does play into an area Alabama has consistently performed well, as Joe Schad of ESPN highlighted:

As always, playing in the SEC is both a blessing and a curse. The schedule ensures Alabama has a chance to push back into the playoff picture despite losing a game. But the high number of matchups against ranked foes makes it a tricky tightrope to navigate. Beating Georgia would be a big first step.


No. 17 USC

USC's outlook is quite similar to Alabama's—a team that came into the season with high expectations suffering an early setback, in the Trojans' case a loss to Stanford. Also like the Tide, they have several marquee games to help them regain the lost ground if they round into form.

The most promising sign for the Trojans is the presence of Cody Kessler. He's tossed 15 touchdowns with just one interception through four games. That success in the passing game is a key reason analyst Phil Steele is still picking USC to reach the final four:

I have heard many analysts breaking down the best team in the Pac-12 and because USC has one loss they are discounting them. I still feel USC is the number one team in the Pac-12. They have to play both Oregon and Notre Dame on the road but this team is capable of handling those obstacles. They have a veteran quarterback in Cody Kessler and some of the most dynamic playmakers available at running back and wide receiver, plus a solid offensive line. They face Notre Dame in October which means the weather should be nice. Despite their loss to Stanford I still think USC makes the playoffs this year.

Assuming the Trojans take care of Washington next week, they have a crucial three-game stretch coming up that sees them face Notre Dame, Utah and Cal. The defense must step up in a major way to survive that gauntlet after giving up 41 points to Stanford.

The bottom line is there's still reason for optimism when it comes to the Trojans. They have the offensive firepower to make a serious charge if the defense shows even moderate improvement. A month from now, the outlook will be a lot different—for better or worse.

Connecticut Huskies Take on BYU Cougars in Week 5

Both the UConn Huskies and BYU Cougars are hungry to get back on track after losing each of their last two games. 

The Cougars made a case for being one of the nation's top underdogs at the beginning of the season with wins against Nebraska and Boise State. But BYU lost by one point to No. 10 UCLA in Week 3 and was then clobbered by Michigan 31-0 last week.

The Huskies, meanwhile, won their two first games as well. But, like BYU, they fell narrowly to a ranked Missouri team 9-6 in Week 3 and dropped a game to Navy last weekend.

The two teams' journeys have been similar up to this point in the season, which should make for a tight contest on Friday.

The Cougars' passing attack has enjoyed success this season thanks to quarterback Tanner Mangum's 719 yards and four touchdowns. He will look to improve on last week's uninspiring 55-yard performance against Michigan.

The Huskies defense, ranked 24th in the nation in terms of points allowed, may find it difficult to shut down Mangum—the BYU quarterback has a 162.7 passer rating at home and has been sacked three fewer times at home than on the road. 

Huskies quarterback Bryant Shirreffs will look to attack a Cougars defense that has allowed nearly 27 points per game in 2015. Shirreffs has 847 passing yards and four touchdowns on the season.

The game kicks off at 10:15 p.m. ET.
