For the second week in a row, college football fans were treated to an ugly set of early games, snooze fests involving power conferences vs. less-than teams. Things started to pick up as the day wore on, especially when LSU’s Leonard Fournette made his case for the September Heisman.
But none of that compared to the late games, a potpourri of college football bliss with massive upsets, spectacular touchdowns and ridiculously awful (and awesome) special teams play. The night was capped when #2 Alabama lost in dramatic fashion to Ole Miss at home, the program’s second consecutive defeat at the hands of the Rebels.
It featured arguably the play of the decade, an unbelievable carom touchdown after a broken play.
Here now are some of the highlights and lowlights from Week 3 of the college football season.
Sometimes it’s better to be lucky than good.
