Another exciting week of football is in the books.
Last week provided some intriguing action, and this week didn’t disappoint, either.
Here’s a look at some of the interesting storylines.
Texas 48 Oklahoma 45
The Red River Shoot lived up to its name.
One of the most storied rivalries in college football history didn’t disappoint.
Second-year Longhorns coach Tom Herman was desperate for a big win to solidify his tenure.
He got it against the #6 ranked Sooners and their high-powered offense.
Texas had a 45-24 lead in the 4th quarter, but Oklahoma and Heisman hopeful Kyler Murray stormed back to tie the game late.
But the Longhorns secured the victory with a last-second field goal.
Florida 27 LSU 19
The 5th-ranked LSU Tigers fell from the ranks of the unbeaten.
First-year Florida head coach Dan Mullen scored a huge win after suffering an embarrassing home loss to Kentucky.
LSU starting QB Joe Burrow, a transfer from Ohio State, picked a bad time to throw his first career interception.
With his team trailing 20-19 late, Burrow threw a pick-six that all but iced the game for Florida.
Miami 28 Florida State 27
Perhaps no rivalry has seen more NFL superstars participate in it.
The Hurricanes and Seminoles engaged in epic battles that basically decided the national championship for a decade.
Over the past 19 matchups, only four were decided by double digits.
These games are always heated and close, and this year was no different.
Adding to series lore, Miami overcame the largest deficit in the rivalry, 20 points.
Redshirt freshman quarterback N’Kosi Perry led the Hurricanes to victory in only his second collegiate start.
Down 20 in the 3rd quarter ➡️ 21 unanswered points
N’Kosi Perry came up HUGE for @CanesFootball when they needed him most!

Minnesota 23 Philadelphia 21
The Minnesota Vikings got their revenge against the defending Super Bowl champs.
Minnesota flew into last year’s NFC Championship game riding high on arguably the most improbable victory in NFL history.
But the following week, the Eagles embarrassed them on their way to the Super Bowl.
However, it’s a new year and the Vikings pulled off the road win they were unable to claim this past January.
Cleveland 12 Baltimore 9
After being the laughing stock for years, the Cleveland Browns look like a competent football team.
In only five games, the Browns have already doubled their win total for the past two seasons.
It’s amazing the difference a quarterback can make.
Rookie signal-caller Baker Mayfield has the offense looking functional after years of chaos.
And after kicking cost the Browns two wins this year, they defeated their division rivals on a game-winning field goal in overtime.
L.A. Rams 33 Seattle 31
The Rams kept pace with the Kansas City Chiefs and remained undefeated.
They arguably ended the Seahawks’ reign last season by defeating them 42-7 in Seattle, an unthinkable loss only a couple years ago.
In firm control of the division, the Rams went into Seattle to claim another road victory.
The outcome was much closer but the result was the same.
A crushing Rams win.
