Wisconsin 16, LSU 14
Not cool, LSU guard Josh Boutte. Not cool at all. However, coach Les Miles told reporters afterward that Boutte told him that he believed the play was still live.
Alabama 52, USC 6
The Crimson Tide won handily, but you wouldn’t have guessed it on the sideline.
Justin Davis of Southern Cal, meet Alabama’s Reuben Foster…
Clemson 19, Auburn 13
Bo Jackson doesn’t like what he sees out of his alma mater in Auburn’s loss to Clemson.
Georgia 33, North Carolina 24
Is Bulldogs RB Nick Chubb fully recovered from his grisly knee injury suffered last year? The North Carolina Tar Heels seem to think so.
