Talk about a topsy-turvy week! The college football week has produced some more exciting games, leading to another shake-up in the polls. Here's who won the week and who lost it.
Winner: Juwan Johnson's Last Minute Heroics: The Penn State wide receiver saved the #4 Nittany Lions from devastation as Penn State escaped Iowa City with a last-second win, 21-19. Johnson's seven-yard touchdown reception came after Iowa's Akrum Wadley had a monster fourth quarter, propelling Iowa to a 19-15 lead with under two minutes to play.
Winner: Upsets! TCU and NC State pulled off major road shockers and Arizona State is in the process of pulling one off against #24 Oregon. Expect a major shake-up in the polls on Sunday.
Winner: TCU Horned Frogs: Don't let Mason Rudolph's 398 passing yards fool you; the Oklahoma State quarterback went 22 for 41 passing with two interceptions. Anyways, Darius Anderson had a big day for TCU, running for 160 yards and three touchdowns on 26 carries as #16 TCU beat #6 Oklahoma State in Stillwater, 44-31. With the win, TCU establishes itself as the darkhorse contender for the Big 12.
Loser: Massachusetts Minutemen: The Minutemen had a chance to pull off a road shocker of their own in Knoxville. Instead, they failed to convert third downs as they fell to Tennessee, 17-13.
Loser: Defense in LA-Monroe/ULL: Both teams combined for 1,119 total yards of offense, which were comprised of 481 total rushing yards and 638 total passing yards. Both teams also combined for 106 points in this double-overtime barn burner.
Loser: Iowa Hawkeyes: The Hawkeyes were one play away from establishing themselves as darkhorse contenders for the Big Ten. They ended up getting their hearts ripped out as Penn State pulled out a victory with a last-second touchdown.
Other Winners: Florida's late-game heroics (Again), Myles Gaskin, Duke, Notre Dame
