Top 25 College Football Week 12 Results
#1 Alabama vs Chattanooga 31-3
The only thing to say is let’s wait to see what happens on the end with Alabama.
#2 Ohio State vs Michigan State 17-16
Talk about a close call. Ohio manages to stay on top, after going scoreless in the fouth quarter. If Michigan had gone for the point after instead of trying the 2 point conversion they would have probably gone into overtime. Bt they did not. The result, a loss.
#3 Louisville vs Houston 10-36
Jus starting the week, on Thursday, came this upset. Talk about spoilers. Louisville had come from the previouslosses to fall into the #3 position and a shot at the title. Just at the start, a fumble, then another fumble, then a deflection in the hands of a receiver, etc. By mid third quarter Houston was up 31-0.
#4 Michigan vs Indiana 20-10
Another top team scared as they trailed into the third quarter, just to bounce back and win.
#5 Clemson vs Wake Forest 35-13
Easy win as Clemson gets the ACC Atlantic title.
#6 Wisconsin vs Purdue 49-20
Wisconsin runs all over Purdue in a game that seemed complicated until the second quarter.
#7 Washington vs Arizona State 44-18
Another game that was easy, in this case for Washington.
#8 Oklahoma vs #10 West Virginia 56-28
We expected this game to be closer in the scoreboard. It did get closer, on a fist fight, but that is another story (check the video). The Sooners were already up 34-0 in the second quarter.
#9 Penn State vs Rutgers 39-0
There is nothing to say here.
#10 West Virginai played Oklahoma

#13 Oklahoma State vs TCU 31-6
Teh Cowboys have come to show they are improving on every game. Esay win here.
#14 Western Michigan idle
#15 USC vs UCLA 36-14

#16 LSU vs #21 Florida 10-16
Another upset this past weekend was for the Tigers, who got eaten by the Gators. Another quarrel on the field, just as in the Houston game got the teams pumped. Florida holds off LSU to win SEC East and will play Alabama in the SEC title game.
