Time to celebrate
SMU tried to celebrate. The Mustangs really did. However, TCU wasn't having it when they tried to plant their flag on the field.

This is the interception that sealed the win for the Eagles.
Even the Eagles' social team had fun celebrating the win.
Of course Notre Dame had to savor its win over Wisconsin with this caption.
The City of Fresno has declared this week "Fresno State Football and Quarterback Jake Haener Week." There should be more of this around college football when a team majorly upsets someone like Fresno State did to UCLA last weekend.

Many happy returns
You figured it would be a good day for Alabama's Jameson Williams when he returned the opening kickoff 100 yards for a touchdown. He finished with three kick returns for 177 yards and two TDs, plus one reception for 81 yards and another score.
Apparently there's a new tree in town for Stanford.

Game Day antics
Kevin Kelly doesn't believe in punting, and, yes, you are reading those words correctly. It's an unorthodox way of playing, but a fascinating one nonetheless. Read more about the Presbyterian head coach here.

QB controversy in Norman?
After a first half in which he threw for 73 yards, one touchdown and one interception, Oklahoma fans were chanting, "We want Caleb," referencing freshman Caleb Williams, who was the No. 16 prospect overall in the 2021 recruiting class.
Chants came midway through the second quarter after West Virginia cornerback Jackie Matthews picked off Rattler on a deflection.
