The college football world reacts to Kansas’ stunning 57-56 overtime upset at Texas

Kansas football took down Texas, 57-56, in overtime on Saturday.

Yes, you read that correctly.

And this was a football game, to be clear.

Saturday marked Kansas’ first Big 12 win since 2008 against Iowa State, and it sure was a game to remember.

Kansas led by multiple touchdowns through much of the second half before allowing a game-tying touchdown in the final minutes, which sent the game to overtime at 49-all.

Texas started with the ball in overtime and quickly scored a touchdown, taking a 56-49 lead. After a Kansas touchdown made the score 56-55, Jayhawks coach Lance Leipold opted to play it aggressive and go for the win rather than a tying extra point. Kansas quarterback Jalon Daniels scrambled and found Jared Casey in the end zone for the winning two-point conversion.

Northwestern wasn’t interested in tackling him today

Wisconsin freshman running back Braelon Allen put together a career performance today during the Badgers 35-7 win over the Northwestern Wildcats.

He finished the contest with a career-high 25 carries, career-high 3 touchdowns, 173 yards on the ground (so now six straight 100-yard games) and some SportsCenter Top 10-level explosive runs.

He seems to get better by the week, running more and more patient, explosive and decisive. The success of the offensive line has played a big role in the freshman’s emergence, though days like today also gave us numerous examples of how tough he is to bring down.

As today’s game went on, it was clear Northwestern had no business tackling Allen. Even in moments when the Wildcat defense had the freshman bottled up, Allen bounced off tackles on his way to productive gains.

South Dakota football’s Hail Mary vs. SDSU leaves fans speechless

Anything’s possible in a rivalry game. Even a 57-yard Hail Mary to win the game as time expires.

That’s exactly what happened on Saturday as South Dakota football upset South Dakota State in the DakotaDome.

With one second left on the clock, Coyote quarterback Carson Camp took a snap with three receivers to his right. He rolled to his right, evaded a would-be tackler and heaved a pass toward the end zone.

Camp’s pass was a few yards short of the goal line but made its way to a cluster of USD and SDSU players. A Jackrabbit defender tipped the ball into the air before the ball landed in the outstretched arms of Coyote Jeremiah Webb.

Camp’s game-winning throw gave South Dakota it’s second win in a row and seventh on the season. The Coyotes face North Dakota State next on Nov. 20 in their regular-season finale.

Here’s what
