There were a couple of notable match ups in college football on Friday night, with both games featuring teams that were ranked ahead of the weekend. Those two teams had diverging fortunes on this night. The #13 Oregon Ducks didn’t disappoint at all, blowing out the Colorado Buffaloes 45-3 in a landslide.
Quarterback Justin Herbert had two touchdowns in the victory, handing him the longest TD-pass streak in the nation at 34 games. CJ Verdell also had himself a game at running back, scampering for 171 yards on just 14 carries. The other ranked team, the Virginia Cavaliers, didn’t have any much luck when they took on, and lost, to the Miami Hurricanes. After losing late to Virginia Tech last week, Miami avenged themselves a bit with a 17-9 upset win on the road against the #20 team in the country. N’Kosi Perry was the hero, scoring two TD’s- one through the air and one on the ground- to help them skate away and record a win that puts them a 3-3 on the year.
