SMU And Florida Headline Week 6 Of College Football

Jonathan Grant | October 6th, 2019

For another week of action in college football, there was very little to shock the system toward the upper end of the standings on Saturday. Georgia shook off a slow start to win, Oklahoma did the same, and Wisconsin rolled to a dominant win. That left SMU to lead the way for the week, with the No.24 ranked Mustangs improving their record to 6-0 thanks to a wild 43-37 victory in triple overtime.

The Mustangs had fallen behind 30-9 after the third quarter and looked dead set on losing their undefeated status to Tulsa. But the Golden Hurricane ended up getting surprised as SMU scored three touchdowns in the final quarter to tie the game up and push it up into OT. Shane Buechele found wide receiver James Proche, who had 153 yards total and two TD’s on the night, for the winning grab. Elsewhere, the Florida Gators were the team that had the ‘best’ win as they remained undefeated by handing the Auburn Tigers their first loss of the season in a rare SEC battle. It was a tight ball game throughout, but in the fourth the Gators pulled away to take a 24-13 lead, a lead that they would not look bad from. The hero of the Swamp was running back Lamical Perine, who ran for an 88 yard TD in the fourth, part of a 130-yard day. The defense wasn’t too shabby, either, intercepting Bo Nix three times and allowing him to complete just 11 of 27 passes. Florida’s nightmare schedule continues next week when they go to LSU.
