THE GAME (OF THE YEAR)

The Game lives up to the hype this year as (10-1) Michigan traveled to Columbus to take on (10-1) Ohio State for the right to take on Purdue in the B1G Championship. After a grueling battle that took 2 overtimes to decide, it was the Wolverines who stood victorious 36-33 in what was possibly the best game of the season.

WILD WEST

The Las Vegas Raiders and the Denver Broncos both won their games Sunday, setting up a week 17 showdown to decide the AFC West. The Raiders toppled the Chiefs 24-14 and the Broncos survived the Jaguars 27-23.

    Week 5: The Rainforest Cafe Award for Football and Jungle Valor. We’re whispering because Air Force was asleep during his bye this week, allowing us to sneak in some different guys to win the POTW awards. If we stay quiet he might not wake up to play his game for week 6 either- OH HEY GOOD MORNING BUDDY GREAT TO SEE YOU, NICO KAUFMAN SURE IS IMPRESSIVE! This week we saw the MWC go 1-3 in out of conference games, with Hawaii picking up the lone win against FAU Schwarz and UNLV giving Clemson a big ol’ spook. In conference, Fresno State put a hurting on Wyoming, Colorado State stayed undefeated against San Jose State, and Boise State continues to right the ship after its win against New Mexico. Also a huge thanks to Numberonecoog for taking over Player of the Week Duties for Week 4. But if you try to steal my job again you’ll be put on the RFC Blacklist. You’ve been warned. Without further delay, let’s dig into our dinosaur-shaped chicken nuggets and name some Week 5 Players of the Week for the Mountain West Conference: Offensive Player of the Week Noel Minor being all like "Get outta my Rainforest Cafe, Air Force, other people are allowed here" Noel Minor, the senior running back for UNLV, ran all over Clemson this week, putting up 143 yard on 29 attempts and racking up an impressive 3 touchdowns. Minor is also the first non-quarterback to win the MWC Offensive Player of the Week award this season. Minor’s performance was crucial in UNLV near-upset of Clemson, and has helped put the team on the map of teams to keep an eye on. Offensive Player of the Week Justin Ivy-Sewell returning an interception while lost in thought about all of the healthy salad options at his local jungle themed restaurant Boise State senior free safety Justin Ivy-Sewell shut down the New Mexico offense, recording 5 tackles and taking away a key interception. Ivy-Sewell currently has the most interceptions and second most tackles of any free safety in the Mountain West, contributing a lot to Boise State’s recent success on the field. Justin is highly deserving of the award this week and will likely bring the Broncos more success throughout the season. There you have it folks. No coupon phrases anymore- excessive use and accusations of harassment got our Arizona location shut down. Although to be honest we forgot we even still had one open in that desert wasteland. Week 6 features 1 out of conference game with UNLV taking on its second ranked ACC team in a row at Duke. Some big in-conference games are the undefeateds Hawaii and Colorado State meeting, and the now-hot Boise State hoping to put an end to Air Force’s dominant start of the season. Also San Jose State and Nevada are playing football against each other. NOT A SINGLE DAMN PLACE

    We are at the Quarter Point in the Season and it's time for Power Rankings. These rankings were made by @Darman, @ImposterCauster, and I. We don't necessarily think this is a ranking of best teams in the conference exactly, but a mixture of on paper talent, game performance, and schedule toughness. Let's get to the Rankings: 1. Not only has Pittsburgh played the toughest schedule, they've beaten everyone so far. This was a no brainer to us. Pitt has played the best out of anyone in the conference to date and they deserve the #1 spot. Grant McConnell is tearing up the competition and looks like a Heisman Candidate early in the season. 2. Clemson gets our #2 spot based on their schedule and talent. Even though they stumbled a little last week, they preserved a win. Their only loss is on the road at Auburn. They are the best team in the Atlantic right now and are favorites to make it back to the ACC Championship Game. 3. Darman has brought this team to life and they are showing it on the field so far this season. Duke has played very well and consistently, and has slain a giant in the conference with their win over FSU last week. Duke is on a roll and should get their first Bowl Game in school history this season. 4. UVA has played well, but against inferior competition. The difference between Duke's schedule and UVA's schedule was our main reason for putting Duke 3 and UVA 4. 5. The first ACC teams to 2 Conference Wins! And the only team without a coach. Syracuse has done well, earning victories of FSU and NCSU. 6. Our last team over .500, Louisville has won more games than they lost. There weren't high expectations for this team, but they seem to be beating those expectations early on. 7. Yes, even with their two game losing streak, we put FSU over Virginia Tech and North Carolina. We felt their on paper talent was justification enough to put them over the Hokies and Heels. FSU will rebound and will get back to a Bowl Game this year. 8. The Hokies lack a certain amount of talent, but they have won 50% of their games so far. Tough losses to Pitt and Oklahoma State and a win over North Carolina gets them to #8. 9. The Heels have surprised many with their play so far. Max Laws has improved mightily and looks like he could be an asset to this team finally. 10. The Jackets have played at Alabama and at Clemson. They fought Alabama tooth and nail, losing by 9 points. They didn't put up a fight against Clemson. They did beat Georgia State, which is an OK win. The Jackets could make moves in the Coastal this year, watch out for them. 11. The Demon Deacons have a win! Which is more than I thought they would have at season's end. They're still not very good however and that one win will most likely be their only win. 12. Oh how the mighty have fallen. Boston College is 0-4, although they've played some good teams and played them hard. They just can't make the plays at the end of the game to finish it off. BC is in serious trouble of not going Bowling. 13. Last year's surprise team in the ACC have come back down to earth. At 0-4, the Wolfpack are feeling a bit uneasy. Not making a Bowl Game this year will hurt, what they should focus on now is dominating recruiting. 14. They might be the worst Power 5 team in the country right now. A couple years of instability at the coaching position has left this team cratered for talent. They can't seem to avoid getting blown out. Fortunately for Canes fans, they are cleaning house in recruiting right now. Please let us know in the comments what changes you would make.

    This was an exciting week for the MWC as Conference play really took off. Week 5 has set Week 6 up to be one of the most crucial weeks in the MWC Season. -Air Force was on bye and plays Boise State this week. This is a big week for both teams. A win by the Broncos would throw the entire Mountain Division up for grabs, while a win by the Falcons would push them even further ahead in the division. -As big as Air Force vs. Boise State is, Colorado State vs. Hawaii may be even bigger. Both teams have their sights set on big goals for this season and a win here for either squad would be a fantastic stepping stone to bigger and better things. -San Diego State was blown out at the hands of Western Michigan and is in need of some serious adjustments. -New Mexico had a rough loss to Boise State, but at 2-2 could still feasibly make a bowl. They'll need to take advantage of some of the weaker teams in the conference to get there. - UNLV nearly pulled off the upset of the season against Clemson, but couldn't quite finish the job. Pollvoters were impressed by the effort and moved them up 3 spots, however. - At 0-4, things are getting desperate for the Wyoming Cowboys. They showed signs of life this week against Fresno State, but they remain without a win. With the (hopeful) return of coach GK, perhaps things will start turning around for the Cowboys. -San Jose State and Nevada are playing football against each other 1. Air Force Falcons 3-0 --- 2. Hawaii Rainbow Warriors 4-0 --- 3. Colorado State Rams 3-0 --- 4. Fresno State Bulldogs 3-1 --- 5. Boise State Broncos 2-2 +1 (6.) San Diego State Aztecs 2-2 -1 (6.) Nevada Wolfpack 1-2 --- 8. New Mexico Lobos 2-2 --- 9. UNLV Rebels 1-3 +3 10. Utah State Aggies 1-3 -1 11. San Jose State Spartans 1-3 -1 12. Wyoming Cowboys 0-4 -1

    [2020] SEC Network: Week 5 POTW

    Week 5 saw every single SEC team in action! Lets see who was the cream of the crop! Offensive Player of the Week QB Tucker Dowden, Missouri 24 of 42 for 305 yards, 2 TD, 1 INT, 6 carries for 51 yards, 2 TD vs #2 Auburn The Tigers may have lost the game, but Dowden put together a show for the ages. The talented junior signal caller was an unstoppable force Saturday evening as he accounted for 4 touchdowns while scrambling and passing all over the Auburn defense. He's currently a strong contender for SEC Offensive Player of the Year, and even the Heisman committee has their eyes on Dowden. Will he be the second Mizzou QB in history to win the most prestigious award in college football? Guess we'll find out! Defensive Player of the Week CB Miles Gray, Tennessee 1 INT, 3 Tackles, 1 TD vs Memphis One of the top defensive backs in the SEC does it again with a great outing against instate rivals Memphis. Gray was back to his ball-hawking best, even returning one to the end zone for 6. The senior corner is one of the best in the nation, and he proved it once again Saturday evening. Special Teams Player of the Week P Benjamin Biggs , Georgia 45.3 Punt Avg vs UMass All systems were a go as the Bulldogs dismantled the Minutemen Saturday morning, but a big piece of that was Biggs and his impeccable punting. Most notable was a third quarter boomer that rolled out at the 2 yard line, netting 58 yards. For that alone, we're giving him the honor of being the first punter selected this season to this tremendous award! SEC POTW Award History
