Sunday’s Den: Wrapping up a sports Saturday

13) Coastal Carolina 22, BYU 17— This game was put together Thursday morning, after Liberty had to back out because of COVID issues. Was a fun game to watch; unsure how Chanticleers convinced McCall to come play QB for them, but he’s a hell of a player.

BYU completed a pass to the Coastal 1-yard line on last play of the game, but the receiver was stopped short of the goal line, much like Kevin Dyson in Super Bowl XXXIV for the Titans. 

12) Indiana 14, Wisconsin 6:
— Indiana coach Tom Allen is the national Coach of the Year. Period.
— Hoosiers lost their QB for the year last week; they win here as a 13-point dog.
— Indiana is 6-1 for the first time since 1993.

11) Missouri 50, Arkansas 48:
— Arkansas scored TD with 0:43 left, got 2-point conversion, took a 48-47 lead.
— Missouri kicked a 32-yard FG at the gun for the win.
— Arlansas led 40-26 with 13:00 left in the game; Mizzou scored 27 points in 4th quarter.

10) Iowa State 42, West Virginia 6— Cyclones clinch their first-ever appearance in the Big X title game; not sure why a bigger $$$ school hasn’t scooped up coach Campbell.

9) TCU 29, Oklahoma State 22:
— TCU QB Duggan threw for 265 yards, ran for 104 more.
— Oklahoma State led 13-0 after first quarter, 16-7 at halftime.
— Horned Frogs won despite turning ball over five times (-4)

8) California 21, Oregon 17:
— Oregon’s loss makes standings in Pac-12 North a muddled mess.
— Three Cal coaches, including the head coach, are Oregon alums. 

7) Upsets of the Week:
— Rice (+24) 20, Marshall 0
— New Mexico (+18) 17, Wyoming 16
— Indiana (+13.5) 14, Wisconsin 6
— Eastern Michigan (+13.5) 53, Western Michigan 42
— Stanford (+12) 31, Washington 26
— Coastal Carolina (+10.5) 22, BYU 17
— California (+9) 21, Oregon 17

6) San Diego State 29, Colorado State 17— Aztecs are first college team in last five years to return a kick back for a TD and a punt back for a TD, both in same quarter.

5) Alabama 55, LSU 17:
— Crimson Tide led 45-14. At halftime.
— DeVonta Smith had 7 catches, 219 yards, three TD’s. At halftime.

4) Florida 31, Tennessee 19— Florida QB Trask has thrown 38 TD passes this season, only three INT’s, pretty impressive numbers. 

3) SMU 66, Dayton 64— 4-0 Mustangs were down 10 early in second half; by Selection Sunday, this win will look better than it does now.

2) Kansas 65, North Dakota State 61— Kansas outscored the Bison 7-0 over final 3:57 to avoid a big upset. North Dakota State led 8-0 early, came up just a little bit short.

1) Iona 82, Hofstra 74— Rick Pitino gets his first win as coach of the Gaels.

I've been involved in sports my whole life, now just write about them. I like to travel, mostly to Las Vegas- they have gambling there.
