College Football Week 11

With Week 11 coming to an end for the 2019 College Football season, there are only 5 teams left undefeated. This weekend was full of upsets and sob stories. 

The first game I’m going to talk about is the Western Kentucky vs Arkansas game. It would be the Arkansas’s senior players last game on the hill. Arkansas, standing at 2-7, would be facing Western Kentucky, 5-4, and their starting Quarterback would be ex-arkansas player Ty Storey. It would be a revenge story for Storey who was told he wouldn’t be starting if he stayed at Arkansas. Arkansas was projected to win this game, ESPN had Arkansas having a 56% chance of beating Western Kentucky. 

But Storey wanted his revenge story badly, and it showed right from the get-go. Scoring a total of 35 points in the first half, to Arkansas 7, Storey was doing everything he needed to do to set up his team to defeat, he himself scoring 2 rushing touchdowns. At the end of the game, Storey and the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers would get an impressive win, beating the Razorbacks 45-19, as Ty Storey threw for 213 yards on 22-32 passing with 1 touchdown pass along side 2 rushing touchdowns. Storey easily would receive game ball from me. Scoring a total of three touchdowns, along with simply completing his revenge tour, makes him the MVP of the game. Also the fact that him simply helping his team beat the Razorbacks, caused for them to fire their Head Coach, Chad Morris. 

 

The next game I’ll be discussing is the Penn State vs Minnesota game, one of the most shocking games of the year. The Nittany Lions coming into the game sitting pretty at 8-0 with also being ranked #4 overall in the nation, as for the Golden Gophers, ranked #17 overall in the nation,  looking to defend their home turf, while also trying to continue remaining undefeated, it was a big game for both teams with the College Playoffs getting closer and closer. Minnesota simply just seemed in the zone the entire time, only having 1 turnover, while Penn State has 3, the Golden Gophers just simply looked like a better team out there. At the end of the first half, Minnesota would be leading a game they only had a 23.7% chance of winning, 24-13. Although, Penn State made a push in the second half, it wasn’t enough and Minnesota would pull off the upset, winning 31-26. With the game ball easily going to Minnesota Quarterback, Tanner Morgan, who threw for 339 yards on 18-20 passing, thats 90% people that’s impressive, while totaling 3 touchdowns. Really impressive win for the Golden Gophers, showing the nation they are a team that could compete with the best of the best.
