The top plays in College Football's wild week 1
Tyrone Swoopes Steals the Show
In a Sunday night classic, Texas edged Notre Dame in a fantastic overtime duel. The Longhorns were carried by gunslinging true freshman Shane Buechele, but it was their senior QB known as the eighteen wheeler that won his team the game on this incredible QB draw in the second overtime.
Kick Six For Houston
In route to the upset victory against #3 Oklahoma, Houston accomplished one of the most exciting plays in football. A kick six after the Sooners field goal attempt fell short gave all the momentum to the Cougars, and they never looked back. This play was awfully similar to the Auburn kick six a couple years ago against Alabama. That team ended up in the national championship. Is the same in store for Houston?
Nebraska Honors Late Punter
It was a tough offseason for Nebraska as their starting punter passed away in a car crash this summer. In their first game of this season, they decided to remember Sam Foltz by only sending 10 players out for a punt. The most forgivable penalty of all time.
South Alabama Winning TD
It was a weekend of upsets and close calls in college football. One of the biggest underdogs to come away with a victory was South Alabama going into Starkville and beating Mississippi State on a last minute touchdown. Miss. State came back for a chance to win in the final seconds but came up short.
Kicker Destroys Return Man
You never expect your kicker to make a great tackle on a kick return. But that’s exactly what this Penn State kicker accomplished on Saturday. A booming hit from the over 250 pound man was fun to watch.
On The Diamond
Back to Back to Back
This is what the Angels envisioned when they signed Albert Pujols and called up the phenom Mike Trout. The two backended three straight homers for the Angels over the weekend.
Ben Gamel Lays Out
Playing outfield in the MLB is not for the faint of heart. Gamel proved that by laying out near the right field wall to make the grab. He shows no fear on the diamond.
Looking Back, Looking Ahead
On this day last year, Kris Bryant absolutely destroyed a homer 495 feet. Lucky for you, we have the print for sale here.
Ken Griffey Jr. hit his 50th homer of the season on this day 18 years ago. He is only the third player in history to hit at least 50 home runs in two consecutive years.
