NCAA Football Top Ten Week 5 Recap

Auburn 16,  10. South Carolina 13

The Tigers and Game Cocks exchanged scores in the first quarter, but a 1-yard run by Michael Dyer gave  Auburn a 9-6 Halftime lead. Marcus Lattimore’s 15-yard run gave South Carolina the lead back, but for the most part he was pretty ineffective only rushing for 66 yards.  With a minute and a half left in the game, Auburn drove down the field and completed the upset with a 9-yard pass from Barrett Trotter to Philip Lutzenkirchen. Stephen Garcia earned his self a seat next week after throwing 2 interceptions in the loss. South Carolina hosts Kentucky this week.

Barrett Trotter's 112 yards and 9-yard pass led to the upset.

9. Oregon

7. Wisconsin 48, 8. Nebraska 17

The Corn Huskers got a very rude introduction to the Big Ten Saturday Night in Madison. The combination of Russell Wilson and Montee Ball destroyed Nebraska to the tune of 486 total yards. Wilson continued to be effective through the air throwing for 255 yards and 2 touchdowns, while Ball ran for 151 yards and 4 scores. The Badgers have the week off before hosting Indiana next week, and Nebraska hosts Ohio State in prime time.

The Corn Huskers had no answer for Montee Ball.

6. Stanford 45, UCLA 19

The Bruins were just another stepping stone on the path to the Heisman for Andrew Luck. He threw for 227 yards and 2 touchdowns in a rout of UCLA. The Cardinals will host Colorado this week.

Luck shredded the UCLA secondary.

5. Oklahoma State

4. Boise State 30, Nevada 10

While the passing game struggled, Doug Martin demolished Nevada for 126 yards and 2 touchdowns. The Broncos travel to Fresno State for a Friday night affair this week.

While Moore struggled, Martin ran all over Nevada.

3. Alabama 38, Florida 10

Gator was on the menu at the Trent Richardson Show this week. He ran for 181 yards and 2 touchdowns as Florida was blown away by the Crimson Tide. The Alabama defense suffocated the Gator offense, allowing 15 rushing yards and forcing two turnovers.  Alabama hosts Vanderbilt this week.

Florida's defense had no answer for Richardson.

2. Oklahoma 62, Ball State 6

1. LSU 35, Kentucky 7

The Tigers manhandled Kentucky for 348 yards, in a game that was 28-0 at halftime. Jordan Jefferson returned from his suspension with a 1-yard touchdown run to get LSU on the board.
