Week 11 of CFB: Georgia Passes Test, Oklahoma Fumbles And OSU Destroy Purdue

After Saturday, Week 11 of the college football season came and went, and it was once again full of excitement and important results. Let’s begin with Georgia’s visit to Knoxville to face the Tennessee Volunteers. Despite starting slowly against the Vols’ fast-paced offense, they recovered and replied with a 17-0 second quarter to take a 24-10 lead into halftime. They were in complete control after that, winning 41-17 when it was all said and done.

However, they had given up 387 total yards of offense and 17 points, a minor miracle against essentially what’s already being called an ‘NFL’ defensive unit. QB Stetson Bennett had two touchdowns (one in the air, one on the ground) while running back James Cook was tremendous, scoring twice and racking up 104 yards on just ten carries. #4 Ohio State also got a big victory on the day, denying #19 Purdue the opportunity to deal with yet another upset by demolishing the Boilermakers. CJ Stroud threw for five touchdowns and 361 yards in a 59-31 rout over an opponent that had already knocked off both Iowa and Michigan State when they were inside the top-five. With a 35-7 lead early in the second, this one was never really in any doubt… Speaking of doubt, that’s what many had in regards to the #8 Oklahoma Sooners heading into the weekend. And they proved those doubters right as they fell to #13 Baylor by a score of 27-14. The Bears’ defense picked off OU QB Caleb Williams twice and allowed the Sooners to just 260 yards of total offense on the day. Gerry Bohanon ran for two touchdowns and threw for another as the home team won to improve to 8-2 and virtually deny the Big 12’s chances of making the CFP this year.
