Ohio State 42, Indiana 35
When the Buckeyes scored on their second offensive play, it looked like this could be a mismatch. But the Hoosiers gave Ohio State a true test. The Indiana defense picked off Justin Fields three times, literally doubling the number of interceptions in his career. Of course, the Hoosiers also turned it over four times, which hurt their cause. Despite some inconsistency with his accuracy, Michael Penix threw five touchdown passes and made some amazing throws. The Hoosiers finished with -1 rushing yards, so Penix throwing the ball was their entire offense, bringing Indiana back after trailing 35-7 early in the third quarter. Indiana had one last chance to tie the game late in the final minute but came up a little short. After surviving this scare, there doesn’t seem to be much that can prevent Ohio State from getting to the Big Ten Championship Game.

Alabama 63, Kentucky 3
Alabama was favored by 32 points at kickoff and the Crimson Tide nearly doubled that. Oddly enough, Mac Jones didn’t have a monster day, throwing for a mere 230 yards and two touchdowns. The Crimson Tide scored nine touchdowns on a modest 509 total yards. It was the Alabama defense that dominated, holding Kentucky to just 179 yards and scoring on a pick-six by Jordan Battle. It’s safe to say that the Crimson Tide wasn’t looking ahead to next week’s Iron Bowl showdown with Auburn. It’s only Auburn and a road game against Arkansas that stands between Alabama and a trip to the SEC Championship Game.

Northwestern 17, Wisconsin 7
The power in the Big Ten West has officially shifted. Northwestern improved to 5-0 after knocking off a previously unbeaten Wisconsin team. The Wildcats proved their worth defensively, forcing five turnovers, including three interceptions by Wisconsin quarterback Graham Mertz. Of course, the Northwestern offense didn’t have a great game either. But the Wildcats only turned it over once and Peyton Ramsey made just enough quality throws to get Northwestern to the end zone a couple of times despite just 24 rushing yards. This win gives the Wildcats the inside track on going to the Big Ten title game for the second time in three years. Northwestern has road games against Michigan State and Minnesota and a home game against Illinois. Even if they lose one of those games, the Wildcats will still play for a conference championship.

Cincinnati 36, Central Florida 33
The Bearcats got their toughest test of the season but managed to survive. The game went back and forth with UCF holding a 25-22 lead after three quarters. Cincinnati scored back-to-back touchdowns to lead 36-25, only for the Knights to strike back and make it a three-point game. But the Bearcats did a great job of running out the clock. Even when they got inside the five-yard line, Cincinnati refused to score another touchdown just so they could run down the clock. Statistically, the Bearcats were undoubtedly the better team, with Desmond Ridder throwing for 338 yards and two touchdowns while rushing for 57 and two more scores. Cincinnati is still a long shot to reach the College Football Playoff, although they are road wins against Temple and Tulsa away from a perfect regular season.

Oklahoma 41, Oklahoma State 13
Oklahoma’s quest for a sixth straight Big 12 title is alive and well after a blowout of their in-state rivals. Oklahoma State quarterback Spencer Sanders was knocked out of the game in the first quarter, only to mysteriously return in the fourth quarter. In between, backup Shane Illingworth completed just five of his 21 passes. Meanwhile, Spencer Rattle had perhaps the best game of his career, completing 17 of 24 passes for 301 yards and four touchdowns and one more rushing touchdown. The Sooners also 141 rushing yards from Rhamondre Stevenson. Chuba Hubbard carried the ball just eight times, as the Oklahoma defense was outstanding, keeping the Cowboys off the scoreboard in the second half. As it stands, Iowa State is the only one-loss team in Big 12 play while Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, and Texas all have two league losses. Since the Sooners have head-to-head wins over both OSU and Texas, the Sooners control their own destiny and can reach the Big 12 Championship Game with wins over West Virginia and Baylor.

USC 33, Utah 17
The Trojans finally won a game that didn’t come down to the final minute. Kedon Slovis had a solid game, but it was the USC defense that stole the show. The Trojans forced five Utah turnovers, including a fumble returned for a touchdown. They also held Utah scoreless in the second half, allowing the Trojans to win by a comfortable margin, especially since the USC offense only managed three field goals in the second half. At 3-0, USC is halfway to reaching the Pac-12 Championship Game, although they face a 2-0 Colorado team next week and still have a rivalry game with UCLA lurking at the end of the regular season.
