Texas A&M 41, Florida 38
Florida’s defensive issues early in the season caught up to them against Texas A&M. Kellen Mond came alive with 338 yards passing and three touchdowns. Meanwhile, the Aggies were equally impressive on the ground, as Isaiah Spiller took the ball 27 times for 174 yards and two touchdowns. Kyle Trask did his best to match that, throwing for 312 yards and four touchdowns. But Texas A&M had the ball last and was able to set up a 26-yard field goal on the last play of the game. It was a huge disappointment for the no. 4 Gators, who host LSU next week while A&M bounced back from a loss to Alabama and stays in the SEC West race.

North Carolina 56, Virginia Tech 45
The North Carolina offense finally woke up, scoring early and often. The Tar Heels led 21-0 after the first quarter and 35-14 at halftime. But the Hokies fought bat, especially after Hendon Hooker took over at quarterback. Hooker threw two touchdowns while Khalil Herbert ran for 183 yards and two touchdowns. However, Virginia Tech never got closer than 42-37. When the game got close in the fourth quarter, the Tar Heels kept on scoring, as Sam Howell completed 18 of his 23 passes for 257 yards and three touchdowns while UNC rushed for 399 yards, most of which was produced by the duo of Michael Carter and Javonte Williams. The no. 8 Tar Heels remain undefeated and appear to have a rather manageable schedule between now and Thanksgiving.

Oklahoma 53, Texas 45 (4 overtimes)
This game got absolutely wild and could go down as one of the best in the history of the Red River Rivalry. Sam Ehlinger took over the game in the fourth quarter, leading the Longhorns to two late touchdowns to get the ball to overtime. The two sides matched scores until the fourth overtime when the Sooners scored a touchdown on the second play of the session and then got a stop.

Spencer Rattler was briefly replaced but finished the game 23 of 35 for 209 yards and three touchdowns. However, the Oklahoma running game turned out to be the savior, as T.J. Pledger ran for 131 yards and two touchdowns on 22 carries. Meanwhile, Texas didn’t give Ehlinger much support. He finished the game 30 of 53 passing for 287 yards while also rushing for 112 yards and four touchdowns. Texas had just 29 rushing yards outside of what Ehlinger provided. Of course, with Oklahoma’s win, both teams have two Big 12 losses this season, giving both teams a huge mountain to climb to reach the Big 12 Championship Game.
