Over the weekend, Penn State football improved to 3-0, and so did the college football slate.
A slew of rivalry games, close matchups, and lack of domination from many presumed powerhouse teams made for an exciting Saturday...and early Sunday morning.
First, let’s start with the main event: No. 18 Colorado 43 — Colorado State 35. This matchup lived up to and exceeded the hype, mostly thanks to the Rams punching above their pay grade. A College GameDay-fueled overtime thriller. What’s better than this?

You can literally see this piece of shit tracking Travis Hunter… Henry Blackburn knew exactly what he was doing and he needs to be Banned from College Football entirely for taking such a dirty and completely unnecessary cheap shot.pic.twitter.com/CZQdoJpzoK— MΛSIΛM (@MasiaM) September 18, 2023
Colorado State safety Henry Blackburn took a cheap shot on Travis Hunter that sent him to the hospital and will have him out for weeks.— RedditCFB (@RedditCFB) September 17, 2023
Anyways, here’s a video of him getting cooked for the game-tying touchdown pic.twitter.com/etrLKjq1vT
Deion Sanders got Kawhi out in Colorado. Kawhi don’t even be at his own games. https://t.co/dxI7unimjf— philip lewis (@Phil_Lewis_) September 17, 2023

The trend of dirty hits and bad blood continued in the swamp with Florida 29 — No. 11 Tennessee 16. After the Vols struggled with Austin Peay last week, it looks like the wheels are starting to come off. But, the 2-1 Gators are ranked now. That’s fun.
Meanwhile... Look at Florida and Tennessee tonight... lol.— Rob Hodge (@RobHodge_) September 17, 2023
Finally got around to rewatching last night’s game… Tennessee got away with two massive OPIs on their two biggest plays of the game. Glad we exposed that fraud gimmick offense pic.twitter.com/13HY1gWzMN— ani (@AniruddhC1108) September 18, 2023

While the Backyard Brawl may have been the rivalry with the most traditionally bad blood on this week’s slate, West Virginia 17 — Pitt 6 didn’t feature much beyond ugly football. Our in-state friends played especially poorly. p.s. — ESP means “Eat Shit, Pitt”

Christian Veilleux is a legit power 5 QB. It’s really unfortunate that Galaxy Brain has him holding a clipboard while the starting QB spends the entire game stepping on rakes.— Geoff Rushton (@GeoffRushton) September 17, 2023
16 months ago Phil Jurkovec was thought to be a top ten pick pic.twitter.com/5mIqGhsKBE— Dan Watkins (@DanWatkinsRadio) September 17, 2023
The Crimson Tide are out of the Top 10 for the first time since the Christian Hackenberg era. While inclement weather played a factor, No. 10 Alabama 17 — South Florida 3 was a stinker all the way through.
That’s most likely the game but this sucked. https://t.co/7QIFBAuIIo— Barstool Bama (@BarstoolAlabama) September 16, 2023
Yeah Nick Saban is done with this team pic.twitter.com/l1u4vWHe2e— MattBeGreat (@mattbegreatyt) September 16, 2023

Just when you thought Florida State had a chance to emerge as a clear No. 1, especially amid Georgia struggling with South Carolina, the Seminoles stumbled. No. 3 Florida State 31 — Boston College 29 featured a comeback effort by the Eagles that was just too late.

Here it is. The worst seat in college football. ZERO percent visibility. A wall to your right. No video board to follow the action because you’re looking at the back of it. Enjoy the sounds of the game, but none of the sights. pic.twitter.com/0UOT3lPC3T
Quick reminder that while Penn State did struggle today at Illinois offensively, #3 Florida State is currently in a dog fight with Boston College. Survive and advance my friends.— TK (@PSU_TK) September 16, 2023
11 penalties by BC is crazy but Im supposed believe ZERO FOR FSU AINT SUS??? pic.twitter.com/fYwm6suF7L— JC (@Gods_sonJ) September 16, 2023
- Georgia almost lost at home to a below average South Carolina team— Sam Block (@theblockspot) September 17, 2023
- Michigan & JJ made Bowling Green’s defense look like the ‘85 Bears
- Texas was in a battle with Wyoming
- Florida State survived a Boston College team that won’t make a Bowl Game
—— Why is this the Top 4…?
Let’s do it all again next week, shall we? Happy White Out week, folks.
