In arguably the biggest weekend of college football this season, Saturday featured the first true test for Alabama as they played their first ranked opponent, a top-10 match-up between two unbeaten SEC teams and the always classic Red River Shootout.

All three games lived up to the hype, but all three were instantly forgotten as the news rolled in that the No. 3 Georgia Bulldogs had fallen to the unranked South Carolina Gamecocks in double overtime by a final score of 20-17.

Georgia entered the game favored by three touchdowns but failed to put the many on the board by the end of the day as the team collapsed at all three levels of the game. D’Andre Swift was effectively shut down by a surprisingly stout Gamecocks front line. Jake Fromm was inaccurate, at best, throwing three interceptions in the contest, one resulting in a South Carolina touchdown.

Inexplicably, Kirby Smart opted for an end-of-regulation Hail Mary instead of giving Rodrigo Blankenship the opportunity to kick a game-winning 55-yard field goal. But when the game came down to his foot in the second overtime, Blankenship pushed the ball wide to give South Carolina the win.

With the rest of the top-10 taking care of business, No. 1 Alabama ran away from No. 24 Texas A&M, No. 5 LSU’s high-powered offense overwhelmed No. 7 Florida in the second half and No. 6 Oklahoma outlasted No. 11 Texas in a true shootout, the Bulldogs will be lucky to remain in their midst when the new polls are released.
