Five Thoughts: College Football 2013 – Week 12

Five Thoughts from Week 12 in NCAA Football

1. Is Duke for real? We’re used to talking about Duke as a basketball powerhouse but now with 8 wins and a possible ACC championship berth in their sights, is Duke capable of riding this 6 game winning streak any farther? While a win over Miami might not seem that impressive with the way the Hurricanes have played over their last five games, the Blue Devils are in first place in the ACC coastal division.

2. The Bulldogs are snake bitten. Georgia never seems to be able to catch a break. With the game seemingly put away, Auburn’s Ricardo Louis came up with a deflected pass on 4th and 18 in the 4th quarter and took it 73 yards for the win. In what will probably be the play of the year, Auburn’s title hopes continue while Georgia’s season is for the most part done.

3. That record didn’t last long. Three weeks ago when Octavias McKoy ran for 455 yards, I don’t think he expected his record to be broken so quickly. Cartel Brooks ran for 465 yards yesterday against division III Heidelberg University, an incredible fear no matter the opponent.

4. Stoops ties Switzer. Oklahoma Sooners head coach Bob Stoops tied Barry Switzer for most wins at Oklahoma with 157. Stoops also has 10 more losses and two less championships since taking over in 1999.

5. Stanford just hates being 4th. For the third time in the last three years the Stanford Cardinal have lost when ranked 4th in the BCS standings, this time to USC. On the other side of the field, the Trojans have battles back and played well under interim head coach Ed Orgeron. The coaching change has definitely sparked this team as they look to make some noise in the highly competitive PAC-12.
