Miami radio call of game-winning touchdown
Another week, another absolutely unbelievable finish. Someway, somehow the Miami Hurricanes returned a kick return for a touchdown after eight laterals to beat Duke on Saturday. Pure insanity, and Hurricanes radio announcer Joe Zagacki captured it perfectly. While the ACC announced on Sunday that the the touchdown should not have counted due to missed penalties by the referees on the play, the record books will remember the game as a Miami win.

Bob Stoops really embraced the Halloween spirit this year. The Oklahoma coach wore a Yoda mask and danced in the locker room after his team toppled Kansas 62-7 on Saturday. Stoops had plenty of reasons to dance. The Sooners are now 7-1 on the season and are looking like a team capable of making a College Football Playoff run.
Michigan celebrates with the Little Brown Jug trophy
It wasn’t easy, but Michigan survived against Minnesota on Saturday and improved to 6-2 on the season. Up three, the Wolverines completed a goal-line stand as time expired in the contest. After such a hard-fought victory, Jim Harbaugh’s squad was understandably pumped up as they walked off the field with the coveted Little Brown Jug trophy, which is awarded to the winner of the rivalry game every year.
Utah has water bottle party in locker room
Utah’s dream season suffered a major blow in Week 8 when it lost its first game of the season to USC. However, the Utes showed some resilience and bounced back this week with a convincing 27-12 win over Oregon State. Utah’s players had some fun in the locker room after the needed win, celebrating with a water bottle party.
Tennessee players sing "Rocky Top" after win over Kentucky
Unless you’re a fan of a Tennessee rival, hearing “Rocky Top” never gets old. The Volunteers celebrated their dominant 52-21 win over Kentucky on Saturday with a fun performance of arguably the most famous fight song in college sports. With it having four losses already, this season hasn’t gone how Tennessee would have liked it to, but perhaps its outstanding Week 9 performance is a sign of things to come.
