College football: Top sights and sounds from Week 7
Every Monday on NCAA.com we compile the best sights and sounds from the past week in college football. Relive the coolest moments from Week 7 below.
Michigan State radio call on last-second TD
In one of the craziest finishes in college football history, Michigan State defensive back Jalen Watts-Jackson returned a fumble on a Michigan punt attempt to the house as time expired for the game-winning score in Saturday's rivalry game. While the final play left many of us speechless, Spartans radio announcers George Blaha and Jason Strayhorn were thankfully somehow able to talk as the madness unfolded. Unless you’re a Michigan fan, it’s hard not to get goosebumps listening to this call; Blaha and Strayhorn capture the emotion of the play perfectly. The perfect combo: an unforgettable play and an unforgettable call.
Auburn holds dance party after Kentucky win
Auburn football has had a tough season. Heading into the season many predicted the Tigers would ultimately win the SEC; however, Gus Malzahn’s squad limped out of the gates and lost its first two conference games. But perhaps Auburn is on the verge of turning this season around to a degree. The Tigers won their first SEC game of the season on Thursday, earning a hard-fought victory over Kentucky in Lexington. Auburn went all out in its postgame celebration, holding a dance party in its locker room after the 30-27 win.
Stanford celebrates Christian McCaffrey after big game
Stanford running back Christian McCaffrey had one of the most impressive individual performances of the season on Saturday against UCLA. The sophomore posted a ridiculous statline of 243 yards rushing on 9.7 yards per carry with four touchdowns, helping the Cardinal crush the Bruins 56-35. In a really cool postgame moment, Stanford coach David Shaw awarded McCaffrey the game ball and his teammates lifted him on their shoulders.
LSU’s Tre'Davious White soaks in the moment after big win
In what very well could prove to be an SEC Championship game preview, LSU topped Florida in Baton Rouge on Saturday. Simply put, it was an enormous win for the Tigers. They’re now the only undefeated team remaining in arguably the game’s best conference, and they made a statement that they should be a favorite to make the College Football Playoff. Understandably, the Tigers were feeling good after the win. Cornerback Tre'Davious White was spotted after the game standing with fans while the LSU band played the famous four notes of its salute, creating a pretty awesome scene.
