College football: Top sights and sounds from Week 8
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 8 below.
Georgia Tech radio call of blocked field goal return
Another Saturday, another college football game ends in jaw-dropping fashion. A week after Michigan returned a fumble on a Michigan State punt attempt for the game-winning score, Georgia Tech beat Florida State at the buzzer on a blocked field goal returned for a touchdown. Considering the manner in which Tech won, and that they entered the contest having lost five in a row while FSU entered it undefeated, it was one of the most stunning finishes of this season. Georgia Tech radio announcers Brandon Gaudin and Sean Bedford did a fantastic job summing up the madness. Goosebumps.
Dabo Swinney keeps on dancing
A Clemson win can only mean one thing: Dabo Swinney is going to dance, this time to Drake’s “Hotline Bling.” The Tigers coach, and his players, had yet another post-game dance party on Saturday after they toppled Miami 58-0. Swinney can dance all he wants; there’s a strong case to be made that he has the best team in the country right now. Keep on enjoying life, Dabo.
Vanderbilt has on-field dance party after win over Missouri
Vanderbilt also did some dancing on Saturday. However, the Commodores were apparently so excited following their win over Missouri that they couldn’t even wait until entering the locker room to break out the moves. A number of players circled up on the field and had some fun after helping coach Derek Mason earn his first SEC win. It’s a shame Vanderbilt and Clemson don’t play this season because we would love to see them go head to head in a dance off.
Pitt players sing victory song after Syracuse win
Heading into the season, few thought we would enter Week 9 with Pittsburgh leading the ACC’s Coastal Division, but here we are. Pitt remained unbeaten in conference play with a 23-20 win over Syracuse on Saturday, a game that came down to a Panthers field goal as time expired. Naturally after such an exciting win, Pitt was a little more amped than usual to sing their victory song in the locker room.
