Cincinnati closes it out

The Bearcats handle ECU on the road in fairly impressive fashion, covering the spread and closing the regular season 12-0. Next up is a showdown with a Houston team that will be entering on an 11-game winning streak after it beats UConn tomorrow. That title game will be the biggest G5 vs. G5 game in CFB history. Cincinnati gets the dub vs. ECU despite turning the football over three times. The Bearcats held ECU to 1.4 yards per rushing attempt. ECU closed it to 28-13 with 9:38 left, but the Bearcats closed it out with a short TD drive.

NC State strikes first

The Wolfpack strike first on a blocked punt by Jordan Houston that C.J. Riley recovers in the end zone. What a start to the rivalry showdown in Raleigh. Wake Forest, NC State and Clemson are all still in the mix for the Atlantic Division title. Wake will be the winner if it takes care of BC on the road tomorrow. But if the Demon Deacons were to falter and NC State were to lose this game, it would be Clemson. An NC State win and Wake loss would mean the Wolfpack get the nod.

Utah keeps momentum

The Utes keep momentum heading into next week's Pac-12 title game as they knock off Colorado 28-13 at home. Utah holds Colorado to just 148 total yards and only nine first downs. Utah's Tavion Thomas and TJ Pledger both surpass 100 yards on the ground. Tonight's Apple Cup and tomorrow's action will determine who Utah plays in the Pac-12 title game. Oregon, Oregon State and Washington are all still in the mix out of the North.

Not over yet ... 

No. 4 Cincinnati has been in control for most of the day on the road in a potential trap game against East Carolina. However, the Pirates just put together a touchdown drive to make it 28-13 with just over nine minutes left in the fourth quarter. Outside of a huge second quarter in which the Bearcats scored 21 points in a hurry, their offense hasn't produced much on the board. Cincy's defense has been good as usual, but the undefeated playoff hopefuls aren't out of the woods yet.

Arkansas puts Mizzou on ice

It's been an impressive showing for the Hogs today as they cap off an impressive Year 2 regular season under coach Sam Pittman. Arkansas leads Missouri 34-9 in the fourth quarter behind a banner day from quarterback K.J. Jefferson (323 total yards) and receiver Treylon Burks (7 catches, 129 yards, TD). The Tigers' defense hasn't been good this year, but the Razorbacks have been taking advantage with big plays all day.

Utah keeping Colorado at arm's length

It hasn't been the Utes' prettiest performance -- and no one would blame them for a letdown after beating Oregon -- but Kyle Whittingham's team has found a way to stay one step ahead of Colorado. Tavion Thomas rumbled his way into the end zone early in the third quarter to give Utah a 21-13 lead over Colorado. It's been a little sloppy, but Utah is getting it done on the ground.

Record-making Hall

Iowa State running back Breece Hall has broken the all-time record for most consecutive games with a rushing touchdown, breaking the 51-year-old record set by Arkansas' Bill Burnett in 1970. Hall scored a breakaway 39-yard touchdown for his 24th straight game with a rushing score to give the Cyclones a 17-0 lead in the first half. In addition to his 53rd career touchdown, Hall entered Friday with nearly 4,400 yards from scrimmage to his name in three seasons.

KJ Jefferson in the injury tent

No. 25 Arkansas still leads Missouri 10-0, but could have just suffered a big loss early in the second half. Quarterback KJ Jefferson, the dual-threat star who's a power in between the tackles as a runner, went down hard in the first drive of the second half and went to the injury tent after walking off the field. Malik Hornsby began to warm up before Jefferson emerged from the tent. It'll be interesting to see if Razorbacks offensive coordinator Kendal Briles lets Jefferson cook on the ground knowing that he's a bit banged up.

Razorbacks up on Mizzou

Half: No. 25 Arkansas 10, Missouri 6

The Razorbacks are looking to reach the eight-win mark in coach Sam Pittman's second year, and are 30 minutes away from doing just that. Raheim Sanders scored from one yard out midway through the second quarter for the game's only touchdown. Missouri running back Tyler Badie hasn't had any issue against this Razorbacks defense, though, rushing for 117 yards on 22 carries. The Tigers are are 3 of 10 on third downs through two quarters, which is a big reason why Badie's performance hasn't impacted the scoreboard.

Now Cincinnati is rollin'

The fourth-ranked Bearcats caught fire in the second quarter by ripping off three straight touchdowns to take a 21-3 lead with under five minutes to play in the second frame. Quarterback Desmond Ridder has thrown two touchdown passes, including this 44-yarder to Leonard Taylor for their first score of the game. 

Running back Jerome Ford, who was banged up early in the game, ran one in two yards out for Cincinnati's other TD. It's a big stage for the Bearcats who, despite being ranked No. 4 in the College Football Playoff rankings, could use some style points in case either Oklahoma or Oklahoma State win out and take the Big 12 crown.

Cincinnati on upset alert

Start 2Q: East Carolina 3, No. 4 Cincinnati 0

Cincinnati made history on Tuesday night when it became the first team in the College Football Playoff era to be ranked in the CFP Top 4. The high from that monumental feat has worn off, because there's an upset brewing early in Greenville, North Carolina. The home-standing East Carolina Pirates lead the Bearcats 3-0 after one frame. Bearcats quarterback Desmond Ridder is 2 of 4 passing for just 24 yards, and they haven't been able to get the run game going at all.

Arkansas up early

Start 2Q: No. 25 Arkansas 3, Missouri 0

The Battle Line Rivalry has been an old-school slugfest early. Cam Little has the game's only points with a 36-yard field goal midway through the first period to give the home-standing Razorbacks the lead. Missouri is driving though thanks to a Trelon Smith fumble at the Arkansas 39-yard line. The Tigers recovered and converted a third-and-3 to get within field goal range.

Nebraska/Iowa tight in fourth

4Q: No. 19 Iowa 21, Nebraska 21

Nebraska took a 21-9 lead earlier, but Iowa has run back behind a series of big plays on defense and special teams to tie it up in the fourth quarter. The Cornhuskers blocked a punt and returned it for a touchdown, sacked Nebraska quarterback Logan Smothers for a safety and kicked a long field goal to tie the game. The 'Huskers just went 3-and-out again, giving Iowa the ball with 5:58 remaining and a chance to take the lead.

Texas gets first win since Oct. 2

FINAL: Texas 22, Kansas State 17

The six-game slide in Austin is finally over as the Longhorns survived Kansas State to finish the year 5-7. Running back Roschon Johnson put together the best game of his career with 31 carries for 179 yards and a touchdown in a five-point win. The Longhorns held the Wildcats to just 293 yards and 13 first downs. Running back Deuce Vaughn posted 143 yards and a touchdown. The win means Texas avoids the program's worst record since 1956.

Aztecs storm back

3Q: No. 21 SDSU 27, Boise State 16

Less than halfway into the second half, San Diego State has found its momentum. The Aztecs scored 14 points in fewer than two minutes behind a Hank Bachmeier interception to take an 11-point lead over the Broncos in the second half. Quarterback Jordon Brookshire completed a 27-yard pass to Jesse Matthews, who now has 134 yards and a score with more than 20 minutes remaining in the game.

Whoops

New Mexico football has been off the radar this season as the Lobos are 3-8 and have been a non-factor in the Mountain West. Apparently the head referee hasn't been paying much attention either. He called New Mexico its rival's name, New Mexico State, during Friday's contest against Utah State. The home fans let him have it. Hey, at least he owned it during the call.

CMU rolling in rivalry game

3Q: Central Michigan 17, Eastern Michigan 3

The Chippewas are dominating their rival behind another monster game from running back Lew Nichols III. Nichols has 106 yards early in the third quarter, good enough for more than half of CMU's total offense. The Eagles have mustered just 26 yards rushing. Both teams came into this game at 7-4.

SDSU on upset alert

HALF: Boise State 16, No. 21 San Diego State 13

San Diego State trails Boise State by three points at the half in a matchup featuring a pair of conference championship hopefuls. Broncos quarterback Hank Bachmeier threw for 174 yards and two touchdowns in the first half, while George Holani kept the chains moving with 61 on the ground. SDSU WR Jesse Matthews already has his first 100-yard performance of the season at the half.

Texas trails K-State at half

HALF: Kansas State 17, Texas 16

The Wildcats lead the Longhorns at the half in Austin on the back of a missed extra point by Cameron Dicker, the first such miss of the season. In reserve, running back Roschon Johnson has rushed for 82 yards and a touchdown. However, K-State running back Deuce Vaughn has 70 yards rushing, while quarterback Will Howard broke away for a 71-yard touchdown run in the second quarter. Texas quarterback Casey Thompson threw for 99 yards in the first half, but he appeared to suffer a head injury late in the second quarter. While he returned to the game briefly, the Longhorns are down to walk-on Ben Ballard behind Thompson if he can't play.

Longhorns are depleted

Texas quarterback Hudson Card, linebacker DeMarvion Overshown and running back Jonathan Brooks will all miss the Longhorns' finale against Kansas State. The losses mean Casey Thompson will start at quarterback, while the Longhorns will have to rely completely on backup running backs Roschon Johnson and Keilan Robinson against one of the better defenses in the Big 12. Starting running back Bijan Robinson was previously ruled out for the season with an elbow injury.
