In the first half it looked like another Top 5 team would bite the dust as Ole Miss dominated Florida State offensively and defensively. But the Seminoles regrouped, settled into their routine, and ran their game plan to perfection in the second half en-route to a 45-34 win over Mississippi in Orlando. The game capped off a topsy turvy wacky (and very exciting) Labor Day weekend slate of games that saw Oklahoma and LSU both fall to other Top 26 opponents. The Sooners were stunned 33-23 on the road by #10 Houston and LSU was surprised 16-14 on the road by #26 Wisconsin. Both the Sooners and the Tigers remained in this week’s Top 15. The win for Houston jumped the Cougars all the way to #4 in this week’s Billingsley Report.
In the weekend’s most surprising and entertaining game, Texas outlasted Notre Dame 50-47 in two overtimes Sunday Night.
The Billingsley+ and Billingsley Personal Reports will be posted Wednesday by Noon along with the Week #3 projections.
