    Games In Order From Best To Worst

    Tulane at Army

    Final Score: Tulane 34, Army 31
    Pick: Army 27, Tulane 17
    Line: Army -2.5, o/u: 46

    Andrew DiRocco nailed a 35-yard field goal as time ran out to give the Green Wave the win. Army tied it on an 11-yard Edgar Poe touchdown catch with just under two minutes to play, but Tulane went 59 yards in nine plays for the win. Tulane rolled out to a 28-7 lead helped by a 90-yard Teddy Veal touchdown catch and a 48-yard fumble return for a score from Parry Nickerson, but Army roared back with a blocked punt for a touchdown and two Ahmad Bradshaw touchdown passes before the final Tulane drive. Army held the ball for 37:38, but couldn’t control the clock late.

    Player of the Game: Tulane DT Tanzel Smart made nine tackles with two tackles for loss and a forced fumble.

    BYU vs. Missouri (in Kansas City)

    Final Score: Missouri 20, BYU 16
    Pick: Missouri 16, BYU 13
    Line: BYU -6.5, o/u: 43

    A wild, crazy, and historic week for Missouri football ended with a desperately needed win. The Tigers got a four-yard touchdown catch from J’Mon Moore in the fourth quarter to take the lead, and got a one-yard Tyler Hunt scoring three minutes later to push ahead for good. BYU stayed alive with a six-yard Francis Bernard touchdown catch, but that would be it. The Cougars had one more drive, had to punt, and couldn’t get the ball back. Missouri’s struggling offense came up with 434 yards and hung on to the ball for over 39 minutes.

    Player of the Game: Missouri RB Russell Hansbrough ran 26 times for 117 yards

    Wake Forest at Notre Dame

    Final Score: Notre Dame 28, Wake Forest 7
    Pick: Notre Dame 41, Wake Forest 13
    Line: Notre Dame -27, o/u: 51

    Notre Dame got up 21-0 going into halftime with Josh Adams tearing off a backbreaking 98-yard touchdown run, DeShone Kizer running for a 12-yard score, and Andrew Trumbetti taking an interception for a score. Wake Forest finally got on the board late in the third with John Wolford running for a one-yard score, but the Irish pit it well out of reach on a five-yard Kizer run. The Irish only gained 242 yards outside of the Adams run.

    Player of the Game: Notre Dame RB Josh Adams ran 17 times for 141 yards and a score.
