SMU And Florida Headline Week 6 Of College Football, Yankees Dominate Twins To Take 2-0 Lead, Cole Fans 15 Rays In Astros’ Game 2 Victory

Grace Higgins | October 6th, 2019

For another week of action in college football, there was very little to shock the system toward the upper end of the standings on Saturday. Georgia shook off a slow start to win, Oklahoma did the same, and Wisconsin rolled to a dominant win. That left SMU to lead the way for the week, with the No.24 ranked Mustangs improving their record to 6-0 thanks to a wild 43-37 victory in triple overtime. The Mustangs had fallen behind 30-9 after the third quarter and looked dead set on losing their undefeated status to Tulsa. But the Golden Hurricane ended up getting surprised as SMU scored three touchdowns in the final quarter to tie the game up and push it up into OT. Shane Buechele found wide receiver James Proche, who had 153 yards total and two TD’s on the night, for the winning grab. Elsewhere, the Florida Gators were the team that had the ‘best’ win as they remained undefeated by handing the Auburn Tigers their first loss of the season in a rare SEC battle. It was a tight ball game throughout, but in the fourth the Gators pulled away to take a 24-13 lead, a lead that they would not look bad from. The hero of the Swamp was running back Lamical Perine, who ran for an 88 yard TD in the fourth, part of a 130-yard day. The defense wasn’t too shabby, either, intercepting Bo Nix three times and allowing him to complete just 11 of 27 passes. Florida’s nightmare schedule continues next week when they go to LSU.

The New York Yankees are one win away from clinching their spot in the AL Championship Series after they hammered the hapless Minnesota Twins on Saturday evening to the tune of 8-2 at Yankee Stadium. After three innings, it was pretty much all over but the singing, too. That’s because, with a 3-0 lead already, Didi Gregorius stepped up with three ducks on the pond and smashed a Grand Slam home run to give them a 7-0 lead. Greg Gardner widened the deficit to eight just after, and the Twins only mustered two runs, one each in the fourth and ninth. That leaves them in a precarious spot as the series heads to Minnesota. They will need to win all three remaining games to have a chance.

Never one to be outdone, Gerritt Cole made sure to announce himself on the big stage as he dominated the Tampa Bay Rays last night in the Houston Astros’ 3-1 home win in Game 2 of their ALDS series. Cole, like Justin Verlander a night before, threw an absolute peach of a game. He struck out 15 batters over the course of seven innings and didn’t surrender a single run. That took full advantage of Alex Bregman’s solo home run, and singles that drove in runs from both Martin Maldonado and Carlos Correa. With a 3-0 deficit in the ninth inning, the Rays did load the bases and push one run across the plate, but it was not enough in the end. Like the Twins, the Rays now have to win three next three games in order to move into the ALCS.
