Burrow, Edwards-Helaire Lead LSU Past Alabama, Minnesota Upsets Penn State, Baylor Skims Past TCU

Grace Higgins | November 10th, 2019

It was always going to be a big day in Tuscaloosa, and that’s exactly what it was on Saturday evening as the #2 LSU Tigers went on the road to defeat #3 Alabama 46-41 on the back of strong performances from both quarterback Joe Burrow and running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire. Burrow, now unquestionably the Heisman front runner, went 31 of 39 in the air for 393 yards and three touchdowns. He also had 64 yards rushing and a TD on the ground as well. Edwards-Helaire won’t get as much credit, but he gave the Tigers options on the day. He ran for over 100 yards and three TD’s and also made a touchdown grab of his own in the receiving department. Crimson Tide QB Tua Tagovailoa, off surgery on his ankle less than three weeks ago, completed just over half of his 40 passes (21) but still had 418 yards in the air. He limped off and on and clearly wasn’t feeling at his best, but it’s hard to make a statement that LSU only won because of that. In fact, it could have been worse had Tagovailoa not led Alabama back from a 33-13 deficit at half time. In the end, though, they had left themselves with too much to do. Burrow and co. were just too good, and they knocked off Bama for the first time in nine tries.

There was more than just one match up between ranked undefeated teams on Saturday in college football, believe it or not. In the ‘other,’ it was the #17 Minnesota Golden Gophers getting the upper hand over the #4 Penn State Nittany Lions by a score of 31-26 to see them throw themselves into the CFB Playoff mix. The win means Minnesota is 9-0 for the first time in well over a century, and it came courtesy of a strong day from QB Tanner Morgan, who was 18 of 20 in the air for over 300 yards and 3 TD’s. Penn State’s QB, Sean Clifford, struggled, throwing three interceptions, including one with just over a minute left in the end zone that ended their chances of taking a victory. Elsewhere, the Baylor Bears, ranked #12, narrowly avoided their first loss of the season as they overcame TCU 29-23 in triple overtime. Not a single TD was recorded in an ugly regulation, sending it to overtime with at 9-9. In fact, it took three Baylor field goals in a row, two of them in the fourth quarter, to even it up and force OT. Wide receiver Denzel Mims was the hero in OT, catching two TD’s and winning the game for the hopeful Bears.
