'That Just Happened' in this week of college football
Oct 26, 2013 at 8:49p ET
Give the man a mulligan: Not much went right for Vanderbilt in its loss to Texas A&M on Saturday, but quarterback Patton Robinette's quick kick went especially wrong. He got nice height on the ball, but the punt checked in at a rousing five yards, giving Texas A&M the ball at midfield. Why not let him try again? It's only fair.
Pay attention!: Northern Illinois' Jordan Lynch is doing everything he can to get noticed nationally. He rushed for 316 yards against Central Michigan last week, and on Saturday, he became the first player since Boo Jackson in 2010 to record a passing, rushing and receiving touchdown in the same game. What more does he need to do for the undefeated Huskies?
Save that for the scrapbook: Jayson Carter has worked on the scout team at Rice for two seasons and finally got his first carry on Saturday. Oh yeah, and he's 4-foot-9. He weighs in at 135 pounds and is college football's smallest player.
