College Football's Top Plays: Week 13 - Friday

November 27, 2020

If you didn't get your football fill on Thanksgiving, there is plenty of college football to feast on the day after.

The day started with No. 13 Iowa State making history by defeating No. 17 Texas – and continued with No. 2 Notre Dame remaining undefeated after finishing No. 19 UNC.

Let's dig in.

Notre Dame is next level

The Fighting Irish continue to roll after a 31-17 victory over the Tar Heels, and Ian Book is 29-3 as the starter for ND.

Book can make textbook plays, and then also plays like this.

And on this one, Book made six out of nothing, avoiding disaster to put points on the board.

Classiest tradition in college football

The Hawkeyes started the 'Kinnick Wave,' a tradition where both teams wave to the children watching from the windows of the University of Iowa's Stead Family Children's Hospital that overlooks Kinnick Stadium at end of the first quarter.

Texas tricks fall short

In a closely fought battle, the Longhorns pulled out all the stops, but were stopped short of the first down on this play.

Texas quarterback Sam Ehlinger did all he could to push the Longhorns to victory, as he continously tossed bombs, including a 59-yarder to Brennan Eagles, bringing the ball inside the five for first-and-goal.

As well as this one for a 45-yard pickup.

But Iowa State made plays of its own, as tight end Shaun Beyer went up the seam and brought it down – fully extended – with just one hand.

Then the Cyclones found pay-dirt with Sean Shaw's scamper down the sideline with the extra-special spin move.

Iowa defense calls game

The Hawkeyes defense came in clutch, registering the sack, recovering the fumble, and locking up the 26-20 win.

And the Iowa defense made plays all day long, including a recovery of Cam Taylor-Britt's muffed punt.

The Trees' D

The Cardinal had it going on defense and special teams on Friday.

The muffed punt recovery was followed by a perfect peanut-punch.

Came for the sack, stayed for the celebration

Latrell Bankston brought the pressure on third-and-6, sacking Sam Ehlinger.

But Bankston didn't stop there, showing off his big-man flexibility.

Holy smokes, Simmons

UNC receiver Emery Simmons climbed the ladder in the corner for the dazzling touchdown catch.

Tyrone Tracy touchdown

Iowa quarterback Spencer Petras sent it six yards to a wide-open Tyrone Tracy Jr. for six.

Dicaprio Bootle with the pick

Spencer Petras got shifty in the pocket, but he didn't fool Nebraska's Dicaprio Bootle, who took it away at the Iowa 42-yard line.

Levi on the move

Wyoming quarterback Levi Williams put his big body to use on this run.

And the Cowboys ran over the Rebels to the tune of a 45-14 victory, despite plays from UNLV's Kyle Williams jaw-dropping, one-handed grab.

Conor Wedington has hands

Speaking of one-handed grabs, just check out the extension from Stanford's Conor Wedington.

Just how the Eagles drew it up

Central Michigan's Devonni Reed got a little help from a teammate's noggin on this one.

Jermar Jefferson makes house calls

Oregon State running back Jermar Jefferson waved goodbye to the Oregon defense for an 82-yard run to the end zone.
