Texas: Officially NOT back

Perhaps the Longhorns should have known it wasn't their day when QB Sam Ehlinger threw this pick right before halftime.


La'Kendrick Van Zandt’s interception leads to TCU extending lead over Texas before halftime

TCU Horned Frog safety La'Kendrick Van Zandt intercepts pass from Texas Longhorns quarterback Sam Ehlinger, runs it to the 5-yard line. The interception led to a TCU field goal just before half time.

The good news for the Longhorns? The Horned Frogs were only able to convert a field goal off the turnover. The bad news? Well...

For the rest of the story, relive TCU's shocking win over Texas as a +300 underdog here:

Another Big 12 upset

No. 9 Texas fell first, but they weren't alone in the conference.

For the second week in a row, Oklahoma fell victim to an unranked opponent.

As big of a blow as it was for the Sooners, the win was downright historic for Iowa State.

SEC domination

SEC powers Alabama and Georgia flexed their muscles against ranked opponents in different ways this week.

The Crimson Tide's John Metchie III announced his arrival to the college football landscape against No. 12 Texas A&M.

While Georgia kept Auburn flustered all night, keeping the No. 7 ranked Tigers out of the end zone.

The defense was still getting warmed up

Pitt WR Jordan Addison was wiiiiiide open downfield for an easy 75-yard TD.

Welcome to the circus

This has our vote for catch of the day.

Or maybe it's this one

Andrew Booth is making a name for himself with interceptions like this, but it's hard not to see the resemblance to a certain wide receiver for the Cleveland Browns.

Trickery in Baton Rouge

That's an oops

Word of advice: make sure you've outrun the defender before you say goodbye.

Dart into double coverage

What execution by Florida Gators QB Kyle Trask to WR Trent Whittemore.

No trouble in traffic for this receiver.

Refs get a taste of the action

Apparently, you don't have to be a player to taste the turf on Saturdays. 

The play that pulls on the heartstrings

Near or far, Boston College still felt the support of its families ahead of today's matchup.

Breaking records

Florida tight End Kyle Pitts is out here scoring touchdowns, shredding record books ...

... and turning heads.

A Gator's got to eat

Nothing was stopping Florida WR Kadarius Toney – including five defenders – from taking this 57-yard reception all the way to the house.

One-handed picks will never get old

What it says on the label, really.

Bold strategy

Tackling your own player is usually not the best course of action.

First time for everything

Scoring your first career touchdown while simultaneously taking the lead in a big game hah to be an amazing feeling for Myles Price.

Becoming a household name

The rest of the country might not have been familiar with SMU wide reciever Reggie Roberson before today, but after 243 yards and two touchdowns against No. 25 Memphis, they'll want to take note.

Good luck trying to bring down Travis Etienne

Three Virginia defenders tried, and all three failed on his touchdown run.

Trickery in Baton Rouge

A perfectly executed flea flicker has to be one of the most exciting plays in football, right?

Here are a few final scores from across the country as Week 5 winds down.
