Week 4 had a lot of upset potential, though most of it didn’t end up happening unfortunately. Still, we learned a lot about many teams. Let’s recap!
Top Ten Games of the Week
10. Texas A&M 50-Arkansas 43
I don’t know what kind of deal Kevin Sumlin made with the dark forces to beat Arkansas in overtime every year, but it’s pretty hilarious. There’s not much to be said here, it’s not a referendum on either team, but it might have bought Sumlin some more time while making Bret Bielema’s tenure all the more tenuous.
Whew, folks, that was a heck of a first week. There were many, many exciting and games to watch and some of the best were saved for Sunday and Monday. Extra Week 1 treats. Unfortunately that’s all we get, the NFL will take over those days until the season is over.
Let’s get to recappin’ starting with the Top Ten.
The Top Ten Games of the Week
10. Maryland 51-#23 Texas 41
The first big upset of the weekend, Maryland came to Austin and totally upended the Longhorns. The Terps completely dominated Texas for the entire first half, if it wasn’t for defense and special teams the Horns wouldn’t have even scored in the first half. UT found a rhythm offensively in the third quarter, but the damage was already done. Maryland stayed a few scores ahead for the duration. It’s a disappointing start to Tom Herman’s career with Texas, which had seemed to promising. The Terrapins’ shocking performance should shine a little light on a program that has been in the shadows for a couple of years now. They probably still can’t compete in their division, but they’re clearly making progress.
I’m 21 and identify as nonbinary so they/them pronouns please! I’m from Colorado in the US 🇺🇸 I’m panromantic asexual and polyam! I’m looking for some ace friends or even a partner or two or three if we vibe! I’m pretty lame tho, just be warned. I’m into things like K-pop (NCT 127 owns my ass and I love them so much), anime, videogames, horror movies, poetry, cats, dancing (even tho I can’t dance rip), and comic books. As you can see from my selfies I love tie-dye shirts and such. I’m a shitty artist who designs tattoos when I’m bored, or plans alien races/worlds for books I’ll never write 😂 I tend to ramble a lot especially about subjects that interest me (read: anything gay, kpop, aliens, or memes). Anyway if you found any of this interesting message/follow me ❣️
