The featured match-up and vicious rivalry between the Florida Gators and Georgia Bulldogs was anything but a contest.  The state of Georgia was psyched for this annual battle — one county even canceled school for it.  But Florida came into Athens, GA and took…care…of…business.  It was all Florida all the time.  Last year’s Heisman QB, Tim Tebow, accounted for, count ’em, 5 TOUCHDOWNS.  2 passing, and three rushing.  And Florida shut down Georgia’s two stars.  Georgia’s QB, and front-running Heisman candidate, Matt Stafford threw 3 interceptions, and their NFL-bound Running Back, Knowshon Moreno, ran for a paltry 65 yards.  Now, Florida’s National Championship hopes are still very much alive — and Georgia’s… not so much.  Florida 49, Georgia 10.

The #2 Alabama Crimson Tide continued to roll, crushing Arkansas St. 35-0, and #5 USC annihilated Washington by more than 50 points.  Washington currently has coaching question marks, and this blow comes as no surprise, while USC still has their eyes set on playing in the National Championship Game.

And in the saddest news of college football Saturday, the Michigan Wolverines, one of the most historically prestigious college football programs in the country, have sealed their first losing season since 1967.  They lost to Purdue 48-42.  This is frustrating news for die-hard Michigan fans around the country, who always looked forward to bragging rights every fall.  This program needs to make a turn around, and soon.


Finally, in the NFL, a little good news for the winless Detroit Lions.  They signed retired Quarterback Daunte Culpepper to a 2 year deal.  Culpepper has been a sub-par QB the last couple of years for both the Dolphins and Raiders, but everyone still remembers his glory days in Minnesota, throwing long-bomb touchdowns to Randy Moss.  Well, now Culpepper has another wickedly talented wide-receiver in Calvin Johnson.  The Lions playoff hopes might be dead, but we could see some very exciting highlights from them in the remaining weeks of the season.
