NCAAF Top 25 Scores and Record on Week 9

TEXAS (Sporting Alert) — Top 25 Results, scores and record after the college football Week 9 fixtures that took place on Saturday, Oct. 26.

The highlighted result in Week 9 came from the game of the week at Tiger Stadium in Baton Rouge, where No. 24 LSU upset the previously undefeated and No. 3 Ole Miss, 10-7, in a very defensive, but exciting game.

Anthony Jennings finished with 8 of 16 passes for 142 yards and two interception, but did dished out the key go-ahead scoring three yard pass to Logan Stokes to make what turned out to be the team’s winning touchdown.

LSU head coach Les Miles came into the game riding high on emotions, following the death of his mom less than 24 hours before the start of the game, but he wanted his team to play hard and not focus on his own feelings at that point.

“The concern that I had would be condolences and an outpouring of emotions and caring for each other could not exactly be what you want to go play a very violent, physical and competitive game,” said Miles.

He added though that: “After the game I can’t tell you the number of young men that threw their arms around me and told me, ‘Love you coach.’

“It is as touching as anything I have had happen.”

The win sees LSU improving to 7-2 on the season and 3-2 in SEC conference play, while Ole Miss, which dropped its first game of the season, is 7-1 and 4-1 in the SEC.

Elsewhere on Saturday, No. 1 Mississippi State remained undefeated, but had to battle hard for a 45-31 victory over a very determined Kentucky team.

At the Amon G. Carter Stadium, in Fort Worth, Trevone Boykin threw for a school-record seven touchdown passes and finished with 22 of 39 for 433 yards and No. 10 TCU hammered Texas Tech, 82-27.

The points tallied by TCU is the most in a Big 12 conference game, breaking the previous record of 77, set by Oklahoma in 2003 against Texas A&M.

The 82 points scored by the Horned Frogs are also the second-most in a game by a Big 12 team, with Oklahoma States 84 in 2012, still leading the way.

Other winners in Week 9 on Saturday were No. 22 West Virginia 34, over Oklahoma State 10, No. 8 Michigan State 35, cruised past rivals Michigan 11, while No. 4 Alabama 34, beat Tennessee 20 and No. 5 Auburn 42, defeated South Carolina 35.
