Week 5 of the college football season was filled with a little bit of everything.
Fans were treated to thrilling upsets, come-from-behind victories, and plenty of jaw-dropping stats along the way.
The day kicked off with unranked TCU cruising to an impressive 55-24 win over No. 18 Oklahoma. The Horned Frogs totaled 668 yards of offense against an Oklahoma team that looked like a national title contender just two weeks ago.
Later, No. 1-ranked Georgia rallied from 10 points down in the fourth quarter to beat Missouri, 26-22. The defending national champs trailed until the 4:03 mark, when Daijun Edwards plunged into the end zone for the go-ahead score.
Other notable upsets from Saturday included Ole Miss‘ 22-19 win over No. 7 Kentucky, Mississippi State‘s 42-24 victory over No. 17 Texas A&M, Purdue’s 20-10 triumph over No. 21 Minnesota, and Georgia Tech‘s stunning win over No. 24 Pitt.
With so many upsets, there were plenty of eye-popping stats to help capture the breadth of this fun-filled day. Here are 10 must-see stats and facts from Week 5.
No. 14 Ole Miss seals upset of No. 7 Kentucky
The Ole Miss Rebels defeated the Kentucky Wildcats after a game-sealing play by Jared Ivey and Tavius Robinson.
TCU put on an offensive clinic in the first half, totaling 479 yards of offense. That marked the highest offensive output by any team in a single half this season.
Saturday marked the sixth win Purdue has had over an AP-ranked opponent since Jeff Brohm became the program’s head coach in 2017. In the 10 seasons prior to Brohm’s arrival, the Boilermakers went 2-25 against ranked opponents.
Former Wisconsin coach Bret Bielema and his Illinois Fighting Illini came into Camp Randall and ran all over the Badgers. The 34-10 loss marked the largest home defeat for Wisconsin since 2008, when it lost to Penn State, 48-7.
Chase Brown dashes for long TD
Chase Brown broke away for a 49-yard touchdown run to give Illinois a 31-10 lead over Wisconsin.
Rutgers jumped out to an early 7-0 lead against Ohio State, which marked the first time the Scarlet Knights have ever held a lead against the Buckeyes in nine matchups. Ohio State tied the game less than two minutes later and scored 28 unanswered points.
Despite losing reigning Heisman Trophy winner Bryce Young to a shoulder injury, Alabama still looked near-unstoppable on the offensive side of the ball, cruising to the win over No. 20 Arkansas. Nick Saban is now 16-0 against the Razorbacks, including a win from the vacated 2007 season.
Texas A&M’s offensive struggles continued Saturday as the Aggies managed just 10 points through three quarters. The 109 points Texas A&M has scored so far are its lowest total through its first five games in 30 years.
Clemson has now won 37 straight home games, the longest active home winning streak in the country.
