Iowa 27, Minnesota 19: I’m hoping that the three surviving members of Led Zeppelin will agree to hold a reunion concert at Kinnick Stadium on the same day when these border rivals next face each other in Iowa City.

Alabama 28, Mississippi State 17: Nick Saban celebrates the victory by rubbing onions on his hang nails.
Stanford 34, Oregon 31: The Stanford players rub it in afterwards by reminding the Oregon players that they’re also a lot smarter as a group.
