Some great action in college football. #1 Alabama was stunned by Texas A&M, snapping the Tide win streak at 19. It was Alabama’s first loss vs. an unranked team after 100 straight wins in that scenario. Jimbo Fisher became the first former-Nick Saban assistant to beat the Tide coach. A winning field goal by Seth Small was the difference.
Iowa’s defense did a great job against Penn State. The Hawkeyes were aided by a great home crowd as the 12th man led to a number of Penn State penalties. Georgia looked great in a win over Auburn. Oklahoma rallied from a 38-20 halftime deficit to beat Texas in the Red River Shootout. Mississippi won a shootout over Arkansas.
There were several wild NFL games. The Packers-Bengals battle saw five missed field goal in the fourth quarter and overtime before Mason Crosby kicked the winner. The Patriots rallied to beat the Texans. The Jaguars and Lions remained winless.
Tyson Fury retained his share of the heavyweight title by KO over Deontay Wilder in Las Vegas. It was a wild fight with lots of action and knockdowns.
