Crazy Sports Weekend Ends With Upsets And Nailbiters Aplenty
First off, we all know I’m a sports fanatic. Sports rule. Let’s recap all the craziness that unfolded this weekend, including three huge college football upsets.
Capping off the weekend was the upset of Wisconsin getting put away soundly by Oregon State. The Badgers of Madison went to Corvallis to take on Oregon State’s Beavers and the possible Pac-12 sleeper knocked off the 13th team in the land 10-7.
The next two upsets were, in my opinion some better games. The University of Louisiana-Monroe waltzed on in to Little Rock, Arkansas and delivered a mind-boggling defeat to the eighth-ranked Razorbacks. Junior Quarterback Kolton Browning ran a 19-yard touchdown in Overtime to seal the deal and shock the SEC and nation, alike. The other upset is a little closer to home, as the Oklahoma State Cowboys got a taste of their own medicine against the Arizona Wildcats. The game was on upset alert in the first half, but the Cowboys looked to regain a shot at putting the Wildcats away in the second half. However, the Wildcats put up 22 points in the fourth quarter to secure an upset of the 18th team in the country.
In other news, NASCAR had an exciting final race before the Chase for the Sprint Cup, as Jeff Gordon beat out Kyle Busch for the 12 and final wild card position. Clint Bowyer took the checkered flag, and he will also be a contender for the championship.
The NFL had some pretty good games, and I liked the game between the 49er’s and the Packers. It was pandemonium, basically due to the replacement referees. The Niners put the Pack away 30-22 at Lambeau Field.
Honestly, I can’t wait to see what unfolds this weekend. I’m excited to see what college football upsets are in store in the third week of regular season play, plus I’m looking forward to see who makes the most improvements in the NFL. Check out the post next week to see what I think.
