We’ve only just embarked on college football’s fifth week but we’ve already seen a top 5 team go down. Washington State’s upset of USC on Friday night could be foreshadowing for crazy things to come on Saturday. Check back here all day for the best stuff.
New Heisman contender on the block?
Accurate to a Falk
Falk, who overcame getting sacked five times and his receivers dropping three passes, completed 10 of 12 passes in the fourth quarter for 90 yards and a touchdown.
Falk did most of his damage with short throws, completing 27 of 33 passes thrown 5 or fewer yards downfield for 183 yards and two touchdowns.
Washington State had 240 yards after the catch, the most USC has allowed in a game since 2014 (267 at UCLA). The Trojans allowed 81.0 yards after the catch per game in their first four games this season.

Iowa salute from 800 miles away
With Iowa playing away from Kinnick Stadium this week, College GameDay fills in to continue the tradition of waving to the kids at Iowa Stead Children’s Hospital.
Fans on the College GameDay set do the wave after Tom Rinaldi’s feature on the Iowa children’s hospital.
Do as I do
Ron Dayne is teaching the good people of Wisconsin how to properly strike the Heisman pose this morning. He’s back on campus finishing his degree and enjoying watching fellow New Jersey running back Jonathan Taylor put up some Dayne-like freshman stats so far this year.
