The previously unbeaten Temple Owls fell against Notre Dame in a prime-time game on national television at a sold-out stadium in Philadelphia. It wasn’t the outcome the Owls desired, but hey, Temple football was in a game against Notre Dame, and were leading at one point. That’s sort of a win, right? While most eyes were centered on the only, if somewhat unlikely, game between ranked opponents, those who tuned into the Duke-Miami contest were in for a real treat — assuming they stuck around till the end. In arguably the most insane final, lateral-filled, sequence to college football game — yes, Cal-Stanford, we hear you — the Hurricanes defeated the No. 22 Blue Devils on a last-second touchdown play.

Jakeem Grant wasted no time in getting Texas Tech’s game vs. Oklahoma State off to a fast start: 190 all-purpose yards on his first two touches. But that was hardly all from the highest-scoring game of the season. … It appeared Clemson and N.C. State might try to keep up — for the first five minutes, anyway. … Check out the festive helmets on Boise State.

This rather sad slate of games might be epitomized by Louisville-Wake, where the Cardinals won despite producing only 108 yards in the second half and despite turning five Demon Deacons turnovers into just three points. Here’s hoping you had something better to do with your Friday night.

After West Virginia’s previous game, in which Baylor star Corey Coleman caught 10 passes for 199 yards and three touchdowns, Mountaineers Coach Dana Holgorsen called the wide receiver “the best player in college football. … You can put me on the record for that.” After TCU quarterback Trevone Boykin lit his team up for 472 total yards and four touchdowns on Thursday,  according to the Associated Press, Holgorsen opened his postgame comments by telling reporters, “With all due respect to Corey Coleman, Trevone Boykin is the best player in college football.” …

North Carolina moved to 7-1, its best start since 1997, and would take command of the ACC Coastal Division with a win vs. Duke next week. That, by the way, stands a good chance of being the first Victory Bell game played with both teams nationally ranked since 1939, according to the News & Observer.
