Jake Fromm was a little late to the after-party.

He was in the third and final wave of Georgia players leaping into the stands at the ”World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party.”

It was a fitting spot for Fromm considering how effective he’s been on third down against Florida.

Fromm threw for 279 yards and two touchdowns, including a 52-yarder to an uncovered Lawrence Cager in the fourth quarter, and the No. 8 Bulldogs beat the sixth-ranked Gators 24-17.

It was Georgia’s third consecutive victory in the Southeastern Conference rivalry and sixth in the last nine years.

Fromm was the main reason for the last two. He has five touchdown passes in two years against Florida, four coming on third down.


4-Straight Big Ten wins by Indiana, its longest conference streak since 1993.

12-Straight wins by No. 22 Kansas State over rival Kansas after a 38-10 victory.

691-Total yards by Boston College in a 58-27 win over Syracuse, breaking the school record.


The past month looked, and felt, so easy for No. 9 Utah. One blowout after another. No tests for the Utes to answer.

They knew traveling to Washington would be different, and they were right. The Utes were challenged; falling behind early and rallying late, and in doing so solidified their spot in the College Football Playoff conversation.

Tyler Huntley threw for one touchdown and ran for another, Jaylon Johnson returned an interception 39 yards for a score, and No. 9 Utah overcame an 11-point first-half deficit to beat Washington 33-28.

The Utes did their part in keeping pace in the Pac-12 South race and bolstered their CFP resume with a road win over a talented opponent in a place where it’s never come easy for Utah.
