Here are the top plays from Saturday’s Week 11 slate.

Maryland at No. 14 Penn State 

Nittany Lions on the board

Penn State QB Sean Clifford took the snap, rolled to his right, and fired a touchdown pass to tight end Brenton Strange.

Old style football

Penn State had three players lined up in the backfield on a fourth-and-1, and Nicholas Singleton took the sweep and hit the jets for a 45-yard touchdown to put his team up 14-0. 

Putting the team on his back!

The Nittany Lions called the same play on another fourth-and-1, as Singleton ran into the end zone for a 27-yard score to go up 21-0. 

Penalizing yourself

James Franklin was called for a penalty, so he did pushups on the sideline as a form of discipline. 

No. 9 Alabama at No. 11 Ole Miss 

Ole Miss strikes 

Ole Miss running back Quinshon Judkins got the Rebels on the board first with this 1-yard touchdown run. With the score, Judkins has now scored in eight straight games, which ties the school record for rushing touchdowns in a season.

What was going on here?

An apparent miscommunication led to Alabama turning the ball over on fourth-and-1 in its own territory, leaving Nick Saban frustrated. 

On the dot

Bryce Young’s short pass found its way through the tight window to Jermaine Burton for a 19-yard touchdown, putting Alabama on the board.

Wildcat touchdown

Judkins took the direct snap from the wildcat formation and ran right up the gut for the 1-yard score to put Ole Miss up 17-7.

Scoring on the sunnyside 

Tight end Cameron Latu got open over the middle and hauled in a touchdown pass from Young to make it a 17-14 game going into halftime. 

Scoring with ease

Jonathan Mingo couldn’t have asked for an easier touchdown, catching a screen pass at the 3-yard line before getting into the end zone with ease to put Ole Miss up 24-17 in the third. 

Bryce magic

Alabama’s star QB scrambled around to buy some time before finding Ja’Corey Brooks in the end zone for a 5-yard touchdown pass to tie the game at 24-24 in the final minutes of the third quarter. 

FINAL: No. 2 Ohio State 56, Indiana 14

Buckeyes strike first

Is there a better wide receiver dup in college football than Ohio State’s Marvin Harrison Jr. and Emeka Egbuka? Simple answer … no. Egbuka got the Buckeyes on the board first in this one with a 6-yard touchdown catch, giving Ohio State an early 7-0 lead.

C.J. Stroud passed to Emeka Egbuka for a six-yard touchdown to lead Indiana 7-0

C.J. Stroud passed to Emeka Egbuka for a six-yard touchdown. Ohio State Buckeyes lead the Indiana Hoosiers 7-0 early in the first quarter.

Hayden all the way

Dallan Hayden made it look easy on his 14-yard touchdown run to extend Ohio State’s lead to 14-0 in the first quarter.

Three TDs to start

After throwing a touchdown pass to Egbuka, C.J. Stroud threw a 58-yard touchdown pass to Harrison to give Ohio State its third touchdown of the first quarter and a 21-0 lead. 

Big boy grab

AJ Barner climbed the ladder and reached up to haul in the 7-yard touchdown to get Indiana on the board. 

Peace out!

Miyan Williams negated Indiana’s touchdown by hitting the gas to score a 48-yard touchdown to give Ohio State a 28-7 lead. 


Even after getting hurt, Williams had to throw up an O-H as he was carted off the field.

How’d he catch that?

Harrison made an unreal sideline grab, stretching out his right leg to get his foot down and secure the catch. 

Add another

Stroud threw his third touchdown of the day early in the second half to extend the Buckeyes lead to 35-7.

FINAL: West Virginia 23, Oklahoma 20

Going the other way

Oklahoma’s defense came up with a huge play early on as Danny Stutsman picked off JT Daniels on the Mountaineers’ first possession.

Defense all day

Oklahoma’s defense forced another turnover as West Virginia’s Justin Johnson fumbled and Sooners defensive tackle Jordan Kelley recovered it.

Finally a touchdown

Eric Gray scored the game’s first touchdown, running in for a 12-yard score to give the Sooners a 10-0 lead late in the first half.

Mountaineers strike quickly

Less than a minute after Oklahoma’s touchdown, West Virginia got on the board when QB Garrett Greene ran it in himself for the score.

However …

PAT goes the other way

West Virginia bobbled the PAT and Oklahoma took advantage, scooping and scoring for two points right before the half! 

Have some wheat with that!

Bryce Ford-Wheaton won the jump ball and secured the touchdown grab to give the Mountaineers a one-point lead in the third. 

Gray all day

The Oklahoma running back powered through West Virginia’s front to get the score, which was his second touchdown of the day. The Sooners got the two-point conversion, too, to take a 20-13 lead.

Fake for the first

West Virginia executed the fake punt just well enough, securing a first down on the run by a matter of inches. 

Greene ahead

West Virginia’s QB ran for his second touchdown of the day, getting to the outside corner and beating Oklahoma’s defenders for the score to tie the game at 20-20 in the fourth.

Legg’s got the leg

It didn’t look pretty, but West Virginia kicker Casey Legg’s 25-yard field goal went through the uprights to give the Mountaineers the upset win.
