Around The Conference Table: Week 7
Exiting the Chat
This season we go around our writers for their takes on the other conference games that went on in gameweek.
USC @ Utah (Utah wins 43-42)
TD_24 - What an absolute hell of a game. I may have gotten some looks after screaming at the Denver Airport but what a game from both sides.
Piotr T Le - Cal lost, Niners lost, KC Lost, Stanford won, but SC lost so I put this as the highlight of my weekend. Also Liverpool won against Man. City! #LFC
Christopher_h - In the midst of a terrible weekend of college football, Utah showed that there is still some good left in the world.
Rob Hwang - I think this is the first game in conference play that played out PRETTY MUCH exactly how I expected it to.
Arizona @ Washington (Washington wins 49-39)
TD_24 - Points you say? Washington's offense scares the ever living crap out of me.
Piotr T Le - So you're saying we have a chance? As long as the OL can evolve? Not sure, UW is showing weaknesses but explosive offense with a scrappy outlook.
Christopher_h - A battle of the top 2 passing offenses in the conference, but UW's offensive line gave UW the edge. Arizona just couldn't cover anyone, while UW's corners did just a tiny bit better than that.
Rob Hwang - So we know UW’s passing offense is good. We know Arizona’s passing offense is good…so….
Stanford @ Notre Dame (Stanford wins 16-14)
TD_24 - Just....how? Like seriously how did the Irish manage to throw this one.
Piotr T Le - Goddamnit ND, you had one job. One. Job. I see Freeman's catholic winning streak ends in the worst opponent ever.
Christopher_h - Fumble. Luck.
Rob Hwang - Well… They should’ve just let us win then.
Washington State @ Oregon State (Oregon State wins 24-10)
TD_24 - This game honestly surprised me the most. I figured Cam Ward would make a lot of plays on the ground to uplift Wazzu over Oregon State but it wasn't the case. Trent Bray has the Beavers defense looking solid and Jonathon Smith has Reser looking up.
Christopher_h - The Wazzu receivers were just not helping QB Cam Ward at all, and the offense looked off all night. OSU's offense isn't as good without Chance Nolan, but they can rely on a strong run game and solid lines to keep things going.
Rob Hwang - If it’s not us competing… let Oregon state win the conference this year.
Any other thoughts?
TD_24 - Thank goodness Cal wasn't the nightcap game otherwise I don't know if I would've ever slept it off. I still don't think I've slept it off.
Piotr T Le - At least I was raised in Poland so I am used to disappointing sports but goddamn Cal.
Christopher_h - Is it better to have loved and lost than to have never loved Cal football at all?
Rob Hwang - Well at least basketball is back… wait.
