2020 College Football Week 12 Summary

For those who noticed the absence of our Week 11 summary, much of this had to do with the numerous games postponed due to the many programs affected by COVID-19 outbreaks. Week 12 presented more of a balance, as many of these affected schools returned to action. As we reach the final weeks of the season, the outcome of this unpredictable season is still unknown to all of us.


What Did We Learn In Week 12 ?

  • Alabama's contest against Kentucky went as expected, a thorough domination by Alabama. From the opening snap until the final whistle, Kentucky was completely out of their league against Mac Jones and company. Frankly speaking, they deserve some credit for even showing up. Alabama 7-0, Kentucky 3-5

  • Oklahoma State prided themselves in having arguably the top defensive unit in the Big 12 Conference. Then again, they never faced a quarterback like Spencer Rattler. Oklahoma beat them in convincing fashion, giving them their sixth straight win in the 'Bedlam' rivalry. Oklahoma 6-2, Oklahoma State 5-2

  • Even in defeat, Indiana showed that they are capable of competing against any team in the Big Ten Conference, and potentially any team in the nation. As for Ohio State quarterback Justin Field, it is becoming apparent that he is ready for NFL-level competition. Indiana 4-1, Ohio State 4-0

  • JT Daniels' debut for the Georgia was a revelation for a team that struggled to produce offensively under former starter Stetson Bennett. It kind of makes you wonder how much greater this team could have been if they started him in the first place. Nonetheless, Georgia's offense is exponentially better with Daniels as their starter. Mississippi State 2-5, Georgia 5-2.

  • Oregon is arguably the most balanced team in the Pac-12 Conference. If one had to pick a team to represent this conference in the National Championship playoffs, this team led by quarterback Tyler Shough would be your best bet. UCLA 1-2, Oregon 3-0

  • Cincinnati had their first true test against quarterback Dillon Gabriel and his UCF Knights. One thing we learned is how similar in style and equally matched both teams were. Though Cincinnati escaped with a victory, UCF showed they were unlike any team Cincinnati has played against this season. UCF 5-3, Cincinnati 8-0

  • We have to admit, when Northwestern plays, it is not pretty to watch. They are as close to old-school style football team (defense and running the football), as you will find during the era of spread offenses. Speaking of defense, Northwestern's defensive unit is a potent as any in the nation. Northwestern 5-0, Wisconsin 2-1

  • Coastal Carolina is good, scary good. Are they a top ten team? At this point they're not quite there yet, but they are dangerously close. Coastal Carolina 8-0, Appalachian State 6-2

  • Running back Jaret Patterson of the Buffalo Bulls did something that few in his position have been able to; rush for over 300 yards in a game. Against Bowling Green, he rushed for a school record 301 yards and four touchdowns. When all is said and done, he should be recognized as the best player to ever come out of that program; even greater than Khalil Mack. Buffalo 3-0, Bowling Green 0-3

  • For a short while, it seemed that Vanderbilt was on the verge of pulling off the biggest upset of the season against Florida. Well, that possibility was quickly erased in the second half, as quarterback Kyle Trask picked apart the Vanderbilt defense and came away with the victory. If anything can be said about Florida, their secondary is an area of concern. Florida 6-1, Vanderbilt 0-7

  • Before the half, quarterback Zach Wilson and his BYU Cougars had already posted 42 points. In short, North Alabama had no chance of winning this contest, and Wilson may have solidified his first-round status with his dominant performance. BYU 9-0, North Alabama 0-4.

  • Stopping Liberty's run offense has proven to be no easy task for any opponent this season. On this day however, NC State was committed in doing and handed Liberty their first loss of the season. Liberty 8-1, NC State 6-3
