Week 11 brought plenty of excitement, including Lamar Jackson's jersey retirement at Louisville and a pair of Big 12 upsets against Oklahoma and Texas, both of whom are leaving the conference for the SEC. No. 13 Baylor upset No. 8 Oklahoma 27-14, and Kansas (yes, 1-8 Kansas) beat Texas in overtime. In Austin.
Miami and Florida State once again showed their true feelings for one another in a game with a bizarre ending, and Tennessee's stars came out for a homecoming that was promptly spoiled by Georgia -- all before the night games even kicked off.
Touchdown of the day
This is just an incredible Hail Mary. It was tipped multiple times!
Well first, Baylor fans rushed the field a little too early in the Bears' upset of Oklahoma.

Why? Because Baylor decided to kick an extra field goal.

So they got to do it all over again.

Meanwhile, in Austin ...
When you've lost 56 straight conference road games, of course you go for it. Rock Chalk.
Yes, those were real scores at one point
For a brief moment, college football went off the rails.
And a couple safeties gave Old Dominion a total of 4 points.
i think this is the first time in my lifetime i've ever seen an american football team have four points for any amount of time https://t.co/fSeWdXl9h5— Jon Bois (@jon_bois) November 13, 2021
Well, well, well, what do we have here? UConn with a brief lead over Clemson? And a high-five en route to the touchdown? We love to see it.

If you're not listening to Taylor Swift and watching college football, then what else are you doing?
Pitt got an OT win vs. North Carolina in the pouring rain and was appropriately excited about it.
Who left Josh Vann alone with this amount of time for not just a nap but some golf and a FaceTime call, among some other chores. We'll see if it happens again this weekend.

Good for Mercer for managing to pull this off.
Things got a little heated between Florida State and Miami.
But Florida State ended up with the win.

Please give us any and all big-man TDs.
