The Best Images from College Football Week 14
With bowl game berths and conference championships on the line, Week 14's slate of games produced moments that college football players around the nation will never forget.
The SEC championship game was the marquee matchup on the weekend, and it undoubtedly lived up to its billing. Alabama won in an incredible game, and while the Big Ten, Big 12 and ACC championship games did not offer as much excitement, Wisconsin, Kansas State and Florida Sate fans all enjoyed themselves.
But the action started Thursday when Louisville bested Rutgers to secure a sport in a BCS bowl game, and the thrills continued into Friday night as the Pac-12 and MAC championships produced thrilling contests.
Stanford is Rose Bowl bound while Kent State has fallen short of a shocking BCS bid.
Here are the best images from all of these fantastic games.
Bama Ready to Go Back-to-Back
The showdown between No. 2 Alabama and No. 3 Georgia will not be forgotten anytime soon, and the Crimson Tide came out on top in a wild game. The most talked-about play from the first half came when Alabama's Quentin Dial blindsided Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray and somehow was not penalized for this hit.
Seminoles Squeak By Yellow Jackets
No. 13 Florida State won the ACC as expected, but Georgia Tech made sure the Seminoles had to work for a spot in the Orange Bowl. FSU's James Wilder Jr. had two second-quarter touchdowns and helped build a big lead.
Big Ten Blowout
Wisconsin started fast against Nebraska and did not let up until they had roses in their teeth. Montee Ball had three of the Badgers' 10 touchdowns in the 70-31 rout.
Wildcats Coast Into Fiesta Bowl
The Big 12 has no conference championship game, but the conference's teams still had to finish up their schedule. The marquee match was No. 18 Texas taking on No. 6 Kansas State, and Collin Klein made one final Heisman push by accounting for three touchdowns.
UCLA faced off with Stanford for the second time in six days, and once again, the Cardinal came out on top. This time, it was a much closer contest with significantly higher stakes.
The Bruins looked to be the better team early and were driving towards a two-touchdown lead, but an Ed Reynolds interception and long return flipped this game on its head.
Battle for the Big East
While many college football fans would argue that no Big East team deserves to be in a BCS bowl, supporters at this game cared little and were completely aware of what was on the line.
Kent State Can't Cut It
Kent State was on the verge of cracking the Top 16 in the BCS standings, and that would have booked them a spot in a BCS bowl. Northern Illinois now has a chance to break that threshold, and the players held out hope after their 44-37 victory.
