With none of college football's top five teams taking on ranked opponents, a lackluster Week 12 was expected. Instead, it was arguably the most thrilling week of the season.
Auburn's miraculous win over Georgia was the most dramatic moment and perhaps the best finish of the year.
UCF also provided a firework-filled ending, as the Knights remained a favorite for a BCS bid with an incredible finish against Temple. Michigan and Northwestern went to triple overtime to decide their battle, while Duke only needed regulation to post a program-changing win over Miami (Fla.).
USC brought the string of thrilling finishes into the night, as the Trojans converted a late fourth down to set up their 20-17 upset of No. 4 Stanford.
Elsewhere, Boston College's Andre Williams had a record-shattering effort on the ground, while Wisconsin and Ohio State also notched enormous rushing efforts.
