The Saturday night games didn’t disappoint, as we saw top-10 action with #1 Clemson versus #7 Miami, and #2 Alabama against Ole Miss. Here is your Brawl Network late-game recap:

ACC

Miami has been rolling over their opponents on their way to a 3-0 record. Clemson came in the same way, but at the end of the night, these would be completely different teams.

Clemson played with the confidence of a thoroughbred about to race a quarter horse. While Miami seemed to play like they doubted if they belonged. The ease of which the Tigers played tonight proves that there’s them, and then the rest of the conference. Notre Dame might not even stand a chance when they play in a couple of weeks.

Stud QB D’Eriq King would look quite human Saturday night. He went 12-28 for 121 yards and 2 interceptions. King would, however, be the only Hurricane to gain more than 8 yards rushing, on his way to 84 yards and a touchdown on 14 carries.

Trevor Lawrence would be superb! He went 29-41 for 292 yards and 3 touchdowns through the air and would add a rushing score for good measure. Travis Etienne continued his journey to the Heisman with 149 yards and 2 scores on 17 carries and 8 catches for 74 yards through the air.

Silly mistakes plagued Miami throughout the game including one on the first drive of the night for Clemson. The Tigers went for it on fourth down and did not reach the line to gain, but an offside penalty would be enough to give Clemson a first down. They would score two plays later.

Undisciplined play throughout the night led to Clemson’s domination. But the Canes wouldn’t be the only ones to make bonehead decisions. At the end of the half, Tigers HC Dabo Swinney sent his kicker out to attempt a 61-yard field goal. The score at this time was 21-3 Clemson, but the kick would be blocked and the canes ran it back for a touchdown with zeros on the clock.

Clemson rolled to a 42-17 victory at home.

SEC

Saturday night was wrapped up by Alabama and Ole Miss locked in a dance that would last over 3 quarters. The Crimson Tide rolled into Oxford 2-0 ranked 2nd in the country. Ole Miss was 1-1, coming off an overtime victory against Kentucky. Not many people believed the youth of the Rebels could match the experience of Bama. But in the middle of the 4th quarter, we were knotted at 42.

Alabama QB Mac Jones would have another stellar outing throwing for 417 yards on 28-32 passing and two touchdowns. Even so, the man of the night would be RB Najee Harris. The Tide rusher would end with 206 yards on 23 carries and five touchdowns. Yes, five. Including the 39-yard score to put the game on ice.

Rebels QB Matt Corral would also have an incredible night, 21-28 with 365 yards and two touchdowns. Just like Alabama, Ole Miss would also have a big night on the ground. Snoop Connor and Jerrion Ealy would both had 100+ nights, accounting for four of the Rebel scores.

This game also had some of the better WRs showing off their skills, as the Ole Miss duo of Kenny Yeboah, and Elijah Moore had great nights. Yeboah ended with 180 yards on 7 catches, and two touchdowns. While Moore had 11 catches and 143 yards. Alabama’s DeVonte Smith would have 11 catches and 163 yards plus a score. Jaylen Waddle added 6 catches and 120 yards.

These two teams were at each other’s throats all night, but the more-experienced Crimson Tide would come away the winner, 63-48.
