Week 5 of college football is among us, and we have a jam-packed schedule of games to look forward to, as well as some significant victories.
Cincinnati, in particular, defeated Notre Dame for their first-ever top-10 road victory. In overtime, Stanford defeated No. 3 Oregon. Georgia blanked Arkansas 27-0, while Michigan was on a roll against Wisconsin, winning 38-17. In a 42-21 victory against Ole Miss, Alabama took care of business. However, there is still enough of daylight and much more night for some spectacular events to take place.
Check out all of the results, reactions, and celebrations from across the country.

It’s all in good fun…
What do you do after you defeat the country’s No. 3 team? That’s right, you create a meme. Stanford defeated Oregon at home and had a great time doing it.

Cincinnati defeated Notre Dame, yet the Bearcats had their doubts.
I’m just thankful for the chance. @CoachBrianKelly, thank you!

Arkansas is known for its creative postgame tweets, but because the Razorbacks didn’t score any points, this was the best they could do.
This is the last tweet with the final score.

What we’re taking away from this is that SMU has excellent marketing. If you will, call it seizing the moment.
SMU’s “Born and Raised” campaign has utilized billboards featuring local athletes in various areas of D-FW for the last three years.

What are your chances?
According to ESPN’s Win Probability Model, Stanford had a 0.1 percent chance of beating Oregon with 1:51 remaining in the fourth quarter. What’s more, guess what?

UGA has a beautiful sideline setup, and we’re a little envious.
While @GeorgiaFootball is on top, UGA is chillin’.

Lane Kiffin advised fans to have their popcorn ready before the game, and it seems that Big Al did.
