From ESPN's David Hale:

Ole Miss backers can be forgiven for throwing remotes at their televisions as officials failed to go to replay on what appeared to be a critical Auburn mistake on a late punt. With the Rebels up a point, the ball appeared to tip off the finger of Tigers return man Shaun Shivers and roll into the end zone, where it was clearly recovered by Ole Miss. Instead, the play was ruled a touchback, Auburn marched down the field, and Seth Williams scored the game-winner with 1:11 to play. Auburn won 35-28, and the replay booth owes Ole Miss bettors a few bucks.

Ohio State head coach Ryan Day apologized for running up the score against Nebraska, but he should also apologize to bettors of the over. The total closed 69.5, and rather than take a knee, he had Jack Miller run for a 2-yard touchdown to bring the score to 51-17. Day said he had a young unit on the field and wanted to get them experience. It's a reasonable explanation, but couldn't he have gotten them a little more experience by going for two and covering the over? Instead, Ohio State kicked the PAT, putting the final total at 69 -- one point shy of going over. On the upside, the Buckeyes covered as a 28-point favorite thanks to that TD; Ohio State is now an impressive 14-4 against the spread in season openers since 2000, the best by any team in FBS.

We're not sure what Tom Herman had his staff read on Baylor message boards last week, but it sure wasn't the point spread. Texas, an 11-point favorite, was up 27-9 with 9:51 to play when QB Sam Ehlinger, for inexplicable reasons, threw a pass that was picked off. It led to a Baylor TD that closed the gap to -- you guessed it -- 11. Texas would surely find a way to score again, right? Yeah, the Longhorns had the ball at the Baylor 4 with 1:15 to go, but Herman simply ran out the clock for a push, which we believe deserves a horns down. Or, at least a horns sideways. Or maybe both horns pointing in opposite directions.
