Maryland, Kentucky, and California win big

By Alejandro Freixes, CCNN Head Writer

Maryland’s win against Indiana was well-earned.

College football’s Week 5 had as many fumbles as it did tackles, but there were definitely 3 games that stood out above the rest.

The Maryland Terrapins won their 4th game of the season, with an impressive 37-15 knockout victory against the Indiana Hoosiers. They averaged over 8 yards per play, while the Hoosiers only managed less than 4 per play, and the Terrapins didn’t lose their 3rd quarter 20-9 lead after C.J. Brown was injured.

As for the Kentucky Wildcats, they landed their first SEC game win in 17 tries, holding the Vanderbilt Commodores to 139 yards and 8 first downs for a 17-7 victory. Will they keep up the momentum against South Carolina?

Meanwhile, the California Bears also nailed a landmark conquest, with their first Pac-12 win in 15 tries. Sophomore quarterback Jared Goff was key, with 7 touchdown passes, and they narrowly beat the Colorado Buffaloes 59-56.
