There was a moment Saturday afternoon when No. 2 Clemson was tied with Boston College heading into the fourth quarter and No. 5 Southern California was tied in the fourth quarter with California. No. 8 Michigan was struggling to score against Purdue and No. 14 Miami was struggling to stop Toledo. No. 12 Florida State had already lost.
The college football season was all set to be turned upside down.
Not so fast. Clemson cruised. USC answered the challenge. Michigan found some offense. Miami pulled away.
