FOOTBALL

After a 31-game home winning streak, Alabama lost to LSU, shaking up the college football ranking system. The Tigers beat the Crimson Tide 46-41, and according to former Alabama star and Heisman trophy winner Mark Ingram, the loss is because Donald Trump attended the game. The next set of rankings comes out Tuesday night, and LSU has a shot of eclipsing Ohio State with the number one slot.

In the NFL, the Cleveland Browns managed to win a game, but it was ugly. Quarterback Baker Mayfield threw a late game winning touchdown pass to Rashard Higgins for a Browns’ 19-16 victory.

Leading his Baltimore Ravens to another win, quarterback Lamar Jackson is cementing his legacy, but all anyone is talking about after the 49-13 trouncing of the Cincinnati Bengals, is his 47-yard run where he faked out a defender and spun around another for a impressive touchdown.

In the battle of New York, the Jets found a way to beat the Giants. The Giants’ Saquon Barkley had nowhere to run, and Jets’ quarterback Sam Darnold finally had an interception-free game. Jets 34, Giants 27
