Week 5 of the college football season is coming to a close and there has been a considerable amount of on-field action — and plenty of trolling.
The week featured five top-15 matchups. But overall, this season has been rough for ranked teams as 25 AP-ranked squads have already lost this season, the most through the first four weeks of the season ever. No.12 Ole Miss vs. No.1 Alabama had all the makings of being a major matchup. Along with being the next chapter of Nick Saban and Lane Kiffin’s well-documented relationship, it featured two Heisman favorites in Matt Corral and Bryce Young. It also happened to be the next stop on Arch Manning’s recruiting tour.
Ole Miss had the catch of the day — and possibly the year — in Braylon Sanders‘ one-handed snag. But other than that it was Bama all the way. On the Crimson Tide’s sideline, a Loki variant was seen “marvelling” (see what I did there?) at the scoreboard.

The College GameDay crew headed to Athens, Georgia, for the No. 2 Georgia and No. 8 Arkansas matchup. The Bulldogs notched their second shutout in a row, with a decisive 37-0 win over the Razorbacks. For those keeping track at home, Georgia has outscored its last two opponents by a whopping 99-0.
Arkansas, who typically has a top-notch social media presence, had a straightforward approach for their postgame tweet.
This is the final score tweet.

Michigan nursed a healthy lead over Wisconsin and took some time to celebrate when “Jump Around” was played.

A wise man once said, “The enemy of my enemy is my friend.”
Needless to say, the Beavs were pleased.

Unfortunately for the Fighting Irish, they were on the other end of the stick this week as the Bearcats had some fun online.
Just grateful for this opportunity.
Thank you, @CoachBrianKelly!

Ohio State’s troll over Big Ten conference-mate Rutgers took quite a bit of planning.
Spolier alert: those tweets read Go Bucks, a tedious, yet supportive move by the team’s social media account
