College football Week 12 top plays: TCU-Baylor; Blake Corum update

Week 12 of the college football season features several exciting matchups, and we’ve got you covered from start to finish for all the big games underway Saturday.

A pair of playoff hopefuls kick off the slate by trying to fend off solid unranked opponents. No. 4 TCU travels to Baylor while aiming to stay unbeaten. In the Big Ten, No. 3 Michigan tries to keep its focus on Illinois on Saturday before taking on its big rival next week.

Later, No. 2 Ohio State travels to Maryland and No. 9 Clemson hosts Miami. Texas plays at Kansas looking to remain in the hunt to win a Big 12 title. 

The day ends with a few strong matchups. Oklahoma is seeking revenge against No. 22 Oklahoma State in the Bedlam Series after losing to its arch-rival last season. No. 7 USC travels to the Rose Bowl to take on crosstown rival No. 16 UCLA. Finally, No. 10 Utah attempts to beat No. 12 Oregon for the third time in the last two seasons in a rematch of last year’s Pac-12 Championship Game. 

Here are the top plays from Saturday’s slate!

No. 4 TCU at Baylor

Baylor booming early

Qualan Jones capped off the Bears’ opening drive by punching the ball into the end zone on a 10-yard scamper.  

He can run, too

TCU QB Max Duggan has made a name for himself all season for the plays he’s made with his arm. However, it was his legs that got the Horned Frogs on the board to even up the game late in the first quarter on a 7-yard touchdown run.

Tight end rushing TD!

Kelsey Johnson took the reverse and ran up field for a 2-yard touchdown to give Baylor the lead back. 

TCU punches back again

Right after Baylor scored its second touchdown of the game, Duggan connected with Taye Barber for a near-80-yard reception on the opening plan of the ensuing drive that set up Kendre Miller to run for a touchdown a few plays later.

Not on TCU’s watch

Baylor tried to get a touchdown in right before halftime. But TCU defensive back Bud Clark picked off a pass in the end zone to keep the game tied going into halftime.

Illinois at No. 3 Michigan

Blake Corum already going off

The Michigan running back and Heisman hopeful juked multiple defenders on the game’s opening play for a 35-yard gain before scoring later in the drive to put the Wolverines up 7-0.

Corum goes down

As Michigan looked to score its second touchdown of the game, Corum fumbled the ball to Illinois. More importantly, Corum grabbed at his left knee and remained on the turf for a few moments before walking off the field under his own power. 

Corum is back?

Michigan fans were able to breathe a sigh of relief after halftime as its star running back was cleared to return after undergoing tests on his left knee, per the ABC broadcast.
