How did 2020 Week 14 treat the canine schools of college football?

2020 Week 14 wasn’t a very glamorous one on the 2020 college football schedule, but most of the games were able to be played, and a lot of the canine schools of NCAA Division I were in action.

Also, as usual, the football dogs of the country were cheering on their favorite schools, wearing the appropriate T-shirts, jerseys or bandannas for good luck.

2020 Week 14 for our purposes began on Thursday, December 3, as the Lousiana Tech Bulldogs defeated the North Texas Mean Green 42-31 in a Conference USA clash. Louisiana Tech is now 5-3 overall this season and 4-2 in C-USA play.

On Saturday, December 5, Reveille the Collie’s No. 5 Texas A&M Aggies held off an upset attempt by the Auburn Tigers to hang on to a 31-20 victory. A&M is now 7-1 for the season, while Auburn falls to 5-4.

Smokey the Coonhound’s Tennessee Volunteers were no match for Holland the Pup‘s No. Florida Gators, as Florida cruised to a 31-19 victory. Florida is now 8-1 after their 15th victory in the series in the past 16 years, while Tennessee drops to 2-8.

In the Sun Belt, the Arkansas State Red Wolves defeated the Louisiana-Monroe Warhawks 48-15. Louisiana-Monroe has the dubious distinction of playing 10 games this season and never leading in any of them. Arkansas State, meanwhile, improves to 4-7, 2-6.

In the MAC, Mission’s Northern Illinois Huskies were vanquished by the Toledo Rockets 41-24, remaining winless at 0-5.

In the ACC, the North Carolina State Wolfpack beat the visiting Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets 23-13, improving to 8-3, 7-3.

In the Mountain West, the Nevada Wolf Pack got back into the win column with their 37-26 win over the Fresno State Bulldogs; Nevada is now 6-1, while Fresno State drops to 3-2.

Also, the New Mexico Lobos got their first win of 2020 with their 17-16 triumph against the Wyoming Cowboys. New Mexico is now 1-5.

And finally in the Pac-12, Dubs’ No. 22 Washington Huskies were beaten by the Stanford Cardinal 31-26, Washington is now 3-1 this season.

And now onto how the vet schools of college football fared during 2020 Week 14…

In the SEC, the LSU Tigers’ disappointing season continued as they were crushed 55-17 at home by the No. 1 Alabama Crimson Tide in front of a national audience on CBS; LSU drops to 3-5 this season.

The Missouri Tigers hung onto a narrow 50-48 triumph in their rivalry game with the Arkansas Razorbacks to improve to 5-3 overall.

In the ACC, the Virginia Tech Hokies were clobbered by the No. 3 Clemson Tigers 45-10 in the ABC night game, dropping to 4-6 overall and 4-5 in conference.

The Duke Blue Devils were shut out by the No. 10 Miami Hurricanes 48-0; while Duke doesn’t technically have a vet school, their Canine Cognition Center is very important in dog science, so they count here. The Blue Devils’ football team is now 2-8, but basketball season is about to get underway, so there’s that.

In the Big Ten, the No. 4 Ohio State Buckeyes rolled over the Michigan State Spartans in the morning ABC contest in a battle between vet schools; Ohio State is now 5-0 while Michigan State drops to 2-4.

The No. 16 Wisconsin Badgers lost a defensive struggle 14-6 to the No. 12 Indiana Hoosiers; Wisconsin falls to 2-2 this year.

The Illinois Fighting Illini were defeated by the No. 19 Iowa Hawkeyes 35-21, Illinois is now 2-4 overall this season.

The Purdue Boilermakers were stopped by the Nebraska Cornhuskers 37-27, Purdue is now 2-4.

In the Big 12, the No. 9 Iowa State Cyclones blew past the West Virginia Mountaineers 42-6, improving to 8-2, 8-1.

The No. 15 Oklahoma State Cowboys’ season continues to fizzle out as they were upset by the Horned Frogs of TCU 29-22, dropping to a 6-3, 5-3 overall record.

In the morning Fox game, the Kansas State Wildcats were stampeded by the visiting Texas Longhorns, falling 69-31. K-State is now 4-6 overall and 4-5 in conference play.

In the Mountain West, the Colorado State Rams were defeated 29-17 by the Aztecs of San Diego State. Colorado State is now 1-3 on the year.

Because of the pandemic, the Vanderbilt Commodores-No. 8 Georgia Bulldogs game was postponed, and among other games, the No. 14 Northwestern Wildcats-Minnesota Golden Gophers and Boise State Broncos-UNLV Rebels contests were canceled. Finally, the Washington State Cougars-No. 20 USC Trojans game was scheduled for Sunday, December 6 at 4:30 p.m. PT on Fox Sports 1.
