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.
Overall, this season has been rough for ranked teams as 32 AP-ranked squads have already lost this season, the most through the first five weeks of the season ever. No.12 Ole Miss vs. No.1 Alabama had all the makings of 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. 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.

Luckily for the multiverse, Big Al underwent a costume change — this time responding to Lane Kiffin’s pregame interview. He certainly had his popcorn ready and enjoyed every second of the game.

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.

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

Kentucky‘s 20-13 upset win over No. 10 Florida was a party — pun intended. With Waka Flocka in attendance, Florida’s 16-game win streak at Kentucky was snapped. It was the longest road conference win streak versus a single opponent in SEC history.

The social media team had fun with the historic win, but head coach Mark Stoops was quite level headed about the ordeal.
“We celebrate tonight, go back to work again tomorrow morning,” he said after the game.
Unfortunately for the Fighting Irish, they were on the other end of the stick this week as the Bearcats had some fun online.

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