There’s blowouts, and then there’s the sort of games that happened yesterday in college football. For starters, No. 11 South Carolina piled on the points to drop Coastal Carolina 70-10. From Tuscaloosa, No. 1 Alabama remained undefeated at 11-0 as they shut out Chattanooga 49-0. But the day’s most one-sided game was between Idaho and Florida State, where the Seminoles scored touchdown after touchdown for a 80-14 win.

Along with these decisive wins from some of the nation’s top teams, there was a stunning upset in Tuscon as unranked Arizona dropped Oregon 42-16 on the back of a stellar day from junior running back Ka’Deem Carey, who found the end zone on four occasions. The huge Pac-12 upset puts the Ducks at 9-2 on the season.

In college hoops action, the No. 1 ranked Michigan State Spartans kept the wheels in motion with a 87-76 win over Oklahoma, while No. 24 UNC dispatched Richmond 82-72.

In Oakland, the Portland Trail Blazers continued their run as the most surprising success of the 2013-14 NBA season with their 10th straight win after dropping Golden Sate 113-101. LaMarcus Alrdidge was a force to be reckoned with, dropping 30 points, 21 rebounds, 3 assists, 3 steals, and 3 blocks on the Warriors.
