Welcome back to another round of The Fifth Down! Episode 7! Mitch Hill and Bennett Hughes are back to put a bow on Mizzou vs. South Carolina, as well as dig into everything else that happened in college football last weekend (looking at you, Michigan).

After starting the pod on a shameless note with a dig at kansas’... ummm... troubles (yes, this is a football podcast, but HEY— football was cited too), our hosts get into a wide range of football-related topics.


  • (2:30)- Bye week thoughts, KB’s slow start to the ‘Cocks game which allowed him show off his patented leg-strength
  • (5:00)- DE-DE-DE-DEFENSE! Some cool stats for you, such as- did you know SC was #3 in the country in rushing yards coming into the game?
  • (6:20)- Some defensive standouts
  • (11:30)- Who’s going to be the go-to receiver?
  • (12:45)- Your obligatory Larry Three-Sticks™ reference, as well as other RB progressions

  • (19:15)- College Football wrap-up: Michigan (lol), OSU is putting up video game numbers but they ain’t played nobody, early Heisman talk, a look at some other SEC opponents (Georgia=terrifying, Tennessee=not so much, Arkansas=yikes), Pitt-UCF (what’s up, Josh Heupel?), and the greatest game of the week— the ridiculousness of UCLA vs Wazzu #Pac12AfterDark
  • (35:00)- Wrapping up: some fluke events happened leading up to the Wyoming game that hadn’t previously been mentioned, and Mizzou is doing awesome, guys!
