College football: Week 7 unveils the impossible as the Crimson Tide goes down
That match came by way of an old SEC Rival in the Tennessee Volunteers, who threw the former No. 1 team in the country completely out of playoff contention for the time being.
The Crimson Tide, however, wasn't the only team to surprisingly get bumped down in the rankings.
Following Alabama’s upset, USC was hit with one of their own on the road against reigning Pac-12 champions in the Utah Utes.
The Utes handed the Trojans their first loss of the season and the first in the Lincoln Riley era.
In the Midwest, Michigan brought some heat in the cold at The Big House, carrying on their perfect record after beating Penn State.
As expected, running backs Blake Corum and Donovan Edwards were unstoppable in the Wolverines' 41-17 victory over the Nittany Lions. The two combined for 339 rushing yards and four touchdowns as sophomore Edwards recorded a career high of 173 yards.
Highlighting the most electrifying game of the week, the Volunteers earned their bragging rights in Week 7 after defeating the unbeatable Crimson Tide.
Tennessee takes down Alabama and steals their No. 3 ranking
Tennessee beat Alabama for the first time since the legendary head coach Nick Saban took over Alabama's program in 2006.
In the high-scoring affair that broke the record for most points scored against Alabama since 1907, the win came down to the last play with two seconds remaining on the clock.
Tied at 49-49 on the 40-yard line, Tennessee's Chase McGrath kicked the field goal of his life.
Wobbling through the air and through the goal posts, McGrath did the unthinkable by securing the game-winning field goal as the clock expired, leading to a celebratory firework display at Neyland Stadium.
Tennessee's historic 52-49 win also came with a record-shattering performance by star receiver Jalin Hyatt.
Hyatt cemented his name in school history with a performance for the ages that included a record-breaking five reception touchdowns in a single game.
The Junior surpassed the former record (3) in his fourth reception of the day off of a record-setting 78-yard touchdown pass.
Hyatt also tied a 93-year-old school record by scoring 30 points in a single game – a record that was previously set by Gene McEver in 1929.
Following his outstanding and record-breaking performance, Hyatt earned national and conference weekly honors as the Walter Camp National Offensive Player of the Week and SEC Offensive Player of the Week.
