Defenses were ball hawks in Week 7 of college football and two defenders made their way to this week’s top five plays of the week via interceptions. 

Of course, a healthy dosage of offense is the norm in college football and is evident below. Whether it was an perfect pass in one-on-one coverage or a ridiculous one handed reception — putting points on the board is never sore on the eyes.

The top five plays from Week 7 in college football:

Jaylen Waddle, Alabama, WR: No. 2 Alabama trailed No. 3 Georgia late in the third quarter and was backed up on its 10-yard line. Enter Jaylen Waddle. The speedy junior beat his defender and hauled in a pass from quarterback Mac Jones for a 90-yard touchdown that was the go-ahead score in a 41-24 victory for the Crimson Tide. Waddle had six catches for 161 yards in the win.

Tyrell Ajian, Kentucky, DB:  The Wildcats picked off the Tennessee three times on their way to a 34-7 win. None was more impressive than Ajian’s when he read a pass by J.T. Shrout beautifully and laid out to pick it off near the right sideline in the second quarter. Ajian finished with six total tackles to add to his interception. 

Zach Wilson, BYU, QB: Wilson dropped a dime to receiver Dax Milne in the first quarter in of the Cougars’ 43-26 win over Houston. Milne, who finished with 184 reception yards, hauled in the pass outside the numbers when he drew single coverage. Thanks to a perfect ball from Wilson, Milne was able to come down with the 78-yard catch and gallop for a touchdown. 

Leddie Brown, West Virginia, RB: Brown had a career day in WVU’s 38-17 defeat of Kansas that included this run through the middle of the defense that resulted in an 87-yard touchdown run with just over three minutes to go in the third quarter. Brown finished his day with 231 scrimmage yards and two touchdowns. 

Shi Smith, South Carolina, WR: This Gamecocks wideout hauled in one of the spectacular catches of the season when he snagged a pass from Collin Hill with one hand. In the fourth quarter, with Auburn defensive back Roger McCreary draped all over him, Smith somehow juggled and came down with the ball for a key third-down conversion. He finished with eight catches for 76 yards in the 30-22  win over No. 14 Auburn.
