Each week, Campus Union will delve into the fun, the weird and the wacky of college football with a series called Between The Hashes. It’s a way to decompress from the madness of the week, and to find a few things that you might have missed.

Oh no, oh no, oh no, oh no there are only a couple more weeks of the regular season. How did this happen? We had so many big ideas and tailgates scheduled and we were finally going to make that one recipe we've been putting off because we never got around to buying saffron. Slow down, I'm sure we'll all still be friends after the season ends, of course we'll all meet up and take vacations and talk on AIM every day. We won't drift apart. We were so close. We were practically a family.

Since there's no physical yearbook for us to all sign, Between the Hashes can help be our precious memories. And at least we have time to make a few more.

Stanford may have kept its talking to a minimum coming into the team's game against Oregon, but after the Cardinal pulled out the win, the trees were telling all kinds of tales.

They certainly earned it, although those were some chatty pads.

And as for Oregon, well, sad Ducks are sad.

"Don't move. He can't see us if we don't move."

Fan of the Week honors were wrapped up in convincing fashion Saturday night during 'Bama-LSU. With the performance, he's automatically qualified for the finals at season's end, and quite frankly, it's going to be tough for anyone to mount a serious challenge.

Let's get another look:

So apologies to this guy, you didn't stand a chance buddy:

Still too early to know how Alabama fan Coal Bucket will take the news:

Play of the Week

This hurdle by Missouri's Russell Hansbrough is mesmerizing. The sheer speed with which he vaulted over the Kentucky defender is one of those, "wow sports" moments.

Missouri added another impressive play when wide receiver Dorial Green-Beckham had this nifty touchdown grab:

Florida had a bit of a rough go against Vanderbilt to say the least, but it shouldn't take away from the bubble bobble beauty of this tip drill catch, this week's most impressive play:

Quote of the Week

So many good ones this week.

Speaking of Les, his explanation of his red light incident from earlier this week was pure gold.

But quote of the week honors go to Alabama coach Nick Saban. He's slowly showing more and more personality this season, and this is a development I can support wholeheartedly.

The UGA I-UGA VIII Mascot Award

Not as much animal fun as we're used to, but one lil' guy made his way into our hearts when Baylor played Oklahoma. He's no rally fox, but few are.

Jack of All Trades

UCLA freshman linebacker Myles Jack was already having a great season on the defensive side of the ball, but with the Bruins short on running back depth against Arizona, he was called into action in an unlikely place -- at running back. He responded in a big way, carrying the ball six times for 120 yards and a touchdown. And naturally, people were happy about it.

Purdue, oh, Purdue

Nothing's going right for the Boilermakers this year.

Hey, but at least they've got a big drum.

Ooh, Kill 'em

Minnesota has danced its way to an 8-2 record, and it's a beautiful thing.

Jokes aside, it's awesome to see Jerry Kill getting closer to the sidelines.
