No. 2 Ohio State had no offensive troubles like they did last week, beating Indiana 56-14. The Buckeyes have won 28 consecutive games against Indiana, the longest on-the-field win streak by one team over another in Big Ten history. It’s also the longest active on-the-field win streak by a current FBS team over another current FBS team. C.J. Stroud threw for 5 TD and now has become the first player in Big Ten history to pass for 30 TD in consecutive seasons.

No. 5 Tennessee bounced back after its loss against Georgia with a 66-24 win over Missouri. Tennessee finished with 724 yards and 66 points. That’s the Volunteers most yards in a game and 3rd-most points since joining the SEC in 1933.

    Everglades Gone Wild: 18 Foot Python Eats 5 Foot Alligator

    It’s bad enough all the pythons that are wrecking the ecosystem of the Everglades. Also, they’re spreading out. During a hunt just 3 weeks ago a 14 foot python was captured in Naples.

    Many of the snakes being captured seem to be getting larger. Case in point. This 18 foot python was captured with a fully intact 5 foot alligator inside of it. I image he was moving pretty slow after such a large meal and was easy to capture. By the looks of the video it seems that the alligator hasn’t been digested at all. Geoscientist Rosie Moore described the video on her Instagram “This particular Python was roughly 18 ft, and had consumed a 5ft alligator. ” She goes on to explain why the pythons are such a threat “Due to the the subtropical environment of South Florida, paired with the Burmese pythons long life span and rapid reproduction, these snakes have successfully invaded ecologically sensitive areas such as Everglades National Park. This poses a threat to a variety of wildlife, due to the pythons wide dietary preferences.”

    Obviously this python definitely does not belong in the Everglades. Kudos to those who captured and euthanized it. No other animal in the swamp stands a change against one of these monsters.

    No one’s completely certain how the python was introduced in the Everglades. And now it seems they’re getting larger. And hungrier.

    I don’t know her, but Rosie Moore looks to be a total badass. Here’s some more from her Instagram:
