Best College Football Pictures From Week 5

First Posted: 10/04/11 05:47 PM ET   Updated: 12/04/11 05:12 AM ET

Week 5 of college football season offered up some amazing finishes -- the Illinois-Northwestern game was one for the ages -- and further thinned the crowd of legitimate national title contenders. Clemson and Wisconsin firmly established themselves as the favorites to win their conferences, but Texas A&M dropped out of the national picture with its second straight heartbreaking loss. Meanwhile, Alabama and LSU only gave us more reason to believe that their contest in November will likely decide at least one representative in the BCS championship game in the Superdome.

As we do every week, we have compiled some of the week's most arresting college football photographs for your viewing pleasure.
