Alabama beats another opponents into submission and sleepwalks through the game. Tua remains perfect. Ho-hum.
Vanderbilt kicked a field goal to open the scoring in this game, making the Mountaineers the last team to never trail in a game this season.
Dwayne Haskins and the Buckeyes were sloppy and won by 23. Gee that sounds really familiar....
Trevor Lawrence returned after a nasty collision last week appeared to take him out. The ACC is so bad.
The Gators picked off quarterback Joe Burrow twice, including one that was the difference in the game.
Notre Dame walked into Lane Stadium in the heart of Enter Sandman and took the Hokies best shot before dismantling them. The Irish look like a lock for the playoffs now.
The Longhorns jumped on the Sooners early, building a 45-24 lead after three quarters. Now Texas is one of two remaining teams unbeaten in conference.
Mississippi State Bulldogs 23, #8 Auburn Tigers 9
Leading just 16-9 with a minute in the game, quarterback Nick Fitzgerald scampered to the endzone to ice the game. The loss could spell the end of the Pac-12’s playoff chances. (Washington lost to Auburn)
Four turnovers, including three in the redzone and the Mountaineers still won by 16 at home and never trailed.
Chip Kelly’s return to college football is not going as well as planned as the Bruins remain winless.
UCF remains the top Group of Five team and is in line for a New Year’s Six bowl.
The Wildcats forced overtime with a fumble return for a touchdown, but failed to give the ball to Benny Snell in overtime.
Stanford needed a miracle to beat Oregon, then got beat down by Notre Dame. The loss begins to put serious doubt on the Pac-12 and the playoffs.
Michigan’s Deathtober begins next week as they host Wisconsin, travel to Michigan State then host Penn State. We’ll know how good the Wolverines are in November.
The Scott Frost train at Nebraska is off the rails and careening towards a cliff. Nebraska could wind up with only one win this season.
Florida State punted with 4 minutes left, asking its defense to stop Miami and get the ball back. It didn’t.
The Big Ten is Ohio State and a bunch of leftovers. Michigan State remains frustrating as they lose to teams they shouldn’t.
The Buffs remain undefeated and would win the P12 South.
#23 NC State Wolfpack 28, Boston College 23
The ‘Pack get their shot at beating Clemson. If they can, then NC State would take a commanding lead in the ACC Atlantic and possibly end the playoff hopes for the ACC.
The Cyclones prove that this was much more of a rebuilding year for Mike Gundy’s squad than most people believed.
My Top 25
- Ohio State
- Notre Dame
- West Virginia
- Penn State
- NC State
Alabama and Ohio State are the clear two best teams in the country right now and the gap between Alabama and Ohio State is bigger than the gap between Ohio State and the next 3-4 teams. Based on their resume, I have Notre Dame #3 but Georgia can prove their worth the next few weeks. Clemson looks amazing but the ACC is trash. We’ll have a better understanding next week after they play NC State. The Mountaineers continue to put their head down and win. They will prove how good they are in November. Did you know that Cincinnati, USF, Buffalo and Hawaii are a combined 22-2?
