Top 25 Recap and My Top 25

Let’s see what happened around the country and where teams should rank

#1 Alabama Crimson Tide 52, Auburn Tigers 21

Just like last week, Alabama decided it only wanted to play in the second half, scoring 35 points in the final two quarters as Tua beat little brother.

#2 Clemson Tigers 56, South Carolina Gamecocks 35

Gamecock quarterback Jake Bentley threw for over 500 yards and 5 TDs. The Gamecocks lost by three touchdowns.

#3 Notre Dame Fighting Irish 24, USC Trojans 17

I look forward to watching Trevor Lawrence carve up Notre Dame for 400 yards.

#10 Ohio State Buckeyes 62, #4 Michigan Wolverines 39

Let’s take a live look at tweets that aged well

With one of the nation’s best defenses, Michigan allowed the most points ever in regulation this rivalry game. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

#5 Georgia Bulldogs 45, Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets 21

If Bulldogs had tails, next week they’d have to put theirs between their legs.

#6 Oklahoma Sooners 59, #13 West Virginia Mountaineers 56

#22 Texas A&M Aggies 74, #7 LSU Tigers 72

I went to bed as this game was going to overtime and woke up 7 hours later and it was still on.

#16 Washington Huskies 28, #8 Washington State Cougars 15

Little brother will always been little brother.

#9 UCF Knights 38, South Florida Bulls 10

UCF completes its second straight undefeated regular season and it means nada.

#11 Florida Gators 41, Florida State Seminoles 14

Willie Taggert has a lot of work to do. A lot.

#12 Penn State Nittany Lions 38, Maryland Terrapins 3

Since joining the Big Ten in 2014, the Terrapins have never won more than 4 conference games and the past four years have finished below .500 in conference.

#14 Texas Longhorns 24, Kansas Jayhawks 17

the Jayhawks did all they could to send Beatty out a winner, picking off Sam Ehlinger twice after he went over 300 attempts without a pick.

#15 Kentucky Wildcats 56, Louisville Cardinals 10

Kentucky is good and Louisville is bad. In Football. Alternate realities do exist.

#17 Utah Utes 35, BYU Cougars 27

Utah will play for the Pac-12 Championship against Washington.

#18 Mississippi State Bulldogs 35, Ole Miss Rebels 3

This game is always ugly between two teams that think they should be better than they are. The officials allowed the Rebels to run a play at the end of the 3rd, where the Rebels appeared to score a touchdown. A brawl ensued and every single player received an unsportsmanlike penalty and several were ejected. The touchdown was then called back.

#19 Northwestern Wildcats 24, Illinois Illini 16

Northwestern can do everyone a solid and upset Ohio State next week.

#20 Syracuse Orange 42, Boston College 21

There is a chance that the Mountaineers may have to play Syracuse in a bowl game....

#23 Boise State Broncos 33, #21 Utah State Aggies 24

An entertaining game that no one saw because it involves two G5 schools. Still Utah St. finishes with 10 wins.

Miami-Florida Hurricanes 24, #24 Pittsburgh Panthers 3

Pitt gets rolled by Miami and will still play Clemson in the ACC Championship. Im not rooting for the Panthers next week, but a Clemson loss would be the most Pitt thing ever.

#25 Iowa St. Cyclones 42, Kansas State Wildcats 38

Down 17 with 12 minutes left to play, Iowa State scored a touchdown, forced a fumble that it returned for a touchdown and then iced the game with a long drive. Three years in the Matt Campbell tenure and Iowa State is only 18-18 overall and 13-14 in conference but he’s building something. He will look good in Columbus next year.
