Top 25 Notes

  • #2 Clemson jumps Oklahoma after they dominated now #19 Louisville.
  • #5 USC beats Texas off a crazy fumble by the longhorns. The Trojans took over in double overtime and kicked a 43 yard field goal for the win. USC has just not been playoff dominant in my eyes, and struggling with Texas did not help.
  • #6 Oklahoma State did not let off the gas against Pitt, and jumped Washington, Michigan Wisconsin, and Ohio State. This drops Ohio State to #10 meaning Buckeye fans are getting worried.
  • #13 Virginia Tech and #14 Miami each moved up 3 spots as they will battle for the ACC Coastal Divsion title this season.
  • One of our new teams this week coming right in at #17 is Mississippi State. We seem to have some Dak Prescott resemblance for the Bulldogs as Nick Fitzgerald led his unranked Bulldogs to an upset blow out win over #12 LSU 37-7. Miss State looked very good especially on defense holding the very talented LSU offense to just a touchdown. LSU is now ranked 25th.
  • Our three other new teams this week are #22 San Diego State, #23 Utah, and #24 Oregon.
