This past week of College Football had a number of different games with very notable outcomes. Most importantly, last week’s numbers 7 and 12 fell. As a result, Stanford and Florida State likely do not have a real pathway to compete in a BCS bowl game this year, much less to compete in this year’s playoff’s.
With the season being about a third of the way through, here are our rankings for this week:
- Ohio State
- Texas A&M
- Ole Miss
- North Carolina
- Boise State
- Florida State
- West Virginia
Others receiving votes: Virginia Tech, North Dakota State, LSU, San Diego State
Once again, the Big Ten holds two of the top four of the rankings, meaning if the season ended today they would be set to have a team competing in each of the semifinal games. When looking at the top, it seems improbable that both Michigan and Ohio State will finish the season in the top 4, as they face off the last week of the season in Columbus on November 26.
As always, every week seems to exhibit its own surprises. This week has some very interesting games between ranked teams. Some of the most notable games are:
Tennessee (8) @ Texas A&M (9)
Virginia Tech @ North Carolina (18)
Alabama (1) @ Arkansas (16)
Florida State (20) @ Miami (10)
Houston (6) @ Navy
LSU (25) @ Florida
Texas @ Oklahoma (20)
