This Saturday was light in big-time clashes, but that does not mean there was no drama. The No. 6 Oregon, which is believed to be a college football playoff contender, fell on the road to the state of Arizona in absolute surprise.
Meanwhile, Ohio State secured the Big Ten East and a place in the game for the league title with a victory over Penn State. The Buckeyes continue to look like one of the best teams in the country.
LSU, the number 1 team in the playoff ranking, had few problems with Arkansas. Elsewhere in the SEC, Alabama crushed West Carolina, while Georgia rejected a return effort from Texas A&M.
At this point, we have only eight or nine teams that have a chance in the playoff. It will be fascinating to see how everything develops.
This is what we think the top 25 of the AP survey will look like this Sunday:
- Ohio State
- Utah (plays Arizona late)
- Penn state
- Notre Dame
- Boise State (plays late in the state of Utah)
- Oklahoma State
- Appalachian State
- Virginia Tech
College football fans: do we have it right?
