Sixteen of those 20 video games weren’t noteworthy regardless of the rating:

Oklahoma State at house outlasted Texas Tech 49-45, you select whether or not these are two nice offensive or two actually awful defensive groups (94 whole factors).

Navy at house beat Duke 46-43 (89).

No. 13 Oregon (within the AP High 25) traveled to Stanford and gained 55-31 (86), we anticipated as a lot. The Geese at the moment are 4-0.

4 of those 20 video games have been noteworthy past the 70-plus mixed rating:

No. 21 Kentucky traveled to Arkansas and gained 42-29 (71). The Wildcats at the moment are 4-0. I nonetheless assume Kentucky is not so good as its file. They will must beat higher competitors to persuade me.

Syracuse (an 0-3 workforce) traveled to No. 18 Louisville and upset the Cardinals 38-35 (73). Syracuse led 31-14 after the third quarter. I’ve been saying for 3 weeks that Louisville has no protection value speaking about. The Washington Huskies traveled to Syracuse of their opener and beat The Orangemen 42-12. No. 19 Hawaii at house beat AA Charleston Southern 66-10 (76). The Warriors at the moment are 4-0 after one other cupcake opponent.

No. 24 Nebraska at house beat Ball State, sure, THAT Midwestern powerhouse, 41-40 (81).

The underside line: Would the sportswriters who vote within the AP High 25 Ballot recover from it and transfer Louisville, Hawaii and Nebraska proper out the ballot. All three groups should be booted out.

The 4th week noticed two different upsets: Miami (FL) at house simply dealt with No. 20 Texas A&M, and Michigan at house held off No. 10 Penn State 14-9. Michigan was favored within the recreation, however I believe Penn State ought to have been a visiting favourite if the Nittany Lions are actually the No. 10 workforce within the nation. Together with Louisville, Hawaii and Nebraska, Texas A&M ought to be voted out of the High 25 to make room for higher groups.

No. 1 USC simply slammed Washington State 47-14, No. 2 LSU beat No. 12 South Carolina 28-16, No. 22 Georgia traveled to No. 16 Alabama and gained with an ideal landing cross and catch on the final play 26-23, No. 3 Florida slid by a weak Mississippi workforce 30-24, and No. 9 Wisconsin managed to beat a weak Iowa workforce 17-13 with a final quarter landing.

No. 5 West Virginia, No. 8 Ohio State, No. 14 Boston Faculty, No. 15 Clemson, No. 17 Virginia Tech, No. 23 South Florida and No. 25 Missouri all gained.

The underside line: USC, LSU, Florida, West Virginia, Ohio State, Boston Faculty, Missouri, Clemson, South Florida and Wisconsin all stay unbeaten. I nonetheless assume Wisconsin shouldn’t be the ninth finest workforce in faculty soccer. Actuality lastly hit Indiana because it misplaced its first recreation to Illinois.

Among the many unranked and nonetheless unbeaten, Kansas at house beat Florida Worldwide 55-3, Michigan State traveled to Notre Dame and gained 31-14, Connecticut traveled to Pittsburgh and gained 34-14, and Cincinnati at house beat Marshall 40-14. Amongst new coaches, Mark Dantonio of Michigan State is 4-0, Dennis Erickson at Arizona State is 4-0 and Nick Saban at Alabama misplaced his first recreation with the Crimson Tide and is now 3-1.
