And for this week’s college football news: Hey what do you know, Ole Miss did beat Alabama. So glad to be wrong. However, before everyone cheers that Alabama is down and out (probably the rest of the country who aren’t Crimson Tide fans), remember they lost to Ole Miss last year and came back to win the SEC.
However, this time they have a much tougher schedule and lots of question at quarterback. Next Saturday (October 3) they play at Georgia which has looked like the best team in the SEC before Ole Miss beat Alabama , and certainly in the East. Almost a sure lock to make SEC title game.
After that they still play at Texas A&M and host LSU who has looked amazing. Doesn’t look very promising for them to be able to go without another loss.
While there are only 2 Top 25 matchups this Saturday, UCLA at Arizona and Utah at Oregon, both of which have playoff implications, there are lots of possibilities of upsets this week.
#3 TCU plays at Texas Tech. TCU’s defense has been decimated by injuries while Texas Tech has an amazing offense. Very scary matchup for a team that may make playoffs.
Stanford who just beat #6 USC plays at Oregon State, not the greatest team but it’s a road game.
Speaking of USC, they play at Arizona State. That’s a must win for their playoff hopes.
Oh, and Ohio State, you almost lost at home to Northern Illinois. So much for your greatness (especially of the QBs). Even if you make the playoffs, whatever SEC team makes the playoffs will gladly take their revenge on you.
