Hotty Toddy and 11 Ole Miss beats 3 Bama, 23-17, (Katy Perry was adorable on College GameDay live from Oxford, MS) and that is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the chaos that took place this past weekend in college football action. It began on Thursday night when Marcus Mariota and the 2 Oregon Ducks went down in Eugene to undefeated and unranked Arizona, 31-24. Picking up with the Saturday action, never have so many top ranked teams lost! 6 Texas A & M was rolled by 12 Miss State, 48-31, big day for the teams from Mississippi! 4 Oklahoma lost to 25 TCU, 37-33 in a close one and oh, my the Pac 12! You think the teams in the SEC beat up on each other, well they do so as well in the Pac 12. Arizona State defeated 16 USC, 38-34 on a Hail Mary TD pass with time expiring! Are you kidding me? And then, 8 UCLA goes down to Utah on a last second field goal (two attempts), 30-28.
Holding steady, 5 Auburn decimated 15 LSU 41-7, 7 Baylor took care of Texas, 28-7 (apparently that pep talk by Matthew McConaughey was all for naught, but hey, I love Matthew McConaughey!), and 1 FSU and 13 UGA both were at the bakery playing cupcakes and won respectively, FSU 43-3 over Wake Forest and UGA blew out Vandy 44-17. In a defensive battle, perhaps one of the hardest fought games of the day, 14 Stanford fell to 9 Notre Dame, 17-14. Whew…what a Saturday of college football on the first weekend in October!
Plus, I must add that Georgia Tech defeated Miami, 28-17 in the ATL! They have lost the past five games to the Hurricanes but not last night in a “white-out” at Bobby Dodd Stadium at Grant Field. The Jackets are now 5-0, one of only ten remaining undefeated teams. As a result, Georgia Tech welcomes themselves to the top twenty five today for the first time this season!
Latest AP and Coaches Polls are out and here are the top ten in each! AP Poll: 1 FSU (35), 2 Auburn (23), 3 Miss State, 4 Ole Miss, 5 Baylor, 6 Notre Dame, 7 Alabama (highest ranked one loss team), 8 Michigan State, 9 TCU, and 10 Arizona (from unranked to #10!)
Coaches Poll top ten: 1 FSU (44), 2 Auburn (16), 3 Baylor, 4 Ole Miss, 5 Notre Dame, 6 Miss State, 7 Alabama, 8 Michigan State, 9 Oklahoma, and 10 UGA.
Oregon is #12 in the AP Poll, #11 in the Coaches Poll, UCLA is #18 in the AP Poll and #17 in the Coaches Poll, and Stanford is #25 in AP Poll, #23 in Coaches Poll. And at last, Georgia Tech joins the party! #22 in the AP Poll and #23 in the Coaches! Welcome.
We must remember, there is a whole lot of football still to be played. Todd Gurley, RB UGA appears to now be the front runner for the Heisman. I am still hoping for Marcus Mariota.
Change of pace, new episode of The Good Wife airs tonight on CBS and tomorrow, Shanghai Masters Tennis event gets underway…and yes, Roger Federer will be there. So glad, I really need some Federer time!
Enjoy the rest of your Sunday!
