The Big Ten Roars While Covid-19 Grounds SEC
The big deal this week seemed to be the different Covid-19 cancellations of SEC games and some postponements that took place. This included what we thought last week would be the game of the week Alabama against LSU. This week, the Big Ten made their move into the rankings. We saw Indiana and Wisconsin crack the Top Ten.
The Hoosiers shocked everyone in college football by shutting out the Michigan State Spartans 24-0. Then we saw the Badgers blow out the Michigan Wolverines 49-11. The Big Ten battle this week, and possibly the College Football Game of the Week, is #3 Ohio State against #9 Indiana.
Canceled/Postponed Games From Last Week
The following teams did not take the field, with either canceled or postponed games affecting them:
#3 Ohio State university
#5 Texas A&M.
1. Alabama (6-0)
2. Notre Dame (8-0)
3. Ohio State (3-0)
4. Clemson (7-1)
5. Texas A&M (5-1)
6. Florida (5-1)
7. Cincinnati (7-0)
8. BYU (8-0)
9. Indiana (4-0)
10. Wisconsin (2-0)
Other Top-10 Winners: #2 Notre Dame, #6 Florida and #7 Cincinnati were all comfortable winners on Saturday (2 TDs or more).
Tulsa moved into the rankings for the first time in 10 years after beating SMU. They knocked the Mustangs out of the top 25.
Marshall honored the 50th anniversary of the worst disaster in U.S. sports history with a win and then they vaulted the Thundering Herd into the top 15.
College Football Notes
Florida QB Kyle Trask tossed six TDs against Arkansas and he now has 28 TDs. He is tied for the most by any FBS player through six games over the last 20 seasons (Graham Harrell, 2007). Is he the new Heisman favorite?
UNC QB Sam Howell became the second player in ACC history with six pass TDs and one rush TD in a game. He looked unreal. Next up for the Tar Heels: #2 Notre Dame (Nov. 27).
Penn State started the season as #7 and boy, were some completely wrong. They are the fourth team to start 0-4 after being ranked in the preseason top 10.
What is wrong with Michigan? Is it Jim Harbaugh or something else? I guarantee the athletic department will get to the bottom of it quickly. They lost 49-11 to Wisconsin (worst home loss since 1935) to fall to 1-3 for the season to date (their worst start since 1967).
Well, South Carolina isn’t trying to figure out what is wrong with their program. They decided it was Will Muschamp and promptly fired him. He went 28-30 at the helm. The Gamecocks (2-5) have lost 14 of their past 20 games.
