Oregon should be #4. Their lone loss is a last second touchdown to Auburn, whom the committee has a hard-on for. Georgia lost to South Carolina, who'd be lucky to finish runner-up in the Sun Belt, and Bama lost Tua.
Atlanta is now not the only team to blow a 28-3 lead. Congrats, Baylor. You just choked against Chokelahoma.
That's how it's been since the 70s. Pittsburgh prided themselves on toughness, then cried that Jack Tatum and George Atkinson were dirty. Called Jerry Glanville and the Oilers of the 80s classless when they started to punch them back. They tolerated James Harrison's head shots for over a decade, but say Burfict is the dirtiest player in existence. The Steelers are professional sports' biggest hypocrites.
Maryland lost by one to them last season. Never say never.
There's not a single team I'm worried about. Of course there are some concerns. Clemson's defense could really put some pressure on Fields. Burrow, Edwards-Helaire, and LSU could really test OSU's defense. But I don't believe they're better teams.
Because Maryland gave them the look they liked. That's it. There's no guarantee teams like Penn State, Michigan, Clemson, LSU, etc. will line their return team that far away from the sideline.
Bosa may be the first, but he isn't the only one to do that.
Oklahoma being in the top 50 in total defense is a minor miracle, especially considering they allowed 48 to K-State and 41 to Iowa State.
Wouldn't be the first time.
Game vs. Sparty from last season.
I'm still doubtful. Never underestimate the power of Michigan to play down to their competition.
As bad as Sparty is, I would be shocked if Michigan blew them out. D'Antonio always has them fired up for that game, and Michigan has struggled with almost every team this season.
Urban also brought in Larry Johnson, Stud, Ash, Wilson, Alford, and Vrabel. Yeah, that's an ugly list of bad hires, but Urban made more good hires than bad ones.
Last year, it felt like if they gave up less than 14 a quarter, it was a win.
Chalk this up as the second time Saban has lost to OSU's 3rd string QB.
Joe Burrow is the next Tom Brady, and y'all don't even know it.
They just went to triple overtime with a 4-5 TCU team. If they beat OU and Texas, then I'll take them seriously.
They beat Maryland 59-0 in Annapolis. So that means the rest of their road games, they're only +26.
That's an insult to Rutgers. They at least beat Liberty.
To hell with that.
3. Who cares
4. Don't give a damn
I've been saying it for weeks now, Penn State is one of the worst road teams in the country. I'll bet a few bucks that they have the biggest point differential when playing at home compared to on the road. With or without Young, I think the Bucks beat them by 21+.
Day got my hopes up calling those timeouts. I was hoping he'd throw a bomb, then go for 2.
I think they got the alignment that they wanted. Can't guarantee every team will line up like that.
Cincinnati doesn't have it smooth-sailing yet. Their two toughest games are against Temple and @Memphis, which are the last two games of the regular season for them. If they lose both of those, and Temple wins out, Temple wins the East. Plus, we can't ignore the fact that they nearly lost to a 3 win East Carolina team. Who knows what'll happen.
