Last week, we saw a mixture of everything. Heroics, controversy and blowouts highlighted in college football. We even had Lee Corso tears on College Gameday. I cried man tears watching him tear up. The way Trevor Knight is playing right now makes me believe that the Aggies are most certainly contenders. They played a thriller last week against Tennessee, and look to be the toughest test for number 1 Alabama.
So for me? Once again I am in neutrality, a 3-3 mark. UNC and Houston thoroughly let me down and well, Miami stunk up the joint. But enough about that, let’s hop right into this week.
Let me start off with my LOCK of the week. I absolutely love the Clemson Tigers at home against North Carolina State. NC State got a gift win last week against Notre Dame. We all know that when it’s raining cats and dogs the Irish are basically useless. Clemson went into Chestnut Hill and destroyed Boston College. I think Clemson is a LOCK this week and the Wolfpack will look like a group of scared puppies. Look for Deshaun Watson to have a HUGE week, and the Tigers to roll.
The luck of Tennessee ran out in College Station against the Texas A&M Aggies. This week the Vols need a big turn around game, but it won’t come easy as they get the Alabama Crimson Tide. The Tide are in for a tough test against Joshua Dobbs. Dobbs has been heroic all season long. He could be the new guy to take down the Tide, and join a list of names like Manziel, Newton, and Kelly. Remember: Saturday’s are for the boys…and for Saban. Coach Saban has been known to dash the hopes of the Volunteers. God bless the people who will miss this one, and the best part is Verne Lundquist is on the call.
In this weeks primetime game of the week, we get the BIG 10 matchup of Wisconsin and Ohio State. The Buckeyes come in undefeated and have not lost to Wisconsin since 2010. Yes, that dates back to the days of Bret Bielma, Montee Ball, and John Clay, who are basically irrelevant now. This could be the biggest test of the Buckeyes season until they take on Michigan in the regular season finale. My big question is, will the Badgers be starting Bart Houston? The true freshman could really be crushed by the pressure, but Paul Chryst could start anyone in this huge matchup.
LOCK: Number 3 (6-0) Clemson 48 – (4-1) NC State 14
(4-2) UNC 24 – Number 16 (4-1) Miami 14
Number 1 (6-0) Alabama 34 – Number 9 (5-1) Tennessee 24
Number 13 (5-1) Houston 38 – (4-1) Tulsa 10
Number 12 (3-2) Ole Miss 36 – Number 22 (4-2) Arkansas 31
Number 2 (5-0) Ohio State 17 – Number 8 (4-1) Wisconsin 13
My heisman favorite right now could be JT Barrett. I think Baker Mayfield and Trevor Knight are making up some ground after last week. But Christian McCaffrey is in my opinion on the outs. Deshaun Watson and Lamar Jackson are very much alive. WHERE IS LEONARD FOURNETTE?
Until next week college football fans….
