A week after upsets dominated a universe of college football, a tip teams in a nation did all a dominating.
Favorites were put on dissapoint alert, though usually dual — No. 5 Missouri and No. 10 Texas Tech — from a tip 10 fell, as a tip 4 teams in a nation rolled, throttled and steamrolled their approach to considerable wins. You know, there’s a reason Alabama, Florida State, Oregon and Ohio State are a best of a best. They all distant their competition, outscoring opponents 199-55.
Alabama waxed Tennessee 45-10. Florida State erased final season’s upsetting detriment to NC State by thrashing a Wolfpack 49-17, while Ohio State cruised to a 63-14 win over Penn State.[+] Enlarge
Ironically, Oregon scored a slightest volume of points of a 4 with a 42-14 win over No. 12 UCLA. But don’t strike a Ducks for a slower descent start (only 14 points during halftime). They simply had a many considerable win of a day. They were a usually patrol of a 4 to take on another Top 25 team, and they had their approach with a Bruins in a second half.
So let a discuss rage: Who unequivocally is No. 1 now? Is Alabama, that has had one of a softest Oct schedules on record, still No. 1? The Crimson Tide led 35-0 during halftime Saturday in a diversion that was over before a second entertain even began. Since their stirring 49-42 win during Texas AM on Sept. 14, however, 5 of a Crimson Tide’s 6 opponents have lacked winning records. Alabama has given adult only 26 points in a final 6 games.
Still, Alabama is averaging 41 points per diversion given a AM shootout and gave adult 300 yards for a initial time given that diversion on Saturday. The Tide were dealt this diseased palm and they are doing accurately what they need to do to stay undefeated.
Meanwhile Oregon and Florida State are chugging right along, earning some-more and some-more respect. Fresh off that 51-14 violence of then-No. 3 Clemson, a Seminoles piled on 35 points behind that extraordinary arm of Famous Jameis Winston before a second entertain started. Hours later, Oregon done UCLA’s No. 12 ranking demeanour diverting with a opening in Eugene, Ore.
Neither Florida State nor Oregon has depressed next 41 points in a diversion this year.
Right now, no one would censure anyone for carrying an transmutable tip 3, though don’t be astounded if people start disposition some-more toward a Noles and Ducks for that No. 1 symbol after Saturday. After all, they did mix for 1,121 yards of offense.
Then there’s Ohio State. The group that has now won a nation-leading 20 true games is removing ignored some-more and more. Maybe that’s because Urban Meyer felt it was required to roughly strike two-thirds of a century symbol opposite a Nittany Lions. With a stream state of a BCS standings, a Buckeyes indispensable character points and they’re still removing them after that descent performance.
It’s still really early, and we’ve seen copiousness of crazy things occur with a tip group in a nation in a past, though for now, a tip 4 demeanour accurately like they should. They are winning and are creation a suspicion of a playoff demeanour improved with each win and each touchdown they score.
