As of yesterday, our five unbeaten teams are still perfect. Alabama (9-0), the top ranked team in the country, beat LSU 29-0. LSU is a good football team, but they couldn’t get anything going offensively yesterday. Alabama’s defense held running back Nick Brossette to 5 yards on 7 carries, and Joe Burrow carried the ball 12 times for minus 7.
Alabama led 16-0 at halftime. Quarterback Tua Tagovailoa threw for 295 yards and a touchdown, while running back Damien Harris contributed 107 yards and a touchdown on the ground. Alabama scored 6 points in the third quarter and another 7 in the fourth. They played exceptionally well on both sides of the ball, and yesterday’s win against the 3rd ranked team in the nation showed us theyre definitely for real.
Clemson (8-0) blew out Louisville 77-16. Plain and simple. This could possibly be Head Coach Bobby Petrinos last season with the Cardinals.
Notre Dame (8-0), won 31-21 against Northwestern, and UCF (8-0) beat Temple 52-40. South Florida sits idle at 7-0, after having this week off.
How about the Michigan Wolverines beating Penn State 42-7. This was Penn States third loss this season, and I feel bad for them. I really do. I thought they were going to dominate the remainder of their schedule after the Ohio State loss, but that’s not what’s happening apparently.
Trace Mcsorley threw an interception, and completed 5 of 13 passes for a total of 83 yards, which is definitely not in the formula for winning, but he did rush for the Lions only score of the day.
On The Creep
- Ohio State
- Washington State
College football is so competetive, and for many years the top two teams playing for the National Championship had either one loss or was undefeated so we focused so much of our attention on the undefeated teams.
Usually in the past when teams lost their first game they seemed to fall into an ocean of one loss teams, but don’t forget about those creepers. Teams with one loss like those listed above are alive and well.
