April 21st, 2022 by admin No comments »

College football’s 9th week saw the 5 teams at the top of the AP Top 25 Poll give notice to any and all opponents that they are not moving down easily.

No. 1 Texas hosted unbeaten No. 7 Oklahoma State and won 28-24 by holding the Cowboys to nearly half of their 46 point scoring average through 7 games. In 4 of its 7 wins, Oklahoma State had scored 56, 57, 55 and 56 points in consecutive games. The Cowboys played tough, but in the end the Longhorns refused to lose.

No. 2 Alabama traveled to unranked Tennessee and the Crimson Tide rolled on, beating the Volunteers 29-9. Tennessee may be the best 3-5 team in the country. Few people realize that the Vols are ranked 14th nationally in rushing defense, 17th in scoring defense and 17th in passing defense.

No. 3 Penn State traveled to No. 10 Ohio State and turned back one of the nation’s top defenses in a 13-6 nail-biter. The Nittany Lions had waltzed through their first 6 games before facing Wisconsin on the road and Michigan at home. Many pundits thought that their schedule was weak compared to the Buckeyes. Not so. JoPa’s team left Ohio State with a 9-0 record.

Less well known was the fact that while the Buckeyes were ranked among the Top 25 teams statistically in 5 defensive categories, the Nittany Lions were also ranked among the Top 25 in the same categories. Moreover, Penn State was in the Top 25 in one other defensive category and two more offensive categories. Ohio State will not be playing in the BCS national championship game this year.

No. 4 Oklahoma traveled to unranked Kansas State and won the game in the first half, 55-28. Kansas won in the second half, 7-3. The final was 58-35. Suffice to say that defense was not on display.

No. 5 Florida hosted Kentucky and took the Wildcats to school in a 63-5 romp that some thought would never end soon enough.

No. 6 Southern California managed to get past an unranked, 2-5 Arizona State team, 17-10, a not impressive victory. No. 8 Texas Tech was impressive on the road, ripping No. 19 Kansas a new one in a 63-21 victory. Tech led 56-14 after three quarters. No. 9 Georgia traveled to No. 11 Louisiana State and won 52-38.

The rest of the AP Top 25 winners did not create much of a stir. It was No. 13 Boise State over San Jose State 33-16, No. 15 Texas Christian over Wyoming 54-7, No. 16 Missouri over Colorado 58-0, No. 18 Brigham Young over UNLV 42-35, No. 20 Ball State over Eastern Michigan 38-16, No. 22 Tulsa over Central Florida 49-19, No. 24 Florida State over Virginia Tech 30-20, and No. 25 Minnesota over Purdue 17-6.

Other Top 25 teams that lost to unranked teams included No. 14 South Florida to Louisville 24-20, No. 17 Pittsburgh to Rutgers 54-34, No. 21 Georgia Tech to Virginia 24-17, and No. 23 Boston College to North Carolina 45-24. No. 12 Utah was idle this week.

The only 8 unbeaten teams remaining include Texas, Alabama, Penn State, Texas Tech, Utah, Boise State, Ball State and Tulsa.

When the new AP Top 25 list came out for week 10, 4 teams were missing-No. 17 Pittsburgh, No. 19 Kansas, No. 21 Georgia Tech and No. 23 Boston College. All were losers this week and subsequently gone.

New to the list this year was Maryland at No. 25, and returning to the Top 25 from earlier in the season were No. 21 North Carolina, No. 22 Michigan State and No. 23 Oregon.

College football’s 10th week will be a pretty lame schedule with two exceptions. One unbeaten team will lose for the first time when No. 1 Texas (8-0) invades No. 6 Texas Tech (8-0). The Red Raiders understand that to be No. 1 you have to beat No. 1. Texas got 100% of the first-place votes in the AP Poll.
