1) Georgia is the best team in the country
The Tennessee Volunteers came out on fire against the Georgia Bulldogs, but that was just their opening drive; after that, Georgia adjusted and shut down a Volunteers offense that had been on fire in previous week’s. The scariest thing about Georgia is that the offense is pretty darn good now, also. Quarterback Stetson Bennett was making plays with his arm and his legs, and running back James Cook averaged over 10 yards per carry. The Bulldogs don’t have a massive win over a top 10 team, but they more than meet the eye test for what a champion looks like. If you are looking to get a future bet on the Bulldogs winning the national title then this is your best place to bet college football.
2) Michigan is not that good
The Wolverines were taken to the wire by a Penn State team that quickly regressed into a mediocre team over the last month. Michigan fans better not get their hopes up about finally beating Ohio State. After watching the Wolverines struggle at Happy Valley, I am not impressed with their chances to take down the Buckeyes. Jim Harbaugh is an excellent coach, but they don’t have the talent to be ranked as high.
3) Ohio State is too one-dimensional to win it all
The Buckeyes issue, though, is defense, and it seems to be an issue so big that it will end their season short of a National Title. CJ Stroud is the best quarterback the Buckeyes have had in years, and he proved it against Purdue on Saturday as he tossed five touchdown passes en route to the Buckeyes scoring 59 points. Purdue quarterback Aiden O’Connell threw for 390 yards and four touchdowns against the Buckeyes defense. Michigan State and Michigan are up next for the Buckeyes, and the lack of defense does give both teams a shot to upset the Buckeyes, but I think the Buckeyes high-powered offense should get them through both of those games a big ten championship game also. But, eventually, the defense will get them beat.
4) Cincinnati wins again
The Bearcats won on Friday night as they scored 31 unanswered points on the South Florida Bulls. I know it was South Florida, but when are people going to realize that Cincinnati has an excellent defense and offense. They deserved to be ranked ahead of everybody but Georgia. The Bearcats still have to play two outstanding teams in SMU and Houston, and if they win those two games, they belong in the playoffs. The best place for College Football news is right here.
5) Oklahoma is out
It had always seemed like a matter of time before this happened, and it finally did on Saturday as the Baylor Bears controlled the action and convincingly beat the Sooners. No Big 12 representation in the playoffs this year unless a ton of upsets hit now.
6) Alabama beat New Mexico State
I think Alabama should be lowered in the polls for playing this game. No game should ever be scheduled where a team is a 51 point favorite, but this is November in the SEC. It’s one thing if you have to play Vanderbilt; Bama can’t help that the Commodores are in the SEC, but New Mexico State! It’s an absolute joke that SEC teams can play these scrimmages in November while all of the other conferences, for the most part, play real teams.
7) Kenny Pickett is a stud
Pickett isn’t just a stud; he is currently the best quarterback in College Football. Too bad nobody notices because he plays for Pitt. On Thursday night Pickett out-duelled Sam Howell from North Carolina. Pickett and Howell put on a show, with Pickett winning in overtime 30-23.
8) The Houston Cougars are very good
The Cougars have not lost since week 1, that’s nine straight wins, and they look headed for an AAC Championship game matchup with the Cincinnati Bearcats in early December. The Cougars are good enough to give anybody in the country trouble and are fully capable of ending the bearcats magical run to the College Football Playoffs.
