(Supervisor’s Note: All of the group rankings depend on the Top 25 Coaches’ Poll, and the Sagarin Ratings, Jeff Sagarin’s authentic, numerical appraisals among rivalry between every one of the 245 Division 1 groups.)
Just 7 groups stayed on top and on target at 2-0 during the second seven day stretch of the school football season-Florida, USC, Alabama, California, Boise State, Brigham Young and Kansas.
No. 1 Florida squashed Troy 56-6 behind Tim Tebow’s profession high 4 score passes and a surging score.
No. 3 Southern Cal saved the best to last against No. 7 Ohio State to win, 18-15, out and about as rookie quarterback Matt Barkley drove the Trojans on a 14-play, 95-yard drive to score with 1:05 excess. The Buckeyes of Ohio State have now lost 7 straight games against top 5 groups, including two public title games and last season’s 35-3 drubbing by USC in Los Angeles.
No. 4 Alabama brought down Florida International 40-14 as QB Greg McElroy finished a school-record 14 straight passes. Recall that Alabama was the very school that Joe “Willie” Namath prompted a National Championship in 1964, and Kenny “The Snake” Stabler prompted another National Championship in 1965. Both Namath and Stabler played for the Crimson Tide’s unbelievable mentor Paul “Bear” Bryant.
No. 10 California steered Eastern Washington, 59-7, behind Jahvid Best’s 144 yards hurrying and 2 scores, one surging and another on a 22-yard gathering.
No. 11 Boise State shut out Miami of Ohio, 48-0, as QB Kellen Moore went 16-for-26 for 307 yards and 4 score passes.
No. 12 Brigham Young, circling back to its 14-13 miracle of Oklahoma seven days sooner, kicked Tulane sideways out and about, 54-3, as QB Max Hall tossed for 309 yards and 2 TDs and Bryan Kaiya scored twice.
No. 25 Kansas whipped UTEP, 34-7, out and about behind Jack Sharp’s 104 yards surging and 3 scores.
There were 4 certifiable miracles as Notre Dame, Oklahoma State, Tennessee and Michigan State all hit the turf hard.
No. 20 Notre Dame permitted Tate Focier to toss a 5-yard TD pass to Greg Matthews with 11 seconds to go to give unranked Michigan a 38-34 triumph in the Big House at Ann Arbor. Focier, a rookie, went 23-for-33 for 240 yards, 2 TDs, one capture attempt, and ran for 70 yards and a score. ประวัติE-Sport Notre Dame’s star QB Jimmy Clausen, presently a lesser, went 25-for-42 for 336 yards and 3 TDs, however missed a few tosses that demonstrated exorbitant.
You can squabble over who was the better QB on this day, be that as it may, nothing checks except for the last score, and Notre Dame again came up a failure in a major event.
Subsequent to bringing down Georgia last week, No. 6 Oklahoma State, a 15-point top choice, let everything get away while losing to Houston 45-35 at home. The Cowboys need to figure out how to ride once more; they appear to consistently have more offense than guard.
UCLA discreetly went to 2-0 by disturbing Tennessee out and about 19-15. The Volunteers, a 10-point top pick, are not making a big deal about an impression in the SEC any longer.
The Michigan State Spartans, supported by 14.5, let Central Michigan thoroughly humiliate them with a last-second 29-27 loss on their home turf. The Spartans had a great timetable this year that offered them an opportunity to run the table (go undefeated) since they drew both Michigan and Penn State at home and didn’t need to play Ohio State.
All things being equal, Michigan State was out-instructed, out-played and had the right to lose.
Five groups went 2-0 and scored great successes to solidify their situation as up and comers to watch:
No.18 Nebraska, supported by 21, beat Arkansas State 38-9. No. 23 Cincinnati beat 1-AA SE Missouri State 70-3. Unranked Pittsburgh, supported by 10.5, beat a decent Buffalo group 54-27 out and about. Unranked Iowa beat in-state rival Iowa State 35-3 out and about.
