-- Houston—What a collection of stiffs they’ve beaten, but they covered all five, so good for them. Being a 9.5-point home dog to BYU says a lot.
-- Fresno State—Have wins by 52-51/41-40 scores and damn near blew a 42-3 lead at Hawai’i. Looking at their schedule, 11-0 is very possible, but November 9 at Wyoming will be dicey.
-- Northern Illinois—Won by 31 at Purdue, also won at Iowa, but all six opponents scored 20+ points. Senior QB, new coach, interesting team. Not sure if they're real good or the Big Dozen teams stink. Or both.
-- Missouri—Franklin’s injury puts crimp in what was a great start for Pinkel’s squad. tough games coming up with a backup QB.
-- Texas Tech—Two QBs are a walk-on and a freshman, but they score points. Meat of their schedule lies ahead; the two Oklahoma schools on consecutive Saturdays, plus Baylor and Texas.
-- Miami—Upset the Gators and crushed Ga Tech at home, but have trip to Florida State ahead and tonight’s game in Chapel Hill won’t be easy.
-- Baylor—Bears put up video game numbers against the weak sisters; they should jog past next two opponents, then the tough part—a Thursday game against Oklahoma November 7 should be excellent. Bears are going to need deep pockets to keep Briles as their coach.
-- Louisville—Friday’s game with Central Florida pits two best teams in the new AAC. Cardinals have one of three best QBs in country, could easily finish 11-0 if they beat UCF.
-- Ohio State—Who would be a better mortician, Urban Meyer or Jim Nantz? Nantz has the whole “Hello friends….” line down pat, but no one is as dour as Meyer. Not even close. Seriously, even on TV, Meyer was a sour guy. Don't think I ever heard him laugh once in his year on TV.
-- UCLA-- Mora's team is at Stanford, at Oregon the next two weeks; win those two games, and the national title chase could go thru Westwood.
-- Florida State-- Seminoles haven't won in Death Valley since 2001, and were favored in three of the five losses. That said, freshman QB Winston is best QB they've had in a long time. FSU-Clemson will be fun Saturday.
-- Clemson-- Home side won last six games with Florida State; if they win this week, biggest obstacle left to national title game is November 30 at South Carolina, which has beaten the Tigers the last four years.
-- Alabama-- Won 49-42 at Texas A&M, then allowed 16 points in next four games against pile of stiffs. LSU comes calling November 9.
-- Oregon-- 45-24 win at Washington is their closest game; would love to see them play Alabama-LSU winner for the national title, seeing how they sent Tennessee of SEC home with a 59-14 whupping last month.
