College Football Top 25 Week 6

Oregon Ducks Football vs Cal Bears 2013

Welcome everyone to our week 6 Rivals Rundown Top 25 rankings!  As you’ll see below we’ll really rank the Top 30 with those that are on the radar here at the Rundown.  Normally, here we write this big rant about what happened the previous weekend in College Football, so… Here is our Rivals Rundown Rant!  First Oklahoma State, what happened to our Top 10 team!?!  Not to mention one of our preseason favorites in the Big 12!  Urgh, the sad part is that game had upset written all over it, coaching buddies, an underperforming West Virginia team that no one was talking about, and an Oklahoma State team that clearly was looking past their early Saturday opponent.  The pay the ultimate price, dropping from the Top 10 out of the Top 25!!!  They will have to fight their way back, there are too many teams, too many teams playing good football for us to give them respect after that loss.  Next, South Carolina and UCF, neither team really moved and UCF had their chances but as we often see in upset games, the team that has been tested already in the season finds a way to close (See Fresno State).  Moving to our favorite game of the weekend, Arizona State and USC.  Now, this was a good game until Arizona State realized that they could out play USC on both sides of the ball, took the energy from the home crowd and stomped on a team that over the last 10 years had crushed Arizona States dreams over rising to the top of the PAC.  We will mention, that USC acted way too early to fire Lane, the program doesn’t want to realize or admit that the NCAA sanctions are affecting them.  We welcome back the Sun Devils and the Hokies to the Top 25, why?  They both proved that they are Top 25 teams, the Sun Devils for Offense and the Hokies for Defense.  The only new team to the Top 25 is the Maryland Terrapins.  The Game of the week last weekend was Georgia and LSU, both of which moved a little but we still see each of these teams as outside bet for the National Title.  Maryland will get their big test this week to see if they belong or if they are pretenders.  Other teams to keep your eye on, Iowa, East Carolina and Northern Illinois, we’re still not sure how the stack up next to the rest of our Top teams.  So here is our Rivals Rundown Top 25 for Week 6 of the College Football Season!  Enjoy, Share and Comment.

Rivals Rundown College Football Top 25 Week 4

Nebraska vs UCLA College Football 2013

Week 4 of College Football is now upon us and here at the Rundown we’re feeling pretty good. Not only did our team steal a W and stay in the Top 25. Our Top 25 had little movement, which any week that happens, means we’re doing something right over here. The biggest Loser of Week 3 was Nebraska and that hurts, not only did we post a blog just about how “bullish” we were on the Huskers a couple of weeks back but we had them in our Top 10! Sitting watching the beginning of that game, we were waiting to see what Nebraska’s Defense would do and man did those black uniforms look good! So good that UCLA thought the jersey’s were freshly laid pavement and left tire treads all over ‘em. So Nebraska quickly became our Most Overrated pick, let’s see if they can fight back into our Top 25 or if they falter…Back to the rankings, So Texas A&M might be the first team ever to move up in rankings based off of a loss but the way they played against Alabama, the deserve to be higher, the other big movers are UCLA and Ole Miss. We would like to point out that Arizona State and Wisconsin didn’t move, we had them in and they will both stay in… until this coming Saturday when the Sun Devils square off with our #11 team Stanford Cardinal then they might be the biggest mover. No big match-ups other then that PAC-12 North vs South. Look later this week for a preview of a couple of our favorite games. Also, if you missed our story on CJ Brown go check it out, his stat-line: Passing 15 of 28 for 277 1TD 1INT Rushing 16 for 122 1 TD and put Maryland on our Rivals Rundown Top 25 Radar, still the best player no one is talking about.
