Appalachian State wins their first game against a ranked team since 2007 (#5 Michigan), knocking off #14 Coastal Carolina 30-27 on a FG with :00 left.

Well see if Coastal Carolina falls out of the AP Top 25, and if not, how far they'll tumble.  They weren't ever going to get into the Playoff, but probably the second biggest win for App State (a distant second).


Clemson, who fell out of the Top 25 (No 26, still ranked in the coaches poll) has a valid chance to return with a win in Pittsburgh.


Last week's Top five include: Georgia, Cincinnati, Oklahoma, Alabama, and Ohio State.  The bigger story will be seeing where the CFB Playoff committee slots the Bearcats during those rankings which should be starting soon

It took 9 OTs but Illinois topples #7 Penn State 20-18. Elsewhere, no. 2 Cincinnati and #3 Oklahoma overcome halftime deficits to win their respective games.

No League Championship Game Sevens this season as Atlanta joins Houston in the Fall Classic after both Pennant winners took care of business immediately upon their return home (Game 6).

It would have been a shocker IMO if Atlanta blew it again, but only with injuries to LA's main pieces.  With Los Angeles being the 28th team booted from the 2021 season, there will be a new champion.  Either it's Atlanta winning something for the first time in over a quarter century or Dusty Baker finally getting it done (and Houston winning the title likely without major controversy)

Sorry for the OT post.  I'm not sure how I ended up posting Baseball stuff in the College Football field.  I guess 2-3 hours of decent sleep in the past 48 hours doesn't help, but nevertheless, I'm surprised about the content of my above post


I likely meant to post stuff related to Penn State's fall along with Iowa State continuing to roll (against the best) in October. where they're all but undefeated

Georgia and Cincinnati remain at 1 and 2 in the AP top 25 while Alabama jumps to no. 3 and Oklahoma drops to no. 4. Ohio State rounds out the top 5. Georgia has Florida this week at the World's Largest Cocktail Party (CBS, 3:30 ET) while Cincinnati visits Tulane (ESPN2, 12 noon ET) and Bama has the bye before their tilt against LSU November 6.

Two days after their home loss to Kansas State, the Texas Tech Red Raiders have dismissed football coach Matt Wells and have appointed offensive coordinator Sonny Cumbie to be the interim head coach the rest of the season.

That's a bit surprising (or was); Texas Tech is one win away from being Bowl Eligible.  To be fair, it's been going downhill overall so that's that.  Their remaining games include Iowa State, Oklahoma State, and Baylor, following a road game at Oklahoma.  Very possible that the Red Raiders going winless down the stretch

Georgia has Florida this week at the World's Largest Cocktail Party (CBS, 3:30 ET) while Cincinnati visits Tulane (ESPN2, 12 noon ET) and Bama has the bye before their tilt against LSU November 6.

Cincinnati is getting a ton of love, and they deserve it.  Man, imagine a Group of Five team being number one.  They'd need Georgia to lose for that to happen.  I don't think the Bulldogs will lose before the SEC Title game.  It would be the Bearcats best shot at being Number One.  Sadly, by then, teams like Oklahoma and the Big Ten leader will jump them before it can happen.  That, and if it's Alabama that can topple the Bulldogs in the 30th SEC Title Game, then they probably would reclaim the top spot (with help including the Big 10 and Big 12 killing each other).

The biggest question to be answered will not be answered until Tuesday (November 2nd).  That is the first official release of the College Football Playoff Rankings.  The Bearcats were sorta cheated out of a spot last year; however, no Group of Five team has made it in.  At one point, Cincinnati was a Power SIX team so it would be fair enough if they get in this year.  They were undefeated in 2009, but got passed over for Texas and Alabama (right call).  Then they got killed by then reigning champion Florida (defending for a minute in Early 2010) without the head coach that led them there.

While the CFB Playoff rankings will be the measuring stick over the AP Poll and the Coaches Poll, three well-respected people in Pollack, Galloway, and Herbie all have Cincinnati in their Top 3  They also have Ohio State ahead of Michigan, and that is totally cool since they'll play each other later this season.  If Michigan wins for the first time in a decade against Ohio State, then they'll pass them (unless they somehow lose 2+ games before the Big Game)

Michigan State jumps to no. 5 in the AP top 25 after topping no. 6 Michigan. Wake Forest enters the top 10 after thrashing Duke.

CBF Rankings in about an hour and a half.  It will be interesting to see how high Wake Forest goes, if Cincinnati is in the Top 4, and if Ohio State will be ranked higher or lower than Michigan State

Cincinnati ranked #6 is completely unacceptable.

Yeah, it's messed up, but the fact is Cincinnati at No. 6 is completely non-shocking.  I could see their exclusion from the Top 4 coming many miles and several weeks ago.  It is disappointment since they were so high on the AP and Coaches polls.  There was even a debate that they'd be No 1 had it not been for Georgia.

As soon as they revealed Alabama at No 2, I knew that it wasn't happening for the Bearcats.  They haven't lost a game in a while, and yet, they have to win out and get help.  That's without counting the fact that Notre Dame has to keep winning.  By the way, with Michigan State and Ohio State ranked over them, that doesn't help.  Lastly, the likelihood of Wake Forest , and to a greater extent, Oklahoma jumping them remain a grand possibility

It's upset Saturday, that's for sure!  Two Top 10 teams, both unbeaten, fell to unranked opponents on the road.  With Michigan State and Wake Forest both losing to Purdue & North Carolina, respectively, the aftermath leaves two more Power Five conferences without a "perfect to this point" team.  Georgia & Oklahoma are holding for the SEC & Big 12, respectively.  Wake Forest probably had little to no shot anyway, and Michigan State isn't gone yet.  They'll have to survive against Ohio State and get a little help, but the ACC is officially dead in terms of the CFB Playoff (a first since Day 1 for the conference).

Alabama, Ohio State, Oregon, Cincy, and as mentioned, Georgia hold and should be okay in terms of the rankings.  Cincy gets some help but sorta said no thanks after barely surviving
