College Football Betting Power Rankings Week 10Editor
Another eye-opening week of college football is now in the books and while the rankings didn’t see nearly the shakeup that took place one week earlier, this week’s college football power rankings do show some changes from the previous week.
The top stays the same, but two more top-10 losses in Week 9 brought a lot of shuffling in the middle the latest top 25 rankings.
- Alabama – Rollin’, rollin’, rollin’…rawhide! The Crimson Tide crushed Tennessee 45-10 on Saturday. So, what else is new these days? Next up…LSU.
- Oregon – The Ducks opened up a can on UCLA by scoring 28 unanswered points in the second half.
- Florida State – So…it was North Carolina State’s turn to get embarrassed by Jameis Winston and the Seminoles last weekend huh? Florida State has scored 163 points in their last three games.
- Ohio State – The Buckeyes handed my beloved Penn State their worst loss since 1899 on Saturday, scoring 63 points in the process. Why this team keeps getting overlooked in the national title conversation is beyond me.
- Stanford – The Cardinal moved back into the top five, but their 20-12 win over Oregon State didn’t impress me.
- Baylor – The Bears beat Kansas 59-14 to top the 50-point plateau for the sixth time this season.
- Miami – The Hurricanes squeaked past Wake Forest on Saturday to remain undefeated, but their Week 10 matchup against Florida State isn’t looking too promising from where I’m sitting.
- Clemson – The Tigers got back in the win column, but I still can’t forget the way Florida State embarrassed them two weeks ago.
- Missouri – The Tigers gave away the Week 9 contest against South Carolina that they had well in hand. Now, they’re fighting more of an uphill battle, but I say this team is far better than you may realize.
- Oklahoma – The Sooners got a big conference win the last time out, but I still can’t get past the spanking they took from the mediocre Texas Longhorns in Week 7.
- Auburn – The Tigers crushed tiny Florida Atlantic 45-10 but that doesn’t mean anything to the nation’s elite teams – or the rest of Auburn’s SEC rivals for that matter.
- Texas A&M – Say what you want about Johnny Manziel, but the kid makes the game easy and has turned Teas A&M into an instant winner ever since his arrival. The Aggies topped the 50-point mark for the third time this season in Week 9.
- LSU – The Tigers pounded Furman on Saturday, but again, this win doesn’t mean a thing in the SEC, particularly since the Tigers lost their last real game at Mississippi in Week 8.
- South Carolina – The Gamecocks were ‘gifted’ their Week 9 road win over Mizzou.
- Texas Tech – The Red Raiders may be a lot better than anyone suspects. They looked really good even in falling to Oklahoma in Week 9.
- Fresno State – The Bulldogs are undefeated, but does anyone really believe that teams like Hawaii, Idaho and UNLV are in the same class of elite BCS title contenders like Alabama, Oregon and Florida State? Didn’t think so.
- Northern Illinois – Again, I like the undefeated record that Northern Illinois brings to the table. I just don’t think the caliber of their competition compares to other elite conferences.
- Oklahoma State – The Cowboys rolled all over Iowa State on Saturday, but their Week 6 road loss at awful West Virginia doesn’t look very good at all.
- Louisville – Teddy Bridgewater and the Cardinals rolled over South Florida, but I’d like to see this team do it against an elite team.
- UCLA – How the Bruins remain n the top 25 after the spanking they took from Oregon is beyond me college football fanatics.
- Michigan – The explosive Wolverines had the week off in preparation of their annual clash against in-state rival Michigan State.
- Michigan State – The Spartans pounded Illinois in Week 9, but their Week 10 matchup against Michigan will be far more revealing – for both teams.
- Central Florida – The Knights are for real – sand they’d be undefeated if not for a close, 28-25 loss to South Carolina in Week 4. Still, this team is dangerous with a capital ‘D’.
- Wisconsin – The Badgers may have two losses, but this underrated team’s defeats were a 2-point road loss at Arizona State and a 7-point road loss to Ohio State and it looks like they may be able to run the table from this point on in the Big Ten.
- Notre Dame – The Fighting Irish could win their remaining games to finish 10-2 this season, but it won’t be enough to get them back in legitimate BCS title contention.
