I’m visiting my parents, and ironically, this is the first week of actually watching college football. They aren’t much into football.
Right now, it’s almost halftime in the USC-Nebraska game. It looks like the Trojans simply have more athletic players.
Notre Dame is awful. They haven’t scored on offensive touchdown in 3 games.
It’s amazing how the ABC commentators were talking about how well the Penn State defense did. They allowed 24 points against perennial loser Buffalo. Buffalo’s scoring came after the game was decided.
Baylor…at least they’re winning. They tacked on another touchdown to lead Texas St. 28-17 early in the 4th. It’s not very confidence inspiring.
Despite my “Go Horns!” promise, I must say that Texas cannot possibly be a top 10 team. They barely beat Arkansas St. and now Central Florida. Unfortunately, voters aren’t smart enough to take this into account, and will keep the Longhorns in the top 10 simply because they won. The Horns and Aggies are closer in skill than the rankings would indicate (if it’s any comfort, I don’t believe Baylor is a top 10 program either.)
Friggin’ Gators! They crushed Tennessee 59-20
on the road. Last year, I watched a LOT of Gators football, and thought that Tim Tebow would be an inadequate passer. He didn’t pass a lot, going 14/19, but it was for almost 300 yards.
FAU Owls went into Minnesota and beat them 42-39.
Miami-FIU had their rematch after last year’s brawl, the Hurricanes only winning 23-9. I wonder how FIU running back Ned did. Must tell you his amazing story in another post (although it’s quite old news…)
