School football’s fifth week uncovered the country’s 6 most fortunate groups Missouri, Texas Tech, Brigham Young (BYU), Kansas, Boise State and Vanderbilt. They were the 6 groups among the AP Top 25 Poll who had a bye week, saving them from a potential bombshell misfortune.
The other 19 Top 25 groups didn’t admission so well in Week 5 as just 10 of the 19 won (an insufficient 53%) while 9 more-including 3 of the best 4 groups lost.
Among the 9 positioned groups that lost, 6 submitted the inexcusable sin of losing to unranked groups, a flat out no-no in the event that you need to be in the chase for the public title. You can quite well bid farewell to the public title any desires for Southern California, Wisconsin, Wake Forest, Clemson, Illinois and Texas Christian (TCU).
The greatest washout was No. 1-positioned University of Southern California (USC, the University of Shoulda Coulda), which went to the Corvallis (OR) sanctum of the Oregon State Beavers. The Beavers, an unranked group at 1-2 who had effectively lost away games at Stanford and Penn State, chosen to take out their frightfulness on the Trojans, overwhelming USC 21-0 in the primary half and holding tight for a 27-21 triumph.
USC ought to have known better, since the Trojans were annoyed with the Beavers 33-31 during their last excursion to Corvallis two years prior. That misfortune finished Southern Cal’s 38-game standard season series of wins.
No. 4-positioned Florida facilitated unranked Mississippi and quickly lost 31-30 with crummy guard and its star quarterback Tim Tebow, last year’s Heisman Trophy victor, having a terrible day. ข่าวแกจเจ็ต Tebow was sacked multiple times by holding the ball excessively long, toppled 4 beneficiaries profound, lost a bumble that transformed into an Ole Miss score, and neglected to change over on a run endeavor with a basic fourth down and 2 feet to go at the Ole Miss 32-yard-line with 40 seconds left.
Florida won the primary half 17-7 yet lost the second half 24-13. It is a misfortune that mentor Urban Meyer and his players will remember forever, nor should they.
No. 9 Wisconsin drove by 19 and was all over unranked Michigan yet let the Wolverines back into the game by surrendering 20 focuses in the fourth quarter, permitting Michigan to make the most of its greatest home rebound in history and give new mentor Rich “I’m Not Hitched to West Virginia” Rodriguez his first success at Michigan, 27-25.
No. 16 Wake Forest spotted unranked Navy 17 focuses on its home field and never returned while losing 24-17.
No. 20 Clemson drove unranked Maryland 17-6 at the half yet couldn’t score in the subsequent half while losing at home, 20-17. Here is a news streak: Apparently Maryland is a ton better than Clemson this year.
No. 23 East Carolina facilitated unranked Houston and failed horrendously, 41-24. East Carolina’s initial season prevails upon Virginia Tech and West Virginia are looking less great consistently.
The other 3 positioned groups that lost basically lost to positioned rivals. No. 3 Georgia facilitated No. 8 Alabama and was overwhelmed by the Crimson Tide 41-30 in a game that was not close to as close as its score. No. 22 Illinois ventured out to No. 12 Penn State and made the Nittany Lions look great in Happy Valley as the Illini went down, 38-24. No. 24 Texas Christian (TCU) ventured out to No. 2 Oklahoma and discovered why you would prefer not to play the Sooners at home, losing 35-10.
The Georgia Bulldogs just got beat up, and at home no less. Georgia was positioned No. 1 in the pre-season AP Top 25 Poll and will presently experience a plunge in the rankings. Illinois, Clemson and East Carolina should all be kicked out of the Top 25 this week.
Seven other positioned groups won, some astonishingly, some not. They included:
No. 5 LSU at home 34-24 more than 1-4 Mississippi State (not amazing), No. 7 Texas at home 52-10 over Arkansas (amazing), No. 13 South Florida out and about 41-10 over North Carolina State (great), No. 14 Ohio State at home 34-21 over Minnesota (the Gophers came in unbeaten), No. 15 Auburn at home 14-12 over Tennessee (genuinely, not great), No. 17 Utah at home 37-21 more than 1-AA Weber State (beating a 1-AA group isn’t amazing), and No. 25 Fresno State out and about 36-31 over UCLA (barely amazing, given the present status of UCLA football).College Football – 9 AP Top 25 Teams Lose, 6 to Unranked Teams, USC, Georgia & Florida All Lose
