The state of Mississippi has two college football teams in the top three in America and it’s also time to categorize some college football games from over the weekend — one of those I did not think I would ever type.
Best of the Best
#5 Baylor over #9 TCU 61-58
#3 Mississippi State over #2 Auburn 38-23
#3 Ole Miss over #14 Texas A&M 35-20
Two very exciting contests. The Bears and Horned Frogs kept America entertained, while Mississippi State bested Auburn to leap frog Florida State for the top spot in both polls. Also, Ole Miss defeated the Aggies, who aren’t doing quite well without Johnny Football.
Who Saw That Coming?
Duke over #22 Georgia Tech 31-25
USC over #10 Arizona 28-26
The Yellow Jackets just barely lost to Duke, a team who has shown over the last year or so that they are not a team to sleep on. On the other hand, the Arizona Wildcats have had a phenomenal year, and still are, but will have to get past this loss – which they should have no problem doing.
#13 Georgia over #23 Missouri 34-0
#12 Oregon over #18 UCLA 42-30
#7 Alabama over Arkansas 14-13
These three games are considered toss up games because frankly, I don’t know how I really feel about them. I mean, Oregon and UCLA aren’t really what they were last year and neither is Georgia and Missouri. Meanwhile, Alabama isn’t what everyone thought they would be this season and Arkansas is, well, Arkansas.
