Top 10 College Football Games 2013 (Week 3)

Another week of college football action is in the books and boy were there some outstanding games that certainly shook up the rankings.  In perhaps the biggest game of the young season, the Michigan Wolverines upset the Notre Dame Fighting Irish 41-30.  The loss for the Irish came largely at the hands on their porous defense that couldn’t seem to stop the Wolverines who racked up 460 yards of total offense in front of 115,000 fans.  The win propelled Michigan all the way up to #11 in the FBS Associated Press Top 25 while the loss knocked Notre Dame all the way down to #21.

MiamiHurricanesNotre Dame was no alone in getting upset this week.  In another high profile game, the Miami Hurricanes took down the rival Florida Gators by a score of 21-16.  The Hurricanes were absolutely dominated by the Gators offense giving up over 200 yards more of total offense.  However, the Gators turned the ball over 5 times, including 4 in the red zone, to essentially hand the game over to the in-state rivals.

This past weekend also saw the unranked BYU Cougars take down the the Texas Longhorns 4-021.  The Longhorns were bounced out of the top 25 after being previously ranked as high as #15.  In addition, the USC Trojans (preisouly ranked #25) lost to the hapless Washington State Cougars and the #5 South Carolina Gamecocks lost to the #11 Georgia Bulldogs.  The Bulldogs moved up to #9 in the nation while South Carolina dropped to #13.

With the recap of week 2 action complete, let’s take a look at the Top 10 college football game for Week 3.

Top 10 College Football Games 2013 (Week 2)

The 2013 college football season certainly started out with a bang last week with some dominant performances and some big upsets.  The biggest upset of the week goes to the Eastern Washington Eagles who bested the #25 ranked Oregon State Beavers 49-46.  It’s one thing for any ranked team to lose to an unranked opponent in the opening week but, what makes matters worse is that Eastern Washington is a lowly FCS team (formerly NCAA Division I-AA).  Not a good week to be a Beaver fan!  The other big upset was #19 Boise State Broncos losing to the Washington Huskies.  While Boise State losing to a PAC-12 team isn’t shocking by any means, getting blown out 38-6 certainly is.

In addition to the upsets noted above, week 1 was also filled with great drama and story lines.  In perhaps the most interesting game Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel and the #7 Texas A&M Aggies took on the Rice Owls.  The game itself wouldn’t normally be all that interesting except for the fact that the Aggies star quarterback was suspended for the first half of the game due to some questionable off season behavior that included signing autographs for a shady memorabilia dealer.   Johnny football came in after halftime and did not disappoint.  He threw 3 touchdown passes on 6/8 passing and 94 yards.  If that wasn’t enough to keep the eye balls glued to the field, Manziel mimiced signing an autograph while getting up from a tackle and later was ejected for unsportmanslike conduct for pointing at the scoreboard after a TD pass in the fourth quarter.  Regardless of what you think of Manziel and the Aggies, they will be interesting to watch all season long.

In the Tickifieds Game of the Week, #17 Michigan will take on the #14 Notre Dame Fighting Irish.

Aldean, Swift Look to Catch 1D – Tickifieds Top 10 Weekly Searches

Can Jason Aldean supplant 1 Direction as the most search for concert?

College Football Top 10 Games Week 10 (2012)

Another week of college football is in the books and teams are still jockeying for position in the BCS Standings.  This week will be no exception as the LSU Tigers and Alabama Crimson Tide will meet in the SEC’s “Clash of the Titans” in this weeks Game of the Week (GOTW).

Their is certainly no love lost between these two bitter foes.  LSU will be looking for revenge following their loss last year in the BCS National Championhip game.  They would love nothing more than to knock Alabama out of the top spot in the standing and give themselves a shot at returning to the big game.  Alabama has had a target on their back all season.  They have lived up to expectations thus far but have yet to face a real challenge this year.  Their only wins over ranked teams this year have been over Michigan (#8 at the time) and Mississippi State (#11 at the time)- both teams have proven to be a bit overrated.  Not matter who wins, the BCS Championship picture will certainly change significantly after this weekend.

College Football Top 10 Games Week 10 (2012)

1.  #5 LSU Tigers vs #1 Alabama Crimson Tide

This is the matchup college football fans have been waiting for – the re-match of the 2011-12 BCS Championship Game.  LSU will need a win if they hope to have another shot at a BCS Title.

The K State Wildcats continue to dominate the Big 12 and could further build their nationals championship case with another win over a nationally ranked team.

The Trojans have fallen back to the pack a bit but that could all change with a win over the #4 Oregon Ducks.  Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum will certainly be rocking this weekend!

4.  #15 Mississippi State Bulldogs vs #16 Texas A&M Aggies

This should be a great game between 2 evenly matched teams in the SEC.  Miss State needs a big win to maintain their relevancy in the SEC.

5.  #18 Texas Tech Red Raiders vs #23 Texas Longhorns

It’s always a high anticipated game when these two Texas schools meet in a Big 12 match up.  This year even more so as both are ranked and vying for a spot atop the standings.

6.  #11 Oregon State Beavers vs Arizona State Sun Devils (5-3)

The OSU Beavers will look to break into the top 10 with a win over a pretty solid ASU football team.

7.  #6 Georgia Bulldogs vs Ole Miss Rebels

8.  #3 Notre Dame Fighting Irish vs Pitt Panthers

Notre Dame will return home to face the Pitt panthers after demolishing Oklahoma last weekend.  While Notre Dame should easily handle a mediocre Pitt team, fans are eager to cheer on the #3 team in the country.

9.  Michigan State Spartans vs #20 Nebraska Cornhuskers

MSU need a big win over the #20 Huskers in order to solidify their chance to earn a berth to a substantial bowl game.  Nebraska need another win for a chance to win the Big 10.

10.  UCLA Bruins vs #22 Arizona Wildcats

The Wildcats may be the nationally ranked team but the UCLA Bruins have a better record (6-2, 3-2 PAC 12) than the Wildcats (5-3, 2-3 PAC 12).  A win for UCLA and they should be a top 25 team.

College Football Top 10 Games Week 9 (2012)

Okalhoma Sooners FootballAfter 8 weeks of college football in the books, the BCS picture is still up in the air as teams are jockeying for position.  While the top two teams are from the SEC (Alabama and Florida), three teams will be looking to make their case for the BCS title game this week (Oregon, Kansas State and Notre Dame).  In this week’s Game of the Week (GOTW), Notre Dame will have their shot to get a quality win with a road game against the #8 Oklahoma Sooners.  A win for Notre Dame and they could move up a couple of notches and put themselves in a great position to be consider for the National Championship game.  No matter who you are rooting for it should be a great defensive battle on Saturday.

Michigan will look to stay unbeaten in the Big 10 but will have to beat a tough Cornhuskers team on the Road.
