I'm incredibly interested to see Utah - Washington. Biggest test of the season so far for Washington, but I think they still win by 14. FSU is going to play their asses off against Clemson. Miami/ND could be a really good game. I'm really excited for Wisconsin - Nebraska as well, I'm not sold on the Nebraska hype yet, but then again, I can't say I've seen them play a ton either.

There was talk that Derwin would be back for this game, but he's not, Bobo Wilson is going to be out as well.

Undefeateds on the road against *decent* – to good – teams:

  • West Virginia @ Oklahoma State (FPI: 44.4%)
  • Washington @ Utah (FPI: 79.2%)
  • Baylor @ Texas (FPI: 62.5%)
  • Boise State @ Wyoming (FPI: 83.7%)
  • Nebraska @ Wisconsin (FPI: 31.2%)
  • Clemson @ Florida State (FPI: 55.7%)
(FPI # here is the probability that the undefeated visitor wins this game.)

Probability that all of these undefeateds win today: 3.2%

Somebody's going down...I'm guessin' at least a couple of 'em.

Update: forgot Clemson initially

Really surprised to see Michigan State hanging out with Michigan right now. Thought this one would be a blowout by now.

houstons fall from grace has been rather odd. there's speculation the teams checked out and hermann's just waiting til the end of the year to leave. wonder how hurt Ward is

Really just makes zero sense to me. They looked every bit like the real deal early on. Today has to be pretty embarrassing for them.

Michigan starting to pull away as expected. Louisville and Houston both down going into the fourth, but I bet both of them find a way to pull it out.

Too bad for OK St they lost on that crazy last play in the Central Michigan game. They'd be looking pretty good right now at 6-1 if they hang on against WV.

Yeah, I don't think OK State loses this one. I'm interested to see where both those teams wind up in the CFB rankings this week
