REVIEWING WEEK EIGHT OF THE 2021 COLLEGE FOOTBALL SEASON

Dear Readers, 
Former Michigan State Head Coach Mark Dantonio was in attendance in those suites (as Pittsburgh Head Coach Pat Narduzzi’s guest) for the Clemson at Pittsburgh game. 
I hope all people who have an official vote for national awards really took note of a lot of players such as UTSA RB Sincere McCormick,  and more to name for their performances in wins over their respective opponents.

Take care all! Sincerely, RICH

RANKINGS ANALYSIS:TRICK OR TREAT! 

There is another shake-up and some change-ups in my top ten rankings. I had to change because of two undefeated teams losing
#1 Georgia is coming off a bye-week to prepare for their annual neutral-site (in Jacksonville, FL) against rival Florida… I will keep Cincinnati ranked #2 after a tough as expected 27-20 road win over Navy. The UC Bearcats are good enough to make up for that lackluster win over the Midshipmen and win out before a Nov.20 home game against SMU. This football team has a road game against Tulane this SAT (Noon, ESPN2)….I had to move Oklahoma down from #3 to #4 because of their lackluster performance in a 35-23 road win over Kansas. The Sooners could’ve done better in the 1st half. The Oklahoma offense couldn’t get a score on the board by halftime and should’ve done better than what the final score indicates. The Sooners ended up with 398 total yards (including 320 total yards in the 2nd half). Oklahoma QB Caleb Williams played like a Heisman Trophy contender by making good decisions and big plays when it mattered most even though he didn’t put up impressive numbers. This football team should be thankful that teams such as Alabama, Coastal Carolina, and Oregon have a loss. If all those teams remained undefeated, Oklahoma wouldn’t be in the top five rankings everywhere. Oklahoma better get together for a home game against Texas Tech this SAT (3:30 PM, ABC)…I moved Michigan up from #4 to #3 because of their 33-7 home win over Northwestern.I am convinced that the U-M Wolverines will get a road win over Michigan State, who moved from my OTMs to #9 in my top ten rankings, this SAT (Noon, FOX). The broadcasting crews of ESPN College GameDay and FOX Big Noon Kickoff will be there for respective kickoff shows…Alabama is back in the top five of my top ten rankings. A 52-24 home win over rival Tennessee helped them move up from #6 to #5. The Crimson Tide has a lot to address during this bye-week, such as finding themselves in 3rd down situations (converted 15-20 on 3rd down conversions) against the Volunteers….Oregon moved up from #6 to #8 after a 34-31 road win over UCLA. The Ducks should be able to win out before a Nov.20 road game against Utah. This football team will have a home game against Colorado this SAT (3:30 PM, FOX)…..Ohio State moved up from #9 to #7 after a 54-7 road win over Indiana. The Buckeyes keep getting better and better after that home loss against Oregon. This football team will have a home game against Penn State this SAT (7:30 PM, ABC)…Wake Forest has come beyond being one of the most surprising teams this season. THe Demon Deacons moved up from my OTMs to #8 in my top ten rankings. This football team is coming off a 70-56 road win against Army to get on their first 7-0 start since 1944. A lot of improvements need to be made on defense. Wake Forest has a home game against Duke this SAT (4 PM, ACCN)….Mississippi moved up from among my OTMs to #10 after a 31-17 home win over LSU. The Ole Miss Rebels are on a current three-game winning streak after a 42-21 road loss against Alabama. This football team has a road game against Auburn this SAT (7 PM, ESPN)…SMU remains undefeated with a 7-0 mark, including a 55-26 road win over Tulane this past THURS, to remain among my OTMs. If the Mustangs haven’t faced a major challenge this season, they will with a road game against Houston, who is on a 6-1 start, this SAT (7 PM, ESPN2). If the UH Cougars beat the SMU Mustangs, Houston will be among my OTMs. If SMU wins to remain undefeated, they should be in my top ten rankings and consider them a threat for Cincinnati, who will play each other in Cincy on Nov.20, 2021…Coastal Carolina moved down from #7 to among my OTMs after a 30-27 road loss against Appalachian State, who had the best chance of anybody to beat the CCU Chanticleers this season. Keep in mind, the App State Mountaineers won on a last-play FG to ruin Coastal Carolina’s dream season. The Chanticleers are a very talented football team and will rebound starting with a home game against Troy this THURS (7:30 PM, ESPN2)….Oklahoma State moved down from #5 to among my OTMS after a 24-21 road loss against Iowa State. The OSU Cowboys offense were one yard short of converting a 4th down into a 1st down. This football team was about to score a FG to force OT but couldn’t do what it took to remain undefeated. Oklahoma State will have a chance to redeem themselves with an easy homecoming game against Kansas this SAT (7 PM, FS1)…Iowa is coming off a bye-week after that disappointing 24-7 homecoming loss against Purdue while they were ranked #2 in the nation. Now, the Hawkeyes have a chance to redeem themselves and ruin someone else’s homecoming. This football team will have a road game against Wisconsin this SAT (Noon, ESPN). As we are in the midst of this season, this game could determine who wins the Big Ten West Division title. Iowa CB Riley Moss, who was leading the Big Ten in INTs, will be missing a second straight game because of a knee injury. But don’t forget about Minnesota in the Big Ten West Division race…Notre Dame continues to get better after that 24-13 home loss against Cincinnati four SATs ago. The Fighting Irish are coming off a 31-16 home win over USC to remain on a current four-game winning streak against the Trojans. This football team has a home game against North Carolina this SAT (7:30 PM, NBC), which will be their second straight week with a prime-time home game under the lights. This Notre Dame defense will be heavily challenged with All-American S Kyle Hamilton being forced to sit out because of a knee injury… UTSA is one of the most surprising teams in the nation. The Roadrunners are coming off their first-ever 8-0 start in school history, including a 45-16 road win over La Tech this past SAT. This football team has a road game against UTEP, who is also undefeated in C-USA play, this SAT (10:15 PM, ESPN2). The Miners are on a current four-game winning streak after a 54-13 road loss against Boise State. The winner could be playing the C-USA Championship Game…. I can’t forget about San Diego State, who is on their first 7-0 start since 1975. The SDSU Aztecs are coming off a tough as expected 20-14 road win over Air Force to remain undefeated. This football team has a road game against Fresno State this SAT (10:30 PM, CBSSN). If San Diego State wins, the Azteces are on their way to playing in the MW Championship Game… HAPPY HALLOWEEN EVERYONE AND CONTINUE TO BE SAFE OUT THERE!!!
