It is hard to watch college football without the Big 10 and Pac 12, Notre Dame, for the first time in their 132 years is in a conference so they can play games. Things they are a changing but at least we had some college football.
10th ranked Notre Dame easily handled Duke 27 – 13 and the Fighting Irish moved up to 7th in the polls since Big 10 teams are that were in the AP poll have been taken off the polls.
Clemson is still number 1 as they handled Wake Forest very easily 27 – 13. Up next for Clemson is Citadel which should be an easy set up game for the Tigers and a game to get the bench some real time playing experience before conference play begins.
Number 23 Iowa State did not fare as well as the other ranked teams this week losing at home to the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. The Ragin’ Cajuns have never beat a Top 25 team and the last ramked team they beat was 1996 against Texas A&M at Home. But it seems the Sun Belt conference will no longer be pushovers for other conferences as Arkansas State beat Kansas State.
Looking forward, most ranked teams have not played a game yet and therefore still have what they believe is a pushover on their schedule for next week. I hope they were watching this week as the pushovers are fighting back.
