This week was a bit of a borefest. For the first time in a long while the entire top ten won their matches. Even worse than that, there wasn’t even any close matchups or nailbiters to entertain. So what did happen this weekend? Most teams simply reaffirmed their position in the college football landscape.
The top four should remain unchanged this week as each team rolled, including two of them on the road. The most notable was Clemson, which traveled to Chestnut Hill to face a ranked Boston College team. BC played tough but when all was said and done, they couldnt slay the giant and fell 27-7.
Florida State lost by at least 21 for the fifth time this season, losing at Notre Dame 42-13. The Florida Gators overcame a middling South Carolina Gamecock team after scoring three touchdowns in the final 16 minutes to win by 4, once again playing down to the competition. Nebraska looks to be turning the corner by scoring more than they ever have in a single game since joining the Big Ten. All three of these teams have new coaches that are proven winners but are struggling to change the culture of the program. Godspeed because when traditional powers are good, it makes college football good.
The Elldee Sports Best Bets went undefeated for a second consecutive week on college football games. We are now winning at a 77% clip in college. With those numbers, Elldee Sports is proving to be one of the best predictors over the last 5 weeks. If the playoffs started today they would look exactly as last week did with Alabama, Clemson, Notre Dame, and Michigan making it, as all teams did what was needed regardless of who they played. Until next week, good luck!
