Crazy weekend of college football

This weekend once again showed why college football is the greatest sport there is. Upsets, comebacks, you name it. And my rankings were shaken up like a good martini.

All is right in the college football world again. Alabama is back on top after Georgia forgot to bring its defense to Baton Rouge. Clemson moves up to number 2 without playing a down. Kentucky ascends to number 3 after not playing and having lost the week before. I know, algorithms can make you scratch your head sometimes! Florida’s comeback against Vanderbilt moves them up to 4 and Notre Dame’s thrilling (NOT!) squeaker against Pitt slides them into the top 5.

I wonder if Penn State realized that losing a heartbreaker to Ohio State also meant they would lose to Michigan State as well?

Virginia Tech’s once great defense got torched again. But they somehow found a way to drive 95 yards in the last two minutes to pull a win out against UNC. Losing 9 starters on defense can even be too much for a defensive guru like Bud Foster.

Here’s my FBS rankings.
