The College playing fields this past weekend were not filled with season changing games but a number of Saturday’s events did in fact muddy the College Football Playoff landscape. Oklahoma, the preseason Big 12 favorite, lost in Norman to Iowa State. The Cyclones didn’t have their starting quarterback and were 30-plus underdogs in the contest. Odds to Win 2018 College Football Playoffs.
College Football Week #6 Recaps
- The Miami Hurricanes are no longer 0-for-the-Jimbo-Fisher-era versus Florida State.
- Ed Orgeron and his staff bounced back with a win over the Florida Gators.
- With Oklahoma’s loss the Horned Frogs are now the Big 12 favorites and top CFP longhsot.
- Georgia rushed for 423 yards in 45-14 win over Vanderbilt and are ‘Bama’s primary SEC challenger.
- How serious is Clemson quarterback Kelly Bryant‘s ankle injury?
- What is the over/under on when Arkansas pays HC Bret Bielema‘s $15.5 million buyout?
- How can Michigan head coach and former NFL quarterback Jim Harbaugh not roster a blue-chip signal caller?
Don’t call it a season ending loss for the Sooners but it severely damages any chance they have to be a part of the College Football Playoff Final Four this season. Elsewhere, Michigan State created five Michigan turnovers and defeated the Wolverines 14-10 at the Big House.
Despite a strong effort from Texas A&M on Saturday in a closely contested 27-19 affair against No 1 ranked Alabama the public continue to bombard the Vegas and Offshore Sportsbooks with Crimson Tide future money. The latest update at the World’s Largest Race and Sportsbook have Nick Saban’s Tide at 6-to-5 odds to win the 2017 College Football Championship.
In conclusion expect the Florida State Seminoles fan base to ask for an asterisk to be placed by Saturday’s loss to intrastate rival Miami. The ‘Noles are now 1-3 on the season and non-contenders for the CFP bracket and New Year’s Day bowl. However, FSU faithful can’t pin their disappointing start to the injury of star quarterback Deondre Francois. The Achilles for this team is their defense. As a result the Hurricanes took the ball and drove 75 yards and scored the go-ahead touchdown with just six seconds remaining for the 24-20 win. It was the first win against Florida State for Miami since 2009.
