College Football Take Two….

by Larry Leek

After some very exciting games in week 1, Week 2  looks to continue and add to what the season opener (for most teams) started by having some really nice matchups. Last week #11 Florida St. proved to be no match for #1 Alabama, #2 Ohio St. struggled early but pulled away in the end over unranked Indiana and #3 Michigan  proved they are still a force after destroying #21 FloridaNow it’s time for college football 2017 Part 2.

#4 Clemson gets their chance Saturday to prove they still belong in the top tier of college football when they host #9 Auburn while #15 Oklahoma has a score to settle with #2 Ohio St. after they were humiliated at home last year by the Buckeyes, now they get their turn to do a role reversal. Other games of note are #8 USC at #17 Stanford and #13 Arkansas at #18 TCU

Other games to watch that could produce possible upsets are #19 Boise Stat Washington St, #16 Georgia at Notre Dame and #14 Louisville at N. Carolina.

This Is Whats On My Sports Mind about this subject.


I just happened to notice that ESPN has MY South Carolina Gamecocks listed at #24 in their power rankings check it out here:                                   

I was pleasantly surprised when I read that, well this ole Sports Mind has to see a bit more before I’ll be ready to consider them worthy of the WOYSM College Top 25, But I do hope that becomes a reality, they get another test Saturday at Missouri. Go Gamecocks!!

When the two Tigers get together in Death Valley, (Clemson SC) to decide the leader of the pack it should prove to be one heck of a game, fur should be flying everywhere with one cat left standing at the end of the battle. This Sports Mind questions if the Sooners will succeed with their quest for vengeance against the Buckeyes,  I can see the Cardinal falling to the Trojans and the Horned Frogs getting trampled by the Razorbacks.

As far as mild upsets this Sports Mind can definitely see the Cougars mauling the Broncos AND the Irish beating the Bulldawgs,  but I’m not sold on the Tar Heels upsetting the Cardinals. We Shall SEE. Enjoy YOUR football weekend….
