College Football 2015, Week Six!

127Following their lackluster performance last week against the Purdue Boilermakers, the Spartans dropped to #4 in the AP Poll.  The Spartans were on the road this week to New Jersey where they faced the Scarlett Knights of Rutgers University.  The Spartans struggled offensively and did not look sharp, but they were able to score late in the fourth quarter to secure the victory. As of this weekend, only thirteen of the top-25 teams remain unbeaten.  Ohio State was able to maintain their rank atop the top twenty-five and the Big Ten still has five teams represented (Ohio State [#1], Michigan State [#4], Northwestern [#13], Michigan [#18], and Iowa [#22]), we’ll see if the rankings change later today especially considering Michigan’s victory over Northwestern.

Next up for the Spartans: on the road to visit their much-improved cross-state rivals: the Wolverines of the University of Michigan in another top-25 match-up.  Go Green!

The upsets this week included:
Oklahoma (#10) losing to unranked Texas by seven (7) points.
Northwestern (#13) losing to Michigan (#18).
USC (#17) losing to unranked Washington by five (5) points.
Georgia (#19) losing to unranked Tennessee by seven (7) points.

The close calls this week (games that were won by a touchdown or less) included:
TCU (#2) defeating unranked Kansas State by seven (7) points.
Michigan State (#4) defeating unranked Rutgers by seven (7) points.
Utah (#5) defeating Cal (#23) by six (6) points.
Florida State (#12) defeating unranked Miami by five (5) points.
Oklahoma State (#21) defeating unranked West Virginia by seven (7) points in overtime.

Top-25 match-ups won by the higher-ranked team included:
