College Football 2015, Week Eight!

127Coming off their momentous, last-second victory over Michigan in the Big House last week, the Spartans hosted the Hoosiers of Indiana yesterday.  Wow, it was quite the dogfight through three-and-a-half quarters before the Spartans were able to pull away late in the fourth quarter to remain unbeaten at 8-0.   As of this weekend, Twelve 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 four teams represented (Ohio State [#1], Michigan State [#7], Iowa [#12]), and Michigan [#15].  With some upsets among the top-25, these rankings might change when the new polls come out later today.

Next up for the Spartans: a bye on Halloween weekend, then on the road to Lincoln, Nebraska, in early November to face the Cornhuskers.  Go Green!

The upsets this week included:
Utah (#3) losing to unranked USC.
Florida State (#9) losing to unranked Georgia Tech by six (6) points on the final play of the game.
Texas A&M (#15) losing to Ole Miss (#24).
Cal (#20) losing to unranked UCLA.

The close calls this week (games that were won by a touchdown or less) included:
Alabama (#8) defeating unranked Tennessee by five (5) points.
Duke (#23) defeating unranked Viriginia Tech by only two (2) points in 4OT.

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