College Football 2016, Week Seven!

The Spartans lost their fourth game in a row (to Northwestern in East Lansing) . . . Obviously a rebuilding year, but yikes! There are only eleven unbeaten teams remaining in the AP Top-25 (seven of the top ten). More surprisingly, there are seven (7) teams on this list that already have two losses (three of which are SEC teams) and one (1) team that has three losses.  But, regardless, the Big Ten Conference continues to have four teams in the top-10:   Ohio State [#2], Michigan [#4], Wisconsin [#8],  and Nebraska [#10].

Next up for the Spartans: on the road against the Terrapins of Maryland.  Go Green!

The upsets this week included:
Ole Miss (#12) losing to Arkansas (#22) by four (4) points.
Miami (#16) losing to unranked North Carolina by seven (7) points.
Virginia Tech (#17) losing to unranked Syracuse
