College Football 2016, Week Nine!

The Spartan skid continues with their loss to the University of Michigan yesterday.  And, the number of undefeated teams continues to shrink.  There are now only five unbeaten teams remaining (Alabama, Michigan, Clemson, Washington, and Western Michigan).  The Big Ten Conference has five teams in the AP top-25 rankings:   Michigan [#2], Ohio State [#6],  Nebraska [#7], Wisconsin [#11], and Penn State [#24], but some of these may change slightly following yesterday’s games.

Next up for the Spartans: on the road to face the fighting Illini of Illinois.   Go Green!

The upsets this week included:
Nebraska (#7) losing to Wisconsin (#11) by six (6) points in overtime.
Baylor (#8) losing to unranked Texas by one (1) point.
West Virginia (#10) losing to unranked Oklahoma State.
Boise State (#13) losing to unranked Wyoming by two (2) points.
Tennessee (#18) losing to unranked South Carolina by three (3) points.
