College football rankings: Colorado drops to No. 1 1 as Virginia Tech, other Power Five teams join Bottom 25

25. Boston College 2-4 The Eagles had come close to the edge of the poll after a 1-3 start, but a 34-33 win over Louisville gave them some breathing room. A respite that quickly disappeared after this week’s 31-3 loss to Clemson. (Last week: Uncategorized) 24. Fresno State 1-4 Fresno is another newcomer to the ballot, having lost four straight. In Fresno’s defense, his last three games have been on the road and two of his losses have been in the range of a score. Of course, one of those one-score losses was against UConn, which takes away some of the shine. Either way, life doesn’t get any easier this week against a San Jose State team that looks like the best Mountain West has to offer. (NR) 23.Virginia Tech 2-4 Hokies fans have asked me why they haven’t been ranked for the past few weeks, and the answer was simple. They were 2-2! Well, now they’re 2-4 after a 45-29 loss to Pitt, and that 27-10 win over No. 25 Boston College looks less impressive each week. (NR) 22. Arkansas State 2-4 The Red Wolves came out of The Bottom 25 last week after beating ULM, but the huge gravity of our poll saw them fall back this week thanks to a 42-20 loss to James Madison. (NR) 21. UTEP 3-4 I got really annoyed with my formula when three-win teams are in the standings so early in the season, but the Miners come back after a 41-31 loss at Louisiana Tech. Personally, I think miners are better than this, but the final 25 gods get what the final 25 gods want. (NR) 20. Nevada 2-4 The Wolf – SPACE – Pack escaped for a week, but lost to No. 1 Colorado State 17-14 will get you back quickly. The Rams got an untimed save late in the game and scored a 43-yard field goal to win it and knock Nevada down. The Pack gets another shot at winning this week against No. 2 Hawaii. Could they lose to No. 1 and no. 2 consecutive weeks? (NR) 19. New Mexico 2-4 Since I don’t have much time to watch TV during the season, my wife and I always catch a show. We’ll catch an episode or two when time permits. This year, it’s Breaking Bad, which takes place in New Mexico. It is a beautiful state. There aren’t any big football teams, but it’s a great state. Perhaps the backdrop will make this week’s game against No. 6 New Mexico State one to watch. (NR) 18. UConn 3-4 Another team with three victories in the standings, but this one doesn’t annoy me as much as UTEP. UConn should never feel bad about winning back-to-back games, but the Huskies’ three wins have come against Central Connecticut, No. 24 Fresno State and No. 8 CRF. They were trailed by 135 points in their four losses. These victories will not erase this kind of damage. (11) 17. State of Utah 2-4 It’s a much better team with Cooper Legas at QB. You saw it in the 38-26 loss to BYU, and you really saw it in this week’s 34-27 win over the Air Force. I now predict that the Aggies won’t be around much longer. (8) 16. Central Michigan 1-5 The Chips are only 1-5, but they played a tough schedule. They lost to Oklahoma State and Penn State — which are combined 10-0 — and a Toledo team that could win the MAC. They held on in a 17-16 loss to Ball State and could break through with their first MAC win over No. 1.5 Akron this week. (20) 15. Microlight 2-4 The Warhawks have played quite a tough schedule themselves and they looked terrific in their 28-21 loss to Coastal Carolina. They will have another tough test this week against a 4-1 South Alabama team currently sitting atop Sun Belt West. (17) 14. Northwest 1-5 I haven’t been asked about a team more in the past few weeks than Northwestern. “How isn’t it rated Northwestern?” Well, in short, they played too well against Nebraska to open the year and followed it up with a bunch of tight losses. Wisconsin finally gave them a beating this week, and the ground fell under the Cats. (NR) 13. Bowling green 2-4 The one thing you need to know about Bowling Green’s 38-7 loss to Buffalo you can learn by watching this video. (21) 12. West Michigan 2-4 The Broncos lost the battle with their directional counterparts in Michigan, losing to Eastern 45-23. The Broncos are only winning at this point against Ball State and New Hampshire. None of their losses have been less than 22 points. They will try to hang around this week against Ohio. (19) 11. Northern Illinois 1-5 We may have lost some MAC teams this week, but the remaining ones are still hanging around in packs. The Huskies were outscored by Toledo, losing 52-32. That’s five straight losses since the season-opening victory over Eastern Illinois. They get the Eastern Michigan team that beat Western Michigan this week. (14) 10. Army 1-4 You know how Jeff Monken popped his name in a few openings over the past two years, and you felt like he was pushing for the chance to get backstage? Well, watching Army this year might give you an idea why. The good news is that there are plenty of winnable games left on the schedule, but this looks like the worst army team we’ve seen in a while. (22) 9. South Florida 1-5 Want an idea of ​​how the voter mentality works? Look no further than South Florida’s 28-24 loss to Cincinnati. The Bulls — The last 10 Bulls — led Cincinnati 24-21 in the fourth quarter before the Bearcats scored with 9:24 remaining to take the lead for good. And then Cincinnati moved up three spots in the AP Top 25 for narrowly beating a really bad South Florida team. (9) 8. FRC 2-3 The Panthers lost our last 25 of the century game last week to UConn 33-12, but the color impressed me. It’s not easy to lose to UConn by three points. You rarely see it. (ten) 7.Charlotte 1-5 The 49ers were away last week but will be back at UAB on Saturday. (seven) 6. State of New Mexico 1-5 The Aggies were out last week but returned to action on Saturday against No. 19 New Mexico in The Last 25 Century Games of the Week Featured by Tom’s Breaking Bad Rewatch! Jesse! We’re going to cook in The Bottom 25! (5) 5. Akron 1-5 Akron had done a much better job of hanging out and staying in games after blowout losses to Michigan State and Tennessee, but came back into shape against Ohio. A Bobcats team that didn’t look so impressive this season beat the Zips 55-34. Maybe Akron can find some rhythm against No. 16 Center Michigan. (6) 4. State of Colorado 1-4 And then there was one. With Colorado State’s 17-14 victory over Nevada, there is only one team without a win in the nation. Also, in a crazy twist of fate, the Rams go from No. 1 in The Bottom 25 to second place in their division because they are 1-0 in conference (Boise State is 3-0). Greatness is cast in the fires of The Bottom 25. The Rams can prove it against No. 17 Utah State this weekend. (1) 3.UMass 1-5 The Minutemen were competitive against Eastern Michigan two weeks ago and hung on Liberty for the first half of that game. Unfortunately, Liberty scored with 42 seconds left in the first half to make it 21-10 and took off in the second half, taking a 35-10 lead late in the third. The Minutemen added a few more touchdowns to make it closer than it was. Let’s see how they fare against Buffalo this week. (4) 2. Hawaii 1-5 A sportsbook gave me a $10 free bet this week, so I took that baby and put it on Hawaii (+1400) to beat San Diego State. They almost did! In their most encouraging performance of the season, the Warriors held on in a 16-14 loss to the Aztecs. Let’s see if they can continue against No. 20 Nevada on Saturday. (3) 1. Colorado 0-5 Colorado had a bye week and had to sit at home and watch Colorado State win a game, pushing the Buffaloes to No. 1. 1 in the standings. If that doesn’t sum up the Buffs season so far, I don’t know what will. The only thing we can do is encourage them to get their first win of the season as well. The next chance is this week at home against Cal. (2)
