The top ranked teams had a good week 7 with the top 5 ranked teams LSU, Alabama, Oklahoma, Wisconsin & Boisie racking up 259 points between them, admittedly not against the strongest of opposition.
The games of the day for the neutral anyway were No. 8 ranked Clemson’s 56 – 45 win over Maryland, Kansas State’s big 41- 34 win over Texas Tech. Clemson were given a bit of a fright by the Terrapins, who let with just over 7 minutes left, however 2 lTDs secured the Tigers win and their top 10 spot – at least for another week. Texas Tech lost their second conference game in a row to slump to 4-2 despite leading at the half. Kansa Stade are now 6-0 joint leaders of the big 12 with Oklahoma & Oklahoma State. Kansas State are strating to get noticed with yet another slightly surprising win. They are not racking up the stats but they are now set for a showdown with Oklahoma in two weeks which will tell us if they are for real.
SMU had a nice win over UCF which has sent them to 6-0 and they are knocking on the top 25s door now while Ohio State got back on track with a win over Illinois. The Buckeyes who are 4-3 are a much better team than their stats show and they won this one despite only having 17 yards passing! It snot too late for them to rally and figure in one of the better Bowls we think.
Wake Forests recent good run came to a shuddering halt against and despite racing into a 10- first quarter lead the game was practically over by the half as the Hokies rallied.
