After a night of surprises and humiliations in the case of Kansas State the results mean that only the following remain unbeaten after nine weeks – LSU, Alabama, Oklahoma State, Boise State, Stanford, and Houston.
Clemson who still had outside hopes of a championship place saw those evaporate at the hands of Georgia Tech who hit them with a second quarter blitz from which they never looked likely to recover. The final score was 31-14.
Kansas State who had quietly sneaked into the top 10 thanks to a run of good wins largely produced by key plays saw their luck finally run out as they were hammered 58-17 by Oklahoma. Things might have been different if Anthony Cantele hadn’t missed a 25yard field goal which would have tied the scores, however when that missed you could see the confidence draining out of the Wildcats and the Landry Jones led Sooners then ran up the score somewhat making up for last weeks shock defeat to Texas Tech. Whatever the season brings though the Wildcats can be proud of their achievements.
So next week The FBS will be down to 5 unbeaten teams at best as LSU take on Clemson in a bonfire night showdown with the winner in all probability on their way to the National Championship.
