GOOD START IN STARKVILLE

The Mississippi State Bulldogs pulled off a close 27-23 win over the Iowa Hawkeyes behind a gutsy performance from QB Ryder Shipman who stayed in the game and threw for 323 yards and 3 TDs despite having fractured his thumb late in the third quarter.

PERFECT FIT

The Philadelphia Eagles topped the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday Night Football 31-28. The three headed monster in Philly's backfield: Allan Taylor, Troy White, and rookie Marshawn Miller put the whole league on notice with their performance.

EL CHACKO LOCO

The hype around North Dakota State QB Will Chacko continues to grow following a 389 yard 3 td performance which nearly resulted in an upset win for the Bison over the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets

GROUND CONTROL

The Kansas City Chiefs beat the New York Football Giants 27-0 despite only throwing the ball 6 times largely because of the legs of Terrence Rodgers and Justin Buchanan.

BACK IN BLACK

Hockey is back! And the Chicago Blackhawk's rookie sensation Anatoli Kolchenyuk picked up right where he left off notching yet another goal early in his rookie campaign.

    [2020] PAC-12 Power Rankings, post-week 3.25*

    Recommended Posts

    Sorry these are one day late: the asterisk means I know that Week 4 TNF games have already been posted. I'll note further with other *...

     

    It's only been 3 weeks of games and we are already seeing the strengths and weaknesses of teams as exposed by Out-Of-Conference opponents good, bad, and ugly. For now, Wazzu hangs onto the top spot...where will YOUR team fall?

     

    If you don't like where you are in these rankings...play (and recruit) better!!

     

    1. Washington State Cougars (2-0) :wsu:

           Uff-da! The Cougs had week 3 off after barely breaking a sweat against NC State. Oakes & Co. look good, real good. Ape has a good one brewin'...   

         

    2. Arizona Wildcats (3-0)* :zona:

          The Wildcats absolutely ran riot over the Buffaloes in week 3. Their defense is stellar, the offensive line looks good, and the backfield is getting it done. Can they keep it up against the big boys down south?

     

    3. Stanford Cardinal (3-0) :stanford:

          Why am I dropping Stanford behind Arizona despite two fantastic wins, including a beatdown of ASU? No idea. Maybe I just don't like Nicholas Garland as much as Notorious does...

     

    4. Cal Bears (2-0) :cal:

           Two games, two giant wins for the Bears. This reporter thinks Cal, not Wazzu or Stanford, will be the winner of the North in the end. But for now, gotta knock off the King.

     

    5. USC Trojans (2-1) :usc:

           Holy cats did the Trojans take out some frustrations on hapless SJSU after the surprise loss to Notre Dame in week 2. 66 points on the board is not a game, it's toying with someone. Unfair. Here's guessing the Men of Troy go on quite a run to the South title.

     

    6. UCLA Bruins (2-1) :ucla: *

           A week 4 TNF smackdwon of MTSU allowed Steven Gore and his cluster to flex some muscles after notching a PAC-12 win over U-Dub. Almost makes up for the near-loss in OT to the Baylor Bears, but not quite.   

     

    7. Arizona State Sun Devils (1-1) :asu:

           Maybe should be higher after putting a hurting on Ohio State (that's TWO losses to Copper State schools for the LOLhio State Buckeyes), but the stinker versus Cal really stings. This team can make some noise, if they and their coach are operating at full speed. 

     

    8. Colorado Buffaloes (1-2)* :colorado:

            Truthfully, only ahead of the next two because of the 1 in the W column, albeit against NDSU. Buffaloes have been whooped by SC and 'Zona. 

     

    9. Oregon State Beavers (1-2) :orst:

             Truthfully, the Beavs should be lower, but hey, they have a win--the next teams don't! It's a thing. Beavers remain the only school in Oregon with a W, but that won't last long...

     

    10. Oregon Ducks (0-2) :oregon:

              Stupid kickers. A 3 pt OT loss to the Azul Longhorns leaves the Ducks as one of the top winless programs in the country. Is that too bold a statement? Maybe, but you'll see a much better effort from the Webfoots in week 4.

     

    11. Utah Utes (0-2) :utah:

            Donald Culver deserves better than this. Illinois just curb stomped the Utes in Salt Lake City in week 3. Question is: will the Utes find a win this year? Likely, but not exactly sure where that will come...

     

    12. Washington Huskies (0-3) :uw:

            Jake Davis doesn't exactly know what he got himself into. There is talent on this team, but the system doesn't seem to match the talent. I'm guessing the Dawgs figure it out a bit into the season for a couple wins. That's about it.
