T-C-U BETTER BELIEVE IT

#3 TCU took on #5 LSU this weekend and let everyone know that the Horned Frogs are legit. It was a defensive struggle but TCU was able to come out on top 13-10.

THE BUC STOPS HERE

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers didn't give Christian Skaggs any break Sunday, sacking the QB 6 times. The offense did their part behind QB Taylor Heiden and rookie RB DeNorris Jackson and came away with a 28-21 win.

DREAM KILLERS?

A top 15 matchup between the #11 Toledo Rockets and #15 Florida Gators ended in heartbreak for the Rockets. Florida managed to pull out the 25-22 win on the road. Anyone doubting either team was put on notice.

CATCH ME IF YOU CAN

The Green Bay Packers have raced to a 5-0 start after beating the 2-2 Seattle Seahawks. This game was very banner worthy which is why it is on here. I wonder if anyone can "catch" the Green Bay Packers, or maybe "intercept" them? No no, definitely catch.

    Why is Pittsburgh ranked below Penn State?

    Pollsters aren't directly comparing just Pitt and Penn State, Penn State started a lot higher, and polls have Bayesian tendencies to adjust incrementally rather than entirely overwrite prior assumptions.

    Look at the poll. There aren't any 2 loss teams. There's no room for you

    Some pollsters value head-to-head results and rank accordingly.

    The University of Oregon has a season-opening loss to current #7 Vanderbilt, a 3pt loss to previously-undefeated Texas, and just knocked former #11 WSU down...the week after knocking Arizona OUT of the rankings. Just keep winning and the poll will take care of itself. That's the credo we're living by.
