Goz’s Top 25 College Football Poll (Week 7)
For the second consecutive season I’ll be providing my own personal Top 25 poll each week during the college football season. My poll philosophy all season long has been ranking the teams I believe are the best twenty five best in the country following that given week’s games. Below are my rankings and comments about each week’ biggest shake up and changes. Do you agree or disagree? Let me know below or on Twitter @TomGozz
4) Penn State
6) Washington State
7) Ohio State
13) Virginia Tech
15) Oklahoma State
17) Central Florida
18) South Florida
19) NC State
20) Notre Dame
21) Georgia Tech
22) San Diego State
Washington State jumped Washington? – The better question is: What has Washington done to be above Washington State? Because they were better last season? Because they have a better recent history? Washington’s non conference schedule was filled with cup cakes. Washington State has beaten USC and Oregon on the road. Give me the Cougars over the Huskies right now.
Why in the world did UCF jump so high after beating?- I know the Golden Knights beat Cincinnati by four touchdowns. Yes they deserve some credit but some could argue not that much. I disagree. Watch this UCF team. The backfield, the offensive line, the secondary. It is a flat out better team than any in the non Power 5 conference. It’s possible I could be eating my words in two weeks when they play Navy. I know what I was watching on Saturday. Take the name “UCF” off their jersey and no one could deny they look like a Top 15 team.
Next likely to lose of Top 15 teams?– That’s a fun question. Is it a trap game somewhere for Alabama? Does weather effect a TCU game? Can Penn State hang on in a tough Big Ten. We have to wait and see. If you read this weekly poll enough you know my answer. Saturday October 21st: Miami loses to Syracuse!
