College Football 2019-20

Recommended Posts

Among the 'highlights' from last night was BYU's 9th straight defeat to archrival Utah. Same old story: BYU can't hold on to the ball, can't avoid stupid penalties at inopportune times, can't score touchdowns in the red zone, and can't make adjustments in the second half. My daughter started fourth grade a couple of weeks ago; BYU has never beaten Utah in her lifetime.

 

Of personal interest, Colorado and Colorado state play at Mile High tonight. I fully expect CU to obliterate CSU, as they usually do. Pity.

Feeling pretty good about the OU-UCLA game after the mighty Bearcats beat the Bruins. I am going to go this year with my father in law, the first OU game I've attended in person since 2005.

 

We will see how I feel after OU plays Houston on Sunday.

Wyoming goes up 10 on Mizzou in the fourth quarter. We'll see if they can hold on. It would be hilarious to see the Mountain West pull off upsets against the ACC and the SEC on the same day.

Give me three weeks, and I can tell you if BYU would be competitive. After a road trip to Tennessee next week, the Cougars' next two games are against USC and Washington.

 

(Based on their performance against Utah the other day, however, my initial answer is probably not.)

 

Boise State, however, has demonstrated that they can play with pretty much anyone.

It won't happen but if by some miracles my school goes undefeated or finishes with 1 loss, I have great confidence we'll make the playoff.

But that would mean beating Bama, Georgia, Clemson, LSU and Auburn.

 

Next stop: Clemson.

I'm still not convinced, perhaps if you throw some Texas hate in there.  :)

I apologize, clearly I'm not at mid season form having missed an opportunity to express my disdain for the whorns. 

 

... better? ;)

Going to call my score on this first game. OU wins but does not cover, takes a couple games for the offense to find it's stride, defense better than last year but not good yet. 

 

42-28 OU

What the [REDACTED] just happened with Auburn & Oregon?!

Is it too soon for the annual despair for the Ducks?

 

Though I shouldn't complain, since my niece is admitted to Oregon State.

Probably too soon, Oregon lost on a last second play against a P5 nonconference team in their season opener. There are some early warning signs, but hard to say how the season will play out in the Pac 12. Wouldn't say they are the front runners but nothing over yet. If you lose, lose early in a close game.

They're in the same division as Washington, and Stanford is almost as big a rival as the Beavers after what they've done to Duck seasons in recent years. Actually, the only obvious pushovers in the division are OSU and Colorado. It'll be a dogfight (quite literally) unless one team pulls decisively ahead in early October.

 

Yes, I included Washington State in the non-pushover category. Difficult as it likely is to convince top-level recruits to the cold prairie of Pullman, they seem to have been been punching above their weight for years.

After trailing (and frankly looking pretty inept) for most of the game, BYU hit a 64-yard pass with under a minute left to set up the tying field goal. Then they scored a touchdown in the second overtime to beat Tennessee in Knoxville.

 

I watched it happen, and I still can't believe it.

That sounds fantastic. 

 

Oklahoma beat South Dakota State University at Owen Field in Norman 70-14, proving absolutely nothing. 

 

UCLA, the Sooners next opponent, lost to San Diego State University (after losing to Cincinnati last week). 

 

I'm planning to go to the OU-UCLA game next week. Crossing my fingers.
