Week 1 of the college football season has come and gone, and we’re moving on to Week 2. While we don’t have a lot of high-profile games in Week 2, there are some games that could have an effect on the NCAAF rankings. We’re going to give you our Top 10 teams after Week 1 of the season so you can get all set to keep betting against the College Football Odds for Week 2.
This Week’s College Football Top 10 Breakdown | September 7th Edition
1. Alabama Crimson Tide
Nick Saban’s team steamrolled Utah State 55-0. Utah State won the Mountain West last season, and their head coach, Blake Anderson, said that the Crimson Tide is the best college football team he has ever seen. Alabama will have a tougher test this week as they head to Austin to take on former Saban assistant Steve Sarkisian and his Texas Longhorns.
2. Georgia Bulldogs
Speaking of steamrolling, that’s just what the Bulldogs did to the ranked Oregon Ducks this past weekend. They annihilated the 11th-ranked Ducks by a score of 49-3. Georgia looks like they’re destined for one, if not two, rematches with Alabama.
3. Ohio State Buckeyes
Although it was tough at times, the Ohio State Buckeyes pulled away from Notre Dame late. Jim Knowles’ defense played well, and if they give that kind of effort every week, it’s going to be hard to beat Ohio State.
4. Clemson Tigers
It wasn’t always pretty, but Clemson outlasted Georgia Tech. We’re still not sure if Clemson’s offensive line is championship caliber, but a win is a win. They’ll have some tough matchups later on.
5. Michigan Wolverines
The Michigan Wolverines destroyed Colorado State. Their offense looked really good, as the line manhandled the Rams defenders. We’ll see if they can do this to Big 10 competition, though.
6. Notre Dame Fighting Irish
Yes, we know they’re 0-1, but they only lost by 11 points to Ohio State. Marcus Freeman’s defense is going to give teams trouble, and once they get their offense figured out, the Notre Dame Fighting Irish will be tough to stop.
7. Texas A&M Aggies
Although they got off to a slow start, they were able to pull away from Sam Houston State. The Texas A&M Aggies only scored once in their first seven possessions. If they play like this against stiffer competition, they could be in trouble.
8. USC Trojans
Lincoln Riley’s offense came to play against Rice. They put up video game numbers, and the defense did a good job. Caleb Williams should be one of the nation’s top players.
9. Oklahoma Sooners
Brent Venables won big in his head coaching debut. Dillon Gabriel did a great job of leading the offense, and the defense looked good as well.
10. Baylor Bears
They beat Albany on Saturday. It’s hard to tell how good a NCAAF team truly is when they beat an FCS school. We’ll see how good they are this coming Saturday, as they’ll make a trip to Provo to take on BYU.
Top 10 Betting Game of the Week
Baylor goes into Provo as an underdog, as the Cougars are 3.5-point favorites in this one. Playing a night game at BYU has been a nightmare for many ranked teams in the past. BYU beat South Florida last week and looked good in doing it.
We think Baylor will go to Provo and will beat BYU. It will be a close NCAAF game, but we think Baylor is just too talented for the Cougars.
