Week 7 of the college footballseason is in the books. The weekend slate provided plenty of highlights, big plays, standout performances and surprises. Saturday’s outstanding slate of games started with Baylor’s 62-38 win over West Virginia, Memphis’ upset over Ole Miss and continued into the afternoon with huge showdowns between Alabama-Texas A&M and Michigan-Michigan State.
Numbers and statistics are a huge part of college football. Every Sunday, reading updated box scores and stats is like Christmas for fans and media members. Some stats like total offense and total defense are overrated, but each help paint a picture for a team or particular game.
Week 7 of the college football season is officially in the books. And as usual, the weekend slate of games didn’t disappoint. Saturday’s action started with Memphis knocking off Ole Miss 37-24 and continued into the afternoon with Michigan State’s crazy last-second victory over Michigan and Alabama’s 41-23 win over Texas A&M.
It was inevitable. A regression to the mean. Aka, a losing weekend.
I did get two of my three Letdown Alert picks correct but that struggling Florida State offense ruined me for the weekend.
I'm not shying away from the big games this weekend (except one) and am feeling like going big or going home. We’ve also now entered the “win one for the Gipper... because the other guy got fired (or suspended)” portion of the season as well.
