During last week’s breakdown of the UFR Sports College Football Fantasy Eight Playoff Bracket, Herc and myself both agreed University of Alabama stood as the best team in college football.
Last week, Oklahoma came in as the number one seed in our college football playoff bracket. This week the Sooners find themselves out of the tournament.
Cam Newton and his Auburn Tigers, joined the Oregon Ducks on the list of teams who legitimately posses a chance to finish the season undefeated.
The fact that Auburn holds the top spot, demonstrates the importance of complicated math formulas to the BCS rankings. The AP, Harris and USA Today polls all left the Tigers out of the top two.
I asked last week, why a one point loss by Oregon State— would keep Boise State out of the top two of the BCS rankings.
This week I’m left to wonder how LSU’s loss to the number one Auburn team— seems worse than Alabama’s one loss to South Carolina.
Alabama ended up at number seven in the BCS Rankings, and LSU found itself all the way down at number twelve?
The computer formulas and the humans all agreed TCU is fourth best and Michigan State is fifth best in college football.
All four polls— that includes AP, USA Today, Harris and BCS, rank both teams at four and five respectively.
Outside of the BCS Rankings, plenty of interesting questions remain to be answered.
Seven undefeated teams remain in the FBS division of NCAA football.
Auburn made a case for being the best team in college football. Cam Newton seems to be relishing his role as potentially the best player in the nation.
As far as this weeks Fantasy Eight College Football Playoff, the shift in teams creates even better match-ups than last week.
Here are this week’s first-round match-ups in the UFR Sports Fantasy Eight college football playoff.
Auburn vs. Utah, Oregon vs. Alabama, Boise vs. Missouri and TCU vs. Michigan State.
All of these games leave reason to believe anybody could come out on top as the college football national champion.
Join us this Wednesday night at 9pm, for Upon Further Review, to discuss who would win in this weeks mythical Fantasy Eight college football national championship.
