Winners, Losers, Analysis & Scores to Each Top 25 Game in Week 7
Week seven of the college football season has arrived and it will take a lot to live up to what we witnessed last week. Last week was the first time in the AP Poll era, dating back to 1936 that five of the top eight teams lost in the same week.
It was also only the second time in the AP Poll era that four of the top six teams lost, the previous time being in 1990. So, what will we have for an encore this week in college football?
We will go through the top 25 battles of week seven and give you our winners, losers and final scores.
Last week was full of chaos, upsets and classics finishes all across the country. We can only hope for the same this weekend and with our slate of games we very well could get another classic week.
Here is the top 25 schedule for week seven and how we see each game playing out.
#1 Florida State @ Syracuse- Florida State wins 38-17 behind a strong performance from Jameis Winston.
#2 Auburn @ #3 Mississippi State- Auburn wins 38-34 displaying their improved passing game from quarterback Nick Marshall.
#3 Ole Miss @ #14 Texas A&M- The Aggies shock the Rebels in College Station with their explosive offense. Texas A&M wins 44-34.
#9 TCU @ #5 Baylor- The Baylor Bears win 37-30 in a classic Big 12 battle.
North Carolina @ #6 Notre Dame- The Irish avoid this trap game and defeat UNC 31-20 before facing number one Florida State in week eight.
#7 Alabama @ Arkansas- The Crimson Tide get back on track with a huge road victory, but just barely. Alabama wins 28-24.
#8 Michigan State @ Purdue- Michigan State show why they are the best in the Big Ten in this one. Michigan State wins 41-21.
USC Trojans @ #10 Arizona- The Trojans go in and upset number ten Arizona. USC wins 44-38.
Texas vs. #11 Oklahoma- The Sooners rebound from last week’s loss to TCU and beat Texas in the Red River Rivalry. Oklahoma wins 31-20.
#12 Oregon @ #18 UCLA- These two teams are in a must win situation, but I feel the Ducks’ offense will be the difference. Oregon wins 45-41.
#13 Georgia @ #23 Missouri- This is a game that is basically an elimination game in terms of winning the SEC East division. I believe the Bulldogs’ running game will be the difference on the road and Georgia wins 31-27.
#16 Oklahoma State @ Kansas- The Cowboys of Oklahoma State wins big 52-17.
#19 East Carolina @ South Florida- The Pirates of East Carolina take care of business in a tough battle against the Bulls of South Florida. East Carolina wins 38-31.
Duke @ #22 Georgia Tech- The Yellow Jackets are one of the surprise unbeaten teams this year. Georgia Tech wins in a close one 34-31.
Washington State @ #25 Stanford- The Cardinal of Stanford will be way too much for Washington State in this one. Stanford wins 38-20.
