Oklahoma rolled over the Volunteers Saturday night with an overwhelming defensive performance. Tennessee was never able to generate any momentum as the Sooner defense thwarted almost everything in the Vols playbook. Oklahoma moved to #2 in the Billingsley report behind #1 Oregon.
Remember what I said last week about the Big 10 not being dead? Well, they may not be dead, but they’ve been put on life support after an 0-3 showing against the Big 12 Saturday. TCU dismantled Minnesota 30-7, West Virginia managed to squeak by Maryland 40-37 and Iowa State upset arch rival Iowa (as a 15 point underdog) 20-17.
Is the Selection Committee watching? – Head to head results are reported to be a top priority for the upcoming playoff. I hope they pay closer attention than the sportswriters and coaches do. Both the AP and Coaches polls still have Georgia ranked ahead of South Carolina. Both teams have one loss but South Carolina has played a slightly stronger schedule and the Gamecocks loss was to #6 Texas A&M.
The Billingsley report was 42-9 over the weekend and the Billingsley+ 41-10, both ranked in the Top 10 nationally in computer predictions.
