Week Three is in the books, and it was an exciting one featuring a slugfest between two top five teams, the end of the nation’s longest winning streak and a bunch of outstanding individual performances. Here is this week’s wrap-up from the top 25.
#1 Oklahoma 23, #5 Florida State 13
Oklahoma’s defense dominated the game, holding the Seminoles to just 27 yards rushing, forcing three turnovers and getting six sacks. Oklahoma sophomore receiver Kenny Stills had seven catches for 125 yards, including the eventual game-winner, a 37-yard jump ball reception for a touchdown with 7:00 to go in the fourth quarter.
This week, things start getting interesting in college football with a handful of conference games, a couple of contests between ranked teams and, arguably, the non-conference game of the year under the lights in Tallahassee. Here are the highlights for the Top 25:
The Boise State football program has been placed on three years’ probation and stripped of nine scholarships (three each for the next three years) after being hit with NCAA sanctions for repeated rules violations regarding extra benefits for recruits and players.
The Sooners were ranked #1 for the first time in 1954, the second year of Oklahoma’s NCAA-record 47-game winning streak, which lasted from 1953-1957. They have spent at least one week in the top spot in 19 different seasons.
As you might expect this time of year, there are not a lot of marquee games and only one matchup between top 25 teams (#3 Alabama vs. #23 Penn State). But there are still a lot of intriguing matchups that will start to tell us who are contenders and who are pretenders. H
