Newsweek College Football Rankings, Heisman And Cfp-week Predictions 15

Published

on

One of the best games of last weekend was put together at the last minute with BYU traveling to face the Coastal Carolina Chanticleers. Both teams entered the contest at 9-0, and ‘College GameDay’ was there. The game lived up to the short-notice, high-profile billing, and the Chanticleers won, 22-17.

Coastal Carolina moved up to No. 12 in this week’s Newsweek Top 20, and BYU slipped to No. 15. Coastal Carolina trails only Cincinnati for the best-ranked team in the Group of Five conferences. The top team from the Group of Five gets an invitation to play in one of the New Year’s Six bowl games. Cincinnati travels to play a tough Tulsa squad this weekend.

The top six teams won again on Saturday, all of them looked very impressive and all of them did it on the road except Notre Dame. Alabama crushed LSU, 55-17, and Notre Dame manhandled Syracuse, 45-21. Clemson stomped Virginia Tech (45-10), Ohio State beat Michigan State (52-12), Texas A&M beat Auburn (31-20) and Florida beat Tennessee (31-19).

Four teams lost and fell out of the top 20, and four new teams entered. The Louisiana Ragin’ Cajuns enter the rankings at No. 17, followed by No. 18 Tulsa, No. 19 Texas and No. 20 North Carolina.
