Week Three College Football Top Ten

Pullin' tractors, I thought a fitting photo for the "Farmageddon" game between Iowa State and Kansas State

Here are my top ten after the second week of play. No one dropped out of the top ten because they all won with the exception of Boise State who had a bye this week.

1. Alabama
2. Ohio State
3. Florida
4. Texas
5. Oklahoma
6. Boise State
7. Texas Christian
8. Nebraska
9. Iowa
10. Oregon

As the photo says, this week is the "Farmageddon" game between Iowa State and Kansas State, both very good agricultural universities. The game is being played at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, and should be a pretty good game overall. My personal opinion is that if Iowa State plays like it did against Northern Illinois, then the Cyclones should win by a touchdown but if they play like they did last week against Iowa, then the tables are reversed and Kansas State wins by a touchdown.

The Iowa Hawkeyes handily beat the Iowa State Cyclones last week. As unhappy as it made me, I still recognize that Iowa has a tremendous football team. This week they travel to Arizona to take on the Arizona Wildcats. I think that Arizona may pull off an upset just because they are on their home turf. Either way it will be a good game to watch.

The Western Kentucky Hilltoppers lost again last week and remain at the bottom of my rankings. This week they are taking on the Indiana Hoosiers at home. This will be a real tough game for them, a struggling Sun Belt school taking on a team from the Big Ten. I think they will play valiantly but still lose by three or four touchdowns.

Good luck to all the teams, except the Kansas State Wildcats! Go Cyclones!
