College Football Week 8 Recap

As another #1 is defeated as well as a couple of other top teams, this weeks games and rankings were really exiting

1. Oklahoma vs 11. Missouri
19. Texas vs Iowa State
14. Oklahoma State vs 16. Nebraska
20 West Virginia vs Syracuse
23. Kansas State vs Baylor

Other Loses in top 25:
6. LSU vs 4. Auburn

Top Performances:
1. Nebraska QB Taylor Martinez: he rebounded nicely after a bad loss as he passed for 323 Yards and 5 Touchdowns  and added another 112 on the ground in a victory over undefeated Oklahoma State
2. Auburn QB Cam Newton: he passed for 86 yards but ran for 217 and 2 Touchdowns and Lead his now #1 Auburn Tigers to a victory over#6LSU
3. Oregon's Offense: Not a surpise here with the best offense in the country, but they did put up 60 again, this time against a somewhat good team in UCLA. Heisman Hopeful LaMichael James rushed for 123 Yards and 2 Touchdowns as Thomas passed for 308 and 4 Touchdowns

Top Disappointments
1. Oklahoma Sooners: If you are ranked the best team then you should not lose. No ands, buts or excuses. When you have a great defense and explosiveness from RB DeMarco Murray, the Sooners should be able to beat Missouri
2. Texas Longhorns: This team is obviously not good this year with already 3 losses and 2 back to back. The problem here starts with the quarterback as he can not replace or come close to the most efficient college quarterback ever, Colt McCoy
3. Michigan State: Yes altough they won, they got lucky in the 4th quarter and had to make a huge comeback against Northwester, Yes Northwestern who was known in the 1980's and 1990's for having one of the largets losing streaks in College Football Ever. Expect an upset against Iowa this week Spartans.

Game of the Week: Oklahoma vs Missouri: 36-27 Mizzou
Its not a surpise that the upset of the #1 team is the game of the week, but Mizzou did play great. Their quarterback Blaine Gabbert passed for a touchdown and over 300 yards while their running back ran for a touchdown and the defense stopped Landry and Murray.

Top Games for next week:
1. Oregon vs USC (upset alert)
2. Michigan State vs Iowa (upset alert)
3. Auburn vs Ole Miss
4. Mizzou vs Nebraska
5. Utah vs Air Force

Heisman Race
1. Auburn QB Cam Newton
2. Boise State QB Kellen Moore
3. Oregon RB LaMichael James
4. Stanford QB Andrew Luck
5. LSU CB/KR/PR Patrick Peterson
