2018 Ric Flair College Football Rankings Week 7

10/18/2018

Your favorite college football ranking system is back for the 2018-19 college football season. Our format remains the same, to be the man you gotta beat the man. Teams are ranked based on the previous week's record, nothing else.

Last week gave us 8 new teams into the top 25 and we follow that up with 5 new teams this week. The most shocking inclusion comes courtesy of our upset pick with the LSU tigers upsetting previously undefeated Georgia. That shook up both our top 25 and the AP top 25. Texas Tech shoot up 6 spots following in the footsteps of Oregon who moved up an amazing 20 spots after defeating Washington.

Last week we went one for three on upset picks and this week we did you one better and went 2 for 3. Would have been three for three but Texas was able to barely pull away from Baylor in a 6-point victory that came down to the last throw of the game. LSU defeated AP #2 Georgia as we said they would and USC followed suit and ended Colorado's undefeated season with an impressive performance in southern California.

For week 8, take Temple over undefeated Cincinnati. Temple is undefeated in the American conference so far while Cincinnati is yet to play a decent opponent. Expect Temple to jump out to an early lead at home and do just enough late on. College football isn't fair and for that exact reason expect Mississippi State to match into AP #5 LSU and walk out with a victory. This is a trap game for LSU coming off the emotional high of defeating Georgia the previous weekend, LSU starts slow and Mississippi State capitalizes. We save our biggest prediction for last, Purdue over Ohio State. Purdue is riding a 3 game win streak and have plenty of confidence with Ohio State coming into town.

Keep an eye on our upset picks and tune in next week to see the week's top 25.

Here at the ICT Zone, our power rankings are based on a very simple philosophy. "To be the man you gotta beat the man", if a lower ranked team beats a higher ranked team, then the two teams automatically swap spots regardless of results from prior weeks.
