A new season is upon us, and with it comes plenty of intriguing storylines. From massive traves and superstar uncertainty in the East to a West perhaps the deepest it has ever been, here is an early season NBA Power ranking.
2018 Ric Flair College Football Rankings Week 8
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.
We gave you three upsets last week and we nailed two of them. The big one was our pick of the (3-3) Purdue Boilermakers over undefeated Ohio State. Not only did Purdue upset the AP number two team in the country, they did so in a 29-point blowout extending their win streak to four games. Purdue and Ohio State swap places in our power rankings with Purdue now our fifth best team in the country. Temple also upset Cincinnati as we predicted but Mississippi State fell just short in a loss to LSU.
For week 9, Northwestern over Wisconsin. Going away in the BIG 10 is a daunting task and with Northwestern just breaking the .500 mark, they go into the matchup with plenty of confidence against the visiting Badgers. Syracuse over North Carolina State. NC State received a beat down from Clemson last weekend and going away to Syracuse will only make things worse, Syracuse almost pulled off an upset over Clemson and have yet to lose a game by more than a touchdown. Still not very big on Texas and after narrowly escaping two matchups in a row, they fall to Oklahoma State in Stillwater, Ok.
Keep an eye on our upset picks and tune in next week to see the week's top 25.
