The Vols instead are 1-4 and off to their worst start since 1988, when they dropped their first six games. According to Pro Football Focus analysis, Nix ranks 88th among FBS starting quarterbacks and has thrown the 10th-most "turnover worthy" passes (11) this season. The first standings for the playoff come out in November.
Here is our predictions as to how the game will play out and the final score.
The No. 3 spot is now shared by Ohio State and Georgia in the AP Top 25. Memphis is the same as Baylor, a good undefeated team that should get some recognition because of their undefeated record, even though their competition is abysmal.
Notre Dame is also not a surprise. LSU beat Texas, which could also finish with that lone blemish.
It's week seven and the Gators are preparing for another top ten matchup, this time against the LSU Tigers.
What unfolded in the first quarter, where Ohio State settled for a 3-0 lead despite forcing turnovers on the first two Spartan possessions, seemed inevitable. Of the teams in the top 10, Clemson - despite being the defending national champion - would face the most scrutiny considering the perceived weakness of its strength of schedule.
Michigan State (4-2, 2-1 Big Ten) goes back on the road next Saturday when it travels to Madison, Wisconsin to take on the eighth-ranked Badgers (3:30 p.m. ET, 2:30 p.m. CT, BTN). Then at that point in time, somebody else has to become the kicker.
With all due respect to No. 19 Wake Forest (5-0), No. 22 Baylor (5-0) and unranked Minnesota (5-0), that is the Playoff table unless No. 12 Auburn (5-1), No. 13 OR (4-1), No. 15 Utah (4-1) OR No. 16 MI (4-1) can cause chaos through championship weekend.
It wasn't a good week for both the Jaguars and Buccaneers, who both had momentum slowed following big wins the week prior. "We've got two big ones", Dantonio said.
Florida shook up the bottom half of the nation's top 10 ranked teams with its upset win over the Tigers on Saturday, setting off a month when the teams vying to crack into the top five get a chance with key conference opportunities. "It does cross your mind, but games like this are the kind we need to get to where we want to get to as a team".
J.K. Dobbins #2 of the Ohio State Buckeyes leaves the Cincinnati Bearcats defense behind as he runs for a 60-yard touchdown run in the second quarter at Ohio Stadium on September 7, 2019 in Columbus, Ohio. Joiner hasn't touched the football since going for 19 yards on four carries against Kent State Sept. 14.
I had the Gators (6-0) among my top 10 in earlier ballots this season but had them at No. 11 last week following a couple of shaky wins. The Tigers, Wolverines and Huskies lost the following week.
But this week it is a little hard to find the team that got robbed.
