Used to be Clemson, but Texas A&M is a good candidate here.

Butch Jones is like Rasputin.

Tennessee leads the world in winning games in spite of themselves

So we aren't getting rankings till tomorrow? I don't like how there's been a game every day. If that's gonna happen let there be 3-5 not 2 or 1

replacing 2 linebackers is substantially easier than replacing a starting qb when ur backup has all of 19 snaps to his name

Yeah if bama lost to fsu then they could be in trouble and fsu would be done anyway but it didn't happen

Bad choice, Tennessee couldn't stop them. Kick the point and then they get they get the back first in the 3rd OT. They would have scored a TD and put all the pressure on Tennessee.

I guess it's easy to say now, but I didn't like it when it happened live.

Alabama is now back to playing the way Saban wants except he now has a mobile QB. I do think they will struggle to move the ball and produce big plays in the passing game but defense, special teams and controlling the clock. Saban tried to modernize with Lane Kiffin but he was clearly not comfortable the last few years with that style of offense.

To any haters out there: The Penn State Nittany Lions will be the #2 team in the country come next Monday.

Just unreal the progress Franklin has made... basically back already.

How so? Bama wins it's pretty impossible

Osu or Oklahoma will be 2

With the way their offense was dragging Tennessee up and down the field, I don't blame Johnson going for the win.

Penn State isn't going to #2 unless Ohio State loses to OU.

It's possible

My fault... OU beating OSU probably would make them leapfrog PSU, didn't consider. I don't think obliterating a mediocre Pitt team would help prevent that.

Also would need Auburn to beat Clemson which I could see happening.

Yeah, and that's an easy leapfrog for PSU over Clemson. So that'd #3 at least.

Also to the above: you mad we're back to being a national power with literally zero involvement from a Paterno? It feels great.

Auburn is weak. Still have Clemson winning that game even without Watson, even though the score is obviously closer
