College Football Recap: Week 11
There are four weeks left in the college football season, and this season has had many surprises, mainly in the SEC and some sleeper teams in the Big 12, Atlantic Coast Conference and Big Ten.
With the college football playoffs right around the corner, let’s take a look at our top teams and how they did this week. There are four undefeated teams left as we approach week 12 of college football.
It’s no surprise that one of the undefeated teams sitting at 10-0 is the defending national champions, the Georgia Bulldogs from the SEC. Georgia is currently ranked No. 1 in the AP Poll, averaging 40.6 points per game.
The Bulldogs, after defeating Mississippi State 45-19, travel to Lexington, Kentucky to take on the unranked Wildcats this week.
Ohio State and Michigan have been one of three teams to dominate the Big Ten with the third being Penn State. Both Ohio State and Michigan are currently ranked No. 2 and No. 3 in the College Football Playoffs. The Buckeyes and The Wolverines are set to play Saturday, November 26, and is going to be one of the most anticipated in the Big Ten.
Ohio State is coming off a 56-14 victory versus unranked Indiana, while Michigan is coming off a 34-3 win against Nebraska.
Three of these undefeated teams come at no surprise as they have always dominated college football in one way or another, but one most people weren’t expecting is the Texas Christian University Horned Frogs.
The Horned Frogs represent the Big 12 conference and are coming off a 17-10 win against No. 18 Texas, and might have a perfect season alongside Georgia.
It may not be a shock to some that Alabama Crimson Tide aren’t undefeated this season, however are currently ranked No. 8 in the College Football Playoffs.
The Crimson Tide have two losses this season - one to Tennesse by a field goal and the other to LSU by one point in overtime. Alabama, if it's not in the College Football Playoffs, might have a different look for the first time in a few years.
There are only a few weeks left in this year’s college football season with many teams dreaming of bowl games in any form, and also conference championships. There’s still much in store he store for the remainder of the season to see which teams remain undefeated, what teams will fall, and if Alabama has a chance for redemption.
