Historic Saturday In College Football

Saturday, October 4th will go down as one of the greatest days in recent college football memory. Every weekend there is the threat that one or two of the top teams in the country is in a position to be beat, but rarely, if ever, do you see a Saturday like the one this past weekend. In fact, Saturday was truly a day of historic proportions in the sport of college football.

For the first time in history, five, yes, FIVE, of the top eight ranked teams in the country suffered a loss in the same week. The first of those losses came last Thursday when Oregon was defeated by then unranked Arizona. Then, mayhem ensued on Saturday afternoon.

Starting with a highly anticipated 12 o’clock game, Mississippi State handled Texas A&M rather easily in a dominant win on national television. Then, around 3 o’clock, Mississippi State’s in-state rival Ole Miss began a game with Alabama that went right down to the wire. In the end, Ole Miss managed to pull off a huge win over the gold standard college football program in the country. Around the same time, highly ranked Oklahoma was in the process of suffering a tough defeat at the hands of TCU. And then at night, UCLA suffered a heartbreaking loss to Utah. There you have it: five of the top teams in the country fell within 48 hours. History.

Now all of these losses weren’t necessarily upsets, as Alabama, Oklahoma and A&M all fell to teams that came into the week ranked in the top 25. But while most pundits picked a loss here or there for those teams this weekend, no one predicted that all five of those teams would lose, in the same weekend nonetheless.

In what might go down as one of the wildest weekends in college football history, nearly a dozen of the top 25 ranked teams lost this weekend. Due to the near-dozen losses, the top 25 polls have seen a massive shakeup to say the least, with the big story being that two of the top four teams in the country now belong to the state of Mississippi. If this last Saturday is any indication of what can still come in a very young college football season, then this season will continue to be nothing short of amazing.

In the midst of an unprecedented football season already, these teams aren’t going to make it easy for the members of the 13 person committee that will pick the four teams for the first college football playoff at the beginning of 2015. It seems only right that the first go round for selecting the four teams will be extremely difficult.
