We had a wild day of college football yesterday, and it was one for the books.
Here are my four biggest takeaways from the weekend.
1) Wisconsin passed their first major test with flying colors.
The Badgers rocked and rolled Iowa Saturday afternoon. Quarterback Alex Hornibrook threw three interceptions, and it still made no difference in the long run. Blowing out ranked Iowa should shut up Wisconsin’s critics.
Can’t wait to see how little respect they get come Tuesday night when the new rankings are revealed.
2) Notre Dame got exposed.
I’ve been saying all year that Notre Dame wasn’t as good as the hype, and Miami proved me right Saturday night. Now all the delusion of ND fans should officially be over. No chance a two loss Notre Dame team is even going to come close to smelling the playoff.
3) The SEC’s hope of two playoff teams is officially dead.
Georgia got embarrassed by Auburn. It was borderline cruel as I watched Auburn slice and dice the Dawgs’ defense. The SEC’s only getting one team in at this point, and an Alabama loss to Auburn could end that hope too.
4) Ohio State won’t make the playoff, but still looks incredible.
Has a team ever bounced back in a better way than Ohio State did against Michigan State? They lost to Iowa last week, and turned around and just blew out the Spartans. It’s a shame they won’t make the playoff because I’m not sure anybody played better yesterday than OSU.
