The Best D@mn Power Rankings: Week 2 (61-90)



61. Toledo (1-1)

Lost to Notre Dame 32-29

This is going to be one of those years in college football.  We actually saw the Rockets d@mn near knock off Notre Dame.  Hard to imagine that Toledo won’t dominate the MAC this year.

NEXT

62. Western Michigan (1-1)

Beat Illinois State 28-0

The Broncos just look like a middle of the pack MAC team.

NEXT

63. Cal (0-2)

Lost to TCU 34-32

If you would have told Cal fans the O would get it together this week they would have had to be optimistic against the Bears.  Unfortunately, they left the D back in Berkley.

NEXT

64. Fresno State (2-1)

Beat Cal Poly 63-10

Bulldogs cruise heading into what now looks like a surprisingly good match up against UCLA.

NEXT

65. Southern Miss (1-1)

How is Frank Gore’s kid in college? Good bounce back game for the Eagles.

66. Ball State (1-1)

Lost to Penn State 44-13

The Cardinals were no match for PSU, and will have their hands full with Wyoming next week.

Beat Easten Kentucky 30-3

Nice breather for the Cardinals before UCF comes to town and unloads on them.

NEXT

70. Tennessee (1-1)

Lost to Pitt 41-34

Losing Milton hurt, but it wasn’t Hooker that lost this game.  There were enough Vols miscues and missed opportunities for all to share.

NEXT



71. South Carolina (2-0)

Beat ECU 20-17

Until the Pick 6 before the half, the Gamecocks were terrible. The did a few good things on D, but for the most part they just looked bad. But in the second half, they looked like a halfway decent football team… one question though. How is Juju McDowell only getting 11 carries?

NEXT

72. Kansas State (2-0)

Beat Southern Illinois 31-23

Losing Skylar Thompson is devastating.  How bad?  They d@mn near lost to SIU.  If he’s gone for the year it’ll be a long 2021 in Manhattan.

NEXT

73. Maryland (2-0)

Beat Howard 62-0

It’s a good thing we all learned to say Tua’s name… his little brother is about to make us all use it a lot more.

NEXT

74. Wyoming (2-0)

Beat Northern Illinois 50-43

The Cowboys found their offensive mojo again.  They’ll need it with Ball State coming to town.

NEXT

75. Western Kentucky (1-1)

Lost to Army 38-35

The Hilltoppers had more success against that Army D than expected.

NEXT

76. Washington State (1-1)

Beat Portland State 44-24

The Cougars weren’t all that impressive against the Vikings, but that’s not really a surprise after last week.

NEXT

77. Air Force (2-0)

Beat Navy 23-3

This was supposed to be a down year for Air Force, but they just keep doing what they do.

NEXT

78. Illinois (1-2)

Lost to Virginia 42-14

Illinois played a fundamentally bad game; after two weeks of near respectability, the Illini come crashing back to earth. They were ineffective in pretty much every facet of the game.

NEXT

79. Nebraska (2-1)

Beat Buffalo 28-3

The ‘Huskers get to feel like a decent football team… at least until the Sooners hang 60 on them next week.

NEXT

80. Rutgers (2-0)

Beat Syracuse 17-7

Last week Rutgers surprised us all with offense.  Now they have a D?  If Schiano isn’t good at anything else, the guy can d@mn sure resurrect some Rutgers.

NEXT



81. Marshall (2-0)

Beat NC A&T 44-10

The Herd continue to feed on lesser teams,  Good chance they continue that trend against ECU…. the real test comes in a couple of weeks with App State coming to town.

NEXT

82. Buffalo (1-1)

Lost to Nebraska 28-3

No in between for the Bulls.  They’re either destroying inferior teams of getting destroyed by superior ones.

NEXT

Beat Kennesaw State 45-17

Tech bounces back (sort of) after tough loss to Northern Illinois.

NEXT

84. Kent State (1-1)

Beat VMI 60-10

These MAC teams really do like putting up video game scores against FCS teams.

NEXT

85. Hawaii (1-2)

Lost to Oregon State 45-27

Wasn’t this supposed to be a good D?

NEXT

86. Arkansas State (1-1)

Lost to Memphis 55-50

Only 2 numbers matter… 115 and 1,360.  Points and yards in this game.  It was like watching ping pong.  The Red Wolves just didn’t have enough firepower in the end.

NEXT

87. Georgia Southern (1-1)

Lost to FAU 38-6

This game wasn’t even as competitive as the score looked.

NEXT

88. Ohio (0-2)

Lost to Duquesne 28-26

Well this was nice.  We had the chance last week to learn how ‘Duquesne’ is said.  So now I know it’s “Did you guys seriously lose to (Doo’ Kane)?

NEXT

89. San Diego State (2-0)

Beat Arizona 38-14

If the Aztecs can knock off Utah next week… and they might… they might have something going heading into conference play.

NEXT

90. Purdue (2-0)

Beat UConn 49-0

Am I the only one who thinks Purdue might actually go into South Bend and beat the Irish?
