Week 10 proved to everyone one thing: rankings mean nothing. The frauds that are the college football playoff committee put a 1 loss SEC team in front of an undefeated Pac-12 team and what happened? The 1 loss Texas A&M got embarrassed on the road at Mississippi State while the undefeated Washington rolled to a 66-27 victory also on the road at Cal. None of these rankings matter until the last one to determine who actually gets to play in the final 4.
Best Game of the Week:
Oklahoma State-Kansas State
This was a back an forth game throughout the whole game. OK State had a 21-16 lead at halftime and Mason Rudolph looked like he was going to roll to another huge day. He ended with a huge day but it was not as easy as OK State fans would have liked. Down 37-28 OK State and Rudolph had to score twice in the last 8 minutes; once on a 82 yard TD strike to James Washington and after a 3 and out the would score again on a 17 yard TD run from Chris Carson. K-State would have one last attempt from the OK State 18 yard line but K-State QB Jessie Ertz would be picked off in the end zone as time expired.
Biggest Let Down of the Week:
I could write a college research paper on my thoughts on this Texas A&M team and how they were undeservedly put in a number 4 spot over a team I have been hyping for a year and a half now but I wont bore you readers with that. I will say that on a football side of things, this loss to Miss State was a huge letdown because not only did it cost them at least a shot at the final 4 but cost them any shot they had to play in the SEC title game, however slim it was. Adding insult to injury, literally, starting QB Trevor Knight was hurt in this game and his outlook for the next few weeks are unclear and in his place QB Jake Hubenak did not look impressive at all even with throwing for 2 TDs.
Biggest Winner of the Week:
A 62-3 win does not usually call for a biggest winner award however the way this Ohio State team has looked the past few weeks this performance does indeed deserve some award. JT Barrett looked like the QB we thought he would look like all season, throwing for 4 TDs and 290 yards. The defense look fast and loose once again, as they started the scoring off with a pick six interception off of Nebraska QB Tommy Armstrong, who was hurt in the game and was taking to the local hospital for precautionary reasons but returned to the field hours later and looked OK thankfully. Ohio State still controls their own destiny with games against Michigan State and Michigan left to determine not only the big ten title game but a spot in the final 4 and possibly 2 spots for the big ten if Michigan would lose close to Ohio State and teams lose above them.
