College football rankings: Colorado sinks in The Bottom 25 after blowout loss to Air Force

25. Miami (OH) 1-1 The RedHawks rebounded from a season-opening loss to Kentucky with a 31-14 win over Robert Morris. This week’s recreation in opposition to Cincinnati can be much more troublesome. (Last Week: 22) 24. ULM 1-1 The Warhawks have not had many causes to have a good time in current seasons, so a 35-7 win over Nicholls must be cherished. Also, in the event that they keep inside some extent of Alabama this week, we all know they will find yourself in the AP Top 25 Poll. (7) 23. Boston College 0-2 The Eagles are averaging 233.5 yards per recreation by way of two video games. That’s not solely the worst in the ACC; it is 56.6 fewer yards per recreation than the next-worst staff, Georgia Tech. (Not Ranked) 22. Middle Tennessee 1-1 A slightly wild begin to the season for the Blue Raiders, no? They opened with a 44-7 highway loss to James Madison after which went on the highway once more however beat Colorado State 34-19. Who is aware of what to anticipate in the house opener in opposition to Tennessee State? (8) 21. Central Michigan 0-2 The loss to Oklahoma State to begin the 12 months was anticipated. The 38-24 dwelling loss to South Alabama wasn’t. The Chips ought to rebound in opposition to Bucknell this week, however they’ve nonetheless acquired Penn State looming earlier than convention play begins. (NR) 20. Akron 1-1 It’s all the time one thing of a self-own if you name your self the Zips and get shutout. Akron fell to Michigan State 52-0, and if the Spartans are placing up 52 on Akron, what may Tennessee do that week? (NR) 19. Eastern Michigan 1-1 It wasn’t exhausting to see the 49-21 loss at Louisiana coming after the Eagles struggled to get previous Eastern Kentucky. Who is it exhausting to see one other loss coming this week at Arizona State. (NR) 18. Rice 1-1 Playing McNeese State was a lot simpler than enjoying USC. The Owls cruised to a 52-10 win, with TJ McMahon accounting for 5 touchdowns. Next, the Owls face a troublesome dwelling check in opposition to Louisiana. (4) 17. UConn 1-2 I do not suppose the Huskies will win many extra video games than they’ve not too long ago, however they’ve regarded much more aggressive up to now. Will that also be the case after highway video games in opposition to Michigan and NC State? We’ll see. (17) 16. Army 0-2 Army is right here as a result of it is but to win a recreation, however I do not anticipate it sticking round. It misplaced by 10 to a great Coastal Carolina staff and took one other good staff in UTSA to time beyond regulation earlier than succumbing. It’s higher than the file says it’s. (NR) 15. Kent State 0-2 Like Army, Kent State is a sufferer of its schedule. The Golden Flashes are masochists, and after shedding to Washington 45-20 to begin the season, they misplaced to Oklahoma 33-3 on Saturday. I anticipate them to decide up a win in opposition to Long Island, however they get Georgia after that, in order that they’ll be right here just a few extra weeks. (21) 14. FIU 1-1 The Panthers are off this week following a 41-12 loss at Texas State and can return to motion in two weeks at Western Kentucky. But I do not care about any of that. I’m looking at that recreation in opposition to New Mexico State on the primary day of October and salivating. (NR) 13. UTEP 1-2 The Miners acquired off the snide with a 20-13 win over New Mexico State in The Bottom 25 Game of the Century of Last Week. They’ll look to make it full the Land of Enchantment sweep this week once they host New Mexico. (6) 12. Georgia State 0-2 Don’t fear concerning the Panthers. They’ve regarded feisty in losses to South Carolina and North Carolina, and I believe they’ve a defensive entrance that can give loads of Sun Belt groups bother. It’ll give No. 4 Charlotte issues this week too. (NR) 11. Buffalo 0-2 I can not assist however discover that Kansas is off to a 2-0 begin with a highway win over West Virginia below Lance Leipold, whereas Leipold’s outdated program is off to an 0-2 begin and misplaced at dwelling to Holy Cross. I would not anticipate issues to enhance a lot at Coastal Carolina this Saturday. (NR) 10. Utah State 1-2 Utah State received the Mountain West final season, however that already looks like a very long time in the past. The Aggies adopted their 55-0 loss to Alabama with a 35-7 loss to Weber State. Yes, the Aggies turned the ball over 4 occasions, which did not assist, however Weber State had three turnovers! And it nonetheless beat Utah State by 28! That’s not nice! (13) 9. UMass 0-2 This week is big for the Minutemen as a result of they’re internet hosting Stony Brook. Not solely is it their first dwelling recreation of the season, nevertheless it’s their final dwelling recreation till Oct. 8. Also, it is in opposition to an FCS opponent, which implies it is likely to be probably the most practical shot at a win this 12 months. (11) 8. Bowling Green 0-2 OK, so possibly Eastern Kentucky is nice? Every week after giving Eastern Michigan hell, the Colonels pulled off their FBS upset by beating Bowling Green 59-57 in a seven-OT thriller. Now, I’m undecided anyone in their proper thoughts would request seven overtimes between Bowling Green and Eastern Kentucky, however like these socks you bought out of your aunt on your birthday, simply since you did not want them doesn’t suggest you received I do not take pleasure in them. (15) 7. Ball State 0-2 At this level, I would really like to name to your consideration that the MAC has 12 groups, and Ball State is the eighth of these 12 to be ranked in The Bottom 25 this week. That’s two-thirds of the league. That’s why the MAC is The Bottom 25’s Official Conference of September. (9) 6. New Mexico State 0-3 The Aggies are 0-3, however they’ve had probabilities to win in two of these three losses, together with Saturday’s 20-13 loss to UTEP. Will they give you the option to cling with Wisconsin? Probably not, nevertheless it’s not just like the Badgers have performed like superstars this season. (5) 5. Colorado 0-2 I made the error of betting Colorado to cowl the unfold in opposition to the Air Force. The fundamental premise was that the Buffs have been a Power Five staff and three-score canines to a service academy. Well, a 41-10 loss later, and I’m not betting the Buffs once more in 2022. I’m positive an terrible run protection will not have bother stopping Minnesota this week! (25) 4. Charlotte 0-3 The 49ers aren’t good. They misplaced to Maryland 56-21, however the remaining rating is somewhat beneficiant. The Terrapins have been up 21-7 after the primary quarter and 35-14 at halftime. Maryland referred to as off the turtles in the second half. Will no. 12 Georgia State does the identical when Charlotte travels to Atlanta for The Bottom 25 Game of the Century of the Week!? (3) 3. Navy 0-2 It can be one other lengthy season for Navy. Delaware was most likely probably the most winnable recreation of the season, and it misplaced 14-7 in its opener. Memphis dominated it 37-13 this week. The choice all the time poses a risk in opposition to anyone, however the remainder of the schedule, there do not appear to be many apparent candidates for a win exterior of Temple on Oct. 29. (2) 2. Colorado State 0-2 Jay Norvell is off to a tough begin at Colorado State. The 51-7 loss to Michigan wasn’t a shock to anybody. But the 34-19 dwelling loss to a Middle Tennessee staff that misplaced by 37 to James Madison the week earlier than? Yikes. Now the Rams should go on the highway and face the Washington State staff that beat Wisconsin final week. (10) 1. Hawaii 0-3 The subsequent couple of weeks can be essential for Hawaii. With Duquesne this week and New Mexico State the week after, these might show to be the perfect probabilities at profitable this 12 months. If they lose each video games, it is a close to certainty that this staff can be a contender for the Bottom 25 title this 12 months. Hell, it most likely can be, regardless. (1)
