. 2-0. Previous: . Razorbacks . 19. team. 844

I’ll gladly accept that I was wrong about both the Razorbacks and the Longhorns. Arkansas absolutely destroyed Texas in a rekindling of the old rivalry between those two. After the game, Razorback Twitter was all over Texas with a savage tweet. Welcome to the league indeed.

18. team. 847. . 2-0. Previous: 22nd. Hokies

The Hokies took care of former top 10 North Carolina in week one. They followed it up with a solid win over Middle Tennessee State. It wasn’t the most dominant win, but they did what they were supposed to do. They have a big road game against West Virginia next week followed by a matchup with Richmond, before Notre Dame comes to town on 10/9. Early on they look like the team most likely to challenge Clemson for the ACC crown this year.

. 2-0. Previous: 19th. Wolverines . 17. team. 811

Another solid win for Michigan. Washington was clearly overrated after losing to Montana week one, and they looked overmatched against Michigan this week. Michigan will likely be 4-0 going into a big game with Wisconsin on 10/2.

. 2-0. Previous: 24th. Rebels . 16. team. 841

The Rebels have a much improved defense this season. Although, it is not very hard to improve on the dismal defense the Rebels had in 2020. A surprisingly difficult looking test looms next week with Tulane who has a very good offense this season. It could be a shootout in Oxford next week. Whatever the over/under is, take the over for that one.
