  • No. 10 Kentucky Wildcats (2-0)

The Eastern Kentucky (No. 167) win was a step back for the Cats. Kentucky had a solid win over a bad Ball State team in week one. Teams are supposed to get better in week two but the Cats went the other direction. At halftime against the Colonels, it was 7-7 in Lexington. The eventual 11-point win was not impressive. The Cats will move to 3-0 on Saturday, hosting Akron.

  • No. 9 Auburn Tigers (2-0)

The Aubies pulled one out late on the West Coast beating Cal. The Bears (No. 46) led for over 55 minutes in the game. Auburn QB Payton Thorne was nothing special but good defense and the Auburn rushing attack was enough. Auburn hosts Samford on Saturday.

  • No. 8 Mississippi State Bulldogs (2-0)

Beating Arizona (No. 63) was an important win for the Bulldogs. At best, this is a transition season in Starkville. Up next is a home date with LSU.

  • No. 7 Arkansas Razorbacks (2-0)

Being 2-0 does not mean much when the wins are over Western Carolina and Kent State (No. 148). Up next for the Hogs is BYU.

  • No. 6 Texas A&M Aggies (1-1)

The Aggies lost to Miami 48-33, with the Canes finishing with 17, 4th-quarter points. With all the talent on the A&M defensive roster, the Aggies should be better. The problem could again be coaching.  Next up for the Aggies will be an easy win over ULM.
