The College Football Report Top Ten: From Army To Amway

1. Yale.

Yale and Army played for the 46th time in a series that dates to 1893 and the Bulldogs pulled a 49-43 upset in overtime to beat the Black Knights for the first time since 1955.

First, if you beat the United States Army shouldn't you be ranked No. 1 in the country?

Second, the United States Army's team name is the Black Knights. We thought it was the Army.

2. Ohio State strength coach Anthony Schlegel.


3. Georgia RB Todd Gurley.


4. North Carolina State.

The Wolfpack nearly upset #1 Florida State thanks to great plays like these by QB Jacoby Brissett.



5. LSU.

The Tigers covered a 43-point line - by 13 points - in a 63-7 win over New Mexico State.

(Then again, NMSU owns the nation's longest active streak of losing seasons (11), the worst record in the FBS since 2004 (28-94), and have had only four winning seasons since 1968.)

6. UMass QB Blake Frohnapfel.

Frohnapfel racked up 589 yards passing and five touchdowns for UMass. Those are some serious numbers for a Frohnapfel.

7. Tennessee Tech head coach Watson Brown.

Brown earned the inglorious record of being the first coach in NCAA history to lose 200 games following a 50-7 loss to Northern Iowa. He must be one helluva engineering professor to keep his job.

8. Texas Longhorns coach Charlie Strong.

Strong dismissed junior offensive lineman Kennedy Estelle last Tuesday for unspecified violations of team rules, becoming the third starter and ninth player overall Strong has booted this season. Apparently, Strong takes discipline and drug testing, very, very seriously. As the Austin American-Statesman reports, an average of 104 tests were given annually to football players from 2010 to 2013, but Strong has administered 188 tests in his first eight months on the job.

9. Ole Miss kicker Gary Wunderlich.

The only player ejected after a fracas with Memphis.

10. The Amway Top 25 Coaches Poll.

A) In the shape of a pyramid.

B) Votes are collected door-to-door.

C) The top of the poll makes out like bandits; the bottom not so much.
