College Football – AP’s Top 25 Welcomes North Carolina, Michigan State, Pittsburgh and Ball State

College Football’s 6th week saw the AP pollsters kick Wisconsin, Fresno State, Oregon and Connecticut out of its Top 25 list and welcome in North Carolina (4-1) at 22, Michigan State (5-1-) at 23, Pittsburgh (4-1) at 24 and unbeaten Ball State (6-0) at 25.

No. 18 Wisconsin, which had risen to No. 8 in the 3rd week, fell the hardest, losing at home to No. 14 Ohio State 20-17. The Buckeyes true freshman quarterback Terrelle Pryor scored on an 11-yard run with 68 seconds left to snap Wisconsin’s 16-game home winning streak. When it counted, the Badgers could not stop Pryor to preserve their lead and also could not contain Chris “Beanie” Wells’ 168 rushing yards.

No. 22 Fresno State got bushwhacked at home by unranked Hawaii in overtime 32-29. Hawaii capitalized on the Bulldogs’ 6 turnovers and 3 missed field goals. The pineapple brigade of Hawaiian Warriors had lost 3 of their first 4 games and apparently were not willing to stop their winning tradition despite being on the road.

No. 23 Oregon had to travel to No. 9 Southern California, fresh off its 27-21 upset loss to the Oregon State Beavers in Corvallis. The Trojans were in no mood to entertain another loss to an Oregon team and took it out on the Ducks 44-10.

No. 24 Connecticut was unbeaten at 5-0 before heading to unbeaten and UFABET สูตรเล่นสล็อต unranked North Carolina. The Tar Heels saw opportunity coming and dispatched the Huskies by taking a 17-3 halftime lead before polishing them off 38-12.

Michigan State led Iowa 16-6 after three quarters and hung on with some great defensive stops in the 4th quarter to outlast the Hawkeyes, 16-13. After losing its opener on the road to California by a touchdown, the Spartans have now reeled off 5 consecutive victories.

Visiting Pittsburgh put some heartache on No. 10 South Florida on its home turf, leading 17-10 at the half and winning 26-21. Dave Wannstedt’s Panthers were every bit the match for the South Florida Bulls, which suffered their first loss of the season.

Ball State picked up its 6th straight victory by shutting out Toledo 31-0 in a road game. Toledo’s Rockets hung tough in the first half, trailing 3-0, but the Cardinals stopped messing around and scored 4 touchdowns in the second half to put an exclamation point on their win.
