Top Ten Thursday; College Football

This week was not as wild as last week but we did get 1 new team in the Thursday Top Ten, . Who stayed? Who dropped out? And which two teams are making up our Marquee Game of the Week? All of this and more is answered below!

10. Notre Dame

Last Week: NR

Last Game: Won 49-14 over USC

Next Game: 10/28 versus North Carolina St.

Notre Dame finds the Top Ten for the first this season after an easy victory over USC, who has fallen far after another loss. Notre Dame is going to be on the outside looking in for the Playoffs right now, but anything can happen in the closing weeks of the season.

9. Oklahoma

Last Week: #8

Last Game: Won 42-35 over Kansas St.

Next Game: 10/28 versus Texas Tech

The Sooners have work to do, after another close game against an unranked team. They are looking more and more venerable, and beatable.

8. Miami

Last Week: #9

Last Game: Won 27-19 over Syracuse

Next Game: 11/4 versus Virginia Tech

The Hurricanes now look like they are the team to beat in the ACC with the fall of Louisville over the middle part of the season. If they can keep up, it might pay off with a trip to the Playoffs.

7. Ohio St.

Last Week: #7

Last Game: 10/21 Won 56-14 over Nebraska

Next Game: 10/28 versus Penn State

The Buckeyes are another team looking to overcome an early season loss and make their way back into Playoff contention. They now have a Top Ten showdown at home against Penn State.

6. Clemson

Last Week: #6

Last Game: 10/21 Lost 27-24 at Syracuse

Next Game: 10/28  versus Georgia Tech

There are probably still a few fresh wounds from the stunning upset at the hands of The Orange, but they have to get past those on focus on Georgia Tech. A win gets them right back on track.

5. Wisconsin

Last Week: #5

Last Game: Won 38-13 over Maryland

Next Game: 10/28 at Illinois

The Badgers have a simple game now, against Illinois and for the rest of the season. In the weaker BIG-10 West they just have to not get upset and they are in the Conference Title game and a shot at the Playoffs.

4. TCU

Last Week: #6

Last Game: Won 43-0

Next Game: 10/28 at Iowa St.

The Horned Frogs are on cruise control right now, but will have to not overlook an Iowa State team who stunned Oklahoma on the road. The Cyclones look to keep rising in the ranks while TCU wants to hold onto a shoot at the Playoffs.

3. Georgia

Last Week: #3

Last Game: 10/21 Won 53-28 over Missouri

Next Game: 10/28 versus Florida

Georgia is currently second best team in the SEC behind Alabama, and they want to prove they are the best. With five games left, if they win out they can get that chance in a Conference Title game.

2. Penn State

Last Week: #2

Last Game: Won 42-13 over Michigan

Next Game: 10/28 at Ohio St

They want Bama, a sign you always see at GameDay, and one you will probably see this weekend again from some brave Penn State fans in Columbus. The Marquee Game of Week hands Penn State their hardest game to date this season at Ohio State.

1. Alabama

Last Week: #1

Last Game: Won 45-7 over Tennessee

Next Game: 11/4 versus LSU

The Tide are a well oiled machine that keeps on rolling. They have an off week before they work towards finishing up Conference play. As if they needed a break from crushing opponents.

Dropping Out: #10 Oklahoma State

Marquee Game of the Week: 10/28 #2 Penn State at #7 Ohio State, 2:30 P.M. CT on FOX
