Clemson went up to #3 in the AP poll, which.. They're right around where they should be.. My problem with Ohio State being #1.. Yeah, I get the "Well, they haven't lost", but, they haven't played a ranked team, either. Nor has Baylor.

I'd have LSU as the #1 right now, with Clemson as #2. Ohio State, Michigan State, TCU and Baylor could climb, as they have games against highly ranked teams upcoming.

Al Golden has been fired.

Golden Relieved of his Duties Effective Immediately - University of Miami Hurricanes Official Athletic Site

Hopefully Miami football will eventually be back to what it once was soon.

As for Golden getting fired, I have no sympathy.

Ohio State remains No. 1 because it is undefeated AND the defending national champion. Too many folks worried about rankings, though. Fans of Power 5 teams need to worry about winning their conference and getting in the playoff.

This season is one Golden's team should have trended upward. It did not.

As for the Hurricanes, I think they play in a more competitive conference in the Atlantic Coast Conference than they did in the Big East.

Baylor by 17.

EDIT:

In fact, I'll take it a step further and say TCU will already have taken a loss on their record when they play @ Oklahoma. Which will make this game not quite as big.

I think they'll both lose to OK State too....speaking of OK State I think they win the Big 12 this year. They get OK, TCU and Baylor all in Stillwater in November.

Gameday next week: Notre Dame @ Temple, Stanford @ Washington State?? This is probably the biggest game Temple has ever played, and the biggest game Wazzu has played in probably 15 to 20 years.

With Utah getting hammered and FSU blowing their game I will move ND and OK State into the top 10.

Oklahoma St. isn't really in the same class as the other three IMO.
Their best opponents so far are Kansas St. and West Virginia.

Kansas State was a pretty solid team who seems to have had the wheels come off after losing that game to TCU when they were up so big in the 1st half.

Perhaps you are correct. We shall see.

I can't remember a time when Gameday hasn't announced their location on Sunday. Washington has launched a HUGE social media campaign and last night Gameday tweeted no decision until today.

I'm thinking they're having logistics problems with wherever they want to go? The whole thing is very interesting.

Also, I just don't agree with a Gameday location between 2 teams with a loss when there's a game with not only 2 ranked teams, but one is undefeated.
