I know as the season progresses these will change, but as of today what are the most impressive wins so far this season?


Off the top of my head I am thinking (in no particular order):

Ohio State over Oklahoma by 21.
Clemson over L'Ville by 6.
Michigan over Wisc by 7.
A&M over Tenn by 14.
Houston over Oklahoma by 10.



What are some others deserving of consideration??

Oklahoma having two losses this early=over rated
Hard for Houston to brag about beating Oklahoma then lose to Navy.

Navy is no slouch and has given lots of teams trouble with that triple option over the last few seasons.

Last season they whooped a Memphis squad (that beat Ole Miss) by 25. Beat Pitt in the Bowl game by 16.

2013 they lost to a 9 win ND by only 4.

Oklahoma's two losses are to two very good teams with a combined record of 10-1.

Anyway, while I appreciate the feedback, you didn't offer your opinion on the actual question.

Wisconsin beating LSU was a surprise.

Stanford losing two straight.

Ohio State over Okie no surprise. OSU had some major talent last season that couldn't find the field too many folks were sleeping on them this preseason.

But I am not talking about "surprises".

I mean like "quality wins".

Who is the best team to have a loss?

I would agree with this when it happened, but Iowa has proven to be a very mediocre team. They beat Rutgers by only 7 points (who was shellacked last week by 78 points), was beaten by Northwestern, and last week barely beat a terrible Minnesota team. The rest of the season I'm afraid will not be kind to this Iowa team.


North Dakota State has made a habit of beating FCS teams so it really wasn't a huge upset.

Might want to re-think one of these scores.

A&M was only by 7, you are correct.

I had confused that with the SC/GA game.
