Week 8 games will go out sometime tomorrow (Monday). Since we're about halfway through the regular season, anyone want to start speculating on who makes the playoff field?
agentcom wrote:After a disappointing start, Clemson has fired its former coach and brought on agentcom, for his first stint with an FBS team. The move seems to have been the right one. In consecutive weeks, the Tigers have dismantled the teams atop the Atlantic Division of the ACC while on the road.
Week 6 saw Clemson jump out to an early 10-0 on Boston College. Boston College chipped away during the defensive struggle of the second and third quarters before Clemson iced a 17-9 victory with a touchdown in the fourth quarter.
Traveling to Maryland for Week 7, Clemson didn't look back from a 17-9 lead at the half, scoring 13 unanswered points after the break. Following the game, Terps coach Farinelli said the Tigers "were the better players tonight."
The newly inspired Tigers will face a true test this week as they return home for a game in their new stadium Waterloo Field against #14 North Carolina. At a press conference before the game, Coach Agentcom stated that while he's happy to be in a new stadium and in front of a home crowd, he does not expect it to make a difference in the game. "At the end of the day, the better team will walk away victorious. I think our players have shown, and will continue to show, that we can play with these teams in the ACC."
Rodent's pick: Iowa State
#2 Iowa State (6-0) and #7 Texas A&M (5-0) play each other this week, and it looks like Iowa State has a slight lead. The winner of this game will have the inside track, with Kansas State (5-1) also in position to challenge at 3-0 in league play. #21 Missouri (4-2) looked like an early contender but already has two league losses.
