BSS College Football Rankings - Week 2


The second week of the College Football season has wrapped up and most squads have had safe matchups up to this point.  Other than a few marquee matchups, schools have predominately participated in tune-up games as they gain steam towards conference games.   Here are my Week 2 CFB rankings.

1.     1. Clemson
The defending National Champs have done nothing to lose the top spot so far this season.  Led by sophomore superstar quarterback Trevor Lawrence, the Tigers have barreled through the competition.  Unlike some of the other teams in the Top 5, Clemson has actually played decent competition.  To kick things off Dabo and the Boys crushed conference foe Georgia Tech 52-14.  This past weekend the Clemson Tigers faced off against the 12th ranked Texas A&M Aggies and were able to leave with a victory.  No two ways about it, Clemson is extremely good and could be in the championship again in 2020.

2     2. Alabama
Nick Saban has another juggernaut on his hands.  The Crimson Tide look every bit as dangerous as they have over the past years.  Just like Clemson, they are led by a future NFL quarterback Tua Tagovailoa.  No two ways about it, Alabama has destroyed both opponents so far in 2019.  The closest game with decided by a razor thin 39 points.  With their usual dominant defense and an elite QB, don’t be surprised if Bama squares off against Clemson again this year.  But maybe some of the upcoming teams will have something to say about that.

3.       3. LSU
Louisiana State had the most impressive victory over the weekend.  With a national rank of 6, the other Tigers took on the 9th ranked Texas Longhorns.  LSU came out victorious in a battle that took place on Texas’ home turf.  The Bayou Tigers have their usual strong defense, but unlike years in the past they may have a really good quarterback on campus.  Joe Burrow had 471 passing yards and four touchdowns on Saturday.  The teams coming up next didn’t do anything to fall in the rankings, but LSU just took care of business this past weekend and deserve a Top 3 mark.

4.       4. Georgia
The Bulldogs are just another SEC powerhouse that is built to compete for a national championship.  I am a big believer in their QB, Jake Fromm.  He hasn’t lit the field on fire stat wise so far in 2019, but to be quite frank he hasn’t needed to.  Georgia hasn’t played anyone of note yet, but when their schedule heats up I fully expect Fromm and the rest of the Georgia Bulldogs to step their game up and continue to be ranked at the top of the standings.

5.       5. Oklahoma
Lincoln Riley is becoming one of the best coaches in college football.  He is unequivocally the nation’s best QB whisperer.  Baker Mayfield, Kyler Murray and now Jalen Hurts.  The former Crimson Tide signal caller has been a stat monster ever since he transferred to Oklahoma.  The Sooners will have to continue to take care of business if they want to make the playoffs but they are certainly talented enough to make the final four.

Teams to Watch

Are the Trojans back?  Man I sure hope so, but I can’t say they are officially back just yet.  After losing JT Daniels to a knee injury, USC turned to a freshman by the name of Kedon Slovis.  Slovis played great this past weekend, but he and the entire squad will have to up their game over the next month if the Trojans are going to get back onto the national landscape.  USC will take on BYU next week, fresh off of their victory against Tennessee.  Then they will face off against Utah, Washington, and Notre Dame.  If they get through that gauntlet smoothly enough they will absolutely be considered back.  

Led by Virginia Tech transfer Josh Jackson, the Terps are off to a very impressive 2-0 start.  Early on in the 2019 season Maryland already has an upset victory.  They defeated the 21st ranked Syracuse Orange on Saturday, and if they can get some quality wins in the Big Ten you could see Maryland continue to climb the national rankings.

Ohio State
Everyone already knows about Ohio State, but they made the teams to watch list because they are the next team up in my Top 5.  The first year after Urban Meyer retired, the Buckeyes still look like the dominant force that they have been over the last decade.  Their quarterback, Justin Fields, is a wildly talented transfer from Georgia.  The sophomore will contend for a Heisman over the next two years before he is a high draft pick.  If Fields and the rest of their high powered offense keep things rolling the sky's the limit for the perennial contender.
