    Taking a look around the nation, in the Top 25, #1 Ohio State just barely squeaked past Iowa 30-28, running their winning streak to an absurd 61 wins in a row. At this point, will Ohio State ever lose again? And how many goats will have to be sacrificed by the opposing team to do it?

    #2 Miami (FL) juiced Syracuse 38-10. In the upset of the week, Tulane stunned #3 and previously 5-0 Ole Miss with a 44-38 overtime victory. #4 Michigan escaped Nebraska 42-37. #9 Georgia Tech neutered #5 Clemson 45-28. #6 Oklahoma shellacked previously unbeaten Hawaii 48-10. In runner up for upset of the week, TCU knocked off #7 Baylor 28-14. In third place for upset of the week, Florida International plastered #8 Auburn 49-30.

    #10 UCLA got past UAB 45-31. Kentucky defeathered #11 South Carolina 49-33. Kansas shocked #14 West Virginia 39-37. #15 Oregon fought off Colorado 43-40. #17 just edged by Tennessee 31-30. #18 Fresno State survived Army 21-18. #19 Washington upset #12 Kansas State 23-19. #20 Boise State handled Nevada 35-13. Virginia knocked off #22 Louisville 35-28. Previously winless Georgia State shocked #23 Notre Dame, ruining their 5-0 record. #24 Washington State held off Stanford 35-28. #25 USC scalped Utah 45-34.

    It was a rough week for top 25 teams, as the #3, #5, #7, #8, #11, #12, #14, #22 and #23 teams all lost.

    For our readers, JeffHCross, #1 Ohio State improves to 5-0 (2-0 Big Ten) with a 30-28 win over Iowa, their 61st win in a row. Morsdraconis, #14 West Virginia drops to 4-2 (1-2 Big 12) with a 39-37 loss to undefeated Kansas. Souljahbill, Southern Miss improves to 2-3 (1-0 C-USA) with a 27-24 overtime win over winless Louisiana Tech. Jaymo, Arizona State drops to 2-3 (1-2 Pac-12) with a 23-21 loss to Oregon State. LeeSO, #8 Auburn falls to 3-2 (2-0 SEC) with a 49-30 loss to Florida International. SCClassof93, #11 South Carolina drops to 3-3 (1-3 SEC) with a 49-33 loss to Kentucky. Other teams of interest, Arkansas State remains 2-2 (0-0 Sun Belt) with a bye week. Florida International improves to 3-1 (0-0 C-USA) with a 49-30 upset of #8 Auburn. Navy improves to 2-1 (1-1 American) with a 34-23 win over Air Force. Tulsa falls to 2-3 (2-1 American) with a 46-28 loss to Connecticut.

    In Mountain West action, #6 Oklahoma slaughtered Hawaii 48-10, #18 Fresno State slipped past Army 21-18, #20 Boise State poached Nevada 35-13, San Diego State speared Utah State 28-14, New Mexico feasted on New Mexico State 41-10 in the Rio Grande Rivalry. San Jose State shocked Cal 44-41 in overtime, and Navy shot down Air Force 34-23.

    Taking a look at the new Top 25 Coaches Poll, in a shocking surprise, Miami (40 first place votes) jumps the Buckeyes and take over as the #1 team, Ohio State (21 votes), despite winning 61 games in a row, drops to #2, Michigan climbs one to #3, Georgia Tech jumps five spots to #4 and Oklahoma moves up one to #5. Oregon leaps nine ranks to #6, UCLA climbs three to #7, Clemson drops three spots to #8, Georgia jumps eight spots to #9 and Texas moves up three to #10. Fresno State jumps seven spots to #11, Arizona climbs four to #12, Washington leaps six spots to #13, Baylor falls seven to #14 and Boise State rises five to #15. Ole Miss plummets thirteen spots to #16, Kansas State drops five to #17, Michigan State climbs three to #18, TCU enters the poll at #19 and Auburn sinks twelve spots to #20. Washington State climbs three to #21, South Carolina drops eleven ranks to #22, USC jumps two to #23, West Virginia falls ten spots to #24 and Texas A&M (302 points) enters the poll at #25. Dropping out of the poll this week were Louisville (from #22) and Notre Dame (from #23). Both Louisville and Notre Dame were in the poll for just one week, entering the poll last week, only to immediately drop right back out this week. Looking at Others Receiving Votes, Florida State (135 points) is #26, followed by San Diego State (93), Nebraska (76), Florida (20) and Louisville (15) to round out the Top 30. Also getting points this week was Kansas (14), good enough for 31st.

    Taking a look at the new Top 25 Media Poll of the year, just like the coaches poll, 61 wins in a row don't get you any respect, as Miami (38 first place votes) jumps one to become the new #1 team, Ohio State (22 votes) drops one to #2, Michigan (1 vote) remains #3, Georgia Tech climbs five to #4 and Georgia (2 votes) leaps six to #5. Oklahoma climbs two to #6, UCLA moves up three to #7, Oregon (2 votes) vaults nine spots to #8, Clemson drops four to #9 and Texas moves up two to #10. Baylor falls seven to #11, Fresno State jumps seven spots to #12, Arizona climbs three to #13, Washington moves up four to #14 and Boise State climbs five to #15. Ole Miss drops ten spots to #16, TCU enters the poll at #17, Kansas State falls four to #18, Michigan State climbs two to #19 and Auburn plummets thirteen spots to #20. Washington State moves up three to #21, Texas A&M jumps three to #22, USC enters the poll at #23, South Carolina falls eleven spaces to #24 and West Virginia (297 points) falls ten spots to just barely hang on at #25. Dropping out of the poll this week were Louisville (from #22) and Notre Dame (from #23), who immediately leaves the poll the very next week after entering the poll. Looking at Others Receiving Votes, Florida State (179 points) is #26, followed by Nebraska (121), Florida (111), Louisville (55) and Kentucky (54) to round out the Top 30. Also getting points this week were Vanderbilt (34) and San Diego State (2).

    A look at the Heisman race, West Virginia QB Kevin Gates is #1 (LW: #1), Washington State QB Lee Foster is #2 (LW: #3), Georgia HB Chris Walters is #3 (LW: #5), Michigan State QB Jordan Norton is #4 (LW: #2) and UCLA QB Mitchell Slaughter is #5 (LW: NR). Dropping off the Heisman Watch list this week was Arizona QB Adam Parrish (LW: #4).

    Yeah, I've been itching to dive back into NCAA for nearly a week now. I wanted to play one or two games on the 4th, but my 360 was unplugged and didn't want to go through the hassle of trying to figure out which plug led to which electronic and what I could and couldn't unplug. I eventually had a chance to sort things out yesterday afternoon and was able to dive back in.

    Not sure if I'll get a game played tonight like I originally planned. Now that it's no longer hotter than Satan's asshole here, I gotta mow after work. Between that and cooking dinner, it might be 8pm or later before I'd have a chance to sit down and start a game.

    Good to see you back at it. If this game was backwards compatible I would play it all the time but sadly it's not. However getting it set up is just not worth the time hassle. I've accepted that College Football on consoles is dead. I still dream what could have been on our current gen consoles.

    Oh god, I would kill to have NCAA 14 be backwards compatible on either the Xbox One or PS4. It's a bit of a pain to play it, because I have to play it on my old ass 360, running it through the HDMI pass through on my One. I especially wish it would show up backwards compatible some day as I fear the day my 360 dies as it's closing in on 9-10 years old.

    But, as long as my 360 still runs, I'll still play NCAA. And now that my month of hell is over at work (3 weeks of 5:30am starts at work, pushing between 9-12 hours a day, 5 days a week), I hope to dive back in a couple evenings this week and keep working on this season.

    Yeah, my 360 is hooked up in one of the guest rooms and itís sole purpose is to be my NCAA 14 player. I even have a wired controller so that donít have to bother with batteries.

    I hooked up my PS3 after this discussion and found out all of the controllers are broke. I ordered two cheap knockoffs on Amazon so if the mood strikes me I may try and fire up a game this week.
