NEW SEASON; NEW POLL week 6
NORTH CAROLINA ,(BASN)—1. Clemson
The Tigers are (6-0) for the first time since 2000. They are second in the ACC in total offense with 472.3 yards per game. But with quarterback Tahj Boyd injured hip, the Tiger high-potent offense could be slowing down.
The Bayou Tigers have only allowed two first-half touchdowns this season, which is the 2nd lowest in the FBS.
Camp Randall loves quarterback Russell Wilson. So far, he has thrown for 1,391 yards and 13 touchdowns.
6. Oklahoma State
Amazingly, the Cowboys are averaging 51.4 points per game this season. Last week, they scored 70 points against Kansas.
8. Boise State
9. Georgia Tech
The Wolverines are (6-0) for the first time since 2006. So far this season, they have defeated their opponents by a 25 point margin. This week, Big Blue takes on its biggest competition in the Spartans of Michigan State.
11. Kansas State
For the first time since 2000, the “purple people eaters” are 5-0. This week, their undefeated record gets tested against Texas Tech.
Illinois lead the Big Ten in sacks with 3.67 sacks per game.
14. South Carolina
The Gamecocks continue to play musical chairs at quarterback. Despite a poor passing game, the University of South Carolina is still averaging 212.5 yards per game, which is second in the SEC.
15. Virginia Tech
The Hokies have won four straight games against the Demon Deacons of Wake Forest.
The Ducks of Oregon are 4-0 since losing their season opener against LSU. Heisman hopeful LaMichael James has rushed for 737 yards in the last three games. Unfortunately for the Mighty Ducks, James will probably miss this week’s game against the Sun Devils of Arizona State due to arm injury. Oregon has won six straight games over Arizona State.
18. West Virginia
Notable mentions: Baylor (4-1), Arizona State (5-1), UNC (5-1), Michigan St. (4-1), Wake Forest (4-1)
