Well, it had to happen sometime, but Kentucky beat Florida for the first time since 1986, and they deserved it. The Cats pushed the Gators around with stunning ease to win 27-16. Florida does not possess talent in either line plus Felipe Franks, although better, is an average SEC QB at best. I would be happy with a 6-6 record this season. Dan Mullen has more work to do than he anticipated (maybe he knows). A couple of other high profile hires had tough games, Chip Kelly losing to OU 49-21 (the Sooners look like a playoff team) and Scott Frost losing to Colorado.
Game of the day was in raucous Kyle Field as Texas A&M gave Clemson everything they wanted before losing 28-26. The Aggies moved the ball easily against Clemson's vaunted DL as their receivers bailed out QB Kellen Mond many times. Clemson QB Kelly Bryant, maybe not the most talented on the roster, showed his cool experience and is a gamer. Jimbo Fisher may be able to win in College Station, and Clemson should breeze into the ACC final against Va Tech.
The Georgia Bulldogs rolled into hot Williams-Brice Stadium (for those of you who have never been to Columbia in the summer it is the most miserable place there is) to face a confident SC squad. The Gamecocks thought they had a shot here, but Georgia is just too good. The Dawgs have athletes (just like Bama), they are physical (just like Bama), they run the ball with multiple backs (just like Bama) and can beat you any way you want (just like Bama). You get the picture as Georgia destroyed the Cocks 41-17.
Stanford used a stingy defense and Bryce Love to beat USC 17-3. The Cardinal could be a serious contender if their defense continues to play well. The rest of the power teams were not challenged.
Two games in it is real simple, I like the four playoff teams from last year, Bama and Georgia as 1 and 1A along with Clemson and Oklahoma. Teams that could spoil this party are Auburn, Stanford, and the Big 10 champ. Washington and LSU maybe.
