2011 College Football Rankings For Week 2
September 6, 2011 by staff
2011 College Football Rankings For Week 2, The first week of the college football season is in the books and as always had plenty of story lines. Annoyed, nail-biting finishes, and some new names appeared this week and now its time to prepare for Week 2.
There are several key games this week and here is a closer look at some of the contests and what it might mean for the winner and loser of each game.
Friday night the Tigers of Missouri west to take in the Pac 12, Arizona State Sun Devils. Both teams won in the first week and the Sun Devils were on the radar of many experts for a breakout season. The Tigers struggled on offense, with only 291 yards against Miami in Ohio, but the defense stepped up and the team won 17-6. Arizona State ran into a 41-0 advantage at the University of California Davis after three quarters and ended up winning the game 48-14 in the offense gained over 500 yards. The winner of this game jump in the ranking, while the loser will have an uphill climb the rest of the season to return to the top 25.
In the SEC we will realize the good thing about Auburn Tigers are this week as the face of the State of Mississippi. Both teams were victorious last week and are ranked in the top 25, but Auburn needed two touchdowns in the last two minutes to withdraw a 42-38 victory over Utah State. The Bulldogs had a much easier time of it in week 1, as they defeated Memphis 59-14. This was a tight game last year as Auburn squeezed a 17-14 victory, but the Tigers will have some significant improvements in his defense if he wants to win this week. This game could be a make or break contest for both clubs trying to maintain the momentum of last week in the future in the 2011 season. The winner could enter the top 15, while the loser will more than likely, the drop in the polls.
There are a number of other interesting games this week, including travel to Alabama and Georgia taking Penn State in South Carolina. As with every week in college football, one loss could drop a team from the ballots and make the season an uphill climb.
