Ready For Bedlam

Best week 10 college football games

You can tell the college football season is rumbling toward a big finish because every week has huge, consequential games. That’s true every year. But the 2017 season has taken some really unexpected turns.

This past Saturday, expectations were defied again, and thoroughly. The most consequential outcome was Penn State’s defeat at the hands of the Ohio State Buckeyes. It’s not like no one saw this coming. It’s just that momentum was on Penn State’s side, and the College Football Playoff picture would have been much clearer if Penn State handed Ohio State its second loss and remained undefeated. Now, we see how the rest of the season unfolds in the Big Ten and let the selection committee figure it out. Good luck with that!

In other upsets, TCU got knocked from #4 as they reckoned with the force that is the Iowa State Cyclones. Iowa State had been #24, but after upsetting Oklahoma and now TCU, they’re #14. And they’re second in the Big 12. Iowa State! Who could have guessed?

Other things stay the same. Alabama remains undefeated, as do #2 Georgia, #4 Wisconsin, and #9 Miami. Everyone else in the top ten has a loss.

This Saturday, tune in as the races for the BIG 10, the ACC, and the Big 12 take some big, final twists—including in the storied Bedlam rivalry between Oklahoma and Oklahoma State. Here are your can’t-miss games.
