Poll Watch: The AP Top 25 and Coaches Poll after Week 13 of College Football

Photo by Steven King/Icon Sportswire via With Michigan pulling off the biggest win of the season, the polls were really shaken up in week 13. Week 13 gave us one of the best rivalry weekends in recent years. We can also debate if it was the most exciting weekend of college football in 2021. It was a beautiful all-day marathon of College Football Playoff drama and poll destruction. As I said weeks ago, in the first seven years of the College Football Playoff, 4 teams took up 17 of the 28 potential slots— Alabama, Clemson, Oklahoma, and Ohio State. After the last 48...

Miami Vs Duke: Three Stars of the Game

Jim Dedmon-USA TODAY Sports In a day full of records set, the offense takes the cake. Miami secured a blowout 47-10 win in the regular season finale against the Duke Blue Devils.

In a season plagued by season ending injuries to key contributors on all sides of the ball, an AD firing, and looming speculation over potential coaching changes this season couldn't end fast enough for many. In spite of the overall record, the team...

Never mind the fact the Homestead air force base was being notified for rocketed projectiles in the area, the ability to refrain from turnovers during a torrential downpour was impressive.

Poll Watch: The AP Top 25 and Coaches Poll after Week 12 of College Football

Photo by Gregory Shamus/ Even though only four ranked teams lost in Week 12, and only one of those was to an unranked team, the polls still had some major movement this week.

In week 12, things didn’t get much clearer for the 62 AP voters, who haven’t separated the two squads by much in votes. Yesterday, Alabama and Cincinnati both won, but by way different margins. The debate among these two...
