14. TCU (3-0)
Defeated SMU 56-36
Kenny Hill has really found himself in Fort Worth. The Horned Frogs have taken full advantage of their closest rival falling completely apart, and have put together a pretty good team. Gary Patterson continues to work his magic, and the offense is catching up.
13. Miami (1-0)
Game against Florida State postponed
Miami has played only one game this year, but returns a lot. Even though both games were cancelled or postponed because of a hurricane, the football playing Hurricanes should be good this year. They will play their bitter rival Florida State on Oct. 7, and that will be an excellent barometer of the category of these Miami Hurricanes.
12. Virginia Tech (3-0)
Defeated East Carolina 64-17
It seems as if the Hokies have found a good coach in Justin Fuente. Taken from a successful program in Memphis, he has built on top of what he inherited from Frank Beamer. Letting defensive coordinator Bud Foster keep in charge of the defense is an excellent decision, and keeping him there may prove difficult.
11. Georgia (3-0)
Defeated Samford 42-14
After narrowly defeated Notre Dame, Georgia went back to Athens and Sanford Stadium, to play Samford. This game won’t tell us much about the Bulldogs, but they have taken care of business. The Georgia faithful hope that Saban disciple Kirby Smart will build up a similar powerhouse between the hedges.
10. Wisconsin (3-0)
Defeated BYU 40-6
Badgers spent plenty of time during the last game jumping around, with an easy victory over BYU. Wisconsin always seems to have a quality running back, and freshman Jonathan Taylor is looking to be the next in an impressive line of Badger runners. Him and sophomore quarterback Alex Hornibrook could be mainstays for the Badgers for years to come.
