Where is Oklahoma?
That's my big question after the top seven teams in the College Football Playoff Rankings won in Week 12.
Oklahoma saved their season — and avoided their first two-loss regular season since 2016 — with a 25-point comeback vs. Baylor on Saturday. The Sooners, however, aren't in great playoff positioning with two regular-season weeks remaining. On this week's episode of the High Motor podcast, I said what the top 10 will be and Chase Kiddy said what the top 10 should be.
LSU's Week 2 visit to Texas was the non-conference college football game entering the 2019 season and it lived up to its novelty billing. What's the non-conference college football game of 2020?
Ranking the top 10 non-conference games of 2020:
10. Florida State vs. West Virginia
Week 1 – Atlanta, Ga.
Two bad teams in a neutral-site game. Pass, right? Florida State's coaching situation is the only reason this game makes the list. All eyes will be on Mike Norvell, Mike Stoops, Odell Haggins or Deion flippin' Sanders as the Seminoles look to stop sucking at football.
Self Mocks Enaruna
Everyone saw George Papas' last-second steal and dunk in Monmouth's 55-point loss to Kansas on Friday night. But did you see Bill Self's comments after the game? Self, who once blasted Brannen Greene for dunking at the buzzer, mocked his Tristan Enaruna, whom Papas stole the ball from and dunked over:
"We've been on Tristan the whole time about being casual, and that's a prime example of what happens when you're casual. I told the team afterwards he may be on ESPN twice for two dunks: One on him and one he got."
Monmouth head coach King Rice wasn't as amused, saying, "We’re down by 100 points and then we dunk and then we bark at the kid. That’s uncalled for."
(George Papas behaved himself on Monday night.)
