But look for Stanford to slide down the Futility Rankings should they come out and give – Oregon – a game on the 22nd. Losing is not the sole domain of traditional doormat schools. Trice was brought out of the game, obviously injured badly.
It is still possible to find Ann Arbor, MI on the map. The place does exist and is filled with kind, caring and genuine people who are exceptionally disappointed. Following a 39-7 thrashing to a team called the Ducks, one of American Football’s flagship programs is in the dumper.
NEEDS TO: Put it all together. They’ve been close several times this season, with OT losses to Texas and Kansas State, along with other near-hits (five-point losses at Oklahoma and Kansas and losses by two and five against Nebraska).

Oklahoma State is probably the only team that can play itself out of a tournament bid with a loss. With a favorable crowd in Oklahoma City and an opponent OSU has already beaten by 19, a slip up against the Cyclones would be a huge blow, and would leave the Cowboys sweating on Selection Sunday.
Entering week 3, the Texas A&M Aggies take on the Vandals of Idaho. Tune into this game on Saturday the 17th of September. Both of these team are in the C-USA – West conference. The Idaho Vandals came in ranked 60th in putting points on the board last year. The stats tell me that the Texas A&M Aggies will walk away champs in this one. Last year, the Texas A&M Aggies came in at 9 – 4 and the Vandals completed the season at 6 – 7.
The Iowa-Northwestern game is one of 14 night games being played inside the Big Ten Conference this season. The Wildcats have been a thorn in Iowa’s side the last two years. Northwestern ended the team’s run at perfection in 2010 and then edged the Hawks last year in Evanston, Illinois.
