Week Two Power Rankings (NCAA)

1. Alabama Crimson Tide– They came out last week and handled their business as we all expected them too in the opener against the Louisville Cardinals. I know that Nick Saban will continue to use both Jalen Hurts and Tua Tagovailoa because he can, but moving forward, I’d continue to stick with Tua because he brings more explosiveness to their offense. No disrespect to Jalen, but you won’t score 50 or have the chance to reach the 50 point plateau with him under center. Continue to use Tua until you’re forced to make a decision when it matters the most.

2. Clemson Tigers– Just like the team above them, they are another group with quarterback questions. Both Kelly Bryant and Trevor Lawrence are each good enough to start elsewhere on any team in the nation. Last week, they each played five series. Bryant led them to 17 points and Trevor led them to 31. I feel Kelly Bryant should still remain the starter because he’s the guy that got you to the ACC Championship game last year and the playoffs, but many expect that Lawrence will be the guy by midseason.

3. Georgia Bulldogs– Their tune-up for their SEC opener against South Carolina went in their favor, of course. Many think they won’t be as good as they were last season, but I’m not going that far. If Fromm continues to play well, D’Andre Swift keeps running the ball well and the defense shows up like we know they can, they will be in the driver’s seat in the SEC East once again this year. Let’s see what they do on the road today and I’m considering this a trap game. They can’t come in with too much confidence.

4. Ohio State Buckeyes– I was so impressed with Dwayne Haskins in his debut as the new quarterback for the Buckeyes. He threw for 313 yards passing and five touchdown passes and the Buckeyes offense altogether racked up 721 yards of total offense against a horrible Oregon State team. I can’t wait to see what Ohio State does against a team with a real defense. Haskins won’t be doing this weekly.

5. Wisconsin Badgers– They got off to a slow start in their opener a week ago but when they found their rhythm, there was no turning back. Alex Hornibrook threw for 257 yards and a pair of touchdown passes and Jonathan Taylor had another day at the office rushing for 145 yards in three quarters. That was all that was needed for Wisconsin to get the win and now, they have won 40 straight non-conference games at home.
