4 teams in top 10 lose to unranked teams in wild Week 7, and that’s just the start

Expect to see a whole lot of shakeup in the polls after all this.

Most of the first six weeks of the 2017 college football season were relatively sleepy. We had some big games and a big upset or two, but each week, it felt like we were just kicking the chaos down the road.

In Week 7, chaos caught up.

These teams are no longer unbeaten, thanks to unranked teams ...

... these ranked teams also lost to unranked teams ...

... and these ranked teams nearly lost to unranked teams.

That’s half of the ranked teams that were in action, plus all sorts of business elsewhere!

Oh, and Louisville let Boston College score 45 points in an upset, maybe the most surprising number of them all, and Tennessee somehow turned four red zone trips into nine points in a loss, which is the least surprising thing here.

This is all in addition to the usual silliness, topped by a rabbit taking over Oregon-Stanford.

Yeah, sure, these ranked teams took care of business ...

  • No. 1 Alabama 41, Arkansas 9
  • No. 4 Georgia 53, Missouri 28
  • No. 6 TCU 26, Kansas State 6
  • No. 7 Wisconsin 17, Purdue 9
  • No. 9 Ohio State 56, Nebraska 14
  • No. 14 Oklahoma State 59, Baylor 16
  • No. 18 USF 33, Cincinnati 3
  • No. 20 NC State 35, Pitt 17
  • No. 21 Michigan State 30, Minnesota 27
  • No. 22 UCF 63, East Carolina 21
  • No. 23 Stanford 49, Oregon 7

... but some people are just no fun.
