ESPN releases college football power rankings after Week 1


Aside from showdown between the Clemson Tigers and the Georgia Bulldogs, it was not the most exciting of opening weeks.

Here’s a super fast recap:

Georgia defeated Clemson 10-3.
Alabama looked like, well, Alabama, in a 44-13 blowout over Miami.
Ohio State and Oklahoma actually both struggled in wins over unranked teams.
Texas A&M was dominant against Kent State.
Iowa State only beat unranked Northern Iowa by six.
Penn State took down Wisconsin in a top-25 battle.
10th ranked UNC fell to Virginia Tech.

After the first week of action, ESPN released its power rankings.

Below are the top 10 teams according to ESPN:

7. Clemson

Without the threat of a consistent running game, Georgia’s defense teed off on D.J. Uiagalelei and blitzed him early and often. Clemson’s offensive line also played poorly against the Bulldogs’ deep defensive line.

6. Cincinnati

Cincinnati Bearcats linebacker Darrian Beavers (0) hits Miami Redhawks quarterback AJ Mayer (10) in the second half of the NCAA football game on Saturday, Sept. 4, 2021, at Nippert Stadium in Cincinnati. Cincinnati Bearcats defeated Miami Redhawks 49-14.Cincinnati Bearcats Miami Redhawks
