Around the American Football: Cincinnati shut out, USF fumbles game away 

Around the American Football: Cincinnati shut out, USF fumbles game away 

The UConn football team hung with Illinois on Saturday in a 31-23 loss, but that was one of the only close games the American Athletic Conference had to offer in Week Two. USF played a tight game with Georgia Tech, but the rest of the games were blowouts, some in favor of the AAC teams and others not so much.

Luke’s Triple Option: So, you don’t want football to end after the Super Bowl

There are 172 teams between the NFL and major college football, and for 171 of them, the season is already over. The Patriots will cruise to a Super Bowl victory next week because the universe owes us nothing, and Patriots fans will pretend that their 30th championship in the last 20 years is just as meaningful as the last 29.

When it comes to football, the American Conference’s crown jewel is the University of Central Florida. The self-proclaimed National Champions have a 9-0 record this season and are ranked as the No.12 team in the country. Michael Logan and Neil Simmons debate whether or not they are worthy of the College Playoff discussion.

Every Saturday, you have your pick of 50 games to watch, dozens of stories to follow, multiple division races that have yet to wrap up and every single style of the sport imaginable. If you can’t enjoy the sport just because the upper echelon is chalk this year, you’ve got to open your eyes.

UConn’s one and only hope would be that the Crimson Tide actually think the game is being played in Storrs and show up here 30 minutes before kickoff, because the thought of a prestigious sports school playing its college football games almost an hour away from campus is so insane to them.

Well, we’re a week into October and a good portion into the 2018 college football season, so you all know what that means. It’s time for all the American teams who were overlooked and/or disrespected prior to the season to start popping up in the Top 25 and get their due, despite it being too late in the season for people to overcome the initial anchoring effect of their omission.

Luke’s Triple Option: Big Tex burns down Week 6

I didn’t quite spend all of Saturday watching an unhealthy amount of college football, I spent a bunch of it in the Rentschler Field press box eating Chick-Fil-A and barbecue, mostly ignoring the football game going on 100 or so feet below me.

I did, however, catch most of the primetime games, and sank my teeth deep into the advanced box scores and the highlights to give you, dear reader, an update on the world of college football.

Yes, everybody knows that UConn football was obliterated by Cincinnati 49-7 this weekend. No one needs a reminder of that. But if you can stomach reading about more college football this week, here’s how the rest of the teams from the American Athletic Conference did.
