The Tailgater College Football Rankings: Top 25, Week 2
And the craziness continues. Lose to Virginia in week 1, topple Texas seven days later– makes sense, BYU. Illinois, which barely survived what should have been a week 1 cakewalk, blew out the Bearcats. Most notably, the Gators ruined their own chances in Miami as the ‘Canes scored a huge early-season win and leapt up the polls.
Here is a look at our individual college football rankings after week 2:
5. Ohio State
7. Oklahoma State
8. Florida State
9. Texas A&M
15. Northern Illinois
18. Fresno State
19. Miami (FL)
21. South Carolina
23. Bowling Green
25. Notre Dame
6. Ohio State
7. Texas A&M
8. Florida State

This season I am writing the weekend recap of the top quarterback performances among Golden Arm Award candidates. The award only keeps track of senior players, so you won’t see any Johnny Manziel, Teddy Bridgewater or Braxton Miller talk here, but there are some really good quarterbacks out there to keep tabs on. My top five performers round-up will be posted every Monday by Athlon...

Aaron Murray was 1-9 against teams ranked 15th or higher entering Saturday. He can put one more in the win column.
Murray shined in Georgia’s win over South Carolina throwing for 309 yards and four touchdowns thanks largely to the Bulldogs offensive line giving him time to throw early in the game.

ATHENS - Georgia QB Aaron Murray talks about Georgia's 41-30 win over South Carolina.
The Georgia Bulldogs could not lose to two ranked teams in a row. Aaron Murray had to make amends for a dismal game last year. Mark Richt could not allow the whispers begin whether he could win big games when he needed to. And when all was said and done, the Bulldogs beat South Carolina 41-30 in Athens, allowing Georgia to keep its hopes of competing for a national title alive, while...

Week two of the college football season was jam-packed with great games that kept fans on the edge of their seats – Georgia’s Aaron Murray had a spectacular game against Steve Spurrier’s Gamecocks and the Michigan vs. Notre Dame showdown came down to the wire. But the most surprising result came from the Texas vs. BYU matchup – the Cougars stomped the Longhorns, 40-21.
Jadeveon Clowney smothered Aaron Murray for his first sack of the season.
Otherwise, the South Carolina star's name was barely called Saturday.
That's starting to sound familiar.
With Clowney turning in another rather quiet performance, Murray carved up the Gamecocks defense with 309 yards passing and four touchdowns, leading 11th-ranked Georgia to a 41-30 victory over...
The game just ended, and four hours earlier, Georgia coach Mark
Richt was a loser. Aaron Murray couldn't win the big one. Steve
Spurrier was a genius, with a real chance at a run for another
national championship. Jadeveon Clowney was the best player in the
country. Until this: Georgia 41, South Carolina 30.

Heading into week 2, the uneducated eye might have seen a rather lackluster slate of games. Sure, there were fewer marquee matchups than we’ll see going forward, but a handful of games delivered on their promise of excitement. Georgia bounced back from a close loss at Clemson to throw the SEC East into early-season chaos– the Dawgs, South Carolina, and Florida (the three...
Well, that was painful. For the last half decade South Carolina has garnered success on the football field by fielding a stout defense and a competent offense. That went out the window Saturday night. A Georgia offensive line that was abysmal last week played like road graders this week. When Todd Gurley wasn't running through or around the defense Aaron Murray was converting...
