An interception halted the drive, and UC scored on Gerrid Doaks’ third touchdown (2 rush, 1 reception), as the Bearcats cemented their victory. UC is first in the AAC East.

1. Ohio State (7-0) OSU has simply been steamrolling everybody. Their latest victim? Northwestern on the road, and it didn’t matter if they played on Pluto: 52-3 Bucks.
2. Alabama (7-0) They haven’t played a true cupcake, but Tennessee is on its last legs this season. Bama’ won by 22 at home in Crimson Tide fashion.
3. Clemson (7-0) Also have been fairly tested, perhaps a little too much. Playing at Louisville though was easy work, 45-10.
4. LSU (6-0) The Bayou Bengals came out of the huge Florida victory, and did not disappoint, beating Miss St easily away from home.
5. Oklahoma (6-0) They annihilated WVU at home 52-14, Jalen Hurts is looking phenomenal.

Sports 24/7 Under the Radar
1. SMU (7-0) Barely beating Tulsa in triple overtime? Not impressive. Beating a ranked Temple team by 24? Very impressive, Pony UP.
2. Cincinnati (6-1) A little ugly but UC holds on versus Tulsa to keep major bowl hopes alive.
3. Memphis (5-1) The Tigers played a very skilled Tulane team, and dominated the entire game.
4. Navy (4-1) Navy shoots up to fourth on this list with a convincing trounce of USF, 35-3.
5. App State (5-0) They remain undefeated after obliterating ULM, but it’s hard to see them rise above teams on this list with Sun Belt opponents.
Dropped Out: Boise State, UCF
