2017 Fierce 40: Week 1

Fierce 40 - Top 40 College Football Teams - Preseason







Alabama 1-0 W:#2 Florida State 24-7


It took only  one week for the Tide to ascend to a very familiar place.


Ohio State 1-0 W:Indiana 49-21 1

The Buckeyes were losing at halftime and it took awhile to kick the rust off the offense.


Clemson 1-0 W:Kent State 56-3 5

Yes it was Kent State but Clemson was dangerously efficient. 43 carries for 353 yards as Clemson had four people rush for between 50 and 90 yards...a true team effort.


USC 1-0 W: Western Michigan 49-31 4

This game was tied going to the 4th but it looked like this had more to do with Western Michigan being better then everyone was giving them credit for.


Penn State 1-0 W:Akron 52-0 7

Saquon Barkley putting an early bid in for some Heisman hardware.


Washington 1-0 W: Rutgers 30-14 6

Special Teams and Dante Pettis stepping up in a big way on a night when the Huskies couldn't get the running game going.


Oklahoma 1-0 W:UTEP 56-7 8

Lincoln Riley off to a fast start as Oklahoma did whatever it wanted to on offnese. Mark Andrews will show the nation that he is the top tight end in the country.


Wisconsin 1-0 W:Utah State 59-10 10

The Badgers spotted Utah State 10 points and then put the hammer down.


Michigan 1-0 W:#20 Florida 33-17 12

Getting 6 sacks on Gator quarterbacks showed the Wolverine defense still has teeth even after all their losses on the defensive side of the ball from last years squad.


Oklahoma State 1-0 W:Tulsa 59-24 11

Rudolph to Washington...get ready to hear that combo a lot this season.



1-0 W:Purdue 9

485 yards for the Lamar Jackson show but a lowly Purdue team hanging with Louisville has to be concerning.


Florida State 0-1 L:#3 Alabama 7-24 2

The Seminoles managed just 40 yards on the ground against Alabama and the deepest defensive line in the country.


Auburn 1-0 W:Georgia Southern 41-7 13

351 rushing yards and 3 touchdowns on the ground but Auburn mixed in enough of the passing game to come off as balanced and effective.


Stanford 1-0 W:Rice 62-7 14

Just total decimation,,,it looked like Stanford was playing a JV team.


Georgia 0-0 W:Appalachian State 15

A solid win for Georgia but at what cost...the jury is out on the injury to quarterback Jacob Eason.


Miami 1-0 W:Bethune-Cookman 41-13 16

Miami shows that having the only returning 1,000 yard rusher in the ACC can be a big deal.


LSU 1-0 W:#29 BYU 18

LSU blanked a ranked squad and held them to -5 yards rushing...who says defense doesn't win games anymore.


South Florida 2-0 W:Stony Brook 31-17 17

South Florida has yet to really break out but a 2-0 start is still as good as you could help.


TCU 1-0 W:Jackson State 63-0 23

Jackson State allowed the horned Frogs to put it on cruise control, the same can not be said with the upcoming contest against Arkansas.


Colorado 1-0 W:Colorado State 17-3 21

The Colorado defense is looking stingy again.


Tennessee 1-0 W:#32 Georgia Tech 42-41 2OT 24

The Colorado defense is looking stingy again.


Arkansas 1-0 W: Florida A&M 49-7 26

Showdown with TCU looms large for both clubs.


Maryland 1-0 W: #22 Texas 51-41 NR

Maryland was supposed to be a "team for the future" after another outstanding recruiting effort...looks like the future is now.


Oregon 1-0 W:Southern Utah 77-21 27

Royce Freeman with 4 touchdowns and over 200 yards of offnese as the Ducks show they can score as much as their basketball team.


Virginia Tech 1-0 W:#19 West Virginia 31-24 NR

Josh Jackson looked like an all-world quarterback against West Virginia showing a ton of poise and maturity.


Washington State 1-0 W:Montana State 31-0 31

The Cougars had lost their last five openers in a row, so even a win against an FCS opponenet here is big.


Boise State 1-0 W:Troy 24-13 33

Great performance against a solid Troy football team.


Kansas State 1-0 W:Central Arkansas 55-19 36

An efficient performance while registering a +3 in the turnover department.

29 West Virginia 0-1

L:Virginia Tech 24-31


An efficient performance while registering a +3 in the turnover department.


Notre Dame 1-0 W:Temple 49-16 NR

Opener went about as well as it could have for Notre Dame, especially their defense.


Florida 0-1 L:#12 Michigan 17-33 20

Lots of mistakes to clean up, even with missing a ton of players.


UCLA 1-0 W:#28 Texas A&M 45-44 34

So this is why we have talked about Josh Rosen ever since he came to UCLA.


Georgia Tech 0-1 L:#24 Tennessee 41-42 2OT 32

Over 530 yards rushing and you lose.....that's a first.


Memphis 1-0 W:Louisiana-Monroe 37-29 30

The Tigers didn't exactly come blazing out of the gate to start 2017 but they got the victory.


Iowa 1-0 W:#39 Wyoming 24-3 40

The Hawkeyes shut down star quarterback Josh Allen.


Western Kentucky 1-0 W:Eastern Kentucky 31-17 35

Jury is still out on the defense but overall not a bad start for the Hilltoppers.


South Carolina 1-0 W:#25 NC State 35-28 NR

So much talk surrounding the defenisve line of NC State that many overlooked the Gamecocks.


Northwestern 1-0 W:Nevada 31-20 38

This game hung in the balance for awhile, it's a win but Northwestern failed to impress anybody.


BYU 1-1 L:#18 LSU 0-27 29

The Cougars won't have long to regroup with #40 Utah coming to town.


Utah 1-0 W:North Dakota 37-16 NR

North Dakota is not a pushover FCS school so this was a strong showing.

Dropped Out: Texas, NC State, Baylor, Texas A&M and Wyoming.
