IOWA CITY, Iowa – We’ve reached the quarter poll of the college football season and while the Hawkeyes might be undefeated, Pat and Rob are not, although each has posted a perfect week. Harty’s came last week and he pulled within a game of the lead.
Iowa 38, North Texas 17: The Mean Green despite being overmatched, on the road and not very good even by their standards keep the game close for a while after hearing Dan McCarney’s pep talk in which he cries, laughs, and ultimately convinces each of his players that they’re about to shock the college football world.
Michigan 27, BYU 24: Jake Rudock completes two passes on fourth-and-1 for two yards each to keep the game-winning drive alive.
Texas A&M 34, Arkansas 31: Bret Bielema announces afterwards that he will stop making controversial comments about other teams until the Razorbacks start winning again.
Kentucky 20, Missouri 17: John Calipari receives verbal commitments from two 5-star one-and-done mega recruits during the course of this game.
Arizona State 34, USC 31: To sort of borrow a line from Dean Vernon Wormer in Animal House; drunk at a team function and losing games like this is no way to go through life, coach.
Last week: 5-0

Texas A&M 27, Arkansas 24: After the game, Bret Bielema makes fun of the Aggies not having any tough games on their schedule.
