    The first week saw 11 out of the 12 teams in the league come out undefeated, making the first edition of the power rankings a little tricky. Here's how I see it going into week 2:

    1) Maryland Terrapins (1-0): Last week they beat a very good TCU team 31-23, great way to start the season.

    2) Cal Golden Bears (1-0): Season got off to a great start by blanking Fresno State 35-0!

    3) Baylor Bears (1-0): Destroyed a good Utah team 52-7! Looks like they will have a good rushing attack this season to go along with a very talented QB.

    4) Houston Cougars (1-0): Beat North Texas by 9, 29-20 in the opener. They must have been saving themselves for week 2, a lot of offensive talent on the team.

    5) NC State Wolfpack (1-0): Dismantled Northwestern 52-7, if they can keep it up, they will be moving up this poll quick!

    6) Kansas Jayhawks (1-0): Made Texas look like little girls, won the game 30-6. Great way to start the season.

    7) Arizona State (1-0): Struggled against San Diego State 35-28, too much talent on the team to play such a tight game with a lesser team. Look for them to bounce back quickly in weeks to come.

    8) Kansas State Wildcats (1-0): Impressive victory over Boston College 31-10. Hard to rate them this low, but nearly everyone won their first game.

    9) UCLA Bruins (1-0): Defense looked stout against an over matched FAU, will need a miracle for a similar result against a talented Houston offense.

    10) Duke Blue Devils (1-0): Shut out Rice 28-0, could Duke be making a turnaround?

    11) Oregon State Bears (1-0): Nice win against Notre Dame 20-17, are the Beavs for real?

    12) Virginia Cavaliers (0-1): Lost their opener 34-6, ouch....

    Week 2 saw only four teams in action. After the dust was settled here's how I see the teams going into Week 3:

    1) Maryland Terrapins (1-0) - Idle

    2) Cal Golden Bears (1-0) - Idle

    3) Kansas Jayhawks (2-0) - Another great showing for the Jayhawks as they smoke SMU 45-24. This could be the class of the Big 12!

    4) NC State Wolfpack (1-0) - Idle

    5) Baylor Bears (2-0) - They eek'd out a close one against a decent opponent 27-24.

    6) UCLA Bruins (2-0) - Another outstanding performance by the Bruins defense, causing 4 turnovers. With a balanced offensive attack, this could be a dangerous team.

    7) Arizona State Sun Devils (1-0) - Idle

    8) Kansas State Wildcats (1-0) - Idle

    9) Duke Blue Devils (1-0) - Idle

    10) Oregon State Beavers (1-0) - Idle

    11) Houston Cougars (1-1) - Hard to win a game when you have 4 Int's, including 2 in the end zone. Probably would have won the game if they hadn't had so many mistakes

    12) Virginia Cavs (0-1) - Idle

    Week 3 was a busy week as six teams saw action. The season is beginning to get heated, conference play has started for some teams, this is where the men get separated from the boys! Week 4 Power Rankings are up!

    1) Maryland Terrapins (1-0) - Idle

    2) Cal Golden Bears (1-0) - Idle

    3) Kansas Jayhawks (2-0) - Idle

    4) NC State Wolfpack (2-0) - The Wolfpack pulled away from Wake Forest with 14 points in the 4th, making the final 35-10. Great conference victory!

    5) Duke Blue Devils (2-0) - The Blue Devils are the big risers this week with a 10 point victory over heavily favored SEC foe Arkansas 24-14. It seemed like no one really wanted to win this one as the teams combined for 9 turnovers! I guess the Blue Devils realized they couldn't get back to the books until the game was decided! Their defense caught two TD's thanks to errant throws from Arkansas QB Tyler Wilson, MVP for Duke in this one!

    6) Baylor Bears (2-0) - Idle

    7) UCLA Bruins (2-0) - Idle

    8) Kansas State Wildcats (2-0) - Nice win over newer acquired conference foe SMU!

    9) Arizona State Sun Devils (2-0) - The Sun Devils beat Missouri 38-35 with a last second FG, which capped off a 17 point 4th quarter rally! Once again the Sun Devils barely escaped without a loss, they better be careful or their luck may run out.

    10) Houston Cougars (1-1) - Idle

    11) Virginia Cavs (1-1) - Nice bounce back win for the Cavs 20-16! They are still undefeated in their conference, don't overlook the Cavs!

    12) Oregon State Beavers (1-1) - The Beavers fell this week to a talented Wisconsin squad 24-17. Oregon State's rally came up a little short but made the game interesting down the stretch. Although they lost, they really had no business winning this game, watch out for them come conference play.

    7) Duke Blue Devils (2-0) - Idle

    8) Kansas State Wildcats (3-0) - Beat a very talented Georgia team 35-31, looks like they could give Kansas a run for their money in the Big 12!

    9) Arizona State Sun Devils (3-0) - Starting to show off their talent after beating Arkansas 24-7, this is a team surely on the rise!

    10) Oregon State Beavers (1-1) - Idle

    12) Houston Cougars (1-2) - Got creamed against Oklahoma 52-17, just too much talent for the Sooners

    Golden Bears still haven't really been tested, at least not against another user. Still I am pretty happy with the showing by the defense against high powered Boise State team.

    Week 7 Power Rankings have arrived!

    1) Maryland Terrapins (4-0) - Coming off an impressive win against Duke 23-6!

    2) NC State Wolf Pack (5-0) - Highest ranked team in the dynasty so far, looking forward to an epic Maryland NC State conference clash!

    3) Oregon State Beavers (3-1) - The Beavers are the big risers this week, off the strength of two user victories so far this season, the Beav is back in consideration for Pac-12 championship talk.

    4) Baylor Bears (4-0) - Great user game win over Kansas State, leaves the Bears with a little breathing room in the Big 12. This weeks game against Houston should tell us a lot about this team.

    5) Cal Golden Bears (4-0) - Cal is looking tough so far this season, just signed the first 4 star player in the dynasty! Good time to be a Bears fan!

    6) Duke Blue Devils (3-1) - Can't knock the Blue Devils for losing to my top ranked team, 3-1 is still a great start for this team.

    7) UCLA Bruins (4-1) - Shocking win against number 3 in the land Stanford last week! If they keep it up they will be ranked soon.

    8) Kansas State Wildcats (4-1) - Tough loss last week against Baylor, they are still in the running for the Big 12, they'll just need some help now.

    9) Kansas Jay Hawks (4-1) - The Hawks beat up on Texas Tech this week, should be an great Kansas/Kansas St game this year.

    10) Virginia Cavs (4-1) - Destroyed a good Missouri team last week 42-28.

    11) Arizona State (4-1) - Let Oregon State come back and beat them last week, that's one that could haunt them for the rest of the season.

    12) Houston Cougars (3-2) - Really let Iowa State have it last week with a 42-13 win. They can move up in the rankings fast if they manage to upset Baylor this week!

    Week 9 Power Rankings

    Things are starting to heat up, some of the teams in the dynasty are ranking up fast! The next couple of weeks should include some great games! Without further ado, week 9 rankings!

    1) Maryland Terrapins (6-0) - Not even a freeze can stop this team! They continue on their march to a perfect season with a 38-11 win over Clemson!

    2) NC State Wolfpack (6-0) - Great user win over Duke last week, 37-24. This week's epic showdown against Cal is a matchup of potential ACC and Pac12 championship teams, should be a good one!

    3) Cal Golden Bears (6-0) - Won an offensive struggle last week over USC 17-7. Can the Golden Bear's make it a perfect 7-0 with a win over the Wolfpack?

    4) Baylor Bears (6-0) - Don't look now but the Bears are making a run towards a possible Big 12 championship (their first ever???). They destroyed a very talent Texas A&M team 55-13!

    5) Oregon State Beavers (5-1) - They survived last week against Colorado 27-21. This team isn't flashy but continue to pile up the wins!

    6) Virginia Cavs (6-1) - After losing their season opener, this team has quietly won 6 in a row. Could they be a darkhorse for the ACC championship???

    7) Kansas Jayhawks (5-2) - Huge win over previously undefeated Oklahoma last week 24-14!

    8) Kansas State Wildcats (5-1) - Idle

    9) UCLA Bruins (5-1) - Made a hapiless Washington team look silly, 55-7. The defense shutout Washington, but a fumble return got them on the board.

    10) Arizona State (5-2) - Lost to a tough Oregon team 28-20, making any Pac12 championship dreams hanging by a thread.

    11) Duke Blue Devils (3-3) - Talent level starting to show now that they are in ACC play as they lose 37-24 to NC State. They are going to need some recruiting classes to keep up with the big boys.

    12) Houston Cougars (3-3) - Idle

    Week 13 Power Rankings are here!

    There were a couple user games last week that really went a long way in determining who will be playing for their conference championship's! Without further ado, here are my week 13 rankings!

    1) Baylor Bears (10-0) - The Bears are the surprise team of the nation thus far, rolling thru the league without anyone slowing them down! They just beat down user controlled Kansas, 38-24 last week.

    2) NC State Wolfpack (10-0) - If the Pack keep it up, they'll be playing for the national championship! They are one user game left against Maryland, and a potential ACC championship game if they want to do it.

    3) Virginia Cavs (8-2) - The Cavs are really on a roll! They just beat user controlled Duke team 45-32 and haven't slowed down as the season has gone on, only gotten hotter!

    4) Oregon State Beavers (8-2) - The Beavers just snuck past Cal 19-14 with a TD with :30 seconds left in the game, leaving them in the drivers seat to host the Pac-12 Championship game!

    5) UCLA Bruins (9-1) - The Bruins have won six in a row and if they beat Colorado this week, they'll clinch the Pac-12 South title and put them in the inaugural Pac-12 title game!

    6) Cal Golden Bears (8-2) - Cal suffered a really tough loss last week against Oregon State last week, they are going to need help to have a chance to win the Pac-12.

    7) Maryland Terrapins (8-2) - Another tough loss, that makes two in a row for the Terps. The great start is turning into sour quick as they must work hard to salvage the season. A win over NC State in the season finale would go along way in doing so.

    8) Kansas Jayhawks (8-3) - A tough loss last week against a great Baylor team, still a great season that could end up as a 10 win season.

    9) Arizona State (6-4) - Last week Arizona State was idle

    10) Houston Cougars (5-5) - Nice win over Texas A&M last week 27-21, they still have a shot to go bowling with another win.

    11) Duke Blue Devils (4-6) - Duke suffered a loss to Virginia last week. Their talent level is really starting to show, but help is on the way as they had a good week in recruiting. They still have a shot at a bowl game if they win out.

    Nice work, Cal is 2 minutes away from being undefeated. To make matters worse I pretty much lost the game on the same play and it was the same CB who got beat on both plays (NC State TD, Oregon State 1st down on 4th and a mile on final drive).

    This is not meant to take anything away from my opponents. I am just ready to kill a certain player on my team. :mad:

    Dont worry we just lost to Clemson in triple OT. To make matters worse we fumbled in the endzone on our offensive possesion in the second OT. I think the game is over and sack their qb for a fumble to go to triple ot. Only to not make it in on the 2 pt conversion and we lose.
