    No. 7 Florida at No. 5 LSU. No. 6 Oklahoma against No. 11 Texas. No. 10 Penn State at No. 17 Iowa. USC at Notre Dame. Alabama at Texas A&M. Florida State goes to Clemson. There have been few surprises so far this season and the same six teams have totally dominated the top of the rankings. Maybe that changes this week? Ross Dellenger of Sports Illustrated joins AP’s Ralph Russo to break down a big weekend in college football. Ross covers college football nationally but he was a beat writer covering LSU for five years previously. He explains why LSU is finally embracing modern offense under Ed Orgeron and the interesting road Joe Burrow took to Baton Rouge. Can Florida be the first team to slow down the flying Tigers? Plus, can Texas's defensive coordinator come up with a plan to slow down Jalen Hurts? Just how good is Penn State? Were the expectations out of whack for Jimbo Fisher’s second season at A&M? Can Clay Helton still save his job at USC? Is Clemson ready to break out?
