When Alabama stomped Vanderbilt on the road two weeks ago, I wasn’t all that surprised. The Crimson Tide are far superior in terms of talent and depth despite Vanderbilt’s progress. Alabama then proceeded to lay a similar beating on Ole Miss last Saturday by a score of 66-3. Clemson also handled their business in a tough road spot against an ascending Virginia Tech squad, winning 31-17. My Travis Etienne love from last week’s article predictably jinxed the freshman dynamo, but powered by Kelly Bryant’s consistent improvement and a defense good enough to stop just about anyone, the Tigers are approaching untouchable status. There were many more storylines from last weekend — some of which we’ll cover below — but as far as the national title chase is concerned, it’s looking more and more like a two-horse race at the top. Let’s dig into some devy-related performances from last week, as well as a few intriguing matchups for this weekend.
