BSL Deified Dozen: 2018 College Football Week 9 Poll
Welcome to the 2018 BSL Deified Dozen rankings. Each week during the season our panel of experts will rank the Top 12 teams in college football. Members of our panel include: CT Schwink, Rob Shields, Mike Lowe, Zack Kiesel, Brian (Pedro Cerrano) McGuire, Chris (Ricker Says) Ricker, Steve Birrer, Mike Randall and Chris Garman. We are looking forward to an exciting season of college football.
In Week 9 we welcomed back two former members of the Deified Dozen who made a return to the rankings in #11 Kentucky and #12 West Virginia. This followed an upset loss by Texas and Florida’s loss to #5 Georgia. The Bulldog’s win allowed them to flip-flop positions with #6 Michigan, and #3 Notre Dame’s win over Navy helped them do the same over idle #4 LSU. We look forward to seeing how the Dozen will compare to the CFP committee’s first rankings of the season, to be released Tuesday night.
Week 10 will be a huge week in college football and for members of the Deified Dozen. The matchup of the week, and perhaps the season so far, is #1 Alabama venturing to Death Valley to face #4 LSU. Meanwhile #5 Georgia has little time to celebrate their Cocktail Party win, as they must travel to Lexington to play #11 Kentucky. #12 West Virginia goes to Austin to play the recently-booted Longhorns, while #3 Notre Dame has a sneaky-tough game on the road at Northwestern.
