CFB 24/7  


Ranking every FBS team at midseason: Nos. 61-70


61. Texas Tech (2-4)

Buzz: The Red Raiders' best performance may have come in a loss, last week's setback to West Virginia in which the Mountaineers kicked a last-play field goal to win it.

62. Penn State (4-2)

Buzz: The Nittany Lions are living proof that you can have perhaps the best pure passer in the nation (Christian Hackenberg) but still have a woeful offense.

63. Colorado (2-4)

Buzz: The offense is fine. The defense? It's bad.

64. Arkansas State (4-2)

Buzz: The Red Wolves have been to the Bowl in each of the past three seasons. They appear bowl-bound again, but you'll have to excuse them if they're not all that keen on returning to Mobile, Ala., for a fourth consecutive year.

65. Michigan (3-4)

Buzz: That loud ticking noise you hear? That's the clock running out on Brady Hoke's time in Ann Arbor.

66. Houston (3-3)

Buzz: The Cougars have six games left, and just one (Friday night vs. Temple) is against a team that has a winning record.

67. Memphis (3-3)

Buzz: The Tigers have had one winning record since 2005, but appear on their way to at least seven wins this season.

68. North Carolina State (4-3)

Buzz: The Wolfpack opened 4-0, but since have lost three consecutive ACC games. NCSU played well in a loss to Florida State, but lost to Boston College and Clemson by a combined 71-14.

69. North Carolina (2-4)

Buzz: In the Tar Heels' four losses, the opposition has averaged 51 points and 548.3 yards per game.

70. Toledo (4-3)

Buzz: The Rockets look to be the best team in the MAC. But that's not saying all that much this season.
