Ohio State coach Urban Meyer still confident in QB TJ Barrett

Ohio State coach Urban Meyer still confident in QB TJ Barrett

All six of Mayfield's touchdown passes this season - three against the Miners and three against Ohio State - have been to different Sooners. They don't need to pretend that the same intensity will be needed Saturday to beat Georgia State as it will be to take down MI and Ohio State. The Sooners lost two fumbles that ended drives, and missed a field goal, but otherwise pretty much had their way with the Buckeyes all game, amassing 490 yards of total offense on the road. He often resorted to pulling the ball down and taking off himself. Mayfield, a Heisman finalist last season, threw for 386 yards and three touchdowns as No. 5 Oklahoma rallied to knock off the second-ranked Buckeyes. That's a testament to the preparation and play-calling of first-year coach Lincoln Riley.

Meyer said he reassured Barrett after the game and will try to make sure he remains confident. "We just had to put it all together", Oklahoma cornerback Ogbonnia Okoronkwo told the Daily Oklahoman after the win over Ohio State. We competed at a high, high level. That is Dwayne being ready to help us go win a game.

Mayfield was 27 of 35 with TD passes to Dimitri Flowers, Lee Morris and Trey Sermon. "I understand why they're very upset about it".

Meyer said everything is being evaluated this week before Army visits Saturday, although he continues to be resolute that Barrett's starting job is not in danger. In other words, they're really, really good.

Why wouldn't the best players in the country go to Texas and USC? Oklahoma dominated the yardage battle and evened the home-and-home series after last season's 45-24 loss. Miami (Fla.) and Florida State had their game moved back to October 7. Virginia Tech travels to East Carolina this week before big home games against Old Dominion and Clemson.

Oklahoma: The Sooners staked a legitimate claim as a national championship contender.

Ohio State and UNLV will square off at at noon ET on Saturday, Sept. 23.

Consider it payback for OU's 45-24 loss to Ohio State past year in Norman. Somebody else might win it this year, but they're going to have to pry it from him.

"We're still No. 2", OU senior cornerback Jordan Thomas said. "Nobody points fingers. Own up to it and get to work tomorrow".

Due to their inactivity, all four fell at least one spot.

Inflation hits 2.9% as fuel and clothing costs grow
Headline inflationary pressure should begin to moderate in 2018 as the large moves in the pound drop out of the reported numbers. In July, inflation remained at 2.6% , the level it had reached in June, with some economists suggesting it had "topped out".


This will be the first ever meeting between Ohio State and UNLV. The Irish, which lost 20-19 to Georgia, lost seven games by eight points or less last season. Barrett also has been hesitant to throw at all, unless the wide receivers are open.

University of Missouri sophomore running back Damarea Crockett (Little Rock Christian) was having a nice game Saturday night during the Tigers' SEC matchup with SC in Columbia, Mo., until he jogged off Faurot Field with an injury in the third quarter.

Here are five things we learned from Saturday's top-five showdown that should carry College Football Playoff implications later. Our preparation was great.

Prior to the season, some called the Ohio State Buckeyes overrated due to their No. 2 ranking.
