Bohls: Make way for the Pirate

Posted October 1st, 2017

Week 5 brought little change to my Associated Press Top 25 college football ballot.

Except for the Pirate.

Perfect Washington State’s upset of USC ushered Pirate lover Mike Leach’s club into the Top 10 at No. 8. Otherwise, it’s much the same as Alabama and Clemson took care of business in impressive fashion, respectively bludgeoning Ole Miss and stopping Virginia Tech.
