Undefeated college football teams in 2017

There wasn’t a single team in the FBS that went undefeated last season, and this year’s crop is shrinking by the minute. Four undefeateds lost in Week 6 (including No. 3 Oklahoma and No. 7 Michigan), leaving just 13 teams with a goose egg in the loss column heading into Week 7.

The following undefeated teams are listed by their rankings in the AP Top 25 Poll:

No. 1 Alabama (6-0)

Week 7 opponent: Arkansas (2-3)

Forecast: Texas A&M kept it close, but Alabama picked up its 20th straight win in SEC play with a 27-19 victory in Week 6. The Crimson Tide has shown no signs of slowing down and now returns to Tuscaloosa to welcome the struggling Razorbacks who were manhandled by South Carolina.

No. 2 Clemson (6-0)

Week 7 opponent: at Syracuse (2-3)

​Forecast: It wasn’t as pretty as Dabo’s boys hoped, but the Tigers took care of business against Wake Forest at home and now head to upstate New York in Week 7 still unscathed.

No. 3 Penn State (6-0)

Week 7 opponent: Michigan (4-0)

​Forecast: Saquon Barkley failed to register a rushing yard in the first half agaianst Northwestern, but the Nittany Lions broke out in the second half to stay perfect. Now comes the gauntlet of Michigan, Ohio State and Michigan State in consecutive weeks.

No. 4 Georgia (6-0)

Week 7 opponent: Kentucky (1-3)

​Forecast: The Dawgs have scored 40 points in back to back games now and are rolling on both sides of the ball. Next up, they return home for the first time in three weeks to host the Tigers a week before Florida comes to town.

No. 5 Washington (6-0)

Week 6 opponent: Arizona State (2-3)

​Forecast: The Huskies won their last two games by a combined score of 80-14, so you might say they’re hot right now. But Washington still has a back-loaded conference schedule with games against Oregon, Stanford, Utah and Washington State in their final four weeks.

No. 6 TCU (5-0)

Week 7 opponent: at Kansas State (3-1)

​Forecast: After a high-drama win over No. 23 West Virginia, the Horned Frogs head to Manhattan for a road test against Kansas State.

No. 7 Wisconsin (5-0)

Week 7 opponent: Purdue (3-2)

​Forecast: Wisconsin finished strong against Nebraska in Week 6, scoring the final two touchdowns in a 38-17 win. A Nov. 18 home date with Michigan is likely the biggest challenge remaining on the Badgers’ schedule.

No. 8 Washington State (6-0)

Week 7 opponent: California (3-2)

​Forecast: There was no follow-up dissapointment for the Cougars, who defeated Oregon 33-10 in Eugene a week after topping then-No. 5 USC in Week 6. Next up for Wazzu is another road test against Cal. Four of the Cougars’ final six games will come away from Pullman.

No. 11 Miami (Fla.) (4-0)

Week 7 opponent: Georgia Tech (3-1)

​Forecast: It took all 60 minutes to take down the Seminoles, but the Hurricanes made it happen when it counted. Now they turn their attention to Georgia Tech and Syracuse before a matchup with North Carolina.

No. 18 South Florida (5-0)

Week 6 opponent: Bye week

​Forecast: The Bulls, which have one of the highest scoring offenses in the country, scored a season-high 61 points against against East Carolina. South Florida has a bye week before hosting Cincinnati.

No. 19 San Diego State (6-0)

Week 6 opponent: Boise State (3-2)

​Forecast: After three straight one-posession wins, the Aztecs finally got a comfortable ‘W’ against UNLV, 41-10. Next up are the ever-tricky Boise State Broncos, always a dangerous matchup.

No. 22 UCF (4-0)

Week 6 opponent: East Carolina (1-5)

​Forecast: UCF won a weather-shortened 51-23 conference game against Cincinnati in Week 6. That’s 51 points in less than three full quarters. Not bad. The Golden Knights return against East Carolina next week.

No. 25 Navy (5-0)

Week 7 opponent: Memphis (4-1)

​Forecast: Navy held off a resilient Air Force squad, winning a high-scoring affair by three points. Next up is road trip vs. Memphis, before a huge test against No. 25 UCF.
