Returning this week to chronicle the rise of Radiohead to the top of the countdown. Entering last week at #6 they quickly hit the top spot this week by a pretty solid margin. Since their tour doesn’t start up until next spring, we’ll see what kind of staying power the alt rockers have.

College football remained strong both weeks, though this week we see the end of the road is in sight. Both the ACC Championship and the SEC championship find spots this week. The big conference championship games are the gateway to bowl season, which kicks off with the December 4th selection show. The first bowls of the season are the New Mexico, Famous Idaho Potato, and New Orleans Bowls on December 17th.

Some other concert performers also made their way onto the countdown this week. Roger Waters is in full nostalgia mode with “The Wall Live Tour.” On the other end of the musical age spectrum we see Mac Miller slipping into the #10 spot. The young hip hop artist has been compared to Eminem, and his debut album, Blue Slide Park, hit #1 on release.

10 7 WWE

Interesting week, as nearly everyone on the countdown is a holdover from last week. Rare to see such a low level of “churn.” While Taylor Swift’s return to the top spot may seem surprising, it’s mostly the result of the World Series moving back to St. Louis. Fewer fans in Texas are going to make that particular commute.

The Series’ drop let the Longhorns move back to the #2 spot, and let the Breeders’ Cup make a big jump to the #3 spot. The Breeders’ Cup is a week away, still time to get your tickets and make some travel plans for Louisville.

The bottom five is pretty similar this week. The Cowboys drop a spot, and the Yellow Jackets, who had been absent after a good run, return this week as the countdown’s only “new” face. Mississippi State has hung in there for a while now, and keeps going this week. Rounding things out is the WWE, who benefited from some last minute searches last Monday.

10 - Baylor Football

This week’s top 10 list is very similar to last week. The Longhorns come out on top once more, possibly with a bit of the residual TX-OU boost from last weekend. In part 2 of a very Texas top 3, we find the Rangers. They jumped up from #10 for reasons that should be clear. Their NLCS run against the Tigers will be over this weekend, one way or another. At #3 the Cowboys hang in there for another week.

Look who is climbing back up the charts to #4 this week: the esteemed Mr. Bieber. Can’t keep a pop star down, it would seem. Following close on his heels is Taylor Swift, who lost a couple spots this week, falling to #5 after peaking last week at #3.

The bottom five finds some of our recent and usual college football suspects. The Yellow Jackets, Bulldogs, and Tigers have been bouncing around the countdown for weeks now. They’re joined this week by Baylor, who squeeze into the #10 spot, just behind the other Tigers on the list, those from the Detroit.

My prediction about Taylor Swift’s chart success hit a snag. A “small” one: Texas-OU Weekend. The Red River (totally not a) Shootout goes down at the Cotton Bowl tomorrow. TicketCity will have a team up in Dallas for any exceedingly cautious fans who made the decision to go at the very last of minutes.

Dedicated football and Taylor Swift fans can have quite the day in the greater Dallas metro area, as her big concert at Dallas Cowboys Stadium is also Saturday evening.

Rounding out the top 5 are the Cowboys, who drop from the top spot last week.

The bottom five finds a few more college football teams, some of them making their first appearance on the countdown this season.

Way down at the bottom we find the Texas Rangers, who just clenched an appearance in the ALCS. The Rangers made it all the way to the World Series last year, but lost to the SF Giants. I’m sure they plan to change that this year.

ACL hangs onto the top of the list this week, on the strength of last weekend alone. The festival will likely pass out of the countdown next week. Lots of the TicketCity crew attended with rave reviews all around. I have it on good authority there were more than a few members of the team at the #3 event on the countdown this week as well.

Journey’s show last night at the Frank Erwin Center likely caused their surge to the top three this week. Fear not if you missed them, they’ll be hanging around Texas this weekend, playing shows in Dallas and Woodlands.

College football remains the biggest force on the countdown once more this week, though concert performers are creeping back to the top as the fever pitch of the early season dies down a bit. The Cowboys likewise remain steady at #6.

Taylor Swift couldn’t hold on this week, leaving the countdown for the first time in quite a while. She gives up her seat to previous countdown stalwart, Adele, who returns in that #9 spot.
