I see by the clock on the wall it is still football season, and the countdown reflects that quite clearly. Back to the top this week are The Boys, who meet the (and this sounds odd) undefeated Detroit Lions this Sunday in a home game up in Arlington. That game is going to be a lot more interesting than it was a few months ago.

After slipping off the countdown last week, Taylor Swift roars back to the #2 spot, an impressive achievement in a football heavy environment. She has something in common with the Dallas Cowboys, too. While they are away, she’ll be borrowing their stadium for a huge show on October 8th.

Lots more college football on the list this week. The also undefeated Longhorns hit the #3 spot, followed by Virginia Tech, who returns strong after a brief absence. Mississippi State rounds out the top five, having lost a spot since last week.

Adele stages a bit of comeback to kick off the bottom five, where we find some more of the usual suspects, as well as a couple more teams that haven’t been on the countdown quite so regularly: Oklahoma State and Clemson. Miss Swift will probably make a strong bid for #1 in the new couple weeks, we’ll see if she makes it.

The Hokies, out of nowhere, take the top spot this week. Fun fact: my dad was a “Hokie.” While I did not follow in his footsteps, it did make getting an acceptance letter from Tech pretty easy. They are followed by one of the usual suspects this time of year, the Longhorns, who hold onto the number #2 spot this week. We find the esteemed Mr. Bieber in the countdown at #3, followed by a newcomer to the countdown who posted a similar “out of nowhere” performance.

Mindless Behavior is a boy band, or so Wikipeida tells me. Doesn’t tell me much more than that. I guess they’re not quite Menudo, NKOTB, or ‘N Sync yet. They have an album, the charmingly titled #1 Girl, and have been the opening act on Janet Jackson’s recent greatest hits tour.

The reminder of the countdown is far more conservative. While the schools change, college football is a constant, as are the Cowboys, as this the point in the season where optimism abounds.

ACL Fest returns to the countdown. The festival kicks off September 16th, so we’re only three weeks away now. Be sure to stay cool out there, as the forecast is for more of the same toasty temps from the past few months. Better than rain, at least.
