In the college football world, only 13 teams remain unbeaten going into Week 7 on the season. Some have snatched victories from the jaws of defeat on multiple occasions, others have been dominant in each game they’ve played.
Multiple unbeaten teams will play each-other as the season progresses, like the Kentucky Wildcats and Georgia Bulldogs facing off this weekend. Additionally, Michigan and Michigan State, as well as Oklahoma and Oklahoma State will battle later this year.
Additionally, lesser-known entities with gigantic hopes and dreams like the Coastal Carolina Chanticleers remain unbeaten. Moreover, the SMU Mustangs and UTSA Roadrunners are also enjoying memorable starts to their season.
Who’s the king of the undefeated teams? CBS Sports ranked the 13 remaining unbeaten team in college football.

Unbeaten Teams: What’s Next?
First, the Georgia Bulldogs and Kentucky Wildcats square off this weekend in a game that’ll remove one of these teams from the list. If Mark Stoops can knock off the Bulldogs, Kentucky could rocket up the rankings.
Next, the Oklahoma Sooners take on some of the easier competition inside the Big 12 — with their next couple games against TCU, Kansas and Texas Tech. It’s the perfect time for them to let Caleb Williams get his feet wet as the teams starting quarterback.
Additionally, Cincinnati, Iowa and Michigan all face unranked squads in their next game. However, a matchup with Michigan State looms large for the Wolverines at the end of October.
Can Wake Forest actually run the table? While many have been waiting for the Demon Deacons to finally lose, they just keep piling up victories. If they can enter November unbeaten, their schedule of NC State, Clemson and Boston College will be tough to get through.
Finally, Coastal Carolina, SMU and UTSA are making things interesting for the underdogs. Could this finally be the year we see a relatively unknown program make waves in the College Football Playoff rankings? The Chanticleers easily have the best shot. However, the lack of competition on their remaining schedule could be detrimental.
