    My niece will be crushed. She's a sophomore and she and her Dad were just convinced of a big showdown with SC at the end of the year. It's always a big game but now it won't have quite the drama that it would have if both teams were unbeaten.

      Too bad the beating wasn't on USC. Well, looking forward to the Longhorns doing it to them. 62-0 against a solid Baylor team. Arizona should win their last remaining games with a very good, 'true freshman' quarterback. That is the spark the Wildcats needed. If they win their last two games, then they should finish the season in the middle of the Pac 10 standings per what the press predicted this past summer. This could also catapult the Arizona Wildcats next year as a top ranked Pac 10 team. We'll...see. I'm not going to count the chicken eggs before they've hatched.

        Have we successfully narrowed it down to only two unbeaten teams?

        Its so much *cleaner* that way.

            Any idea what the remainder of their schedule looks like? Is the SEC going to get boned again?

              VERY difficult - #6 LSU and at #17 Auburn. To top it off, they will likely play Georgia in the SEC championship game.

              If 'Bama were to run the table, it might get very interesting. They will move up to #3 this week with VTech's loss, (unless Miami jumps them), and their computer rankings will go through the roof should they beat those teams to end the season.

              Texas appears to have the easiest road right now to the Rose Bowl, with only 5-4 Kansas, 5-4 Texas A&M, and a decent 7-2 Colorado team in the Big XII championship. USC should win out as well, but still has to go to Berkeley to play the #23 Bears, and has home games against a good Fresno St. team and a rivarly game against UCLA.

              Best guess: Alabama trips up and the BCS gets a clean #1 vs. #2 game with USC vs. Texas. But it USC (or Texas, the Big XII championship game has been a graveyard for favorites) and Alabama stumble, all hades breaks loose, as teams like Miami, Penn St, LSU, or Georgia might even entertain chances of slipping into Pasadena.

              Yesterday's action all but clinched a BCS bowl for Notre Dame as well. They will be in the top 12 of the BCS standings after this week, and will only have to win games that they will be huge favorites in to get the invite (Navy, Syracuse, Stanford).

                USC probably wishes UCLA had won because their game in a couple weeks means UCLA will have something to prove.

                  A slight surprise, one loss Miami jumped undefeated Alabama in the AP poll. It's really close though, 'Bama should retake #3 with a win over #5 LSU Saturday.

                    I think LSU is gonna win that game.

                      I saw that and couldn't believe it. Alabama should be number 3. Miami lost to FSU which has 2 losses.

                        I tend to agree, but that 'Bama D is nasty, and it is a home game for the Tide.

                          It's only by 2 points in the AP poll. Alabama will almost certainly finish ahead of the Canes in the final poll if they run the table as their finishing schedule is much tougher than Miami's.

                            LSU was roughed up by a tough non-conference Appalachian St. this weekend.

                              and a decent 7-2 Colorado team in the Big XII championship.
                              Their 2 losses are to the #2 and #3 teams in the country on the road, and they are ranked #22.

                              Notre Dame loses to #1 and to an now-unranked team at home, and is #7.

                              Florida State loses to two unranked teams and is #17.

                              The main things going against Colorado is they aren't a big-name program like ND or FSU, and they didn't start the year ranked so they have had much farther to climb.

                              Similar deal with Penn State and Miami. Why isn't it Penn State that jumped Alabama, they have more impressive wins than Miami and their loss looks about the same? Because Miami started the year ranked and PSU didn't.
                              Mirror, mirror, on the wall, who is the Keenest of them all?
