For several weeks, the top ten has more or less remained the same. That will change this week, as previously unbeaten Oklahoma and Wisconsin both took losses. While both Wisconsin and Oklahoma still control their own destinies in their respective conferences, their margin of error is now zero, and the rankings are going to start looking a bit different. Hopefully the craziness continues.
Games of Note
Boise didn't cover. Surely, the apocalypse is nigh. Air Force tried their hardest to follow the option team upset formula, as they controlled the ball for over 36 minutes, but it wasn't quite enough to overcome Boise's offensive firepower.
The biggest rap on Stanford is that they hadn't played anyone until this week. Don't let the score line of this game fool you, because Washington is a quality team. But good lord, Stanford is a cruel football killing machine. They host Oregon on November 12th. You may want to watch that.
This game is only here because of the hilarious scoreline. Man, Colorado is turrble.
Houston Nutt almost cost Arkansas a game, a skill Houston Nutt learned to do with great aplomb while at Arkansas. Ole Miss' freshmen are actually pretty good, but there's too much dead wood on that roster for them to really shine through.
WELL LOOK AT YOU, AL. The Hurricane defense held Tech to 211 yards of total offense, and only 134 rushing yards. That's how you beat a triple option team.
Return to Glory, right guys?
Syracuse came out and punched West Virginia in the face, and the Mountaineers couldn't recover. QB Ryan Nassib went 24-32 for 229 yards, four touchdowns and zero interceptions, and the Cuse offense didn't give WVU a chance to capitalize on short fields. This was a beatdown in every sense of the word.
