They’re a bit like circling buzzards. The one-loss teams are hanging around the fringe, waiting and hoping for something bad to happen to the four undefeated teams at the front of the BCS line.
10. Nebraska (8-1): The Cornhuskers played Iowa State without quarterback Taylor Martinez and were lucky to come out alive in their 31-30 overtime win.
Michigan State at Iowa is the best game of the weekend. It’s clear that the Big 10 is the finest conference in the nation and here we are with another classic showdown.
10. Ohio State (7-1): Unfortunately, Ohio State will need for a million things to go their way for them to accomplish the goals they had coming into the season.
Number 1 has now lost three weeks in a row. This time around it was the top ranked BCS team Oklahoma dropping a prime time inter-conference game to rival Missouri.
Auburn jumped two spots to No. 3 behind top-ranked Oregon and Boise State in the media poll Sunday, and Missouri vaulted 11 spots to No. 7.
When the first official BCS rankings were released Sunday the Sooners took the top spot. Their prize is a trip to Missouri to take on the defensive-minded Tigers.
National champion Duke and fellow Final Four participant Michigan State are among the 28 teams on Madison Square Garden’s 2010-11 men’s college basketball schedule.
10. Utah (6-0): It’s just not the record that impresses me – because they don’t play the best of competition – it’s the team, and the way they play on both sides of the ball.
10. Michigan State (6-0): The Spartans are another team that made a huge statement on Saturday with their convincing win over rival Michigan at the Big House.
I realize anything can happen in an SEC game. But I never thought there was any way Alabama would actually lose to South Carolina.
The Tide travel to Columbia to take on their third straight ranked SEC team. They passed the first two tests with flying colors. This week against the Gamecocks could be the ugliest of them all.
We headed into the weekend with a plethora of marquee matchups, but very few of them actually lived up to the hype. However, despite the lack of drama, we saw some big statements made.
We are entering the best Saturday of the season to date. The headliner is #7 Florida visiting Tuscaloosa to take on #1 Alabama.
I figured we were in for a ho-hum Saturday, but boy was I wrong. Despite the lack of buzz going in, we were witness to the best day of the college football season so far.
