Baylor spanks KSU so #1 is out and should drop out of the top 5 because of the blow-out by a 5-5 football team. KSU takes on Texas next Sat...depending on which Texas team shows up, the Big 12 Title could go to Oklahoma.
#2 Oregon gets beat by a 2 loss Stanford team...but the score is deceiving...Stanford had 3 turn overs while driving on the Ducks near the red zone...Stanford owned time of possession and yardage stats as well. Oregon still has to play Ore St so they may not escape Corvallis with a W. So Standford and UCLA may get to play each other 2 weeks in a row...yes, you heard me right. UCLA beat USC today, so they are the PAC 12 South rep in the Championship game. Stanford now has the lead in the PAC 12 North. A win next Saturday and no matter what Oregon does, Stanford goes to the title. Stanford closes out PAC 12 play next Sat against...you guessed it...UCLA.
#3 Notre Dame is the worst of the remaining unbeatens and by default goes to #1 for a week. They needed the refs to hand them the Stanford game. Struggled with BYU, Purdue, Pitt, BC, Michigan...with only 2 of those teams having a winning records (BYU could end up being 6-6)...and one of which got its doors blown off by Bammer. Notre Dame will stumble next Saturday at USC and Bammer will be at #1 and back in control of their destiny.
