What a week for college football and SEC. Leaving Mississippi State top to bottom they are the strongest conference in the nation. That is why year in year out they don't have undefeated teams like Pac 10 or Big 12. There was a major shake up. My Arkansas Hogs upset the then #2 Auburn Tigers 27-10 on the road. Florida (5) spanked LSU (6) and moved up to #2 in the AP poll. The Long Horns beat the Sooners at cotton bowl. USC barely made it second week in a row against Washington. Florida State kept the losing streak alive at NC State. Tennessee hunged 50+ points against the previously undefeated Georgia on the road (impressive). This was the second time in the school history for the bull dogs that an opponent has scored over 50 and coming into this game their defense was #2 in the nation and the stingiest overall. Oregon got exposed by Cal. That should put a smile on Bob Stoops even after a Texas loss.

Louisville, W Virginia, Clemson, Nabraska, Michigan, Notre Dame, Boise St., Missouri, Ga Tech, Iowa won their respective game. I feel for West Virginia. They won big still dropped from #4 to #5. Michigan toppled them, grrrr.

Next week there aren't that many significant games but some of them are very important in the ranking departments.

Current #2 Florida visiting the former #2 Auburn (11).
#4 Michigan visiting Joe Pa and Nitty Lions.
Cal (10) visiting Washinton State.
Ohio State (1) will be at Michigan State.
Missouri (19) on the road to Texas A & M. Francioni is in hot waters.
Minnesota visiting Wisconsin (25).
Nabraska (21) going on th eroad at Kansas State.
Va Tech (22) visiting Boston College.
UCLA going to Oregon (18).
