Notes since last week:

  • Alabama was upset at South Carolina. I got the sense that this was a game were everything went right for South Carolina; I don’t think the Gamecocks are really that good, but — as Les Miles knows — it’s better to be lucky than good. Speaking of which, LSU beat Florida to remain undefeated.
  • Michigan State really did a number on Michigan in The Big House. The final score was 34-17, but the game didn’t really seem that close.
  • A bunch of teams on the edge of the top 25 lost. Arizona lost a close one to Oregon State. Penn State lost badly, at home, to Illinois. In a possible preview of the conference championship, Temple lost a MAC showdown to Northern Illinois, and the Huskies are now my pick in the MAC (as they were before the season started). Northwestern lost by 3 to Purdue. Southern Mississippi lost a close game to East Carolina.
