Notes since last week:

  • Oklahoma lost at Missouri, 36-27.
  • Iowa lost to Wisconsin, 31-30, and the game was every big as close as the score suggests.
  • LSU lost at Auburn, 24-17, though the game wasn’t as close as the score suggests.
  • Texas lost at home, 28-21, to Iowa State. Iowa State!
  • Oklahoma State lost 51-41 to Nebraska, a game I expected them to lose by a larger margin.
  • West Virginia lost 14-19 to Syracuse.

Ranking notes:

  • All undefeated teams are ranked; the lowest is Missouri (12). There is only one remaining regular-season game between unbeaten teams (November 6, TCU at Utah), so it’s possible that we might go into the post-season with six undefeated teams, and, depending on bowl matchups, end up with 2-4 undefeated teams. I’m not saying it’s likely, but it’s a clear possibility.
  • The highest-ranked one-loss team continues to be Alabama (4). The only unranked one-loss team this week is Nevada.
  • The highest-ranked two-loss team this week is Iowa, who lost a very close game to Wisconsin.
