What a weekend! #1 Alabama lost to #19 South Carolina, #12 LSU squeeked by #14 Florida, #13 Miami (Fla.) got chewed up and spit out by #24 Florida State, and #17 Michigan State rolled over #18 Michigan. Number 9 Arizona got upset by the Oregon State Beavers, # 6 Auburn barely escaped against the Kentucky Wildcats, and #16 Stanford needed a last second field goal themselves to defeat USC.
Bound to be a whole lot of shaking goin’ on in the polls this week!
[The three numbers for the rankings are from the AP Top 25, The Harris Coaches’ Poll, and An “NR” means that that particular poll did Not Rank the team.]

1/1/1 Alabama (5-1) In what can only be described as a major upset, the Crimson Tide lost to the #19 South Carolina Gamecocks (4-1) by a score of 35-21 snapping Alabama’s 19-game winning streak. Stephen Garcia completed 17 of 20 passes for 201 yards and 3 TDs while Marcus Lattimore ran for 93 yards and 2 TDs and caught one of those passes from Garcia for a third. Greg McElroy completed 27 of 34 for 315 yards and 2 TDs for the losing Crimson Tide.

4/4/4 Boise State (5-0) The Broncos romped over the Toledo Rockets (3-3) 57-14. With the help of a defense that forced 5 turnovers, the Broncos made mincemeat of Toledo.

8/8/8 Auburn (6-0) The Tigers edged the Kentucky Wildcats (3-3) 37-34 on a field goal as the game clock ran out. And it was all Cam Newton for the Tigers. Newton rushed for 198 yards and 4 TDs while also completing 13 of 21 passes for 210 yards. Most importantly, after Kentucky had tied the game at 34 all with 7:31 on the game clock, Newton lead the Tigers down the field on the ground.

10/10/9 Utah (5-0) The Utes scored 31 points in the second quarter as they rolled over the Iowa State Cyclones (3-3) 68-27. It wouldn’t have been this close if two early Utah turnovers hadn’t lead to Cyclone TDs in the first quarter. Jordan Wynn completed 23 of 31 passes for 325 yards and 2 TDs as Utah amassed 593 yards of net offense.

12/9/13 LSU (6-0) The Tigers edged the #14 Florida Gators (4-2) 33-29 in a come-from-behind, fake-field-goal sorta way. They might want to add Mallox to the LSU dinning room table. Jordan Jefferson ran for 2 TDs and Terrence Toliver scored twice on Jarret Lee passes for the Tigers.

13/14/17 Miami (Fla.) (3-2) The Hurricane were upset by the #24 Florida State Seminoles (5-1) 45-17. Jermaine Thomas scored 3 TDs (one on a pass, two on the ground) in the first half and Chris Thompson capped the Seminole scoring on a 90 yard run from scrimmage in the fourth quarter.

16/18/19 Stanford (5-1) The Cardinal edged the Southern California Trojans (4-2) 37-35 on a 30-yard Nate Whitaker field goal on the final play of the game. This is the second consecutive game USC has lost on field goals as the clock expires. Last week it was 32-31 to Washington. Talk about bad luck.

22/21/22 Oklahoma State (5-0) The Cowboys beat the Ragin’ Cajuns: Louisiana-Lafayette (2-3) 54-28 despite trailing at the half 21-17 when the Cajuns scored 21 points in the second quarter on a combination of offense and defensive scores. It must have woken up the Cowboys who put together their own offense-defense-offense scores in the third quarter and tacked on a field goal for good measure in posting 24 points in the third and another 13 in the fourth. Brandon Weeden completed 29 of 47 passes for 351 yards and 5 TDs for OK State.

23/24/23 Florida State (5-1) The Seminoles beat the #13 Miami (Fla.) Hurricane (3-2) 45-17.
