College Football: Week 14 Results

There was a limited schedule this week with many of the Top 25 teams having already completed their seasons. Of those who played, there were some excellent games but few shockers. (That is, few shockers unless you count some of the routs.)
Both Oregon (12-0) and Auburn (13-0) maintained their undefeated status and will most likely be 1-2 in the BCS standings. Expect them to be facing one another in Arizona for the National Championship.
Next week promises to be an even shorter schedule. In fact, only one game is on the schedule: THE GAME between Army (6-5) and Navy (8-3). With Air Force being 8-4, all three military academies qualify for post-season bowl action for the first time in a long time.
[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.]
