College Football 2011, Week 10 results

Week 10 Results

Upsets. Several of them. Among the Top 10 we had #9 Nebraska falling 28-25 to unranked Northwestern. Then #13 Michigan lost to unranked Iowa, 24-16. Then #20 Arizona State lost to UCLA 29-28. And, finally, #24 West Virginia lost to Louisville 38-35

Although several Top 25 teams lost to higher ranked ranked teams, only one (Alabama) lost its undefeated status as a result—which leaves 5 teams without a loss.
