The Buckeyes remain the top team in my Top 25 as they move to 7-0 with a win over Penn State, 38-10. The Urban Meyer train just keeps on chugging down the tracks...In other Big Ten news, Iowa might be the biggest challenger to the MSU-OSU tandem at the top. The Hawkeyes blasted Northwestern, 40-10 to stay unbeaten and climbing up the polls. But we all know the major story of Big Ten football this weekend was Michigan literally fumbling a sure win away from rival Michigan State. I don't even have to describe it. You've all seen it. If you haven't, Google it. Ouch.


LSU has become the top team in the SEC - even if just for now. They travel to Alabama on November 7th, so the Tide may reclaim the throne then. But for now, a big win over Florida has the Tigers undefeated and the highest ranked SEC team...Ole Miss - a playoff contender just a couple of weeks ago - has now suffered a second loss. This time a convincing L to Memphis. 


In the ACC, it was a pretty quiet weekend. Clemson defeated Boston College 34-17 as the nationally top-rated Eagles defense gave up more yardage in the first quarter than they have averaged for entire games this fall. Florida State defeated Louisville 41-23 and the ACC has two undefeated teams as we head into the season's second half. Duke (#23) and Pitt (#25) have cracked the AP top 25...


Utah remains the team to beat in the Pac-12. The Utes stayed unbeaten by beating Arizona State, 34-18. Utah will travel to LA next to take on USC, who lost to Notre Dame on the road this past Saturday. The South division is looking awfully good for Utah, and their likely opponent from the North would be Cal or Stanford.


The Big-12 looks to be a 4-horse race to the end: Baylor, TCU, Oklahoma and Oklahoma State are all in good shape and they all play each other in the next 6 weeks....Should be interesting!
