More NCAA: Charlie Weis needs a drink and a burger

(2) Notre Dame 21, (11) Michigan 47: Man, that just feels so good doesn't it? In South Bend no less. Notre Dame is obviously a dangerous team, but they got absolutely destroyed. They were overconfident, and they underperformed. Ugly combo. Matter of fact, Charlie, go ahead and order the cheese fries too. You've earned it. Michigan on the other hand played a damn-near perfect game.

(18) Oregon 34, (15) Oklahoma 33, No question that this was a shady finish. Two bad calls went against the Sooners late. You know what? Shouldn't matter. They still gave up two TDs in 22 seconds. They still let a sloppy Oregon team hang around long enough to fire up the crowd and make a move. They still let a game-winning kick get blocked. Credit Oregon for making plays late in the game. Big win for the PAC-10. Rough day for the officials.

(3) Auburn 7, (6) LSU 3, Vintage SEC. Two bruising defenses, and a wild finish. LSU will be thinking about those three extra yards for the rest of the season.

(12) Louisville 31, (17) Miami 7, The Canes are out of the Top 25 for the first time since 1999. I wonder who Larry Coker should fire next.

(20) TCU 12, (24) Texas Tech 3, You know, two seasons ago Texas Tech won this game 70-35. I'd say the Horned Frogs got a little revenge with this defensive performance. Solid win.

Finally, congrats to the entire Pac-10, who went 4-0 against the Big 12 this week. SC, UO, ASU, and the Cougs all beat flyover schools. But hey, how about those Huskies? A blocked extra point to beat Fresno State...that is a legit win for a program that hasn't had one in a while. Glad to see some inprovement from Willingham's boys.
