Week 10 Notes:

The tenth week of the college football season saw eight teams dropped from the ranks of the Top 25. Five of the eight - Alabama, Utah, Arizona, South Carolina and Baylor - went down to defeat at the hands of other ranked opponents, the most surprising being Alabama's second loss of the season, a 24-21 loss at LSU.

The remainder were more or less expected, though the overpowering 47-7 win by TCU over Utah opened some eyes but didn't change the rankings in the controversial BCS where TCU remained mired in third place behind Oregon and Auburn.

The Horned Frogs have decimated the Mountain West, giving up only 25 points over six conference games. They, along with Boise State, which improved to 8-0 with a fairly dominant win of their own, beating Hawaii, 42-7, remain on the outside looking in, as long as Oregon and Auburn continue their winning ways.

Boise State's win over Hawaii should not be taken lightly. The Warriors were 7-2 before traveling to Boise, including six straight wins. Boise State's victory was decisive. We have to go back a long way to find the last time the Broncos lost a game. Recalling that they beat TCU, 17-10, in last season's Fiesta Bowl.

Same coaches, similar teams, means Boise State remains #1 in the Downtown magazine rankings.

Of the three teams which fell to unranked opponents, two were from the Big 12. Oklahoma fell to Texas A&M, while Missouri, which made it's way up the ladder without a hitch, has since lost 2 of its last three, the most recent a 24-17 loss at Texas Tech, after they had led the Red Raiders, 17-3. These Tigers are quickly becoming irrelevant, as is Baylor, losers by a whopping 55-28 score at Oklahoma State.

The Big 12 now appears to be set up for a showdown in the championship game between Nebraska from the North Division and Oklahoma State from the South.

Oregon and Auburn won easily. The Ducks pounded Washington, 53-16, while Auburn walked over Chattanooga, 62-24. The Tigers have just two games left in their regular season schedule, the first next Saturday against Georgia, then, after a week off the traditional rivalry game at Alabama. Unless Auburn loses to Georgia, they are a lock for the SEC championship game, now that the Crimson Tide already has two conference losses.

The opponent for Auburn in the title match will be decided this coming Saturday, when the South Carolina Gamecocks travel to the Swamp to play Florida. Both are 4-3 in the conference; the winner will advance to the championship game.

Since the PAC-10 has no championship game, the Ducks just need to win out, though they'll be tested. Their final three opponents are Cal, Arizona and Oregon State, with all but the Arizona game on the road. Oregon and Auburn remain at #3 and #4, respectively, in our rankings.

Finally, we tip our hat to Joe Paterno and Penn State, back in the rankings at #24 after coming back from a three-touchdown deficit to defeat Northwestern, 35-21, giving Paterno his 400th win. Congratulations to Joe and his gutsy players.
