Week 11 Notes:

Alabama Replaces Oregon as top-ranked team

The biggest change to the Top 25 rankings occurred on Thursday night, when Oregon, which had been ranked #1 by Downtown Magazine all season long, fell to their arch-nemesis, Stanford, for the second straight year, dashing all hopes for the Ducks to compete for a national championship.

Stanford took an early lead in the game, holding off Oregon late, for a 26-20 victory. The result dropped the Ducks from their #1 perch down to #7 in the new rankings.

Stanford, which suffered a 27-21 setback at Utah in week seven, has won three striaght over ranked opponents (UCLA, Oregon State, Oregon) and is installed at #5 this week, though they face a stern test next week when they travel to play USC, winners of four straight after a checkered, 4-3, beginning. The 7-3 Trojans returned to the rankings by virtue of their 62-28 demolition of Cal this past Saturday. They are #25 this week and will either move up or move out, depending on the result of their game against the Cardinal.

Due to Oregon relinquishing the top spot, Alabama took over the #1 ranking, a position many (including the major polls and BCS) thought the Crimson Tide were deserving of, especially after Saturday's 38-17 victory over LSU.

Filling in the top five, between Alabama and Stanford, are #2 Ohio State, #3 Florida State and #4 Baylor.

The 9-0 Buckeyes were idle, last seen at Purdue, manhandling the Boilermakers, 56-0. Next up for Ohio State a road encounter with Illinois, Saturday, November 16.

Florida State, also 9-0, got off the field early with a 59-3 win at Wake Forest in a game that began at noon ET. The Seminoles captured the ACC Atlantic division with the win, by virtue of their victory over Clemson in week seven, a 7-0 record in the conference and one remaining ACC game, against Syracuse, this Saturday. Florida State will be heading to the ACC championship game the first week of December, facing the winner of the Coastal division, as yet undetermined, though Georgia Tech and Virginia Tech appear to have the best shots.

#4 Baylor improved to 8-0 with a stinging, 41-12 win over Oklahoma. The Bears still have work to do, with Texas Tech, Oklahoma State and Texas on their schedule, but they are now in a position to go undefeated and possibly argue for a position in the national championship game.

Possibly the biggest surprise of the college football season has been Michigan State, the 8-1 Spartans now occupying the #6 spot in the rankings. With their only loss occurring in a 17-13 defeat at Notre Dame, September 21, the Spartans have reeled off five straight and lead the Big Ten Legends division. Idle this week past, Michigan State can claim the division title with a win at Nebraska this Saturday.

Fresno State and Northern Illinois are #8 and 9, respectively. Clemson took over the final spot in the top ten, even though the Tigers were idle this week. They play next against Georgia Tech, on Thursday night this week.

UCF, Auburn, Missouri, Louisville, Texas and Wisconsin were all winners and took the 11-16 positions in this week's rankings.

The bottom of the rankings ladder saw the most movement, as #17 Oklahoma, #18 Miami, #19 BYU, #23 Michigan, and #25 Texas Tech all fell. Of that group, only the Sooners were able to remain ranked. Miami lost to Virginia Tech badly, BYU was topped by Wisconsin, Michigan lost to Nebraska and Texas Tech was dismantled by Kansas State. Taking over some of those spots were UCLA, Nebraska, Arizona State, Virginia Tech and USC, the last two the only ranked teams with three losses, at 8-3 and 7-3, respectively.

The Downtown Magazine rankings are almost in sync - for a change - with the BCS, though BCS has Florida State at #2 instead of Ohio State. Though the Buckeyes have the nation's longest winning streak at 21 games, they may not garner enough support in the BCS for a national title shot, especially if Alabama and Florida State continue on their unbeaten tracks.

The Buckeyes and Baylor Bears very well may meet in what would be a playoff game for second place if matched up in a BCS bowl game, though the liklihood is that Ohio State would play Stanford in the Rose Bowl, which also might be a game for second place.

That kind of outcome will hopefully be eliminated next season as the BCS moves to a juried four-game playoff system, leaving a little less to the imagination in determining a national collegiate champion.
