Week 7 Notes:

Eight of Top 25 Take Losses

What would turn into a wild weekend within Downtown Magazine's Top 25 rankings began with the decimation Thursday night of UCLA by arch-rival Stanford, the Cardinal putting it on the Bruins to the tune of a 56-35 walloping.

#15 entering week 7, UCLA dropped completely out of the rankings, along with Kentucky, Northwestern, and Boise State, ranked 19, 20 and 25, respectively, the previous week. Northwestern ran into a buzzsaw called Iowa, now 7-0 and ranked #10, the surprise of the Big Ten conference.

The Hawkeyes dismantled the Wildcats, 40-10, handing Northwestern their second straight loss (Michigan).

Kentucky was unlucky on Thursday as well, their rally coming up short at home to Auburn, 30-27. Both teams now share identical 4-2 records.

Boise State waited until Friday night to become the next victim, being doubled up at Utah State, 52-26. The Aggies are now 4-2 overall and 3-0 in the Mountain West, having won three straight after taking back-to-back losses to Utah and Washington, both out of conference.

On Saturday, Texas A&M fell to a familiar foe, at Alabama, where the Crimson Tide rolled over them, 41-23. The Aggies drop from #7 all the way down to #14, while 6-1 Alabama moved up one notch, from #9 to #8.

Another SEC team, Ole Miss, took an unexpected turn for the worse at Memphis, from the largely-ignored American Athletic conference. The Tigers put a hurting on the visiting Rebels, 37-24, and vaulted all the way to #17. Joining Memphis from the American Athletic are Houston (#21) and Temple (25). All three are undefeated, at 6-0.

From the Mid-American conference, Toledo moved into the rankings after whipping Eastern Michigan, 63-20. The Rockets are dominating the conference and have two solid wins outside, over Arkansas and Iowa State.

Two of the most interesting match-ups from week seven were Michigan State at Michigan and Florida at LSU. Both games turned out to be as exciting as advertised, though the MSU-Michigan game turned into one for the ages when the Wolverines fumbled away a victory trying to get a punt off with 10 seconds left in the game, leading to a winning TD by the Spartans, who remain #3.

LSU kept their unbeaten season intact and moved up to #9, though beating the Gators was anything but routine. The Tigers won at home, 35-28, but the two could possibly meet later, in the SEC championship. Both teams are atop their respective divisions by one game. The Gators dropped from #11 to #19.

#1 Ohio State put on a show in formerly-Happy Valley, shutting down Penn State, 38-10. The Buckeyes haven't looked exactly like national champions until this past week, and, with the win, seem to be putting it all together at the right time.

#2 TCU got to 7-0 by virtue of a 45-21 win at Iowa State. Also from the Big 12, #4 Baylor scored 60 or more points for the fifth straight week, blowing out West Virginia, 62-38. The only time this season the 6-0 Bears didn't score 60 or more was week one, when they hammered SMU, 56-21.

Clemson, Florida State and Utah all won, and are ranked 5, 6, and 8, respectively.

Notre Dame put the kibosh on USC, scoring the final 17 points of the game for a 41-31 victory. The Fighting Irish hang close at #12.
