  • The only changes to the top 8 was (formerly #8 seed) Southern California dropping out of the polls completely to be replaced by the Pittsburg Panthers. Apparently an overtime win over the-team-which-cannot-be-defeated-which-has-now-been-doubly-defeated for Ohio State last week wasn't as impressive as the Panthers survival narrow victory win beatdown!!!! of Notre Dame. Iowa only dropped 3 seeding spots after the loss. Dang expectations, and living up to them!
  • #10 Oregon is only up 2 spots after an easy win over Arizona State. Next week's game against Arizona is big, if the 'Cats win out, they will be the Pac-10 champion. That's easier said than done, the Wildcats have to win home against Oregon and at USC, as well as a trip to Sun Devil Stadium.
  • Virginia Tech replaced formerly #13 Miami Hurricanes this week in the "last team in" spot, Penn State and LSU were both overlooked for the "only two teams per conference" rule. I really don't get how the ACC has two teams here, for that matter. Really, I'm somewhat surprised that the Pac-10 doesn't have two in there.
  • If Nevada defeats Boise State on November 17th, they would seal up a spot in the system. That game is, now, the "conference championship" of the WAC. Nevada is 7-3 (6-0). Man, though, it's a shame a playoff system would mean that each game doesn't matter -- tell that to Houston, Southern California, and Miami who all dropped out of the playoffs. Oh, and Temple is also undefeated in the MAC, so they could squeak in here.
