All in all, it was a great day for the Pac-10, and a horrible day for the Big-12, as two of the top schools in that conference were absolutely embarassed. It looks like Penn State might be back, considering the manner in which they destroyed Nebraska, 40-7(no doubt, the loss will probably boost the Huskers BCS rankings). Same goes for USC, which pounded Colorado, in Boulder, 40-3. And how about the Golden Bears, going 3-0 for the first time in six years after going to East Lansing and smoking the Spartans, 46-22...too bad they're on probation. Ohio State powered their way to victory with a strong second half effort to beat Wazzou, 25-7(btw, the only Pac-10 school to lose; this year, the conference as a whole has lost only four games, three of which were at schools ranked in the Top 10), while their archrivals choked at South Bend, 25-23. In games of interest to my colleague, JB, the Cyclones of Iowa State, led by Heisman hopeful Seneca Wallace's 361 passing yards, came back to beat cross-state rival Iowa, 36-31, while Jared Lorenzen threw three touchdown passes in Kentucky's 27-17 win over Indiana.
