An utterly nondescript Saturday of college football, with the exception of Michigan's stunning 38-0 rout of Notre Dame. For those who've already penciled the Wolverines in as a no-brainer in the Sugar Bowl, remember that they must face Oregon (this week) and Iowa on the road, and Ohio State and Purdue at home, before they complete their season. Speaking of the Buckeyes, they escaped with yet another close shave at home, 44-38 [OT], this time to North Carolina St., and fell another spot in the rankings, while Florida St. rallied late to edge Georgia Tech, 14-13. The national title aspirations of Texas and Wisconsin ended with shock losses at home, to Arkansas and UNLV, respectively.
