From the AP via ESPN:

Crabtree, No. 7 Red Raiders knock off top-ranked Longhorns in Lubbock

It was as risky a pass as Graham Harrell has ever thrown. Also the most important.

With the final seconds ticking off and Texas Tech trailing by a point, the Texas Tech quarterback saw Michael Crabtree in double coverage and let if fly. The All-American wide receiver snagged it on the sideline, shook off a defender and ducked into the end zone with one second left.

With that stunning 28-yard touchdown, the No. 7 Red Raiders turned near-heartbreak into a wild victory, 39-33 against No. 1 Texas.

Texas Tech showed its tops in the Lone Star State -- and maybe even the best team in the land.

You know, I don't really have anything to say about this other than, "Ah, shit." At least we didn't fall too far in the AP rankings; number five isn't so bad, right?


And again from the AP via ESPN:

LSU rolls after scoring two quick TDs late in second quarter

LSU did little to scare former coach Nick Saban and Alabama in a sluggish performance against in-state rival Tulane.

With the Tigers coming off a disheartening loss to Georgia, coach Les Miles was looking for four quarters of intensity against the Green Wave. He settled for a few minutes of dominance as No. 19 LSU won 35-10 on Saturday night.

And all I have to say about this one is "Ho hum." Beat 'Bama next weekend and I'll be impressed., it's tough being a college football fan with high expectations for your two teams.
