From the AP via ESPN:

Iowa State scores upset after forcing four Garrett Gilbert turnovers

At this rate, underdogs are going to love playing at Texas: the bigger the dog, the bigger the win.

Iowa State became the latest to drop a shocking home loss on the Longhorns (No. 19 BCS, No. 22 AP) with a 28-21 victory Saturday in a remarkable turnaround for a Cyclones team that had given up 120 points the previous two games.


Again from the AP via ESPN:

Cam Newton sets SEC, team records, leads Auburn to win

Cam Newton and Auburn (No. 4 BCS, No. 5 AP) are the last unbeaten team in the SEC. Not even LSU's defense could slow them down.

With Newton's standard mix of power and elusiveness, a huge play from Onterio McCalebb and a stingy performance from Nick Fairley and the defense, Auburn survived for a 24-17 victory over No. 6 LSU on Saturday.


Y'know...I don't really want to talk about this.

Okay, I'll say one thing. The Baylor Bears are now ranked in the AP top 25. And the Longhorns aren't. This is sick. Just sick. Someone please remind me why I'm a football fan. Well, here's one reason. Still, I'm now in that rare and horrible but familiar enough place in which the Longhorn nation finds itself from time to time: measuring a season's success by whether or not we beat the Aggies. If it all comes down to that, well, you already know you're having an awful season.

Okay, that's enough. I'm going to try to think about something more uplifting. Like politics. Or car crashes.
