Ohio State Bye 9 0 Big 10 5 0 at Illinois

3 reasons the BCS (and rest of the country) does not like Ohio State - Land-Grant Holy Land
I know many Buckeye fans across the country are wondering what Ohio State needs to do to get out of the unfortunate spot of being the third wheel amongst college football's unbeaten. Back-to-back weeks of hardcore drubbings against Big Ten foes Penn State (63-14), and Purdue (56-0) have not done much to impress pollsters and certainly have had no effect on the computer polls that are so highly based on strength of schedule. The truth is, there is not much that the Buckeyes can do but hope for a lot of chaos to happen ahead of them in the rankings because there are some fundamental flaws in the BCS system, as well as the national perception, that is holding Ohio State back.

Baylor W 41-12 vs Oklahoma 8 0 Big 12 5 0 at Texas Tech

Sooner or Later: Baylor Overcomes Slow Start to Stuff Oklahoma, 41-12, now 8-0 - Our Daily Bears
There were 2 major questions about the 2013 Baylor Bears heading into the season. One regarded how effective first year starter Bryce Petty would be. Given his status as one of the highest rated quarterbacks in the country (by QBR), I think that has been adequately answered. The second revolved around the defense and whether they could continue the strides made in the second half of 2012. Tonight, we're not starting with Petty or the offense. We're starting with the unit that just held OU's offense to 10 points.

UConn L 31-10 vs Louisville 0 8 AAC 0 4 at SMU

Louisville vs. UConn final score: No. 20 Cardinals win ugly, beat UConn, 31-10 -
Louisville's offense was not sharp at all against the still-winless UConn Huskies, but the Cardinals' defense made enough big plays to propel Louisville to a 31-10 conference road win that was not in doubt beyond the second quarter.

The Game Tying Play » Eagle Totem Eagle Totem
I’ll post more pictures later but I just wanted to get one picture up. This is the play that tied the game for Eastern. Roback catches a pass from Brumfield. It was a pretty sweet play. Had all of us photographer types excited.

Miami L 45-3 vs BGSU 0 9 MAC 0 5 at Kent

Bowling Green Erupts For 45-3 Rout Of Miami - Hustle Belt
Unfortunately, those two drives ended with only three total points, and they ended in ways that summed up Miami's season very well. The first drive reached the BGSU 30, but on 3rd-and-6, quarterback Drew Kummer took a terrible sack that lost 14 yards and took Miami out of field goal range. The second possession went even further, to the Falcons' 26. On 3rd-and-1, Kummer took the snap and rolled left, but he dropped the ball and had to fall on it for a seven yard loss. Kaleb Patterson then kicked a 51-yard field goal.
