Some Thoughts on Week Three......

Southern California is real good, Norm Chow was not missed in the 53 point pasting put on SEC Arkansas. Arizona State is proving to be a serious challenger for the Trojans come October 1 after taking care of a decent Northwestern team with ease. Oregon had a good win over Fresno State, but their defense was shredded by the Bulldogs. USC comes to Autzen this week, the Ducks did not look too impressive to worry the Trojans. UCLA is slowing becoming the team that every Bruin fan has been expecting. Oklahoma did not have a prayer in the 41-24 loss to UCLA. Stanford, I wont' indulge.

Texas continues to roll whipping Rice, while Texas A&M look to have rebounded in a 66-9 win over SMU. Baylor is an amazing 3-0, imagine a Independence Bowl with the Bears against Vanderbilt who is 3-0 for the first time since 1956, after beating Ole Miss.

Speaking of the SEC, Tennessee decided to pass on Florida and lost 16-7. Florida did not look impressive, and Chris Leak might loose out to true frosh Josh Portis if he continues to be apprehensive running the ball. Alabama broke out of its shell and had no problem with South Carolina.

Michigan State might be the best team in the Big Ten, well at least the offense is. The defense better step after not being able to preserve a 21 point lead letting the Irish force the game into overtime. Michigan State's 44-41 win at South Bend might be the most impressive win in the nation thus far in the season. Michigan beat up on E. Michigan, and Ohio State looked a step slow in its win over San Diego State. Purdue beat Arizona, but must look impressive against a good Minnesota team this week.

Florida State beat Boston College on the road, 28-17. The Seminoles are just starting to get rolling, and could be unbeaten in the season finale against Florida. Miami and Clemson played a classic in Death Valley. Georgia Tech continues to look unimpressive after its big season opening win at Auburn. Virginia Tech smothered upstart Ohio 45-0.

Louisville saved the Big East with its blowout of Oregon State. Pitt is facing the reality of a losing season, after falling at Nebraska. Pitt has no offense, and Wannedstedt has to come out of this season with at least six wins a bowl berth.

UTEP, Toledo, and New Mexico are the only non-BCS teams with a legitimate chance to still run the table.
