Week 12 Notes:

Cementing their hold on the #1 spot, Boise State walloped WAC rival Fresno State, 51-0 Friday night, improving their record to 10-0 and extending the nation's longest winning streak to 24 games. While Downtown Magazine has kept the Bronco's at the top of the heap since Alabama's demise in week six, the BCS is still not getting the message, keeping Boise State at #4 in their most recent poll, released Sunday night, even though the three teams ahead of them - TCU, Auburn and Oregon - were idle.

Both of the other major polls - the AP Top 25 and USA Today - have Boise at #3, with enough first place votes to raise a few BCS eyebrows. The Broncos received 10 first place votes in the AP, and 5 in the USA Today poll.

Boise State plays at 10-1 Nevada Friday, so perhaps the outcome of that contest may provoke the dysfunctional BCS to make a move. It's obvious that the BCS has been praying for either Boise or TCU to lose a game, so as not to damage the reputation of the "Big Six" conferences, a laughable argument since the Big East is included in that mix.

Elsewhere, the biggest hit in the rankings affected Nebraska, which fell all the way from #8 last week, to #21 this week after their 9-6 loss at Texas A&M. The fall by the Cornhuskers was primarily the cause of injuries to QB Taylor Martinez, who played most of the game hobbling around on an injured left ankle. His mobility impaired, Nebraska could not move the ball, though credit must be given to the A&M defense and to that of the Cornhuskers, who fought on valiantly, knowing that the offense was impaired.

From #1 though #20, therefore were either winners or idle. Along with #2, 3 and 4, #20 Arizona was the only other team with the week off. #5 Stanford and #6 Wisconsin romped over Cal and Michigan respectively. #8 LSU had to rally lat to defeat a determined Mississippi squad, 43-36; so too, #7 Ohio State, as the Buckeyes got a late TD to send Iowa to their 4th loss of the season, 20-17.

#9 Virginia Tech has become one of the teams nobody wished to play, winning their 9th in a row after starting the season 0-2. Two fourth quarter touchdowns got them past Miami, 31-17, dropping the Hurricanes to 7-4 and out of the running for the ACC Coastal Division, which was wrapped up by the Hokies.

Elsewhere in the ACC, the Atlantic Division may end up in the hands of #17 North Carolina State Wolfpack, who topped in-state rival North Carolina, 29-25. All NC State has to do is win at Maryland this weekend to earn the right to play Virginia Tech in the ACC championship game. #18 Florida State kept the race close with a 30-16 win over the Terrapins.

Utah moved up from #25 to #22, with a win over San Diego State, after dropping consecutive games to TCU and Notre Dame. Making the list for the first time, Navy comes in at #24 and MAC powerhouse Northern Illinois debuts at #25.

The Big East and Conference-USA continue to be unrepresented in the Top 25.
