Week 13 Notes:

In the penultimate week before the end of the regular college football season, carnage ensued atop the rankings, as Boise State's 25-game winning streak - the nation's longest - was suddenly snapped by Nevada, though the Broncos were more the victims of their own place-kicker's misfortune than they were of Nevada's explosive offense.

In Friday night's finale - following thrilling comeback wins by Auburn and Oregon - Boise State allowed the game tying touchdown by Nevada with a mere 12 seconds left to play, hardly enough time to mount a game-winning drive. But, after the kickoff return, Boise QB Kellen Moore hit Titus Young deep down the middle, the receiver making a diving grab at the nine-yard line. After using their final time out, kicker Kyle Brotzman lined up for the game-winning field goal from 26 yards out.

He sailed it off to the right, missing just barely and sending the game into overtime. On their possession, Boise State could not find the end zone, and again, Brotzman lined up for a short field goal, which he shanked to the left. Colin Kaepernick, who brought the Wolf Pack back from a 24-7 half time deficit to tie the game at 31-all, maneuvered Nevada for Anthony Martinez' game-winner from 34 yards out, which he nailed right down the middle.

Just like that, Boise State's quest for a national championship, a Rose Bowl and maybe the WAC championship went up in smoke. Currently, Hawaii leads the conference with a 7-1 record, their only loss to Boise State. They and Nevada are tied at 6-1, each with a game remaining. If the Wolf Pack and Broncos each win - and they should - the three will share the conference championship, with the Bowl Placement Committee having the final say. Nevada's only conference loss was, remarkably, at Hawaii.

Five other teams suffered losses. Alabama lost by a point to Auburn, after blowing a 24-0 lead. LSU suffered its second loss of the season, losing to Arkansas, 31-23. Arizona was dealt its fourth loss of the season by Oregon, which overtook LSU and Auburn as the new #1 in the rankings. North Carolina State blew their opportunity to win the Atlantic division of the ACC, losing to Maryland, 38-31, and Oklahoma downed Oklahoma State, 47-41.

Thus, a reshuffling as teams prepare for conference championships and upcoming bowl selections. In the ACC, Virginia Tech will face Florida State. The Big 12 features Nebraska versus Oklahoma. In the SEC, Auburn faces South Carolina.

Conference-USA pits SMU against UCF and the Mid-American has Northern Illinois facing Miami of Ohio. The Big Ten, PAC-10, Mountain West, WAC and Big East do not have conference championship games. In the Big East, Connecticut, who lost to Rutgers and Louisville, can capture the title with a win at South Florida, since they beat both West Virginia and Pittsburgh. The Mountaineers handed the Panthers their second loss of the season this past Friday, with a 35-10 no-doubter. Pitt travels to Cincinnati, while West Virginia hosts Rutgers. If The Mountaineers win and UConn loses, West Virginia would win the conference and a BCS bid, which goes to the top team in the Big East.

Pittsburgh would need to win and have both the Huskies and Mountaineers lose.

In the top spots, an untenable condition as Oregon clearly deserves the #1 ranking, but there is no separation between Auburn and TCU. They are tied at #2, with Wisconsin at #4 and Stanford #5.
