--- Week 9 Notes below ---

Looking for the best NFL Handicapper? Good luck. Most of them suck.

Week 9 Notes:

Eight of the Top 25 tasted defeat during Week 9 of college play, beginning with #7 Clemson, a 31-17 loser to Georgia Tech, #9 Kansas State, dropping a 58-17 decision to Oklahoma (moved up from #16 last week to #12 currently) and #11 Michigan State, losing out to Nebraska, 24-3.

Further down #15 Wisconsin inexplicably lost at Ohio State, 33-29, #18 USC was outlasted in triple overtime by #1 Stanford, 56-48, and #20 Texas A&M was overthrown by Missouri, 38-31 in overtime, making the Aggies 5-3 and temporarily out of the rankings, along with #22 Texas Tech and #23 Syracuse, both suffering their third losses of the season.

At the top, Stanford survived their encounter with the Trojans of USC, eventually prevailing by a 56-48 score, while #2 LSU, #3 Alabama and #4 Boise State all had the week off.

#5 Oklahoma State (8-0) continues to sport one of the strongest cases for inclusion in the national championship picture, winning convincingly this weekend over Baylor, 59-24. The Cowboys still have work to do, however, with Kansas State visiting this weekend (Nov. 5), then a pair of road dates at Texas Tech and Iowa State before ending the regular season at home against Oklahoma.

Oregon, now ranked #6, has rebounded, after losing their initial game of the season to LSU, winning eight straight and headed for a showdown with Stanford on the road, November 12.

Rounding out the top 10 are undefeated Houston, moved up to #7, now 8-0, after punishing Rice, 73-34 on Thursday. The #8, 9 and 10 spots are occupied by Arkansas, Nebraska and South Carolina, all posting wins over the weekend.

Back into the mix further down are #21 Georgia Tech, after a one week absense, buoyed by their win over Clemson. and West Virginia, also out for one week, but reinstated at #25, after beating Rutgers, 31-21, right behind fellow Big East competitor, Cincinnati, which has run its record to 6-1 and may be one of the more underrated programs in the country. The Bearcats had the weekend off and still have five conference games remaining, including contests against main contenders for the Big East title, West Virginia, Rutgers and Syracuse.

Arriving in the rankings at #20 is 7-1 Southern Miss, an easy 31-13 winner at UTEP. The Golden Eagles have but one loss, a September 26, 26-20 loss at Marshall. If Southern Miss continues along their path of excellence, they will likely face Houston in the Conference-USA chmpionship the first weekend of December.

Special kudos to Penn State's players for bringing home win #409 for head coach Joe Paterno, pushing him ahead of Grambling's Eddie Robinson to become the all-time wins leader in NCAA Division 1 history. The Nittany Lions fought back at home against Illinois, scoring the go-ahead touchdown with 1:08 left to play. The Illini had a 42-yard field goal attempt hit the right upright as time expired, sealing the 10-7 victory. Penn State is now 8-1 and in the hunt for the Big Ten title, with games remaining against Nebraska, Ohio State and Wisconsin still remaining.
