Week 9 Notes:

Eleven teams entered college football's ninth week without a loss, but as of Saturday night, five of them had suffered defeat.

Florida, Rutgers, Oregon State, Mississippi State ad Ohio all ended up on the wrong side of the scoreboard, prompting a serious reshuffling of the rankings, especially in the middle, where teams 14-17 all went down to losses.

In addition to #14 Rutgers - a 35-23 loser to Kent State - #15 Oregon State - who lost to Washington, 20-17 - and #16 Mississippi State, who was victimized by top-ranked Alabama, 38-7, #17 Texas Tech was hammered by Big 12 rival Kansas State, probably the most surprising team in college football, who remained unbeaten at 8-0.

The six undefeated teams which remained unblemished were Alabama, Oregon, Notre Dame, Kansas State, Ohio State and Louisville, and all moved up the rankings, except for the top three - Alabama, Oregon and Notre Dame - which stayed in place at 1-2-3. Louisville outlasted Cincinnati, winning, 34-31, in overtime.

Dropping right out of the rankings were #22 Michigan (5-3), #23 Ohio (7-1) and #25 Arizona State (5-2), all losers on Saturday.

Overall, 10 teams took losses in Week 9, something of a shock this late in the season, but demonstrating how well-balanced the college game has become over the past decade.

Most impressive were the top four, of which Kansas State took over the #4 spot - vacated by USC, a 39-36 loser to Arizona - with a 55-24 stomping of Texas Tech.

Notre Dame took care of business in Oklahoma, handily knocking off the overrated and heavily-favored Sooners, 30-13.

Oregon scored 56 first half points, cruising to a 70-14 win over Colorado, while #1 Alabama had no issues in their 38-7 tour de force over previously-unbeaten Mississippi State.

The big game of the week was Georgia's 17-9 victory over Florida in Jacksonville, a stunning revival of an annual rivalry.

Looking forward to Week 10, Alabama plays at LSU, while USC hosts the Oregon Ducks. Notre Dame returns home to face Pitt, and Kansas State plays host to Oklahoma State. #5 Ohio State, ineligible for any post-season play, takes on 2-6 Illinois, in Columbus.
