1. Washington: Losing in 2-OT to Washington State (two field goals) can only result in No. 1 status.
1A. Washington State: A 16-13 loss instead of win against Washington would have boosted State to No. 1.
3. Idaho: The Vandals did what any bad team does on a trip to Hawaii – have fun and get pounded.
4. Tennessee: Beating Vandy was nice, but can’t erase the pain of Fulmer’s last hurrah in Knoxville.
5. Utah State: The Aggies took it easy last week in preparing for a snooner against New Mexico State.
6. North Texas: The Mean Green were timid again in another lopsided loss to Middle Tennessee State.
7. Notre Dame: Kudos to the Irish for losing to a team with at least eight losses for the first time in school history.
8. Wyoming: The Cowboys had a chance to escape, but let Colorado State come back and beat them.
9. Michigan: The Wolverines belong in the Dozen after another inept effort against Ohio State.
10. New Mexico State: The Aggies flurted with victory, but came up short at home against Louisiana Tech.
11. UNLV: Blowing a .500 season and bowl eligibility after a 3-1 start is worthy of entrance to this group.
12. Iowa State: Well, the Cyclones did score 30 on K-State!
Cleaning up its act: San Diego State (beating UNLV by 21!).
