A look at who's going which way in college football

Takeup_medium BIG TEN
Wins over Connecticut and Vanderbilt "highlight" 9-2 weekend. Yes, nine plus two is eleven. Don't ask.

Takeup_medium ESPN
Say what you want about the Worldwide Leader, but it has accelerated the trend of neutral-site, interconference games that were among the weekend's most interesting. Still doesn't make up for ESPNU or "This Is Our Moment."

Takeup_medium TEXAS TECH OFFENSE
Red Raiders throw 53 times in Tommy Tuberville's debut. Of course, the 2.3 ypc rushing probably had something to do with that.

Takedown_medium SEC
One team lost to a school in a different subdivision. Another was lucky to defeat a team in the MAC. The teams from the East that looked best over the weekend went a combined 15-11 last year. Fair question: Why does the SEC deserve AQ status?

Takedown_medium OKLAHOMA SOONERS
Almost lost to Utah State. NEXT STOP BCS!!!

Takedown_medium NCAA
Indecisiveness keeps teams guessing who will be eligible until final moments. Isn't this pretty much all you do?
