Ups and Downs: Week 2 -- Conferences and Associations


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.

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."

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!!!

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