Not alot happend this weekend in college football. But for what did happen, here is some analysis on it.
The game of the week was the #6 Utah Utes hosting the #4 TCU Horned Frogs.
Both Mountain West teams have an easy schedule following this game. TCU's biggest challenge is San Diego State, and then what could be the eaisest game of the season against New Mexico.
Utah follows this game with Notre Dame, San Diego State, and BYU. Tougher then TCU's, but winnable.
Now with both having a easy schedule after, the winner can pack there bags for a BCS bowl game, and just maybe Glendale for the Natinal Championship. This game was expected to be tight, and competetive. I predicted a 35-26 win for Utah.
But that was not the case at all, as TCU cruised to a 47-7 victory.
Andy Dalton posted 335 passing yards, and three touchdowns.
TCU can now guarentee a BCS bowl game, and Boise State, who won in impressive fashion over Hawaii, can as well.
With Alabama loosing, TCU and Boise State wont have a 1-loss team potentially jumping them into the BCS. If Auburn and Oregon loose, it might be to late for them to get back into the BCS. Unless Auburn can still win the SEC Championship.
For Auburn, who improved to 10-0 with a win over Chattanooga, Alabama is the team left who could spoil the Tigers season.
As for the Oregon Ducks (9-0), Cal, Arizona and Oregon State remain.
For my new Top 25, Oregon remains #1. Auburn jumps to #2, and TCU with the amazing win goes to #3. While Boise State did have a great win, they have only played eight games, two less then Auburn and TCU. The Broncos also have a weaker schedule. Thus, a drop to #4.
1. Oregon 9-0
2. Auburn 10-0
3. TCU 10-0
4. Boise State 8-0
