Top Teams in the Country Lose [David Stefanini]

For the first time since 1996, the top two teams in the nation lost on the same day. First it was Kentucky upsetting No. 1 LSU in 3OT. This was an amazing game, which came down to Kentucky's defense holding LSU to nothing in the 3OT to pull off the upset.

So NO. 2 Cal, was playing their game looking to be the NO. 1 team in the nation. But unranked, Oregon State had different ideas. Oregon State had a 20-14 lead going into the 4th quarter, and was lucky enough to hold on to the 31-28 victory.

This season is becoming the season of upsets. People thought for sure LSU and USC were heading for a collision in the national title game. Rutgers was supposed to continue their climb to the football elite, and Michigan was supposed to virtually unstoppable on offense.

Now Rutgers is unranked, Michigan was unranked as of Week 2, and both LSU and USC have lost games. The Top 10 will surely be shuffled again this week.

It looks as if we are headed to another BCS controversy. Which 1-loss team deserves to be in front of all the rest? I guess we will have to wait until tomorrow to see, who is ranked where. One thing is almost certain, Ohio State will be ranked #1 in the nation.
