And they all came tumbling down…

Super Saturday delivered, and it delivered some big upsets and shakeups for the top five in the polls.  Numbers 3, 4, and 5 all fell!  LSU lost to Florida in the afternoon, and in last night’s action, South Carolina spanked the Bulldogs 35-7.   In a heart breaker (if one is a Nole fan), NC State came from behind and scored the winning touchdown with time running out to hand FSU a disappointing loss, 17-16.  Quite a performance by NC State in the second half, holding FSU scoreless and with almost no yards rushing.

Other final scores include: Ohio State 56 – Nebraska 31 (apparently Urban Meyer is back to working his magic as he has the Buckeyes undefeated); WVU outlasted Texas in a shootout, 48-45 and QB Geno Smith continues to be the Heisman frontrunner for now; Notre Dame demolished Miami 41-3 and demonstrated that perhaps it is once again deserving of relevance and its ranking.  It was a very dismal performance by Miami who had showed such promise in the past few weeks.  Also, not a good showing for the ACC this past Saturday in general.  Last but hardly least, Oregon defeated Washington by a sore of 52-21.  This Oregon team is fun to watch and fully deserving of its #2 ranking.  You blink and they score.  You leave the TV for two minutes and come back and they had 21 points when you left and when you get back they have 36!! Very exciting and impressive bunch under Chip Kelley.

This all resulted in three new teams entering the top five in the polls:4  Florida, 3 South Carolina and 5 West Virginia.
