TITLE CHASERS ELIMINATED FROM THE HUNT
November 12, 2006

SCS.com This week the national title race cleared up a little with the elimination of one undefeated team, as Louisville lost to Rutgers, and three other one-loss teams (Cal, Auburn, and Texas). With the losses at the top, the game next weekend featuring #1 Ohio State vs. #2 Michigan will have large implications on the national title hopes of USC, Rutgers, Arkansas, and Notre Dame. The Big XII South suffered tremendously as all four Texas schools went down, while Wake Forest went to 9-1 for the first time in school history and did it soundly, whipping a down-trodden Florida State team 30-0.

BEST GAME

Kansas State over Texas
In a game that was supposed to be anything but close, freshman quarterback Josh Freeman and the upstart Wildcats were able to do what only Ohio State had been able to, and that was to beat the Texas Longhorns. In a game that featured a lot of scoring, KSU was able to severely hobble the Texas offense by knocking star quarterback Colt McCoy out of the game. Ian Campbell recovered two Texas fumbles for the Wildcats, which both resulted in K-State scores. Texas was able to pull within three late but State recovered the onside kick and ran out the clock for the victory.
Runner-Up: Florida over South Carolina

BIGGEST UPSET

Kansas State over Texas
Not only was it the week's most entertaining game, it was the most surprising as well.
Runner-Up: Georgia over Auburn

BEST TEAM PERFORMANCE

Wake Forest Demon Deacons
Wake shutout FSU 30-0 at Doak Campbell Stadium in Tallahassee on Saturday. Deacons quarterback Riley Skinner was 13 of 19 for 138 yards and a touchdown, while his FSU counterparts Drew Weatherford and Xavier Lee were a combined 9 of 28 with four picks.
Runner-Up: Brigham Young Cougars

MOST DISAPPOINTING TEAM PERFORMANCE

Florida State
In the midst of a terrible season, things could not have gotten any worse for FSU than being shutout by Wake Forest at home. Unless this team can start to produce, the heat will start to turn up under the coach’s seat.
Runner-Up: Auburn Tigers

PLAYERS OF THE WEEK

Josh Freeman – Quarterback – Kansas State
Freeman was 19 of 31 for 269 yards and three touchdowns in a stunning upset over Texas Saturday evening.
Ian Campbell – Defensive End – Kansas State
Campbell recovered two fumbles against Texas that resulted in Wildcat touchdowns.
Blake Mitchell – Quarterback – South Carolina
In a loss to Florida, Mitchell was 24 of 33 for 275 yards.
Steve Slaton – Running Back – West Virginia
Slaton rushed for 148 yards on 12 carries with two touchdowns against Cincinnati.

THREE THINGS WE LEARNED

#1. Texas, Louisville, Auburn, and Florida are out of the national title picture. The losses by UL, UT, and AU and the near miss by Florida have, in my mind, eliminated these four from title contention.
#2: Rutgers is the best team in the Big East, and if they finish by beating West Virginia and don’t get into the title game, the system should be junked.
#3: Wake Forest is for real. Any doubts as to how good this team may be were erased on Saturday as the Deacons shut out the Seminoles at home.
