Oregon and Auburn continue to roll behind Heisman trophy candidates LaMichael James and Cameron Newton, while Boise State does the same. Oregon took on Pac-10 rival USC in Los Angeles in what many would say is their toughest of remaining opponents this season. The Ducks outlasted the Trojans continuing to score relentlessly like they have all year behind 236 rushing yards from LaMichael James, beating USC 53-32. Boise State and Auburn cruised to victories to remain 2nd and 3rd in the rankings.

Two previously unbeaten teams took surprising losses this week. Michigan State was crushed by Iowa 37-6 and Missouri lost 31-17 to Nebraska. Consequently both Michigan State and Missouri fell from the top ten in this week’s rankings. The win moved Nebraska back into the top ten for the first time since their loss to Texas earlier in the year.
