Despite big scares for Notre Dame and Alabama, a less-than-impressive defensive effort from Oregon, and an apparent injury to K-State's quarterback, all four undefeated teams at the top of the rankings made it through last week.
This week, Alabama gets an interesting test against Texas A&M and freshman quarterback Johnny Manziel. Notre Dame and Oregon have relative walkovers against Boston College and Cal, respectively. K-State has a tricky trip to Forth Worth to face Gary Patterson and Texas Christian.
There are only three games featuring two ranked teams this week. Outside of Alabama/A&M, the biggest matchup is clearly Stanford/Oregon State. Somehow, LSU/Mississippi State is a meeting of two ranked teams, but seriously, how the hell are the Bulldogs still ranked? Shockingly, there are no big games in the Big 10.
