Texas Tech Beats TexasWeek: | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10

Total Pro Sports – We have a new #1 this week in our weekly College Football Power Rankings. The Alabama Crimson Tide vault to #1after the all mighty Texas Longhorns lose a close one against state rivals the Texas Tech Red Raiders.

In a Nationally televised game the Longhorns went to Texas Tech and lost what was supposed to be a come from behind win for the Horns. Graham Harrell the QB of the Red Raiders threw the ball to Michael Crabtree in double coverage. The All-American and number one wide receiver in the nation, shook off a defender and scampered into the end zone with one second left.

With this loss the Texas Longhorns have most likely lost their chances at a National Championship berth. The Red Raiders on the other hand still have a tough schedule, if they can stay undefeated they will be sure to win a berth in the BCS National Championship Game.

Rank Team Rec PRV Comment

Alabama Crimson Tide

9-0 Green Arrow1 How about being a Tide fan after this week they got what they needed out of the Texas vs. Texas Tech game and become the nations top team. With their schedule consisting of struggling opponents the Tide have set themselves up for a magical season. Up Next: LSU Tigers

Texas Tech Red Raiders

9-0 Green Arrow4 What a great game on primetime for the Red Raiders, for them to pull the win out in that fashion was absolutly remarkable. The Red Raiders have a tough remaining schedule and will be greatly tested down the stretch. Up Next: Oklahoma State Cowboys
3 Penn State Lions 9-0 - Bye Week. Up Next: Iowa Hawkeyes

4 Florida Gators 7-1 Green Arrow1 Could you imagine the scenario had the Gators not fallen to the Rebels in the swamp 4 weeks ago? They have absolutly dominated the likes of LSU, Kentucky and Georgia the past 3 weeks and have proven they are the best 1 loss team in the country. Up Next: Vanderbilt Commodores
5 Oklahoma Sooners 8-1 Red Arrow1 Another game and yet another rout for the Sooners. It seems that the Sooners are putting teams away early in games and keeping their foot on the pedal. Sam Bradford is having an unimaginable season and will be highly considered in the Heismen talk. Up Next: Texas A&M Aggies

Texas Longhorns

8-1 Red Arrow5 Heartbreaking is not the word that should be used to describe their loss this week. It was more like tragic as the Longhorns may have let a National Championship berth go by the wayside this week. Up Next: Baylor Bears


7-1 -

If only the Trojans could play teams from the state of Washington every week as they have posted 2 shutout victories against Washington and Washington State. They have faired well against the PAC-10 this year going 5-1 and outscoring teams 235-47. Up Next: California Golden Bears

8 Bosie State Broncos 8-0 Green Arrow3 They pull ahead of Utah based on their performance this week. The Broncos seem to be in this situation every year, a great record but stay below the radar. Up Next: Utah State Aggies
9 Utah Utes 7-0 - They survived a scare this week as they edged off an inferior New Mexico team. They remain one of the undefeated teams nonetheless. Up Next: TCU Horned Frogs


8-1 Green Arrow1 The Horned Frogs sit atop the Mountain West with a 6-0 mark. They have looked dominant in 9 out of their 10 games and will need to continue to play well with 2 tough tests remaining. Up Next: Utah Utes

Oklahoma State

8-1 Green Arrow3 No letdown following a heartbreaking loss as the Cowboys take care of business against the Cyclones. Where did the combination of Robinson and Bryant come from, I don’t remember any talk about them in the preseason. Up Next: Texas Tech Red Raiders

Missouri Tigers

7-2 -

The Tigers were able to slip past the Baylor Bears this week on a late field goal to win. Missouri was able to do something that no other team had done thusfar and that was to intercept Robert Griffin. Up Next: Kansas State Wildcats



8-1 - They were another team that surprisingly struggled against an unlikly opponent. The Cougars needed every big play they got from Max Hall to win on the road this week. Up Next: San Diego State Aztecs
14 Michigan State Spartans 8-2 Green Arrow5 Although the Big 10 title may be out of reach for the Spartans they managed to keep their slim hopes alive with a huge win against the Badgers. Up Next: Purdue Boilermakers

Ohio State Buckeyes

7-2 - Bye Week. Up Next: Northwestern Wildcats
16 Georgia Bulldogs 7-2 Red Arrow8 In their wins they have looked very impressive, however, in their 2 defeats they have looked awful. Their defense they have been beaten up by the two of the best teams in their conference. Up Next: Kentucky Wildcats
17 Georgia Tech 7-2 NR At the beginning of the season the ACC was the toughest conference to figure out, now we have come to the end and still we have no clue what will happen. The Yellow Jackets have been arguably the most consistent team in the conference. Up Next: North Carolina Tar Heels
18 LSU Tigers 6-2 Green Arrow1 No surprise that the Tigers were able to breeze to a win. The way that the No.1 teams have fallen this year the game next may cost the Crimson Tide a shot at the National Championship. Up Next: Alabama Crimson Tide
19 Northwestern Wildcats 7-2 NR The only scoring in the second half of their game was a game winning 48 yard interception return with :12 left. The Wildcats got it done without their starting quarterback, they will need him back for next weeks game. Next Up: Ohio State Buckeyes

West Virginia

6-2 NR We almost counted the Mountaineers out this season, following 2 early season losses the Mountaineers have rebounded nicely with 5 straight wins. Up Next: Cincinnati Bearcats

Ball State

8-0 -
Bye Week. Up Next: Northern Illinois Huskies
22 California Golden Bears 6-2 NR Cal keeps pace with Southern California with a big win against Oregon this week. Speaking of the Trojans the Golden Bears have a matchup against them next week in a game that has a lot at stake in terms of a conference champion. Up Next: USC Trojans
23 North Carolina 6-2 Green Arrow1 Bye Week. Up Next: Syracuse Orangemen

Air Force

7-2 NR The fourth Mountain West team has made our Top 25 Power Rankings, congratulations to the underrated Mountain West, a conference that is continuing to improve each year. Up Next: Colorado State Rams


8-1 Red Arrow5 They suffered their first loss at the hands of the disappointing Razorbacks. With their strength of schedule they are doing themselves no favors losing winnable games. Up Next: Houston Cougars

Honorable Mention:Florida State, Minnesota, Cincinnati, Pittsburgh.
