Matt Barkley has a separated shoulder according to CBS Los Angeles:
So if this is accurate can USC beat ND without him?
If they do, then Crave was correct with his "Ohio State could potentially be the only team without a loss after everything is all said and done" comment.
In other news:
How far does Kansas St fall? Losing by 28 to a .500 Baylor? I'd say pretty darn far.
They are out of the conversation now IMO.
How far does Oregon fall? Losing by 3 in OT to a very good Stanford team, they may not fall very much at all.
IMO they are probably still 3 or 4.
More interesting tidbits:
Stanford heads to UCLA next week.
If I am correct, I believe a Stanford win results in a rematch for the PAC 12 CG. A win by UCLA means Oregon would host UCLA.
Similar to another game today as Tulsa beat UCF to win the right to host them again for the CONUSA title game.
Additionally North Carolina, with their win over Virginia on Thursday now only needs to beat Maryland (and Miami to beat Duke) and they win the ACC Coastal division title.
An exciting week for the MAC:
Kent St beat Bowliing Green in a battle to decide the MAC East, while N Illinois beat Toledo in the same scenario for the MAC West.
