Upcoming College Football Games

The Colts made short work of the Steelers last night, winning 26-7. The win moves them to 11-0, making them the 11th team in NFL history to open a season 11-0 or better. It's the third-best start of any team since the merger (1970), behind only the '72 Miami Dolphins 14-0 regular season, Denver's 13-0 start in 1998 and Chicago's 12-0 start in 1985. Speaking of Chicago, the 8-3 Bears have won seven straight games and through 11 games, own the league's stingiest defense, allowing just 120 points (10.9 PPG). The Colts have the league's second-best scoring defense, allowing 159 points, 39 more than Chicago. Not surprisingly, Chicago has allowed a league-low 10 TDs, EIGHT fewer than Indy's 18. Steve Mariucci became the first NFL head coach to be fired this year (by the Lions) and one wonders, can Dom Capers and Norv Turner be far behind?

The latest BCS standings saw the entire top-10 unchanged from the previous week. That's just the SECOND time that's happened in its eight-year history! USC is No. 1 for the fifth straight week and no team that's entered the final weekend of the regular season ranked No. 1 in the BCS, has ever failed to reach the title game. Oklahoma was No. 1 in 2003 when it lost 35-7 to Kansas State in the Big-12 title game on that season's final Saturday, yet the Sooners remained No. 1 in the BCS' final standings the following day. That was the year that USC, ranked No. 1 in both the AP and Coaches' poll, was left out of the championship game. As for teams ranked No. 2 entering the season's final weekend? Only twice have they failed to qualify for the BCS title game. UCLA lost at Miami-Fla 49-45 in 1998 and Tennessee lost 31-20 to LSU in the SEC title game in 2001.
