The college football scene had multiple scares for top-tier teams, as many of the highest ranked programs had a lot to handle as conference play deepened.

The big game this weekend for BCS implications was top-ranked Alabama visiting #5 LSU. In a hard fought battle, the Crimson Tide took the win 21-17.

A shootout in Manhattan against Oklahoma State may have some people wondering if this Kansas State defense is legit, but I have to say, KSU is one fantastic football team.

Notre Dame pulled out a win in a third overtime period against a stingy, unranked Pittsburgh team 29-26.

Oregon and USC lit up the scoreboard as well, combining for 113 points. Oregon came away with a 62-51 victory in Pasadena.

Florida topped Missouri by only a touchdown at home, and dark horse Oregon State took care of a threatening Arizona State team 36-26.

Of course, we all know Texas Tech dropped the ball big time, yet so did Boise State, which lost to San Diego State 21-19 at home as well.

In the NFL, Atlanta squeaked out a win against the Cowboys to stay undefeated, as Chicago, Detroit, Baltimore, and Houston cruised to victories.
