A wild Thursday night started Week 11 off with a bang, as Baylor introduced itself to the world, while Stanford knocked Oregon out of the BCS national title conversation.
The Heisman Trophy picture was also shaken up, as a poor game from Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota opened the door for Florida State's Jameis Winston, Texas A&M's Johnny Manziel and others.
The week settled down a bit on Saturday. A few conference races were clarified, while several others only became more muddled, including the ACC Coastal Division with the loss by Miami (Fla.).
While many of the outlooks for teams around the country are still up in the air, the scenario in Tuscaloosa couldn't be more clear. Alabama checked off a decisive win against rival LSU to show that it's still the favorite to take the crystal football at season's end.
