College Football's Top 10 and BCS Poll Projection: Auburn Takes Over

The screwball world of college football places many demands on teams attempting to navigate into the paradise of an undefeated season.

The most recent additions to that world are the awe-inspiring Auburn Tigers, the steel-nerved Spartans of Michigan State, the always ready-to-perform TCU Horned Frogs and the bruising Tigers of Missouri.

Utah and Oregon continued to remain undefeated without any real challenge during the past weekend.

Boise State did not have a game scheduled.

Michigan State seemed dead in the water at Northwestern when head coach Mark Dantonio suckered the Wildcats of Pat Fitzgerald with a fake punt play known as "The Mousetrap." Asked why he calls it that, the Spartan boss man revealed "because we bait them into taking the cheese." The result was a 35-27 comeback victory for the mean green squad. 

The ponderous Tigers from Missouri knocked Oklahoma all over the field while the Sooners demonstrated their latest lapse of brain activity known as the missed tackle. A 36-27 debacle was the result for OU coach Bob Stoops.

The men from Fort Worth, Texas found themselves in a dogfight, or whatever kind of fight it is when a frog and falcon do battle, with the "Zoomies" of The Air Force Academy. The "Purple Men of Texas" awoke to slash and gash the Air Force Mountain West Title hopes, 38-7.

But nowhere was the sound louder than in the land on the plains of Alabama, where mighty Auburn brought down the undefeated LSU Tigers in the SEC game of the year, 24-17.

Hail, hail, to the conquering heroes!
