College Football Week 8: Oklahoma Not a Real No. 1 Team and 25 Things We Learned

For the third straight week, a No. 1 team has fallen victim to the upset bug.

Three weeks ago, Alabama was the first to fall as they were knocked off by South Carolina. The next afternoon, it was Ohio State that would take over the top spot in the polls.

The Buckeyes proved they weren't worthy when they, too, were upset, this time on the road at Wisconsin. The next day, the first BCS poll was released, announcing the Oklahoma Sooners as the top team in the nation.

The water cooler talk was rabid among college football fans around the country, questioning the Sooners on whether they deserved the top spot.

They would have a chance to prove that on the field against the team that was nearly beaten by San Diego State just a few weeks earlier—the Missouri Tigers.

Unfortunately for Oklahoma, they became the third straight No. 1 team to lose.

With all the goings on in college football this past week, it's time to take a look back at the 25 things we learned this week.
