The Inkwell NCAAF Week Ten Top Ten By Aaron “The Inkwell” Smith

1. Oregon Ducks- The Washington Huskies came into Eugene and encountered what all the other previous teams had encountered. They were waxed 53-16 by the BCS Poll’s number 1 ranked team. The Ducks took over in the third quarter when they rattled off 21 straight unanswered points.
Up Next: Washington vs UCLA (Nov. 18), No. 1 Oregon at California (Nov. 13)
2. TCU Horned Frogs- It is bad to get demolished on your home field, but it is even worse to be completely dominated when you were an undefeated, top 5 ranked team. That is exactly what TCU did to the Utah Utes this past Saturday. This contest was over in the first quarter as TCU went up by 21.  The final score was 47-7 as TCU won for the first time in Salt Lake City in four tries.
Up Next: No. 3 TCU vs San Diego State (Nov. 13), No. 5 Utah at Notre Dame (Nov. 13)

3.  Auburn Tigers- There is not much to talk about here in this cakewalk. The Tigers played a cupcake and cake walked to a 62-24 shalacking of Chatanooga. Cam Newton continued his quest towards the Heisman with 5 touchdowns and 317 yards of passing.
Up Next: Chattanooga vs Samford (Nov. 13), No. 2 Auburn vs Georgia (Nov. 13)

4. Boise State Broncos- It is sad to say but Boise will be left out of the national championship again. It is not because they are not doing their part. The Broncos manhandled a very good Hawaii team 42-7 on the Smurf Turf. Boise State had a school record of 737 yards of total offense as Kellen Moore threw for 3 touchdowns and 507 yards.
Up Next: Hawaii vs San Jose State (Nov. 20), No. 4 Boise State at Idaho (Nov. 12)

5. LSU Tigers- 15-1. That is Coach Les Miles’ record after coming off of a loss. Alabama wished that LSU would have beaten Auburn last week because the Tigers just ruined Alabama’s shot as being a one loss team with the possibility of playing for the national championship. LSU quarterback Jarrett Lee completed a 47 yard pass to allow LSU to drain the clock and preserve a 24-21 victory at Tiger Stadium.
Up Next: No. 6 Alabama vs No. 19 Mississippi State (Nov. 13), No. 10 LSU vs Louisiana-Monroe (Nov. 13)

6. Stanford Cardinals- The Cardinals became the first team to put 30 points on the visiting Wildcats. Stanford opened up its scoring with a first quarter touchdown pass from quarterback Andrew Luck, and never looked back as they demolished number 15 ranked Arizona 42-17.
Up Next: No. 15 Arizona vs USC (Nov. 13), No. 13 Stanford at Arizona State (Nov. 13)

7. Wisconsin Badgers- There is nothing new here for the Badgers this past Saturday. The Badgers badgered a dreadful Purdue team 34-13 to win its fifth straight game against the Boilermakers. Montee Ball had a career- high 127 rushing yards and scored 2 touchdowns.  And quite fitting, Montee Ball was awarded the game ball.
Up Next: No. 9 Wisconsin vs Indiana (Nov. 13), Purdue vs Michigan (Nov. 13)

8. Ohio State Buckeyes- The Buckeyes were idle this past Saturday.
Up Next: Penn State

9. Michigan State Spartans- The Spartans bounced back from last week’s loss and beat up on a struggling Minnesota Gophers team 31-8. The Spartans came out angry after losing for the first time last week to the Iowa Hawkeyes. Running back Edwin Baker torched the Gophers for 179 yards and four touchdowns, and quarterback Kirk Cousins did not have one touchdown for the first time in 16 games.
Up Next: Minnesota at Illinois (Nov. 13), No. 14 Michigan State vs Purdue (Nov. 20)

10. Nebraska Cornhuskers- Without quarterback Taylor Martinez, the Huskers struggled on the road against Iowa State. They barely escaped with a 31-30 victory. Eric Hagg intercepted a fake conversion attempt in overtime to avoid the upset.
Up Next: No. 7 Nebraska vs Kansas (Nov. 13), Iowa State at Colorado (Nov. 13)
