The Inkwell Top 10 Week 8 By Aaron “The Inkwell” Smith

1. Boise State- The Broncos remain put. They had a bye week. Every week seems like a bye week to this efficient, offensive juggernaut.
2. Oregon- The Ducks played a ESPN Thursday Night Game against the Bruins of UCLA. Now I see why this was a Thursday game. This match did not even deserve to be on any one’s television as Oregon manhandled UCLA 60-13. The Ducks are 7-0 for the first time since 1933.

3. TCU- The Air Force flew in and ended up getting their wings clipped by the Horned Frogs 38-7. TCU remains undefeated with the hopes of playing for a national championship. The Horned Frogs gave up their first TD in 198 minutes.

4. Auburn- The Cam Newton Show was aired on LSU TV and then was nominated for the Heisman lead spot. Newton rushed for 217 yards against the Tigers’ top ten rushing defense. While dispatching LSU 24-17, Auburn rushed for over 300 yards in its forth straight game.

5. Michigan State- The Spartans battled back from 10 down in the fourth quarter against a pesky Northwestern team to remain undefeated at 8-0.

6. Utah- The Utes keep their Krispy Kreme Doughnut in the loss column. Utah piled up 648 yards against a hapless Colorado State squad defeating the Rams 59-6. Utah is now 22-1 when ranked while facing an unranked opponent.

7. Alabama- Well, the Tide is inching back up as the number ones keep getting knocked off. Alabama rolled over Tennessee 41-10 with Trent Richardson rushing for two scores and 119 yards. Alabama allowed Volunteers’ running back, Tauren Poole, to rush for over 100 yards. He is the first back to do so in Alabama’s last 41 games.

8. Wisconsin- The Badgers edged the Iowa Hawkeyes 31-30 in a nail biter. With the win, the Badgers knotted the series up 42-42-2 and kept their BCS Bowl hopes alive.

9. Missouri- The Tigers defeated number one ranked Oklahoma for the first time since 1998 bringing them to a record of 7-0. In back-to-back weeks the Tigers have positioned themselves for a run at the BCS Championship.

10. Ohio State- With all the number one ranked teams falling every week, the Buckeyes kept pace by beating up on a injury depleted Purdue team 49-0. This is not Tressel like but if they want a shot at a national championship they better keep beating up on the competition. QB Terrell Pryor became the ninth Ohio State signal caller to pass for over 5,000 yards.
