Columnists' Corner

Mick Elliott, Tampa Tribune: Do Sugar Bowl and South Florida go together? They just might, as the Bulls are positioned to drop the wrecking ball on the BCS.

John Rhode, Oklahoman: Oklahoma State's defense is so bad, it made for a perfect match against the octane-powered Texas Tech offense (registration).

Andrew Bagnato, Arizona Republic: Arizona State, once ranked and regarded as an up-and-coming power, could not have dreamed up a more frightening finish.

Mark Bradley, Atlanta Journal-Constitution: Auburn and Georgia have played 109 times, but Saturday's game ranks among the classics (registration).

Joe Henderson, Tampa Tribune: Steve Spurrier is on his way to owning the Southeastern Conference again.

Jason Kelly, South Ben Tribune: Sensing his team wasn't ready to play, Notre Dame's Crewcut Charlie Weis let his players have it before the kickoff against Navy.

Bill Plaschke, Los Angeles Times: USC coach Pete Carroll is administering the first real injection of doubt into the backbone of the nation's smartest and best-run program.

Adam Mertz, Capital Times: Wisconsin fans are used to hangovers, but it's going to take some time to recover from the Badgers' loss in Barry Alvarez's home finale.

Kevin Scarbinski, Birmingham News: It wasn't supposed to end this way. Alabama wasn't going to lose, not with the best defense in the nation surrendering a touchdown pass on the final snap.

Kirk Bohls, Austin American-Statesman: Maybe Texas needs to start losing. Although it is a giant in a league of dwarves, fans have no excuse for leaving early. So much for atmosphere (registration).
