Jeff Rice, Centre Daily Times: Penn State caught all the breaks this season. It hopes to catch one more lucky round against Florida State.
Jim Henry, Tallahassee Democrat: Bobby Bowden is concerned about Penn State's maturity, and for good reason.
Ray Fittipaldo, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette: Much was made of Georgia's blinding speed, but the fastest players on the field were West Virginia's Steve Slaton and Pat White.
Jeff Schultz, Atlanta Journal-Constitution: Georgia was merely too relaxed, too at home, and dug itself too big of a hole (registration).
Terry Pluto, Akron Beacon-Journal: The focus was on what happens when you give Charlie Weis four weeks to prepare. But what happens when you give Jim Tressel four weeks? (registration).
Jason Kelly, South Bend Tribune: A heavy dose of reality: In the end, Notre Dame finished 9-3, but only 2-2 against Big Ten competition.
Michael Hunt, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel: Barry Alvarez secured his legacy long before beating Auburn. He merely added to it with the Badgers' convincing victory.
Christa Turner, Columbus Ledger-Enquirer: Auburn's defense was so worked over by Wisconsin, coordinator David Gibbs was unavailable for postgame interviews.
Chuck Williams Columbus Ledger-Enquirer: Even the Texas Tech mascot couldn't watch as a man named Christensen rescued Alabama once again.
Brian Davis, Dallas Morning News: Texas Tech couldn't immediately diagnose why its high-octane offense sputtered and stalled against Alabama (registration).
Peter Kerasotis, Florida Today: Year One of the Urban Meyer experiment is in the books at Florida. The reviews aren't rave, but they're hardly wretched, either.
Mike Hlas, Cedar Rapids Gazette: Iowa might be screaming about the officiating, but that's what losers do (subscription, so story is in comments).
