Columnists' Corner

Teddy Greenstein, Chicago Tribune: Iowa never had a chance. No. 1 Ohio State scored early and scored often to rout the Hawkeyes.

Patrick Reusse, Star Tribune: "I took 41 bets from Twin Citians," a local entrepreneur said. "And I didn't get one dime on the Gophers. Please. I need another consolation touchdown."

Greg Hansen, Arizona Daily Star: Arizona, which has rushed for minus-23 yards the past two games, might as well call it a season and begin preparing for 2007.

John Canzano, Oregonian: After being routed by California and Oregon the past two weeks, Arizona State defensive lineman David Smith says the Bears are the superior team. "Oregon is so much about trickery and misdirection. Cal is just plain physical. It's not even close."

Brian Murphy, Idaho Statesman: After a 36-3 dismembering of Utah, Boise State is firmly in the BCS discussion.

Rick Bozich, Louisville Courier-Journal: His team can't block and it can't tackle, so why did Indiana coach Terry Hoeppner race back for this?

Scott Rabalais, Baton Rouge Advocate: One thing is clear for Louisiana State: The Tigers need to work on their running game.

Joe Biddle, Tennessean: Vanderbilt routed Temple, but who doesn't rout Temple? It was an unimpressive effort for the Commodores.
