Reporters' Notebooks

Scott Rabalais, Baton Rouge Advocate: Not only did Louisiana State and JaMarcus Russell lose to Florida, the quarterback needed a ride home after the game because his 2002 Chevrolet Tahoe had been stolen from the airport parking lot.

Brett Vito, Denton Record-Chronicle: In case you missed it, North Texas held off Florida International, 25-22, in seven overtimes.

Ray Glier, New York Times
: Auburn suddenly looks like a team with a lot of warts after a stunning loss to Arkansas (registration).

Chris Dufrense, Los Angeles Times: USC has won 26 consecutive Pac-10 games, but it appears California, after a 45-28 slapping of Oregon, is the team to beat.

Ferd Lewis, Honolulu Advertister: Hawaii, known for offense, needed a big lift from the defense to get past Nevada.

Bryant-Jon Anteola, Fresno Bee: Fresno State has hit rock bottom after losing to previously winless Utah State.

Paul Suellentrop, Wichita Eagle: A small but determined group is continuing to lobby to bring back football to Wichita State (thanks to John for this!).

Tim Doherty, Clarion Ledger: Southern Mississippi's defense is under fire after giving up 453 yards to Tulsa in a loss.
