Columnists' Corner

Woody Paige, Denver Post: Clocks were set back an hour everywhere Sunday morning. College football in Nebraska was set back 117 years Saturday afternoon.

Scott Rabalais, Baton Rouge Advocate: The insanity that was October for Louisiana State lives on in November — as does the Tigers’ now 16-game November winning streak, its five-game Alabama winning streak, and its one-game winning streak over former savior and current public enemy No. 1, Nick Saban.

Bob Heist, Shreveport Times: Alabama's loss to LSU reinforced the belief that Nick Saban's record doesn't match his salary.

Bob Ryan, Boston Globe: Now that the fantasy of Boston College playing in the BCS title game is over, the Eagles must refocus on their original goal: Get to the Orange Bowl by winning the Atlantic Coast Conference championship.

Bob Hunter, Columbus Dispatch: Whether the Buckeyes are the best team in the country is debatable, but they survived a reality check against Wisconsin.

Paola Boivin, Arizona Republic: The verdict is in and the national championship is out. But despite a loss at Oregon, all charges of fraud against Arizona State should be dropped.

Bob Spear, Columbia State: South Carolina’s once-promising season is anything but with two nationally ranked teams — Florida and Clemson — remaining.

Patrick Reusse, Minneapolis Star-Tribune: Minnesota players obviously have had enough of Tim Brewster's amateur histrionics and have stopped playing for him.

Darren Sabedra, San Jose Mercury News: To say Stanford has regressed since its historic upset of USC four weeks ago would be putting it kindly.

Greg Hansen, Arizona Daily Star: In a matter of two weeks, Arizona has turned a shipwreck of a season into one of hope.

Frank Dascenzo, Durham Herald-Sun: Duke fans, this doesn't seem to be getting any better.
