Oklahoma State does his best Kellen Moore impression in win over Arizona
The senior went 42-53 for 397 yards and 2 TD's and 1 INT for a 150.8 QB rating. That's still south of Kellen Moore's 170.1 rating against Georgia, in case you were wondering.

Boise State as the anti-Oregon? I like it
Mandel also points out the fact that Oregon has continued to disappoint on the big stage (LSU, Auburn, Ohio State) while Boise State has continued to thrive. Also, you can throw in that 2-0 record against the Ducks.

Anyone notice that RB Isaiah Crowell and CB Branden Smith both wore #1 on Saturday? (HT: Blutarsky)
Well apparently that is allowed if the players are on opposite sides of the ball. Well, Smith has played offense in the past and can't now because of this. And reports are that Crowell won't give it up.

Sure makes all these realignment scenarios look pretty crazy. Can we just drop the geographical reference in conference names?
