Mizzou coach Gary Pinkel said he never felt entirely safe during his team's 41-10 rout of Texas Tech on Saturday, because you have to be "scared of death" of the quick-strike ability of the Red Raiders' offense. Still, what the Tigers' defense accomplished was impressive: they were the first D to hold Red Raiders quarterback Graham Harrell under three touchdowns in a game this season (he had one) -- and they picked him off three times. Harrell also failed to break the 400-yard mark for only the second time in 2007. He still has 32 touchdown passes on the season, but his TD-to-INT ratio, which stood at 10.3-to-1 coming into the weekend, is now just 4.6-to-1.

Northern Illinois: Once a MAC powerhouse, now the cure for every opponent's ills. The Badgers used a meeting with 1-7 NIU to regain their swagger after losing back-to-back Big Ten games to Illinois and Penn State, and falling out of the AP poll. In a statement that was somewhat of a stretch, UW linebacker Jonathan Casillas told the the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, "After we lost to Penn State, this was the most important game of the year." The coaches' poll voters saw fit to put the Badgers back in the top 25 -- at No. 25 -- after the 44-3 victory, but are they really worthy of such a bump? The Huskies are the No. 116 team in this poll. It wasn't exactly a credibility enhancing win.

The Huskies are the only Big East team without a conference loss after knocking off Louisville in a Friday-night downpour, 21-17. But what does this latest victory mean in the big picture? "It means we've got six wins and we're bowl eligible," coach Randy Edsall told the Hartford Courant. "That's all that means. We've got six in the bank." It's still questionable whether UConn should be ranked in the top 25, considering that its other five wins came against Duke, Maine, Temple, Pitt and Akron. Neither the AP, nor the coaches, nor the Harris Poll voters were willing to anoint the Huskies as top-25 worthy this week; all three had them in the "others receiving votes" category.
