The Utes are making a strong push for the title of Nation's Most Schizophrenic Team, routing UCLA 44-6 one week, then getting shut out by UNLV, 27-0, the next. Where did it go wrong for Utah? Pretty much everywhere, if you listen to head coach Kyle Whittingham (via the Deseret Morning News): "We went from playing well in all three phases last week to playing poorly in all three phases this week. There wasn't a phase in the game that we were proficient in. We turned the ball over. We had costly penalties in the first half. We didn't tackle well on defense."

Syracuse's win over Louisville, coupled with the Irish's latest collapse -- this time against Michigan State -- means Notre Dame is now the only team amongst any of the BCS conferences or independents without a win. Irish coach Charlie Weis is now looking for consolation in strange places: After Saturday's 31-14 loss, he said his boys did enough in the first half so that "at least we looked like a football team out there." Shiny golden helmets and iconic blue jerseys tend to have that effect ... but looking like a football team, and having the offensive firepower to avoid starting 0-8 -- and finishing any better than 4-8 -- are two greatly different things.
