With an untested Ohio State squad in Seattle on Saturday, the Huskies had a chance to sink the Big Ten's reputation for good. Michigan's loss to Appalachian State started the damage. The Wolverines' loss to Oregon made it worse. Then Wisconsin played far too close against UNLV and the Citadel, Iowa lost to Iowa State, Minnesota lost to Florida Atlantic, and Northwestern ended Duke's 22-game losing streak. Washington couldn't put the nail in the coffin, though, letting a 7-3 lead at halftime turn into a 33-14 loss. It booted the Huskies out of SI.com's Top 25 ... and made an OSU team that was picked to finish third in the Big Ten suddenly look like it has a realistic shot at the Rose Bowl.

Boilermakers QB Curtis Painter, who led the nation in interceptions in 2006, has continued his miraculous run atop the mythical most-touchdown-passes-without-a-pick standings. Painter passed for three more scores Saturday against Central Michigan, bringing his 2007 total to 13. Tied for a distant second place are Clemson's Cullen Harper and Kansas' Todd Reesling, both of whom have 10 touchdowns against zero interceptions through Week 3.

If you're looking for the key to the Bearcats' 3-0 start -- other than that they've played only one good team, Oregon State -- it's the turnover battle. Cincy leads the nation in both takeaways (17) and turnover margin (plus-13). Those stats represent a 180-degree change from 2006, when the Bearcats ranked 90th in the country in turnover margin. They finished that season at minus-6 takeaways, or minus-0.46 per game. Seeing that Cincy still managed to finish 8-5 in that campaign, a nine- or 10-win season (counting a bowl victory) could be within reach in '07.
