The Blue Devils have yet to reach rock bottom in these rankings -- overtaking Florida International or Buffalo for that honor would be a tall task -- but have done their best to hold on to the nation's longest losing streak. The Dukies' skid hit 21 on Saturday after a 45-14 loss to Connecticut. After teasing the home crowd in Durham by hanging within four points of the Huskies, at 18-14, in the third quarter, the Blue Devils allowed the visitors to score the game's final 37 points. There was one, small victory within the loss: The 14 points Duke scored were 14 more than they posted in last year's opener ... against I-AA Richmond.

The Panthers could take some solace in their 59-0 loss at Penn State on Saturday: At least they weren't the team that had to help clean up Beaver Stadium afterwards. The Nittany Lions returned to their home turf before 8 a.m. Sunday as part of a team-wide punishment for off-the-field incidents during the summer. According to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, the players spent nearly 90 minutes cleaning a portion of the stadium, but not the whole thing, which seats 107,282. Coach Joe Paterno supervised but did not participate for fear of becoming the focus of the cleanup publicity. "For me to go out there and take a broom -- you know -- pictures will be all over and you won't even know the kids did it," he said. "It'll be Paterno, back to where he should be, sweeping."
