Alabama and Oregon: College Football Review Week 13

| by Sports Nickel

What a week. We very nearly had a monumental upset atop the BCS standings, but Alabama couldn’t hang on against Auburn. Oregon dismantled Arizona, but still dropped to #2 in the BCS Standings. And of course, Boise State fell to Nevada in overtime- a shocking result that created quite a ruckus among those who don’t believe that the Broncos ever belonged in the National Championship discussion. 

Boise’s loss was significant on many levels. It ended the nation’s longest winning streak at 24 games.  It ended Boise’s shot at a BCS berth this season. It fueled the argument that smaller schools shouldn’t be compared to the power programs due to weaker schedules.

But it also opened the door for TCU, a fellow non-AQ team that is about to clinch a spot in the Rose Bowl against Wisconsin. So one buster’s demise is another’s salvation…

Here are our week 13 numbers:
