Marek Warszawki, Fresno Bee: Fresno State is undefeated and a potential Bowl Championship Series buster, but it can't sell out a home game in a metropolitan area with a population of nearly 1.1 million.
Jerry Brewer, Seattle Times: There goes the No. 20 national ranking. There goes the vibe of a 4-0 start. Washington is 4-3 after being routed by Arizona State, 53-24. The blame rests squarely on Steve Sarkisian.
David Climer, Tennessean: One thing is clear after Tennessee's 23-21 conquest of South Carolina: Butch Jones' Volunteer program is headed in the right direction.
Chuck Carlton, Dallas Morning News: Saturday's crushing win over Iowa State should silence any doubts about Baylor's national legitimacy.
Jenni Carlson, Oklahoman: Oklahoma's win on the road is great, but problems persist in Soonerville. Who would have thought the Sooners would need a trick play and a blocked punt to gain momentum against Big 12 cellar dweller Kansas?
Vahe Gregorian, Kansas City Star: Missouri became the first team to beat Georgia and Florida consecutively since 1992. Unless you believe the Tigers are incapable of handling prosperity, clinching the Southeastern Conference's East Division seems like the next step.
Ron Morris, Columbia State: Gone are Clemson's BCS title hopes. Essentially buried as well was any chance Tajh Boyd had of winning the Heisman Trophy. It was all dismantled by halftime.
Kevin Scarbinsky, AL.com: Auburn, despite giving up more yards (602) and points (41) than it had all season, became the first team to put a game in Johnny Manziel's hands at the end and take it away.
