Nevada Stuns Fresno State

Yet another good example of why college football is FAR SUPERIOR to the NFL. Anything can happen on any given weekend and have a dramatic affect across the entire college football landscape. In addition to this one, Arkansas-LSU was close, Texas A&M hung around with Texas, Kansas upset Iowa State and Stanford is battling Notre Dame to the end in Palo Alto. Just amazing. I feel sorry for people who don't watch college football. It is by far the most exciting sport to watch whether your team is playing or not. I have a hard time getting excited about pro games that don't involve my teams but that's far from the truth when it comes to college football (and college hoops too).

Anyway, how do you go from almost knocking off Southern Cal to losing to Nevada? Chris Ault's Wolfpack played a great game and they are well deserving of being co-WAC champions with Boise State and likely earning a bowl bid as well but I just can't help but wonder how the Bulldogs let this slip away. Pat Hill always has team prepared for games like this. More and more signs continue to point towards Southern Cal as being ripe for an upset at the hands of UCLA. The Bruins have had nearly a month to prepare for the Trojans. If UCLA doesn't get USC next Saturday, Texas (or Penn State) will.
