Friday Night Twilight Zone

Friday was clearly not a good day to be leading at halftime. Alabama ran out to a 24-7 halftime lead against Auburn and lost 28-27. Arizona went into the break up 19-14 against Oregon and were steamrolled after the intermission 48-29. Finally, Boise State and their 24 game winning streak led 24-7 over Nevada after 30 minutes, but Nevada came back and pulled off the stunning upset 34-31 in overtime. Winning streak over, title hopes dashed. So now we're down to just 3 undefeated teams, each with one game to go. Here's how it looks the rest of way:

#1 Oregon (11-0) travels to Corvalis to take on Oregon State (5-5) in the Civil War. The last time these two teams met, the Ducks pulled out a 37-33 win at home. The Beavers last win in this matchup was a 38-31 overtime win in 2007.

#2 Auburn (12-0) goes to the Georgia Dome for the SEC Championship game against Steve Spurrier and South Carolina (8-3). These two met earlier in the year at Auburn with the Tigers winning 35-27.

#3 TCU (11-0) finishes their season today as they take on New Mexico. The Lobos are just 1-10 this season giving TCU the easiest path to an undefeated season.
