Last week's winners: They were Adam Wade and Randall Westfall, who each went 6-0 and missed the KU score each by a combined 10 points.
A Notre Dame football fan had a dream and this is how it went:
Fed up with football coach Charlie Weis, who displays all the charm of a toothache, all the humility of Narcissus and lately all the coaching acumen of Gerry Faust, Notre Dame officials approach Weis after this season and inform him he will be demoted to offensive coordinator, and will work for new head coach Jon Gruden.
Insulted at the idea of being treated like anything but a super genius, Weis walks away from his contract and enables Notre Dame to throw that money and then some at Gruden, the coach of the Tampa Bay Bucs. It never hurts to dream.
This weekend's Big 12 games:
Baylor 24, Texas A&M 20: Baylor has the better quarterback (Blake Szymanski has 14 touchdown passes, Stephen McGee two), and the Aggies have the home-field advantage. An upset of this magnitude would bring national attention to Szymanski.
Oklahoma 41, Colorado 10: Sooners redshirt freshman quarterback Sam Bradford has so many explosive options and has the talent and savvy to use them well. He can hand the ball to either DeMarco Murray or Allen Patrick or he can use his accurate arm (78 percent) to find Juanquin Iglesias or Malcolm Kelly. The OU defense makes sure Bradford gets back onto the field quickly. Opponents average 1.3 yards per carry.
Nebraska 42, Iowa State 20: The Cornhuskers have had serious problems stopping the pass and the run, which is why the Cyclones' penchant to spill the football will come in handy. Iowa State already has committed 11 turnovers. Give the ball back to Nebraska's explosive offense generall results in quick scores.
Texas 31, Kansas State 13: The real Colt McCoy - the guy who had such a strong freshman season - finally stood up against Rice and completed 20 of 29 passes for 333 yards and three touchdowns.
Texas Tech 55, Northwestern State 20: Based on his comments about his team's performance in a loss at Oklahoma State, Red Raiders coach Mike Leach pretty much hates his team, but there's a lot to love about quarterback Graham Harrell, who has thrown 19 touchdown passes and two picks. Oklahoma State 44, Sam Houston State 24: Rhett Bomar, the former Oklahoma quarterback, is psyched to play against his old rival OSU. Bomar has thrown eight touchdown passes and has been picked off twice. Meanwhile, Cowboys coach Mike Gundy still hasn't explained clearly why quarterback Bobby Reid has been demoted to second string.
