In Friday's Quick Slant I mentioned that the Bedlam game was one of the games that most professional (and some amateur) college football prognosticators and pundits thought would be critical to determining who would play for the BCS Championship.
Well, there is still a chance it might determine who plays for the crystal football in January, but some of the shine may have been taken off of the game with Oklahoma's stunning loss to Texas Tech at home on Saturday night.
Wisconsin also spit the bit, losing on an Hail Mary pass to the Michigan State Spartans.
Key games to watch: Michigan State at Nebraska, Oklahoma at Kansas State, Stanford at USC and Clemson at Georgia Tech.
Here's where the season starts to get crazy. I'm rooting for chaos.
