SMU is susceptible to a running quarterback. And to backup runningbacks. And to any other kind of 'back, for that matter. Expect TCU to trot out Trey Boykin to have some fun with that at some point during the game in two weeks. Can't wait to re-take that Skillet.
Next week's opponent, Virginia, finally put Alabama transfer Phillip Sims in at quarterback in the fourth against Georgia Tech, when the 'Hoos were down by 35. Sims promptly threw for two scores.
Oklahoma State lost its starting QB early in the first quarter, but doesn't seem to have noticed. Word is he'll be back in time to face TCU. Not that it matters, apparently.
Iowa State opened a 28-0 lead on a 2-A team before things almost got interesting.
Baylor let things get very interesting before it finally found its rhythm, erased a 10-point half-time deficit to Sam Houston State, and then went on to win comfortably.
The Wildcats in Manhattan did not look like world-beaters this week, after routing Miami last week. Kansas State was only up by a single point late in the third before putting North Texas away. K-State only rushed for 143 yards.
