Week 11 started with a boom when Oregon lost to Stanford and Baylor blew out Oklahoma on Thursday Night Football. The rest of the weekend finished relatively quiet, not many surprises as far as BCS polls go. Here are some highlights..

#2 Florida State @ Wake Forest – Final Score: 59-3

The Seminoles came ready to play, with no sign of an emotional hang over after the Miami game last week. Out of Wake Forest’s 19 drives, only 4 of them went for over 6 plays or more. Wake Forest turned the ball over  7 time times and punted 9 times. Over all, despite a pedestrian game by Heisman Contender Jameis Winston, Florida State nearly shut out the Deacons in their own home.

#13 LSU @ #1 Alabama – Final Score: 17-38

Perhaps the biggest rivalry in the college football right now, this game started out like two heavy weights going blow for blow. LSU’s mistakes in the first quarter surprisingly didn’t leave them in a large hole. It wasn’t until the second half when LSU’s defense seemingly left the building when they allowed Bama to waste 17 and a half minutes on just 3 drives, all of which resulted in touchdowns.

#23 Notre Dame @ Pitt -Final Score: 21-28

“You can’t start winning until you stop losing,” is Brian Kelly’s mantra for Notre Dame.  It also explains Notre Dame’s late loss to Pitt last night. While Notre Dame led the Pitt through three quarters of the game, but tripped themselves up in the forth quarter with two interceptions on back-to-back possessions. That was the window of opportunity the Pitt Panthers needed to take control of the game. After a long interception return by saftey Ray Vinopal, the Panthers were 5 yards away from the end zone and victory.

#16 Fresno State @ Wyoming – Final Score: 48-10

The BCS Buster dream is still alive. Despite not scoring the first quarter, Fresno State had this game well in hand. QB Derek Carr finished the game with 360 yards and 4 tds and running backs Josh Quezada and Marteze Waller  each had a touch down in the Fresno State victory.
