Down 20-6 in the fourth quarter to an unranked Pitt team, Notre Dame freshman QB Everett Golson pulled the improbable and led the Fighting Irish to a 29-26 triple overtime victory to keep ND undefeated.
With the close win ND dropped to 4th in the BCS standings with Oregon moving up to 3rd after a win at USC. #1 remains the same with Alabama pulling off another improbable win on the road at Death Valley with a last minute win after some questionable calls by LSU head coach Les Miles. KState remains at #2 with another decisive victory over Okie State. The game did have some consequences though with Heisman frontrunner Collin Klein going down with a concussion. Will he play this week vs TCU? That remains to be seen.
With only a month left to go we have 4 undefeated major power teams who could all make an argument for being in the BCS Title game. Two would be left out and would likely play each other in the Rose Bowl. If that is the case we might be looking at our first split National Title since 2003.
