Texas A&M takes College Football Belt: The true championship of college football is back in Texas after the Aggies of Texas A&M walloped the Razorbacks of Arkansas 45-24. The belt has now been resident in the Lone Star State for 101 of the last 103 weeks. This is A&M's second title reign after holding it for seven weeks in 1998, and its first reign as a member of the SEC. A&M's first defense will be next weekend in Columbia against permanent cross-division rival South Carolina.

Les Miles out at LSU: Louisiana State University has fired football head coach Les Miles and offensive coordinator Cam Cameron after a loss to divisional rival Auburn dropped the Tigers to 2-2. Defensive line coach Ed Orgeron (former Ole Miss coach and former interim USC coach) will serve as interim head coach for the remainder of the season.

MACtion 'beats' Oklahoma State, but not with casualties: The Central Michigan Chippewas outscored the Oklahoma State Cowboys 30-27 on one of those great Hail Mary-lateral combos, but only because the officiating crew mistakenly gave them an untimed down after OSU QB Mason Rudolph committed an intentional grounding penalty on 4th down with no time left on the clock. The entire on-field crew (provided by the Chips' Mid-American Conference) has been suspended for two weeks, and the replay crew (provided by the Cowboys' Big 12 Conference) has been suspended for two weeks and will not be allowed to officiate a bowl game this season.

Packers Returner Ingeniously Exploits Out-of-Bounds Rule

Randall Cobb did it four years ago.

It's a dumb rule that I can't believe the competition committee hasn't "clarified".

Les Miles out at LSU

Petrino might be dumb enough to try his shtick at a top-flight program one more time, but I think he's realized that it's pretty nice being the big dog at Louisville, where he'll be able to coast for at least a decade on "Remember when I walloped the shit out of Florida State?"

Tony Romo is 80-53 with the Cowboys since he became the starting QB. In that same time, all other QBs with the Cowboys are 1-14.

Congratulations to Arkansas, the new holders of the lineal college football championship. This is the Razorbacks' third reign (one in the 1960s, or the era). Barring a major upset by Texas State, looks like Alabama will reunify the fake playoff "championship" with the true title some time in October.
