It goes without saying that Stanford had a very impressive performance on defense Saturday. Holding the Ducks to 14 points through regulation and an overtime is nothing short of spectacular. But the Cardinal were outdone by Vanderbilt, who completely destroyed Tennessee and sent Dooley packing.
It is an indication of just how bad the Wake Forest offense is that Notre Dame gets the shutout but placed eight this week, behind two SEC schools that played FCS opponents. And, in the greatest shocker of all, Baylor, the worst defense in college football (and I'm only exaggerating a little) finds itself in the top 25 after keeping Klein in check.
