In other developments, Penn State's offense lays an egg in Ann Arbor. The Nittany Lions lose to Michigan 9-14 and drop out of the Top Ten. Boston College supplants PSU in the Top Ten. Florida escapes Mississippi with a close win. Wisconsin emerges victorious but for the second straight week make things difficult for itself. The Badgers drop down a notch.
Week 5 is a good week for football games. The marquee matchup involves two high-octane Pac-10 offenses as Cal heads to a hostile Autzen Stadium to play Oregon. On Thursday night South Florida hosts West Virginia. Other noteworthy contests include Alabama at Florida State and Michigan State at Wisconsin.

Dropped out: #9 Penn State
Another remarkable effort by Darren McFadden goes for naught as Arkansas suffers a second consecutive loss. Run-DMC is knocked out of the Heisman Hopefuls, though no fault of his own. If the Razorbacks get back on track, expect Darren to return to the discussion. Colt Brennan did not play due to injury. He flip-flops with Pat White for the top spot. Tim Tebow enters the top five but it's still a wide open race. Oregon QB Dennis Dixon has a chance for national recognition if he plays well and leads the Ducks to victory over Cal.
|Pat White ||QB ||Jr. ||West Virginia |
|Colt Brennan ||QB||Sr.||Hawaii |
|Andre' Woodson||QB||Sr.||Kentucky |
|Steve Slaton ||RB||Jr.||West Virginia |
|Tim Tebow ||QB||So.||Florida |
