In a setback for the hopes of college football's mid-major conferences, No. 10 Texas Christian lost its first game last night, falling to Southern Mississippi, 40-28. The Horned Frogs didn't go easily, rebounding from a 31-6 deficit to close within 34-28 with three minutes to go. A fumble by quarterback Brandon Hassell ended their hopes. The loss dropped the Horned Frogs to 10-1 (7-1 in Conference USA) and left Oklahoma as the nation's only undefeated team. The Golden Eagles, who got three touchdown passes from Dustin Almond, are 8-3 and 7-0.

DeMarco Murray ran for two touchdowns, Ryan Broyles returned a punt 88 yards for a score, and Oklahoma (7-5, 5-3 Big 12) knocked No. 11 Oklahoma State (9-3, 6-2) out of contention for its first appearance in the Bowl Championship Series with a 27-0 thumping yesterday in Norman.

With representatives of the Fiesta and Orange bowls watching, Oklahoma State fell completely flat.

Three weeks ago, Leonard Fournette had the Heisman Trophy in his grasp. The Louisiana State sophomore was a lock to win college football's most prestigious award, as much a certainty as Donald Trump saying something outrageous at his next campaign stop. But then, the season continued. After a first half that saw him rush for more than 200 yards in three consecutive games, Fournette has been unable to find the holes. He gained just 31 yards on 19 carries in the marquee Nov. 7 matchup against Alabama - a 30-14 loss - and managed 91 yards in last week's loss to Arkansas.

DID SOMEBODY mention a possible hangover? Well, yes. Temple football coach Matt Rhule, as a matter of fact, three days after his 23rd-ranked Owls (7-1, 4-0 American) came within minutes of beating No. 8 Notre Dame (7-1) in what was only the biggest moment in program history. "I don't know that our team is over it yet, and that's a scary thought," said Rhule, whose team will play Friday night at Southern Methodist (1-7, 0-4) as a 12-point favorite. "Life moves on. Nobody cares what happened, or why. We'll find out a lot about our guys this week.

PENN STATE (7-2, 4-1 Big Ten), whose losses were at once-beaten Temple and at top-ranked Ohio State, toyed with visiting Illinois (4-4, 1-3), 39-0. It was a season high for points for the Nittany Lions, and the most they've scored since Sept. 26 (37-21 against San Diego State). Christian Hackenberg (21-for-29) threw for 266 yards and two touchdowns (both in the first 11 minutes) and also caught a 14-yard TD from running back Nick Scott that made it 22-zip early in the third period.

1. Ohio State (5-0): Beat Indiana, 34-27. Saturday: vs. Maryland. If you have that running back, it might not matter who's the quarterback. Won at Maryland last year, 52-24. 2. Michigan State (5-0): Beat Purdue, 24-21. Saturday: at Rutgers. Hasn't looked as imposing since beating Oregon. Beat Rutgers last year at home, 45-3. 3. Texas Christian (5-0): Beat Texas, 50-7. Saturday: at Kansas State. OK, so maybe Texas isn't Texas Tech. Beat Kansas State by 21 last year at home. 4. Baylor (4-0)

Ajirotutu, 27, spent most of his career in San Diego and has been a productive special-teams player. Both players were in Philadelphia on Tuesday. Biggers, who played for Tampa Bay during the first three seasons of his career before spending two years in Washington, is 6 feet and 185 pounds.

TWO YEARS removed from a perfect regular season, it almost seems as if Louisiana State has been reduced to playing the role of Fredo Corleone in its own division. Or maybe Larry from the Three Stooges. For only the third time in a decade the Tigers weren't ranked in the preseason top 10. It hasn't inpeded them before. In 2003, following an 8-5 season, they started at No. 14 but went 13-1 and got Nick Saban his first national title. Also the program's first in 45 years. In 2010 they were 16th, coming off 9-4, and finished 11-2 to end up eighth.

The conference reshuffle It's a new college basketball season, and we know you've done your homework to become familiar with teams that moved into different conferences. Virginia Commonwealth and Butler were two great finds for the Atlantic Ten. West Virginia is out of the Big East and into the Big 12, which lost Missouri and Texas A&M to the SEC but gained Texas Christian. Nevada and Fresno State shifted to the Mountain West. And you also have teams marking their farewell seasons - Syracuse and Pittsburgh in the Big East, Temple in the A-10, and the Conference USA quartet of Memphis, Central Florida, Southern Methodist, and Houston, which will join the Owls in the Big East.
