Well, as usual it seems that no one in the PAC-10 plays defense for the full 60 minutes. ASU gave up over 190 yards on the ground, and you can't win giving up over 10 yards a carry to one guy.
Notre Dame SC is in two weeks, and I think it will be a good game. Giving Charlie Weiss two weeks to prepare could prove to be a very very bad thing for the Trojans.
Looking at the National picture as it stands now there are three or four teams that have a legit shot at making the championship game. Texas, USC, Virginia Tech, and Alabama. VA Tech and Alabama have extremely fast and agressive defenses, and their offenses are solid as they both run the ball well. Texas is very explosive with Vince Young at QB, but the defense looks to be a bit suspect in pass defense and the run seems to be fairly effective early in games.
SC is not as good as everyone is making them to be. Their defense is struggling to stop teams, and the offense takes some time to get in gear although that seems to be the case in the last two weeks primarily.
I don't like USC at all, and I really think they will lose at least once, if not twice. UCLA, NOTRE DAME, and CAL will get their chances and it should be quite interesting.
