Once upon a time, as former NFL head coach Jim Mora so eloquently put it, “Playoffs?!?!?!?!” We are counting down the days till we no longer have to deal with our dear old friend, the BCS.

The wild weekend that saw Kansas State and Oregon both lose provided a big lift for Notre Dame and a big break for Alabama, who got back into the hunt and moved up to second in the PSR Top 20.

The Fighting Irish host Wake next week, while Kansas State faces a dangerous Baylor team. Oregon, though, has the stiffest test when Stanford visits.
