Washington has one thing to be thankful for this Thanksgiving: Its season is nearly over.
After notching a clutch 13-16 loss to Washington State, the Huskies pawed (0-11) their way closer to a Bottom Ten title, but their work isn’t over yet. There’s still another game to mess up – against California.
Meanwhile, threatening gestures were being made by the mysterious SMUs, who have taken over No. 2 on the strength, or rather weakness, of a shocking 10-36 beating by the University of Texas at El Pinpoint Paso earlier this month.
Elsewhere, Arkansas (4-7) crept up to No. 8 under the leadership of high-priced, former Falcons coach Bobby Petrino, who proved he can lose at both the college and pro levels with equal ease.
And, finally, a Bottom Ten welcome to the No. 9 Fightin’ Rash (6-5), the first Notre Dame team ever defeated by a school with eight losses (Syracuse).
