As noted earlier, the Spartans celebrated homecoming by crowning Basanez king of East Lansing.

Virginia, apparently still celebrating last week’s upset of Florida State, left its offense in Charlottesville and dropped a 7-5 groaner to North Carolina.

And in the season’s ultimate head-scratcher, Stanford defrocked once-formidable Arizona State, the team which nearly knocked out the top-ranked Trojans (38-28) a month ago. The lowly Cardinal, who lost earlier this season to the Fightin’ Sliderules of Division II UC-Davis, led Arizona State 45-14 before granting fourth-quarter quarter.

The transitive property, of course, solves all our BCS issues: Clearly, USC should face UC-Davis in the Rose Bowl.
