HE SAID WHAT?

“I feel like every week we have something to prove.” — Texas Tech wide receiver Michael Crabtree after his team beat Oklahoma State 56-20

WEEKEND REWIND » IN CASE YOU MISSED IT

Texas Tech, holy cow — Who needs defense? The second-ranked Red Raiders made quick and efficient work of Mike Gundy's Oklahoma State. Yes, it really was 56-20. And Graham Harrell is the clear front-runner for the Heisman after posting a 40-for-50 night with 456 yards and, oh yeah, six touchdowns. Tim Tebow and Colt McCoy, your door prizes are ready. Michael Crabtree, next year is your year.

Pink is the latest upset — No. 3 Penn State falls victim to Iowa's famed pink visitors locker room ... and backup kicker Daniel Murray, losing 24-23. Dashed are Joe Paterno's national title hopes, but at least the Big Ten won't get a spot in the BCS title game. And if Alabama and Texas Tech keep rolling, that will be one heck of a shootout.

Titans stay undefeated — On a good day, Texas Tech could give the Titans a game, but Tennessee remains the NFL's only unbeaten team. Another ho-hum 289-yard day for Kerry Collins and a 21-14 win over the Bears.

TWT FIVE » LACKLUSTER SEASON FINALES

1. Sprint Cup — Sure, the last 10 races of the season provide something special to drive for, but Jimmie Johnson has it just about wrapped up with two races left.

2. PGA — Yes, the season ended Sunday with Davis Love III winning at Disney World. What, is November not golf season for you?

3. Tennis — It's called the Masters Cup, and it's ongoing. If a tennis tournament happens and it gets shown on tape delay on Comcast SportsNet, is it actually happening?

4. Horse racing — OK, calling the Belmont Stakes a season finale isn't quite fair, but horse racing's Triple Crown is exciting only when a horse has a shot to win all three. If not, the TV ratings are usually quite dreadful.

5. College football — This is simple: no playoff, teams off for a month, way more hype than the game itself deserves.
