The last two weeks of the college football season have separated contenders from pretenders and helped set the field for the national championship race.
Kenjon Barner ran for 198 yards and two touchdowns despite leaving the game for a time with an injury and No. 5 Oregon defeated No. 16 Oregon State 48-24 in the Civil War on Saturday, keeping alive the Ducks' hopes for a spot in the Pac-12 title game and even an outside chance at the national championship.
No. 3 Florida lived up to its surprising BCS ranking by thrashing a South Carolina team that appeared to be a contender in the SEC.
At this point in the season, it looks as if the rest of the country is competing to be the team that plays No. 1 Alabama for the BCS championship in January.
LaMichael James ran for 142 yards before leaving with what appeared to be a left elbow injury, and No. 9 Oregon beat Oregon State 49-21 Saturday to clinch the Pac-12 North and a spot in the conference's first championship game.
No. 2 Alabama (8-0, 5-0 SEC) vs. No. 1 LSU (8-0, 5-0), 8 p.m. (CBS).
Another wild ending and another Auburn victory.
As far as Wisconsin's players are concerned, a Pac-12 opponent is automatically dangerous _ even if the team in question, Oregon State, is coming off a head-scratching loss, unsettled at quarterback and might be missing its new star running back.
