ESPN calls this Week 8 of the season. It is a time to look back and see that LSU and Rutgers are both below where we expected. After sneaking past Arkansas, UK is definitely ahead - 2 wins from a bowl? But it is hard to believe that only one of the four teams is in the Sagarin Top 25.
Looking ahead it is still possible for LSU to defend their National Championship, but they'll need some help and some better play. Looking ahead, even Wisconsin has a chance at a bowl, statistically speaking.
