STARS  
Shaun Alexander, Alabama Had his second big rushing day in a row, picking up 206 yards on 20 carries in 'Bama's 32-7 win over Vanderbilt. Alexander has now scored eight touchdowns in two games.
Darren Davis, Iowa State Rushed for 244 yards and a touchdown as Iowa State beat in-state rival Iowa 27-9, the first win for the Cyclones in this matchup in 16 years.
Devin West, Missouri, Ran for a school-record 319 yards to help lead the No. 25 Tigers to a 41-23 victory over Kansas. Ten of his 33 carries gained 10 yards or more, including runs of 55, 45 and 33 yards.
UPSET SPECIAL  
Shake up the ACC N.C. State picked off Florida State's Chris Weinke six times in handing the No. 2 Seminoles a 26-7 defeat, just the second loss for FSU in 50 conference games since joining the ACC.
RECORD-SETTER  
Martin Gramatica, Kansas State Booted a 65-yard field goal, the longest in NCAA history not using a tee, in Kansas State's 73-7 romp over Northern Illinois.
RANKINGS SHAKER  
Wolverines down and out Michigan dropped its second straight game, a 38-28 loss to Syracuse that wasn't as close as the score suggests. The Wolverines are the first defending national champ to start 0-2 since Penn State started 0-3 in 1983.
QUOTE OF THE DAY  
Wisconsin's Ron Dayne, who saw his first action of the season in the Badgers' 49-0 win over Ohio. "From the start of the game I felt real good. I got my first TD and ran over a guy and felt I was back. I love running over guys."
