Arizona State got demolished by UCLA but did manage to stay on the edge of the Top 25.

The Sun Devils' hope of a Pac-12 title game were up-ended.

Notes:

Arizona State could not handle the UCLA Bruins, although they gave away a boatload of chances, with 4 turnovers, extremely poor tackling, and special team mistakes. They clearly missed injured qb Taylor Kelly and the game quickly went to the Bruins once the mistakes rolled in.

South Carolina also lost over the weekend, but they were not as fortunate in the rankings. The only poll they stayed in was Kurt's but that was not enough to keep them ranked.

Mississippi State was a disagreed topic as well. They were ranked at 20, 18, 10, and 10. It has been a good start so far for them, but I still think they need to prove it with a few more wins before I'll have them leap frog anybody.
