Let's not waste any more time and get right to the teams who had performances to forget on Saturday:

Baylor Bears (L 49-17 at Oklahoma State)

Most of us thought that Baylor losing was a possibility given the opponent. But, most people didn't see this type of shellacking coming. The Bears trailed by as much as 39 points and only managed a whopping 17 points for the game. That's quite a change from their usual 60+ point outings. Of course, not only did their scoring average take a hit, but their national championship hopes did as well. 

Texas A&M Aggies (L 34-10 at LSU)

We were beginning to wonder whether or not anyone could stop Johnny Manziel and the Texas A&M offense. Well, Les Miles and LSU did just that, holding the Heisman winner to just 224 yards through the air and forcing two interceptions in the process. The Aggies pretty much got dominated from start to finish, which resulted in the first time this season that they were held under 40 points.

Oregon Ducks (L 42-16 at Arizona)

So much for Oregon doing anything with its season after the loss to Stanford a few weeks ago. The player comments about not caring about playing in the Rose Bowl certainly make sense now since the Ducks laid an egg against Arizona on Saturday. It was a completely uninspired performance, but luckily for Oregon, they get the next team on the list on Friday. So, it should be a better week than this one was.

Oregon State Beavers (L 69-27 vs. Washington)

Speaking of uninspired performances, Oregon State was just awful in this game. The fourth straight loss for the Beavers was their worst of the season, as Washington led 62-6 at one point. Keep in mind that this is the same Oregon State team that was 6-1 before the downward spiral began with a close loss to Stanford. This week's performance though was just plain embarrassing. 

Florida Gators (L 26-20 vs. Georgia Southern)

Remember that Florida team that started 4-1? Yeah, me either. Because the Gators are now 4-7, losers of six straight. But this weekend's loss to an above average FCS team in Georgia Southern was undoubtedly the worst of them all. It will also be the game that all but officially ended Will Muschamp's tenure as the head coach of the Gators. The competition takes a bit of a step up this week with second-ranked Florida State coming to town. But hey, they're certainly no Georgia Southern, right?
