The biggest weekend of the college football season delivered a sensational Saturday that included three of the top six teams in The Associated Press poll getting beat.

No. 3 Alabama was beaten by No. 11 Mississippi, 23-17. No. 4 Oklahoma was beaten 37-33 at No. 25 TCU. And No. 6 Texas A&M was beaten 48-31 at No. 12 Mississippi State.

Add to that No. 2 Oregon's loss to Arizona on Thursday night and it's the first time since November 1990 that four of the top six teams in the AP poll have lost in the same weekend, according to STATS.

Oh, by the way, Arizona State beat No. 16 Southern California on a Hail Mary touchdown pass, and Northwestern topped No. 17 Wisconsin, too.

The purge at the top of the polls suddenly makes all that talk about how Florida State wasn't impressive enough while staying undefeated seem a little silly.

The top-ranked Seminoles (5-0) got an easy win Saturday, 43-3 against Wake Forest, and then got to see all the teams that were supposed to be contenders to their national title go down.
