The streak is over!

Duke has finally won. The Bule Devils no longer hold the nation's longest losing streak. That honor is now held by Florida International. In the major conferences only Syracuse and Notre Dame are winless.

Let's see how Syracuse does against Miami (OH) in two weeks before we annoint them the worst BCS team. At least they have been losing to other BCS schools. Meanwhile, Minnesota has lost to a MAC and Sun Belt team and the only win was against a MAC team in overtime. By my count, Minnesota is clearly the worst BCS team so far this year.

There is really no reason for me to comment on Notre Dame, since everyone else already has, but let me say this: If Notre Dame wants to have any chance at a Bowl, they have to win 2 of the next 3 games (Purdue, Michigan St., and UCLA). They don't look like a team that can beat Boston College or USC so in order to avoid 7 losses, they have to win 2 of the next 3 games.

By the way, what's up with Boston College's schedule? They started with 3 ACC games, (all wins by the way), and now have non-conference games against Army, UMass, and Bowling Green. The way the team is playing, I think they'd rather keep playing ACC games.

Conference Cup
Wins vs BCS/ND, Losses vs BCS/ND, Non BCS Losses
4-3-0 SEC
7-4-3 Big 10
5-3-3 Pac10
4-5-0 Big East
5-5-4 Big 12
3-5-3 ACC
0-3-0 Notre Dame

West Virginia beat Maryland
Michigan St. beat Pittsburgh
Illinois beat Syracuse
Iowa St. beat Iowa
Ohio St. beat Washington
Michigan beat Notre Dame
Kentucky beat Louisville
USC beat Nebraska
Duke beat Northwestern
Florida St. beat Colorado

BCS Losses to MWC
Utah beat UCLA
New Mexico beat Arizona

Really Bad Losses
Florida Atlantic beat Minnesota
Troy beat Oklahoma St.

Bad week for the Big East. Not only does Auburn lose again, reducing the impact of USF's win, but Lousville and Pittsburgh also lost.
