Florida State upsets #2 Boston College 27-17

Taken from ESPN

Geno Hayes returned Matt Ryan's third interception for a 38-yard touchdown with 1:10 to play on Saturday night to help Florida State beat second-ranked Boston College 27-17, ending the Eagles' run at an unbeaten season and shaking up the BCS standings yet again.

With the loss by BC (8-1, 4-1 Atlantic Coast Conference), only Ohio State, Kansas and Hawaii remain unbeaten. A handful of one-loss teams -- LSU, Oregon and Oklahoma among them -- had their hopes for reaching the Bowl Championship Series title game aided by Florida State. LSU will probably take second-place behind Ohio State in the BCS standings when they come out Sunday.

The No. 2 team in The Associated Press Top 25 lost three consecutive weeks before Boston College took over the second spot on Oct. 21 and held on with a comeback victory over Virginia Tech last week. Southern California, California and South Florida were the others to lose as No. 2.

Ryan finished 25-for-53 for two touchdowns and 415 yards -- his fourth career 400-yard game, tying Doug Flutie for the most in school history.

This has become a theme in College Football this season. There have been some many upsets that it is hard to keep track. Now the question becomes who will be #2 next week? Some people say it should be LSU, while others say it should be Oregon. I think it should be Oregon. They just beat Arizona State handing them their first loss of the season. It was a win over a top 5 team, and a win that should propel them to #2 in the rankings.
