FROM THE LOCKER ROOM

"This is the most embarrassed I've been after a football game." -- Colorado State quarterback Pete Thomas, on the loss to BYU

COACH-SPEAK

"We got outplayed, we got outcoached and we got outclassed. I did not see this coming." -- Colorado State's Steve Fairchild

THE WRITTEN WORD

"Let me make a suggestion, if you will, to all the coaches and Harrises who vote in the BCS polls: Watch the games. For once. Don't just read the scores as they crawl by on the bottom of the TV screen." -- Fort Worth (Texas) Star-Telegram columnist Gil LeBreton, on Texas Christian being passed by Boise State in the two Bowl Championship Series polls following the Horned Frogs' 40-35 victory over San Diego State

THIS WEEK'S TOP GAME

No. 25 Utah at San Diego State. The Utes will try to bounce back from stinging losses to TCU and Notre Dame, but will face the conference's most-improved team.
