College football's top two teams both lose
 

College football's Bowl Championship Series was thrown into chaos on Saturday when the nation's top two teams both suffered their first loss of the season. Top-ranked Kansas State (10-1) was crushed 52-24 by lowly Baylor (5-5), ending its hopes of becoming national champion. And the second-ranked Oregon Ducks (10-1), who boast one of the country's most exciting offenses, were stifled by a surprisingly resilient Stanford (9-2), losing 17-14 in overtime. Now, undefeated Notre Dame is likely to rise to the top of the college rankings, and mighty Alabama, which suffered its first loss of the season just a week ago, has renewed hope of playing for the national title.
