Should Oklahoma defeat Iowa State, Bob Stoops would have 157 victories as Sooners coach, tying him with Barry Switzer for most in program history. Switzer seems fine with it, seeing as how he tweeted his congratulations to Stoops . . . on Friday, before the game had been played. Seeing as how “everyone beats ISU at home,” Switzer wrote, it’s okay to get the huzzahs out of the way early. Oklahoma has won 14 straight over the Cyclones and has only five losses all time to Iowa State.

Last season, Georgia handed Auburn a 38-0 loss, the first time the Tigers had been shut out at home since 2003. This year, things likely will be a little different. Behind quarterback Nick Marshall (a former Georgia defensive back), Auburn is averaging 320 rushing yards per game, third nationally and tops among BCS conferences. Since being pummeled by injuries and dropping out of the top 25 with losses to Missouri and Vanderbilt, Georgia has rebounded a bit with two wins, but they came over a Florida team that’s having a calamity of a season and FCS team Appalachian State. . . . Another team that has been slapped around by injuries is Texas, which hosts Oklahoma State. Running back Johnathan Gray and defensive tackle Chris Whaley suffered season-ending injuries last weekend against West Virginia, the latest additions to an injury list that already included quarterback David Ash and linebacker Jordan Hicks. Yet the Longhorns have won six straight, mostly over the dregs of the Big 12. Now Texas must close with the Cowboys, Texas Tech and Baylor.

The Los Angeles Coliseum will be full for USC-Stanford as the Trojans will play before a home sellout crowd for the first time this season. USC is 4-1 since firing Lane Kiffin, basking in a mini Era of Good Feelings under interim coach Ed Orgeron, who this week sent each member of the Trojans’ marching band a personal note thanking them for their support. You would think USC is still looking for a bigger name to replace Kiffin on a permanent basis, but a win over the Cardinal (which has won four straight over the Trojans) combined with the continued good PR would go a long way toward making Orgeron a viable candidate. Mississippi State hosts No. 1 Alabama, the sixth opponent currently in the top 18 the Bulldogs have faced this season.
