On Sept. 5, while Florida feasted on Charleston Southern and Texas opened with Louisiana-Monroe, the Oklahoma Sooners played a strong BYU team on a neutral field. That's when Sam Bradford sprained his shoulder while being sacked, an injury that derailed OU's title hopes. A week later, while Florida annihilated Troy and Texas blew out Wyoming, Southern California played at Ohio State. That's when freshman Matt Barkley was himself sacked and hurt. He was forced to sit out the next game, which the Trojans lost. Now they're behind the national title 8-ball.
