Sure, Boise State and TCU continued keeping up their BCS-busting appearances, while Oregon, Florida and Nebraska each displayed consistency issues that will make fans feel a little queasy heading into the hearts of their conference schedules. But it's Texas that turned out to be the pretender of the bunch after being shot down the rankings by UCLA's aptly named "pistol" offense.
