COLLEGE FOOTBALL

The Bottom Ten

New Mexico holds the top spot, but Rice and Miami (Ohio) are lurking.

Tensions will be high among Bottom Ten teams this weekend, knowing that the first BCS standings will come out afterward. In this case, BCS stands for "Bowl Chump Series."

The No. 1 Lost Lobos of New Mexico are one of the main contenders for a place in the BT's projected reality show. One snag: NBC already stole the title "The Biggest Loser."

Elsewhere, officials at No. 6 Florida State denied rumors that Coach Bobby Bowden would step down and be replaced by Penn State's Joe Paterno.

Also, fans of the erratic No. 11 Cal Bears could be excused for wondering which Cal team will show up against UCLA on Saturday -- the Cal team that lost to Oregon, 42-3, a few weeks ago, or the Cal team that defeated Alabama, 13-0, in the 1938 Rose Bowl. Only time will tell.
