Maybe the last season of the Bowl Championship Series was supposed to end this way. There are four undefeated contenders left, three weekends to play and only two spots for the Jan. 6 title game at the Rose Bowl. One-loss Stanford, which muddled up the standings last week with its No. 4 ranking ahead of undefeated Baylor, lost a second game to clear out the top four spots. Alabama struggled to a 20-7 victory over Mississippi State on Saturday but remained affixed on top in Sunday's latest BCS standings with an average of .991.

A keeper at an Oregon sanctuary for big cats was killed over the weekend, and sanctuary officials hinted Sunday that she may have been violating safety rules when she was attacked by one of the animals. WildCat Haven Sanctuary officials said Renee Radziwon-Chapman had been a head keeper for eight years at the Sherwood, Ore., facility in the Portland suburbs. She was found dead in an enclosure Saturday evening. KGW News in Portland reported that she was killed by a cougar. Clackamas County Sheriff's Sgt. Robert Wurpes told the Associated Press that the animal suspected of killing Radziwon-Chapman was locked in a cage after the attack.

Hindsight is 20/20. Stanford "could" beat Oregon. Really went out on a limb. Shower yourself in Gatorade podcast. Kyle Ahlf I was asked in my weekly Monday podcast on latimes.com whether I would be shocked if Stanford beat Oregon. I said "no. " Stanford beat Oregon last year, I said, and was the defending Pac-12 and Rose Bowl champion. Why would it be a shock? And I sort of picked Stanford to beat Oregon in August when I made Stanford my preseason No. 1. Yet, after Thursday night's ESPN broadcast, analyst Jesse Palmer said no one thought Stanford could win. I suggested Palmer should have called my home.

Those who have waited years to see how Oregon's lightning-quick offense might match up against old-school Alabama in a national title game are going to have to wait at least another year. Stanford, though, might have already provided the answer. For a second consecutive year, with the same man-powered game plan, Stanford knocked Oregon out of the national title race. Last November it was a three-point, Saturday night squeaker in Eugene. This November it was the No. 6 Cardinal toppling the No. 2 Ducks with a 26-20 win on Thursday night at Stanford Stadium.
