With their point-a-minute defense leading the way, New Mexico's Lost Lobos took over the Bottom Ten lead. The Lobos, edged 14-56 by Utah, have allowed 180 points in three games. However, they face a threat to the top spot Saturday when they play equally inept Nevada Las Vegas (0-3), ranked No. 6. It's a must-lose game for both teams. No. 7 North Carolina, which had 12 players sit out a 24-30 loss to Georgia Tech because of an NCAA investigation, announced it's switching to six-man football.

Reporting from Las Vegas -- Dewayne Dedmon's face belonged on a milk carton in USC's previous four games. The 7-foot sophomore had all but vanished from the box scores, turning Coach Kevin O'Neill's lofty hype that Dedmon was a future NBA lottery pick into a foolhardy forecast. Against Nevada Las Vegas on Friday, Dedmon finally made an impact — only not the kind he wanted. Showcasing the inexperience of a player who began playing organized basketball at 18, Dedmon drew a game-turning technical foul in the second half that keyed UNLV's 66-55 win in the Las Vegas Invitational.
