Melina Vastola-USA TODAY Sports

The Seminoles are on pace to face Alabama for the national championship once again.

The final month of the regular season is upon us, and there was no shortage of news on Sunday as teams reflect on their Week 10 performances. Let's dig right in to everything that made headlines, including yet another BCS shakeup and a high-profile coach refuting USC rumors.

For the third week in a row, there's a different team at No. 2 in the BCS standings. Following an impressive win over Miami, the Florida State Seminoles have jumped Oregon.

Alabama remained No. 1 after having the week off, while Ohio State held firm at No. 4. Stanford moved up a spot to round out the top five. The full BCS rankings for Week 11 can be found here.

Things are unlikely to get any easier for the Irish moving forward. They still have to face BYU and Stanford to end the season, two teams that love to pound the ball on the ground.

Jeff Long, the current Arkansas athletic director and member of the new College Football Playoff selection committee, was reportedly to interview to become the next AD at Texas. But:

Lovie Smith denies interviewing for USC coaching job

After Jason La Canfora reported that Lovie Smith was interviewing for the open coaching job at USC, the former Chicago Bears coach denied the rumors.

Smith denying the rumors -- regardless if they are true or not -- shouldn't come as a surprise. Even if he had an agreement in place with USC's athletic department to become the next coach, universities always prefer to keep things like this quiet. There's been no shortage of candidates linked to the Trojans, and it's anyone's best guess to when a final decision is made.

Michigan's Taylor Lewan twists Michigan State player's facemask

If the 29-6 loss wasn't bad enough for the Wolverines, there is now video of Taylor Lewan, a senior offensive tackle, playing dirty. Take a look for yourself:


It is unclear if any punishments will be handed down, though it seems unlikely. It was a rivalry game and things were bound to get chippy.
