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.
Florida State jumps Oregon for No. 2 spot in BCS
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.

Notre Dame players hurt by Navy, Air Force blocks, says Brian Kelly
Notre Dame has played Navy and Air Force the last two weeks. As two teams that run the triple option almost exclusively, the Irish have taken a beating on defense with all the cut blocks they've had to deal with. On Sunday, Kelly attributed the chop blocks as the main reason why they've lost a handful of starters to injuries, including Ishaq Williams, Kona Schwenke and Sheldon Day.
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.

Lovie Smith denies interviewing for USC coaching job
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
