Notre Dame won again and is trying to play its way into the national championship game, while Oregon State fell again. Here was the week 11 action around BYU's schedule:
WASHINGTON STATE (2-8)
LOST 44-36 to #18 UCLA
The Cougars battled yet again, but couldn't stop UCLA enough to claim a win. Star receiver Marquess Wilson also left the team and issued an open letter alleging Wazzu coaches of abuse. Uh oh.

LOST 52-13 to BYU
Jason Gesser and the Vandals may have lost in a big way, but they completed the best backdoor cover in recent history. With the spread at 40 and BYU up by 42, the Cougars fumbled a punt return with just seconds remaining. Idaho trotted out the field goal unit, and voila! Backdoor cover as time expires.
Next week: vs UTSA (6-4)

The Spartans eclipsed 500 yards of offense yet again, building on an already strong season for Mike McIntyre and company.
