The top teams were finally tested today, albeit some more than others. Alabama spotted Texas A&M 14 points before reeling off 35 unanswered. But the Aggies made a superb comeback effort and seriously tested the Tide defense. Alabama answered the call, but allowing 42 points to anybody could be a problem. Ohio State also got a nice test at Cal and Oregon went up against Tennessee. The Buckeyes struggled a bit defensively, which is not a huge surprise against Cal. Considering Braxton Miller was sitting on the sidelines, any road win is a great win for Ohio State. Meanwhile, Oregon crushed the Volunteers. The Ducks got off to a slow start and basically took the fourth quarter off. Yet, they still scored 59 points. There will be plenty of more tests along the way, but the top three are starting to separate themselves from the rest of the pack.
