Total defense? Scoring defense? When we discard garbage time, adjust for pace and efficiency, and consider strength of opposition, the Oklahoma State Cowboys defense actually has a pretty good resume.

Both the Razorbacks and Tigers rank in the top-10 in Special Teams Efficiency (STE), but they excel in different ways. For Arkansas, its the electric punt and kickoff return teams; for LSU, punting and place kicking. Brian Fremeau breaks down the matchups to watch for in between offensive series.

Houston has much more in common with the 2007 Hawaii Warriors (a team that flopped badly in a Sugar Bowl matchup with Georgia) than with the non-AQ BCS busters like Utah, Boise State, and TCU that have thrived in recent seasons.

Alabama took care of business in impressive fashion against Arkansas, but now have to turn around and face a similarly formidable opponent on the road one week later. Which of the national championship contenders face the toughest consecutive game stretch this season?
