FLIPPING CHANNELS

* Dropped passes contributed to Nebraska's 17-10 loss to Texas, which took some of the luster off the Nebraska-OSU game at 2:30 p.m. Saturday in Stillwater. ABC changed its regular "Good Hands Play" to a "Lack of Good Hands Play" when Nebraska receiver Brandon Kennie dropped a 38-yard touchdown pass in the end zone, the third potential TD pass dropped by Husker receivers. "They have beaten themselves today," analyst Matt Millen said.

* As the guest predictor on ESPN's "College GameDay," Kings of Leon drummer Nathan Followill picked Texas Tech to beat OSU. As an avid Sooner fan who was born in Oklahoma City, Followill was hardly unbiased. Sitting next to an OU helmet on the stage, he said, "If Oklahoma State was playing a women's college, I'd take the women's college."

* The truth in advertising award goes to CBS play-by-play announcer Verne Lundquist during Auburn's 65-43 victory over Alabama, which set an SEC scoring record for a regulation game. "As much as this has been fun for us and the fans, there have been some defensive deficiencies that have been revealed."

* ESPN analyst Kirk Herbstreit watched his alma mater, top-ranked Ohio State, fall to No. 18 Wisconsin as fans chanted "overrated!" Herbstreit called it a "signature" win for Wisconsin coach Bret Bielema. "They had come so close so many times before," Herbstreit said. Herbstreit and play-by-play announcer Brent Musburger will broadcast the OU at Missouri game at 7 p.m. Saturday on ABC.
