Can you say domination? The SEC can

road. But the upsets didn't stop there, Iowa State beat No. 2
Oklahoma State Friday, setting up Saturdays' chaotic mess. Aside

Wow, what an exciting weekend in college football. The schools that "had no chance," from Iowa State to USC, proved all doubters wrong, winning on the big stage (in several locations) in what's come to be known as "Upset Saturday" in college football. But on a good note for the SEC, the losses leave yet another mark on an historic resume for the conference. Check this out:

LSU, Alabama, and Arkansas are likely to hold the first three spots in the BCS, respectively. This is the first time since 1971 that the top three teams have been from one conference. However, this marks the first time the big three have been from the same division in the history of college football.

The new and updated BCS rankings, updated to reflect the losses of those ranked near the top, will be released tonight at 8 p.m. ET on ESPN's weekly BCS Countdown Show presented by Vizio.
