The only thing more endangered than being Arkansas' head coach is being undefeated.
Stanford found out Thursday night what others will discover Saturday.
The Atlantic Coast and Mid-American each cling to one no-loss representative. The difference is No. 4 Florida State has a chance to win the national title while Ohio has a chance to win the MAC.
We examine the threat levels elsewhere:
• Towson at No. 3 Louisiana State (4-0): LSU survived a scare in last week's 12-10 win over Auburn, but this game won't produce so much as a "boo." If Towson thought losing to William & Mary was tough, wait until it gets a load of Baton & Rouge. LSU only loses style points if the mighty Tigers let the not-so-mighty Tigers hang around longer than the experts deem appropriate.
• Mississippi at No. 1 Alabama (4-0): Ole Miss is 0-8 against top-ranked opponents and hasn't defeated Alabama since 2003. Alabama's defense has allowed 21 points in four games and Coach Nick Saban isn't happy about any one of them.
• Oregon (4-0) at Washington State: Oregon is coming off a 49-0 win over Arizona. Washington State lost at home to Colorado, which had been considered among the worst teams in major college football. This game is at "neutral" site in Seattle, but look for Oregon to quickly stick the gear shift into "drive."
• Ohio (4-0) at Massachusetts: It's nice the New England Patriots are letting UMass borrow Gillette Stadium to transition into college football's top division, but unfortunately the winless Minutemen aren't allowed to borrow any Patriots players.
• Indiana at Northwestern (4-0): Indiana isn't horrible, but we expect Northwestern to hold serve in Evanston. The Wildcats have scored wins against the SEC (Vanderbilt), Big East (Syracuse) and ACC (Boston College). How hard can the Big Ten be?
