Rivals.com senior national writer Tom Dienhart gives us a quick look at what he liked and what he didn't like from Week 10:

Photo of the week
Texas Tech fans were so excited about beating No. 1 Texas that they rushed the field with one second still left in the game. After order was restored and the Red Raiders held on, the real celebration began.

Lucky guy: Mark Dantonio, Michigan State
Poor guy: Al Groh, Virginia
Desperately seeking a clue: Rich Rodriguez, Michigan
Desperately seeking a P.R. man: Urban Meyer, Florida
Desperately seeking sunglasses and a fake beard: Steve Kragthorpe, Louisville
Desperately seeking ... anything: Dan Hawkins, Colorado


Thought you'd kick butt, you did: USC

Strike the pose: Tim Tebow completed 10-of-13 passes for 154 yards and two TDS, and ran 12 times for 39 yards and three TDs in Florida's 49-10 win over Georgia.
Didjaya see that?: Purdue's Desmond Tardy scored the game-winning TD on a hook-and-ladder with less than 30 seconds left to steal a 48-42 victory over Michigan that guarantees the Wolverines' 33-year bowl streak is over.
That hurts: Georgia Tech QB Josh Nesbitt hurt an ankle in the third quarter. Backup Jaybo Shaw lost a fumble and was intercepted, but the Yellow Jackets still beat Florida State, 31-28, for the first time since 1975 when Seminoles RB Marcus Sims fumbled into the end zone in the waning seconds.
Isn't that special?: Iowa State's Leonard Johnson set a Division I-A single-game record for kickoff return yards with 319 on nine runbacks in the Cyclones' 59-17 loss to Oklahoma State.
