The mighty Alabama Crimson Tide have been defeated, and there are plenty of excellent images to capture the fall of the nation's No. 1 team. 

That wasn't the only game to produce captivating images. In fact, it wasn't even the only game that saw a team fall from the ranks of the undefeated. No. 9 Louisville also suffered its first blemish. 

There are still plenty of top teams in action or getting ready to kick off, so we will update this page later this evening. 


The Upset Heard Round the World

There will be a new No. 1 next week. The Crimson Tide fell to Texas A&M, 29-24. As you can tell, in this screenshot from the broadcast, Nick Saban did not have the merriest of days. 

Texas A&M had the lead this entire game, but it got close at the end. How close? This interception with less than two minutes left was, in all likelihood, the difference between there being a new No. 1 this week and not. 

Making things even worse for 'Bama is the fact that this season-crushing loss came at home. Needless to say, the Crimson Tide faithful were left at a loss. Check out the picture of this fan captured in a tweet by BR.  

Alabama struggle face…

Stanford Notches Key Win

No. 14 Stanford took down No. 11 Oregon State in a key game as these two were battling for position to earn a BCS bowl bid. Stanford prevailed after scoring the game winning touchdown with just over five minutes left in the game. 

This was a well-played and hard-hitting game, which you should get a good feel for with these pictures. 

As you can see in the next pic, this was a crushing blow to the Beavers.  


Louisville Falls from the Ranks of the Undefeated

The No. 9 Louisville Cardinals entered this week with an impressive 9-0 record, compiled against unimpressive teams. That set up for a potentially sticky situation come BCS selection time. That future conundrum is avoided as they fell to Syracuse, 45-26. 

Syracuse's Prince-Tyson Gulley ran for two scores, and one of those took a remarkable effort. Check it out: 


Florida Narrowly Avoids Embarrassment 

It took 14 points in the final two minutes of game action for the No. 6 Florida Gators to pull out a 27-20 win over lightly heralded Louisiana-Lafayette.

Louisiana-Lafayette set the tone for a great game by showing they wouldn't back down from Florida's physical play, and it shows in this picture. 

There you have it. Another excellent week of college football with plenty of compelling action and a wealth of excellent images that captures it.
