190: Jordan Todman ran for 190 yards and two touchdowns to lead Connecticut to a 40-21 win over Vanderbilt , just the second win for the Big East over a BCS conference team this season. Todman, who carried the ball 37 times, has now rushed for over 100 yards in seven of his last eight games.

Nice work pulling out some cool munbers.

Nearly 1,000 yards by 2 QBs in 1 game is nuts.
Looks like Pitt has found a new stud back.

By the Numbers: Week 5's Best Performances

What was the point in this comment?............."190: Jordan Todman ran for 190 yards and two touchdowns to lead "...........I presume it was so you could take this low shot at the Big East........"just the second win for the Big East over a BCS conference team this season."  I, for one, don't think this slur was necessary.  CBS has some sort of agenda as though this were 60 minutes and it's time to crucify someone.  My guess is they're trying to influence recruits to go to the basket CBS has their eggs in.  The Big East, while not the best, is not the weak conference the CBS presents them as.

CBS seems hell bent to prove they're totally classless.  Mission accomplished, CBS.
