Back to fill in another missing week. The conference championships have rocketed to the top in the past few days. The SEC won by a wide margin, but the volume on the ACC wasn’t too shabby. The Big Ten finds itself a little further down the list. Hard to say if the absence of the newly minted Pac-12 Championship has anything to do with their decision to keep everyone guessing on where it would be held until the last minute.

This is “announcement weekend,” so expect to see a lot of bowls on next week’s list. The BCS, fittingly, has been around for a few weeks now, and was joined this week by the Music City Bowl. Not one I’d have expected early buzz for, but we can certainly accommodate.

Rounding out the list we see Kentucky’s basketball team is getting some interest. With the almost-certain news the NBA lockout is over, we will see if the search momentum shifts to the pros over college teams. The revised NBA schedule isn’t out yet, but we’ll have listings once it’s officially announced.

Returning this week to chronicle the rise of Radiohead to the top of the countdown. Entering last week at #6 they quickly hit the top spot this week by a pretty solid margin. Since their tour doesn’t start up until next spring, we’ll see what kind of staying power the alt rockers have.

College football remained strong both weeks, though this week we see the end of the road is in sight. Both the ACC Championship and the SEC championship find spots this week. The big conference championship games are the gateway to bowl season, which kicks off with the December 4th selection show. The first bowls of the season are the New Mexico, Famous Idaho Potato, and New Orleans Bowls on December 17th.

Some other concert performers also made their way onto the countdown this week. Roger Waters is in full nostalgia mode with “The Wall Live Tour.” On the other end of the musical age spectrum we see Mac Miller slipping into the #10 spot. The young hip hop artist has been compared to Eminem, and his debut album, Blue Slide Park, hit #1 on release.

Sliding into November we see football keeps a pretty strong grip on the countdown. The Longhorns return to the top spot that was vacated by Taylor Swift, who took a big tumble down to #8. The Longhorns are followed by the Breeders Cup which showed some strong interest all week. The festivities are today and tomorrow at Churchill Downs.

Phish is back after a longer than usual absence. They are playing a series of shows at Madison Square Garden leading up to New Years Eve.

Mississippi State, who’s remained on the countdown steadily for weeks now, climbs back to the #5 spot, and the Dallas Cowboys pick up a spot to kick off the bottom five. A fresher face, Arkansas, arrives to lend some variety to the proceedings, while the BCS Bowl once again makes an early appearance. We are about 1 month out from the big bowl announcement weekend, though.

Our partners at OSU find their way into the last spot this week, bringing the countdown to a close.

10 7 WWE

Interesting week, as nearly everyone on the countdown is a holdover from last week. Rare to see such a low level of “churn.” While Taylor Swift’s return to the top spot may seem surprising, it’s mostly the result of the World Series moving back to St. Louis. Fewer fans in Texas are going to make that particular commute.

The Series’ drop let the Longhorns move back to the #2 spot, and let the Breeders’ Cup make a big jump to the #3 spot. The Breeders’ Cup is a week away, still time to get your tickets and make some travel plans for Louisville.

The bottom five is pretty similar this week. The Cowboys drop a spot, and the Yellow Jackets, who had been absent after a good run, return this week as the countdown’s only “new” face. Mississippi State has hung in there for a while now, and keeps going this week. Rounding things out is the WWE, who benefited from some last minute searches last Monday.
