Virginia Tech, UCLA blown out

SPECIAL TO ESPN.COM

Nov. 7, 2005 | Dick's Stock Watch provides a fast-glance review of the past week in the world of sports, charting whose stock is up and whose is down.

STOCK UP

The Miami Hurricanes sent a message by winning at Virginia Tech Saturday night. Larry Coker's defense was outstanding, shutting down Marcus Vick.

Penn State's defense did a great job shutting down Wisconsin's Brian Calhoun. Joe Paterno's team is in the thick of the race for a BCS berth.

LaDainian Tomlinson scored four touchdowns as the Chargers hung on to beat the Jets.

Steve Spurrier's South Carolina Gamecocks are bowl eligible after winning at Arkansas.

The Cincinnati Bengals are now 7-2. The Seattle Seahawks, Carolina Panthers, New York Giants and Pittsburgh Steelers all are 6-2, and all five of teams won on the road on Sunday.

The Washington Wizards are 3-0 for the first time since the 1978-79 season. Eddie Jordan's team has looked good early.

STOCK DOWN

Terrell Owens has created enough controversy with the Eagles.

The UCLA Bruins saw their unbeaten season end, getting blown out at Arizona.

Nebraska was blown out by Kansas. The Cornhuskers had not lost to the Jayhawks since 1968 before Saturday's 40-15 defeat in Lawrence, while the Florida State Seminoles were stunned at home by the NC State Wolfpack.

It has been a rough start for Larry Brown as the New York Knicks coach, losing three straight, including Sunday at home against Golden State.
