👋 Good morning! It's actually insane how many sporting events took place yesterday. We'll get to all of them in a second, but first — college football.
Today's word count: 1,370 words (5 minutes).
LSU swapped places with Alabama in this week's AP poll to become the nation's new No. 1 team.
Meanwhile, Oklahoma became the third top-six team in the past three weeks to lose to an unranked opponent, falling at Kansas State and dropping five spots to No. 10. And it didn't help them that Texas lost and fell out of the top 25, either.
The big picture: The first College Football Playoff rankings come out in a week. With Oklahoma's loss, consider the potential debate over the following one-loss teams come Selection Day:

This month, two 15-year-old Russian skaters, Alexandra Trusova and Anna Shcherbakova, have landed quadruple jumps that were considered off-limits for decades.
Why it matters: The jumps that these girls are performing are already on par with the top male skaters. They also might not even be possible to land once they hit puberty, which has thrown the whole sport on its head.
"At this point in ladies skating, it seems almost more difficult to become the junior world champion than the world champion."— NBC commentator Johnny Weir, per WSJ
