Linked Up: Who impressed last weekend?

Here are a few links from all around SB Nation, including one Sun Belt team's resurgence in Cajun Country and a road trip through the Southeastern Conference.

Everything may look different all around SB Nation today but one thing hasn't changed: we've still got the best writers around y'all. With such an extensive network of sites, you can get perspectives from everyone from everywhere without having to navigate the labyrinth that is what many people call "the Google". We're going all over the college football landscape today from our own Pac-12 all the way to the SEC and another little place in between them.

Our good pals over at Pacific Takes have a fantastic roundtable discussion on what team impressed the most last weekend. If I had my druthers, it'd have to be Oregon State. Oregon laying a beating on Arizona, while not expected, is at least fathomable. Oregon could be a national title contender this season so walloping a conference opponent at home is something I expected to happen this year maybe just not to Arizona. But Oregon State usually catches fire at the end of the year. Plus, heading on the road to Pasadena to play a very good UCLA squad with one of the nation's best tailbacks is no easy task so coming away with the win is mighty impressive. The trip to Corvallis looked hard already but now getting out of there with a win looks near impossible for the Cougars. Of course, Colorado winning in Pullman seemed near impossible (at least to me) so take it for what it's worth I suppose.

Steven Godfrey, you are good at this writing thing. Steven has an excellent profile on up and coming Louisiana-Monroe and how former "cupcakes" are now giving the big boys a run for their money. From a pure entertainment stand point, I adore ULM head coach Todd Berry for walking up to fans tailgating wearing LSU gear and telling them to take a hike. From an analytical stand point, Godfrey does a great job diving into the reasons many BCS conference schools are making return trips to the little guys in recent years.

Finally, the always superb Bill Connelly chronicles his trip through SEC country. I'm not going to give everything away but my favorite part the summary of his time in Auburn which, ironically, is about how my dad summed up his one and only trip to Auburn.
