It was an upset-free week of college football at the top of the rankings. AP poll leader LSU Tigers (1) took care of Kentucky while the Oklahoma Sooners (2) destroyed poor Ball St. Completing the top three domination, Alabama Crimson Tide (3) had the toughest opponent in the Florida Gators (12) and came through with a big win (38-10). With these results to mull over, the AP bumped Alabama up to No. 2 putting them one spot higher than Oklahoma based on the quality of their win. LSU stays on top.
The Boise St. Broncos (4) easily rolled over Nevada but dropped to the fifth spot while Oklahoma State (5) had a bye week and are now ranked sixth. Those moves come thanks to the big win from Wisconsin who jumped to fourth in the AP poll.
The Badgers jumped from seventh to fourth thanks to the 48-17 beating they put on the Nebraska Huskers who were ranked eighth and are now 14th in the AP Poll.
These moves put the AP top 5 as LSU (1), Alabama (2), Oklahoma (3), Wisconsin (4), and Boise State (5). After that comes Oklahoma St. (6), Stanford (7), Clemson (8), Oregon (9) and Arkansas (10). (Here's the full AP top 25 list.)
The USA Today Coaches Poll tells a different story. They rank Oklahoma (1), Alabama (2), LSU (3), Stanford (4) and Wisconsin (5) at the top of their ranking.
