College Football Rankings, Week 12: LSU Unanimous No. 1, Oregon Moves to No. 4 in AP Poll

Categorized under the list of not incredibly shocking news is the news that LSU is the unanimous No. 1 in the country according to voters for the AP Poll in week 12, but what is a bit more shocking is the fact that the AP hasn't had a unanimous No. 1 since Texas back in 2008, which says a lot about Les Miles' program this season. There were also a handful of stunning upsets this weekend in college football, though the team that made the most of their opportunity were the Oregon Ducks, jumping up to No. 4 this week. 

Alongside LSU and Oregon, Oklahoma State (2), Alabama (3), and Oklahoma (5) round out the top 5. With the loss Stanford falls to No. 8 this week in the AP, and possibly out of the BCS conversation, while another field goal snafu cost Boise State another undefeated season, dropping them all the way to No. 10. Georgia moved to No. 13 after topping Auburn, though Penn State fell to No. 21 after falling to Nebraska, who use the win to rise up to No. 17. Arizona State missed the rankings now for the second straight week. 

Cincinnati, Georgia Tech, Auburn, and Texas all lost their spots in the top 25 this weekend, though Florida State, Norte Dame and Baylor creep their way back into the top 25 in the last three slots respectfully.
