Alabama looked dominating in their 24-3 win over Penn State, although the Nitts would have been in the game had they had a more experienced (less mistake-prone) quarterback. I admit, I wasn't as impressed with 'Bama's defense as I thought I would be.
Ohio State - I was impressed by their speed, and how well they performed against Miami's defense. And yes, SEC folks, I mentioned "speed" relative to a Big Ten team, even one I don't personally care for all that much.
The Crimson Tide and Buckeyes move back into #1 and #2 this week because that's how well they performed against good teams, and that's how it goes.
What boob said that Oklahoma would lose their home winning streak? Me? Well, they get rewarded for pounding the snot out of Florida State, and because the ‘Noles were so ill-prepared, screw 'em, they drop from the polls.
I'm normally not going to penalize a team that's ranked below tenth for losing to a top ten team, but when you get your asses kicked so badly that your players are hanging their heads in shame on the sidelines, it's time to leave.
Iowa, dominating win over Iowa State, although it may mean little to nothing.
Oregon drops six places. Why did that happen? I'm not sure what to do with them. They screwed around a long time with Tennessee, but then blew their doors off. So, help me out there (I did move them up last week, obviously after input from loyal readers).
Sakerlina beat Georgia, and I take that as a good win.
Michigan's win over Notre Dame is really a salute to Denard Robinson. The guy is a freak. Otherwise, 18th-25th is really just a crap shoot. Does Missouri deserve to be ranked? Houston?
You know the drill.
