Dropped Out: Alabama (#18), Louisville (#20), Washington (#23), Texas Tech (#25).

Florida's game with Ole Miss drops them below West Virginia. Other teams move up due to Penn State's inability to stop Mike Hart. I keep wondering if Ohio State belongs ahead of Wisconsin and California, having beaten Washington earlier on the road and then pounding Northwestern this past weekend.

Still, I like the toughness with which Wisconsin plays football. They beat a tough Iowa defense this weekend.

Purdue, Kansas, Michigan State move into the poll per the virtue of being undefeated. Missouri continues to rise as others fail.

With one of the worst defenses in the nation, Nebraska really doesn't belong in the Top 25, but who else does?
