The change behind them starts with TCU leapfrogging Boise State to move to #2 due primarily to BSU playing a far weaker opponent than TCU this week. Stanford moves to #4 based on prior opponents USC and Notre Dame winning big and their only loss being to far and away #1 Oregon on the road. Missouri leaps into the top-10 at #5 and Oklahoma moves up right behind them. Michigan State also joins the top-10 as does Utah and Auburn with Iowa a hold over from last week between them.
With several new teams in the top-10, it can be helpful to look at performance charts. First lets compare Missouri and Oklahoma, particularly since they are in a virtual ratings tie and play next week.
Missouri has been on a steady climb playing their two best games of the season the last two weeks. OU on the other hand had their big win over FSU early, then struggled in a few games before having a good performance against a not so strong Iowa State this week.
Michigan State started off playing creampuffs so hard to judge them early, but has hit their stride the last 3 weeks.
Auburn has been pretty consistent, with the big win over Arkansas key to them moving up.
