Analyzing the 9/30/12 AP College Football Poll

Here is week 5 of analyzing the AP poll.  Thanks as always to the AP publishing their voting.

All 5 charts are displayed below to make it easy to see the changes.

There isn't a lot of change at the top other than LSU dropping from #3 to #4 and Alabama picking up their first place vote to become unanimous.  Interestingly though, LSU received a 10th place vote last week but now the worst is a 9th place.  FSU who moves to #3 is now receiving 2nd place to 8th place votes.

Stanford falls all the way to #18, interestingly behind USC who they beat at #13.  This is a common occurrence with the polls, they over-rotate on the most recent result and forget earlier results.  My computer has Stanford #20 and USC #21.
