College Football Week 4 Ratings and Rankings - Oregon the new #1


This week's ratings and rankings are now posted.

And we have a new #1 in Oregon.  They made a huge leap in the ratings after their throttling of Arizona, while Alabama lost a few points not such much to do playing Florida Atlanta, but more due to Michigan and Arkansas not doing as well as expected.  Georgia stays #3 and K-State stays at #4 even with a +6 in the ratings as the computer had their game with Oklahoma being a virtual tie.

What happened to LSU?  They dropped to #14 after a 2 point win over a struggling Auburn.  Clemson and Mississippi State handled Auburn more convincingly and Clemson lost to FSU so that puts LSU's performance in perspective.

The top-25 is below, full ratings on the site.
