Alabama remains #1 after their comfortable win over Michigan. The surprise is Oklahoma State isn't that far behind at their 84-0 win. This result will carry very little weight after they play more meaningful games, so they'll need to back that result up to stay there.
LSU is #3 but quite a ways back, dropping quite a few points after beating North Texas 41-14. Oregon is #4 and Boise State, even though they lost, is up to #5. How can Boise State lose and move up? Well, their rating actually went down nearly 2.5 points, but they benefited from Arkansas playing an FCS team and dropping 5 ratings points.
A big mover this week was Nebraska, up 18 spots and over 6 ratings points to #7 after easily handling a Southern Miss that was very good last year. Now, Southern Miss may not be as good as last year, but until they play other games that show that, Nebraska is getting credit for a very good win.
Michigan State moved up 8 spots to #11 after a quality win over Boise State. However, if Boise State proves to be a notch below what they've been in the past, a close win at home, while still a good win, won't be quite as impressive.
Notre Dame is up 11 spots to #12 after a 50-10 drubbing of a decent Navy team. This may be an indication that things are looking up for the Irish.
Several other bigger name teams made moves into the top-30 after down years last year including Tennessee, Ohio State, Clemson, and BYU.
Look for the full ratings Monday night, and more updates as the games are played.
