For the 3rd week in a row, we have a new #1. All of the big games and upsets and big scores have caused a significant shakeup in the ratings and the result is that Kansas State moves to #1. They get a big boost by Oklahoma, their biggest game to date, beating up on former undefeated Texas Tech. Idle Alabama stays #2 and aforementioned Oklahoma moves to #3. Oregon improved their rating but got passed by Oklahoma while South Carolina jumps 3 spots to #5.
Last week's #1, Florida, falls to #6, they won but not by as much as expected and were hurt by former opponent Kentucky not doing as well as expected. Other big winners yesterday, Notre Dame and West Virginia, move up to #9 and #10, and the computer didn't like LSU before, having them #14 and they fall a bit more to #17 this week. The computer also hadn't been fond of FSU and they too fall more to #19.
