For the first time in several weeks, we have a #1 team stick around for 2 consecutive weeks. Kansas State stays #1 but just barely over Oklahoma. Both had wins over highly rated 1-loss teams, OU's being more impressive having them leap in the ratings. Alabama falls to #2 and another Big-12 team in Texas Tech is up to #4. Oregon slots in at #5 and Florida #6.
Why does the computer give the Big-12 more props than the SEC? Simply put, they have gone 26-3 in non-conference games while the SEC has gone 31-7. And the Big-12's losses are only to 6-1 Northern Illinois and Rice (both by Kansas), and to Arizona by Oklahoma State. And they have a win (Texas 66-31 over Ole Miss) in the one head to head with the SEC. Plus they have wins over a 4-2 Iowa, 4-3 Miami, and 4-2 Maryland.
