As some of the country's undefeated squads fell by the wayside last week, the team that gained the most didn't even play.
Watching Florida State hammer The U in Miami on Saturday night, the Oklahoma Sooners' big win against the Seminoles in September now looks even better. Ohio State beating the Hurricanes that same weekend – not so much.
Feel free to accuse me of the most blatant of homerism. I'll cover other points of interest below.
*Alabama may have lost to South Carolina by two touchdowns last Saturday, but I'd still favor Nick Saban's team tomorrow on a neutral field against anyone else in the country. I have a bad habit of giving up the ghost too late with teams, but the Crimson Tide has earned the benefit of the doubt for now.
*LSU keeps scraping by. Still, the Tigers have racked up a perfect record and have only played major conference teams. Pretty good body of work.
*I'd be fine with switching Oregon and Boise State at this point. I give the Broncos a little more credit for essentially playing a road game against Virginia Tech, but the Ducks have administered some savage beatdowns up to this point.
*I get the feeling Michigan's time for this poll isn't long.
*Games to watch this week:
- No. 20 Arkansas at No. 5 Auburn
- No. 23 Iowa at No. 25 Michigan
- No. 6 Ohio State at No. 24 Wisconsin
