Update [2007-10-28 11:45:33 by rptgwb]: This week, it finally gets interesting in regard to the differences between the AP and Coaches polls. Both polls show four teams ahead of Missouri that lost over the weekend (Virginia Tech, USC, Florida, South Florida).

But the AP had those teams ranked 8-11, respectively. The Coaches poll had the teams split in the middle by Kansas, who will no doubt, and deservedly so after a win in College Station, be among the top seven or eight teams in the country by the end of today.

My guess? Kansas and Missouri move up to No. 8 and No. 9, respectively.

Update [2007-10-28 12:49:26 by rptgwb]: USA Today releases its newest Coaches Poll and vindicates my prediction:

Kansas sits at No. 8 with Missouri right behind at No. 9. Raise your hand if you predicted the Assault at Arrowhead would be a battle of two top ten teams.

As SleepyFloyd points out, there are now three Big 12 teams in the top 10. I don't know if I'd want to antagonize the SEC though, just in case one of its members awaits in the Fiesta, Sugar, or Cotton bowl...

The AP poll should be released in the next hour.

Update [2007-10-28 13:33:12 by rptgwb]: The AP Top 25 is released and Missouri is again consistent in both polls, coming in at No. 9.

The Top 10 is consistent in both polls.

Four undefeated teams remain ahead of Missouri. Next week, I think BC beats FSU at home, Kansas takes care of Nebraska, and Ohio State survives a scare from Wisconsin. But, write this down: There is no way Arizona State leaves Oregon with a win next week.

Also - don't forget two sneaky games for teams ahead of Mizzou. Oklahoma hosts Texas A&M, a team no one will expect anything out of for the rest of the season. LSU has to travel to Tuscaloosa to face Alabama, and Bryant Denny Stadium will be jacked up to see Saban take on his old team. Either of those games could feature upsets, although 'Bama over LSU at home seems more plausible to me than the Aggies over the Sooners in Norman.
