Dropped Out: Boston College (#15), Virginia Tech (#16), Kansas (#22), Vanderbilt (#25)

Justifications (or at least the best I can do):

  • Spots 1-3 explain themselves
  • Oklahoma sticks at No. 4, as Texas Tech gets an audition for a top 4 spot this coming weekend depending on how tough it plays Texas
  • I can't justify dropping OSU below 7. That is a damn good, well-coached football team who apparently gave the nation's top team hell
  • Ohio State drops only one spot following hanging tough with No. 3 Penn State
  • Mizzou comes in at No. 14, right ahead of an LSU team coming off a beatdown by Georgia
  • I finally start to give Tulsa its due at No. 16
  • Same for Minnesota, who ends up at No. 18
  • I have no idea what to do with the Big East. As The Boy and I were discussing over the weekend, someone in that conference is going to go 4-3 in-conference and get spanked in a BCS Bowl
  • I want so badly to be on the Georgia Tech bandwagon (Wooo Flexbone!), but Virginia pops up and bites another ACC team I find myself liking after beating North Carolina last week
