Notables

  • The Alabama Crimson Tide take over the as the top one-loss team in both polls. Now, the SEC West currently has three teams inside the top four. What does that mean? The likelihood of the SEC landing two team in the College Playoff appears imminent.
  • The Big XII proved once again that this could be the best conference top to bottom in the nation. The West Virginia Mountaineers move up eight spots to take over the role of gate keeper in the Coaches' Poll. On the flip side of things, Baylor takes the biggest plunge dropping nine spots to thirteen.
  • Stanford, Texas A&M, and Oklahoma St. were all dropped from the rankings this week.
