Notables

  • There's no denying the SEC as the best conference in the nation. The rankings reflect that notion with three programs from the SEC represented inside the top five. Don't panic just yet! Those inside the top four have quite a conference schedule left to play.
  • On another note, the Oklahoma Sooners check in at No. 18 as the best two-loss team.
  • Undefeated Marshall fails to make the list this week and could potentially crack the top 25 if they continue to build upon the 8-0 record they currently possess.
  • Each week the selection committee will convene to discuss while the rankings are released each Tuesday. You can find the schedule below.
