The Oklahoma Sooners have fallen to No. 25 in the AP Poll and are now out of the Coaches Poll entirely after Saturday’s disaster against Ohio State. The Sooners and Ole Miss are the first 1-2 teams to be ranked in the AP Poll since 1999.
Here are a few observations:
- North Dakota State, fresh off an upset of Iowa in Iowa City, received 74 points in the AP Poll, which puts them at No. 28. If OU is passed by an FCS program at any point this season, I may never watch football again.
- Louisville is up to No. 3 in the AP Poll, and it’s well deserved. They probably have the best win of the season (I’m thinking a win over Oklahoma isn’t going to hold much weight for Houston or Ohio State), and Lamar Jackson is the runaway winner of the September Heisman.
- Texas A&M is up to No. 10 in the AP Poll and No. 13 in the Coaches Poll. Good for Trevor Knight, but I really wish he could’ve found a different school at which to finish his career.
- Miami is up to No. 15 in the AP Poll after a sneakily-impressive win at App. State. Mark Richt could very realistically reach double-digit wins this season, especially considering how weak the ACC Coastal is.
- Michigan still has the No. 1 vote from that AP voter from 1930s Manhattan.
