Lots of movement following the upset filled weekend that was college football last week. The whole cluster from 3-12 that could be ranked anywhere last week has shrunk to now about 3-8 or so.
Arkansas gets the big jump as they are playing as good as anyone in the country right now. Darren McFadden should and will be getting a lot more Heisman love and my thought that Arkansas would be knocked off again in the SEC is starting to change because they look real, real good.
Still don't think USC is as great as everyone says they are, Oregon can't play on the road so it doesn't show me much. I said it before that I thought Cal would win this week and I'm sticking with that, if USC dominates the Bears like they did the Ducks then they will definitely move up.
Also not sold on Notre Dame. They have played 2 good teams in Michigan (home loss) and Georgia Tech (close win on the road) and has filled the rest of the schedule with decent teams from big conferences (Michigan State, UCLA) and the service academies. Beating up on all the service academies and winning the commander in chief trophy does nothing for me as well. Beat USC at the Coliseum then I'll start believing.
Cal, Auburn, Texas are among the teams that blew their shot at getting to the championship game this past week but I expect all three to bounce back this week.
Wake Forest with the impressive 30-0 win at Florida State, granted it's not as impressive as it used to be but considering it's Wake Forest it's really weird to see that. Stat of the week is that Rutgers and Wake Forest have 1 combined loss between them this year.
The Game is inching closer and closer, I really need Friday to get here.
