3.      Oklahoma Sooners (3-0) - The Sooners, after taking the week off remain in the # 3 spot. Oklahoma has scored 164 points, only allowing 42 in the early going, in wins over Chattanooga, Cincinnati, and Washington. Next weeks opponent can definitely put points on the board- the TCU Horned Frogs have scored 172 points, and only allowed 31 in their four wins. Quarterback Sam Bradford has thrown 12 touchdown passes in the first four games for the Sooners, compiling 882 yards.

4.      Missouri Tigers- (4-0) - The Tigers continued to roll Saturday with a 42-21 win over Buffalo. The win kept the Tigers at their # 4 position.

Daniel has completed 101 of 133 yards for 1412 yards and 12 touchdowns in the four wins. The Tigers will take the week off before traveling to Nebraska, in what will be a heavy Big 12 test for the Tigers.

5.      Florida Gators (3-0) – The Gators were impressive 30-6 winners over Tennessee on Saturday. The win kept the Gators at the # 5 spot. In the win on Saturday, a Brandon James 78 yard punt return in the first quarter gave the Gators a quick 17-0 lead. Florida was 8 of 13 on Saturday in third down conversions, leading to much of their offensive success. The Gators will host Mississippi on Saturday.

6.      LSU Tigers (3-0) – The Tigers remain at the # 6 spot, barely filling in behind conference rival Florida, after their 26-21 win over Auburn on Saturday. The Tigers needed a 18 yard touchdown catch from Brandon LaFell, from Jarrett Lee with 1:03 to go to beat Auburn. Lee finished the game with 182 yards and two touchdowns. LSU ran for 178 yards on the ground against Auburn as well. LSU will now host Mississippi State on Saturday, before traveling to Gainesville to see the Gators on October 11th.

In the win over Rice, quarterback Colt McCoy threw for 329 yards on 19 of 23 passing and four touchdowns. The Longhorns compiled 600 total yards on offense, while yielding just 318 to Rice, with 301 of those being in the air, just 17 on the ground. Texas will host Arkansas on Saturday in a make-up game from September 13th, postponed by Hurricane Ike.

8.      Alabama Crimson Tide (4-0) – The Crimson Tide continue their rise in the rankings, topping out this week at # 8. After an impressive 49-14 win over Arkansas, Alabama and their fans feel they are a legit national title contender. In Saturday’s win, a 21-0 first quarter propelled the Crimson Tide, who did not let off the gas. Running back Glen Coffee ran for 163 yards and two touchdowns. Alabama faces their toughest test of the year on Saturday when they travel to Athens Georgia to face the # 2 Bulldogs.

9.      Texas Tech Red Raiders (4-0) – Quietly the Red Raiders of Texas Tech continue to make their way towards the top of the BCS standings. With four straight wins to start the year the Red Raiders have put up 183 total points. In their four wins Texas Tech has yet to score less than 35 points in a game, while not allowing over 19 in a single game. Texas Tech will see three straight unranked opponents before seeing Kansas, Texas, and Oklahoma in three of four weeks. This week Texas Tech will travel to Kansas State.

10.  Penn State Nittany Lions (4-0) – Like Texas Tech, Penn State is another squad that looks to be quietly making their way up the ladder with wins. All Penn St has done this season is win, and win big. With four wins, with a combined total score of 211-40 Penn State is putting points on the board. The Nittany Lions are averaging 52.7 points per game. The defense has also been impressive, limiting opponents to just 10 points a game. With wins over Coastal Carolina, Oregon State, Syracuse and Temple Penn State has not seen any opponent as strong as they will see in week five. The Fighting Illini of Illinois will make their way to Happy Valley on Saturday for the Big Ten opener for both squads. Penn State remains # 10 in the poll.

11.  Boise State Broncos (3-0) - The Broncos were able to show the college football world that they were for real on Saturday. Their 37-32 win on the road at Pac Ten representative Oregon moved the Broncos to 3-0 on the year. In that game the Broncos defense was able to intercept three Oregon passes, and picked up a fumble as well. Quarterback Kellen Moore was able to pass for 386 yards and three touchdowns. In the win over Oregon, the Broncos led 37-13 midway through three quarters, the Broncos then had to hold on after a late Oregon rally.

12.  South Florida Bulls (4-0) – The Bulls move up three spots, from last weeks 15, to # 12 this week after their 17-9 win over Florida International. Wins over Tennessee Martin, UCF, Kansas and Florida International, the Bulls have scored 141 points. Quarterback Matt Grothe has thrown for 916 yards and seven touchdowns in the early going for the Bulls. South Florida will take the road for a huge test at North Carolina State, who is coming off an upset of East Carolina on Saturday.

13.  Ohio State Buckeyes (3-1) – Ohio State continues to fall in the rankings, falling to # 13 this week, after dropping to # 9 last week. The Buckeyes were able to beat Troy 28-10 on Saturday, but seemed to do it in uninspired fashion. The Buckeyes have been without star running back Beanie Wells since halfway through the first game of the year. Ohio State is averaging 25.0 points a game, while allowing 14.7. Those numbers are a little different in games NOT played against USC, in which they were downed 35-3. The Buckeyes have elected to go with freshman Terrelle Pryor at quarterback. Pryor through for four touchdowns in the win on Saturday. Ohio State will begin their Big Ten slate on Saturday taking on Minnesota. 

14.  Wisconsin Badgers (3-0) – The Badgers got the week off, and were punished dropping two spots to # 14. The Badgers have beaten Akron, Marshall, and a thrilling 13-10 at Fresno State in their first three games. P.J. Hill, the star running back has ran for four touchdowns on 70 carries and 379 yards on the season. Three of the next five games for Wisconsin will be against ranked opponents, including Ohio State, Penn State and Illinois. The Badgers will travel to Michigan on Saturday to start their Big Ten slate.

15.  BYU Cougars (4-0) – After the scare on September 6th, when the Cougars won 28-27 at Washington, the Cougars have come back strong. In their last two games BYU has outscored their opponents 103-0. The two latest wins have been against UCLA, and Wyoming. The win for BYU has moved the Cougars from # 16 to # 13 in the polls.  BYU has scored 172 points on the year, while yielding just 44. BYU is 3-0 at home this season. Quarterback Max Hall has thrown for 15 touchdowns in four games. BYU will sit out this coming weekend before traveling to Utah State on October 3rd.

16.  Auburn Tigers (3-1) – After the 26-21 LSU in last minute fashion the Tigers drop 5 positions in the rankings from # 16 to # 11. In four games played, the Tigers have allowed just 41 points, including just two in a 3-2 win on September 13 over Mississippi State. Auburn quarterback Chris Todd has completed 61 of 107 passes on the year, but has completed just two touchdown passes. Auburn will look to improve that this coming week. The Tigers will host the Tennessee Vols’, with both teams looking to pick up a SEC win on Saturday.

17.  Colorado Buffaloes (3-0) – After a thrilling overtime victory on Thursday, the Buffaloes move up from # 18 to #17 this week. Colorado has won three straight games by an average of nine points a game. In the three wins, Colorado has scored 86 points, while allowing 55. Colorado’s schedule does not get any easier as the Buffaloes will host Texas, and then travel to Kansas, before hosting Kansas State, and then traveling to Missouri. The first test will be Saturday at 7:00ET against the vaunted Texas Longhorns.

18.  Kansas Jayhawks (3-1) – The Jayhawks are off to a 3-1 start, with the one loss coming at the hands of South Florida in overtime. Kansas has scored 141 points in four games, while just allowing 61. Todd Reesing has completed 126 of 197 passes so far, throwing for 1397 yards and 11 touchdowns. The Jayhawks will take this weekend off before traveling to Ames, Iowa to face Iowa State for their Big 12 opener. After Iowa State, Kansas gets Colorado, Oklahoma, and Texas Tech in consecutive weeks. Kansas moves up one spot from # 19 to # 18.

19.  Illinois Fighting Illini (2-1) – The Fighting Illini had the week off, and most certainly prepared for the upcoming Big Ten opener at Penn State. During the off week, the Illini moved up from # 20 to #19. The Illini have allowed 90 points in their first three games, while scoring 109. After the 52-42 loss to Missouri, Illinois beat Eastern Illinois and Louisiana Lafayette. Illinois is led by quarterback Juice Williams, who has thrown 15 passes to top receiver Arrelious Benn 15 times of his 55 completions.

20.  Clemson Tigers (3-1) – Clemson, after a week one defeat have won three straight games, over The Citadel, North Carolina State, and South Carolina State. In those three wins the Tigers have scored 42 points a game, while allowing just 8.3. In Clemson’s Saturday win, 54-0, running back James Davis ran for 95 yards and three touchdowns. Clemson will host Maryland on Saturday, before taking a week off before the huge ACC showdown at Wake Forest on October 9th. The Tigers move up three spots from last week, and are now #20.

21.  Wake Forest Demon Deacons (3-0) – On Saturday, Wake Forest forced seven turnovers, in their 12-3 win over Florida State. The win for Wake Forest moved them from #24 to #21. In the three wins for Wake Forest, the Demon Deacons defense has allowed just 44 total points. Riley Skinner, Wake Forest quarterback has thrown for 704 yards and five touchdowns on 76 of 108 passing. Wake Forest will host Navy on Saturday.

22.   East Carolina Pirates (3-1) – After three huge wins to start the season, the Pirates fell on Saturday 30-24 to ACC representative North Carolina State. That loss drops the Pirates from # 14 to # 22 in the poll. In the Saturday loss Andre Brown caught a 10 yard touchdown pass to win the game for the Wolfpack. East Carolina allowed NCST’s quarterback Russell Wilson to throw for three touchdowns, and 210 yards. East Carolina will face Houston at home on Saturday.

23.  Utah Utes (4-0) – The Utes continue to win, and have moved to as high as # 17 in the new Associated Press poll. We here feel Utah has some more work to do to put them in the top 20. What they have done is won four straight games to start the year. After the win in Ann Arbor over Michigan in week one, the Utes came home to beat UNLV, before taking the road and knocking off both Utah State and Air Force. The Utes now stay at home for two straight games; Weber State and Oregon State. The Utes hope to keep their record with zero losses heading into the November 6th game with TCU, and the November 22nd game against BYU. Utah moves into the top 25 after being unranked last week.

24.  Pittsburgh Panthers (2-1) – The Panthers climb back into the polls after being unranked last week. Pittsburgh is 2-1 after their 21-20 win over Iowa on Saturday. Running back LeSean McCoy has rushed for five touchdowns in the first three games on 61 carries, and 242 yards. The Panthers have scored 65 points, and allowed 63. Pittsburgh will begin their Big East slate on Saturday when they host Syracuse. On October 2nd, the Panthers will face their toughest test of the season when they travel to South Florida.

25.  Virginia Tech Hokies (3-1) – With a 2-0 record in the Coastal division of the ACC conference, the Hokies look to be in the drivers seat. With conference wins over Georgia Tech and North Carolina, Virginia Tech is a couple plays away from being 4-0 overall. The week one loss to East Carolina 27-22, set the Hokies off to a slow start, but since then Virginia Tech has defeated Furman, Georgia Tech, and North Carolina. The Hokies have scored 86 points, allowing 68 on the year. Quarterback Tyrod Thomas, who missed week one, has yet to throw for a touchdown, but has thrown two interceptions. The Hokies will travel to Nebraska on Saturday to battle the Cornhuskers. The Hokies were not ranked last week.

Best of the rest:
TCU Horned Frogs, Vanderbilt Commodores, Oklahoma State Cowboys, Nebraska Cornhuskers

Dropped out:
Arizona State Sun Devils, West Virginia Mountaineers, Oregon Ducks
