1.      Oklahoma Sooners (4-0) – With the loss of the top two teams from last week the new # 1, improving from the # 3 position is the Oklahoma Sooners. Oklahoma has won their first four games, with their closest coming on Saturday in a 35-10 win over Texas Christian University. In the win on Saturday the Sooners compiled 436 total yards on offense, including 411 of them in the air. Quarterback Sam Bradford completed 19 of 34 passes for four touchdowns, and the 411 yards. The defense for Oklahoma did not allow a touchdown until the fourth quarter. All in all Oklahoma has outscored opponents 199 to 52. Oklahoma will travel to Baylor this weekend, before coming home to host Texas on October 11th.

2.      Missouri Tigers (4-0) – Despite have a bye week, the Missouri Tigers have moved up two positions from # 2 to # 4. Missouri is the second of two Big 12 teams at the top of the rankings. The Tigers have outscored opponents 215 to 83 in the early going. Heisman candidate Chase Daniel has completed 101 of 133 passes for 1412 yards and 12 touchdowns. His teammate, another Heisman candidate Jeremy Maclin has caught 26 passes, compiling 391 yards and four touchdowns. Missouri will travel to Nebraska on Saturday to battle to Cornhuskers, before hosting Oklahoma State on October 11th. The Tigers look to continue their undefeated mark before their October 18th date at Texas.

3.      LSU Tigers (4-0) – The Tigers raise three positions from # 6 to # 3. On Saturday LSU was a 34-24 winner over Mississippi State. LSU has outscored opponents 142 to 61 thus far this season. Quarterback Jarrett Lee has completed 45 of 77 passes for 643 yards and six touchdowns. The Tigers defense has allowed 22.5 points per game in the last two, while only allowing 8, in the first two. LSU will take this weekend off, and then get set for a Top 10 battle in Gainesville with Florida.

4.      Texas Longhorns (4-0) – Texas continues the streak of teams moving up the rankings after dismantling Arkansas 52-10 on Saturday. The win moved Texas up from # 7 inside the top 5, to # 5. The Longhorns have scored 198 points, while yielding just 43 in the early going. Texas four wins have been over Florida Atlantic, UTEP, Rice, and Arkansas. In three of the four wins for Texas, the Longhorns have scored 52 points, while the fourth they scored 42. Quarterback Colt McCoy has completed 80 of 100 passes for 1018 yards and 14 touchdowns. Texas will travel to Colorado, and Oklahoma in their next two weeks, before coming home to face Missouri. If Texas can get through these next three weeks unbeaten, the Longhorns may have a shot at the BCS national title.

5.      Alabama Crimson Tide (5-0) – The Crimson Tide just continue to impress. Alabama has now beat two teams that were inside the top 10, when they faced them. Alabama, with their win over Georgia moved up from # 8 to # 5. Alabama now has wins over Clemson, Tulane, Western Kentucky, Arkansas and Georgia, with three of the give being on the road. On Saturday Parker Wilson put the Tide up 31-0 with just over 1:00 to go in the first half on a 22-yard touchdown run. The Tide allowed Georgia to creep back into the game on Saturday, but was not enough, as Alabama held on 41-30. Alabama will take on Kentucky at home on Saturday. The Crimson Tide will not see another ranked team until November 8th at LSU and November 22nd hosting Auburn.

6.      Penn State Nittany Lions (5-0) – The Penn State Nittany Lions faced their toughest test so far in the 2008 season on Saturday, and passed. Scoring 38 points on Illinois, Penn State defeated the Illini 38-24. Derrick Williams returned a kickoff for 94 yards, and a touchdown giving PSU a 31-17 lead with 14:47 to go. Williams on the night had three touchdowns, one on special teams, one rushing, and one receiving. In five games played the Nittany Lions have scored an astonishing 249 points, while yielding just 64. Penn State will now go on the road and battle Purdue, before heading to their first major test in Madison Wisconsin vs. the Badgers on October 11th. The Nittany Lions move up four spots from # 10 to # 6.

7.      Georgia Bulldogs (3-1) – The Georgia Bulldogs trailed Alabama 31-0 on Saturday. The worse news; this game was in Athens, a home game for Georgia. In a game where the Bulldogs could have garnered what they had been begging for since the start of the season; respect, the Bulldogs folded. Georgia cannot hang their heads too long, as the tough SEC slate will continue. After taking this week off, Georgia will host the 1-3 Tennessee Vols’, before four out of five games against ranked opponents. The loss for Georgia dropped them from the # 2 spot down to # 7.

8.      USC Trojans (2-1) – The Trojans traveled to Oregon State as 25-point favorites on Thursday, and were taken down, and knocked out of the # 1 spot, all the way down to # 8.  Quarterback Mark Sanchez has thrown 10 touchdowns in the first three games played for USC. The defense has only allowed 37 points in three games; wins over Virginia, Ohio State and the Oregon State loss. The Trojans schedule does not get any easier this week, hosting the Oregon Ducks.

9.      Texas Tech Red Raiders (4-0) – The Red Raiders had last week off, which was probably good for them, as many top teams were taken down. With the bye week, Texas Tech remains at the # 9 position. In four games played the Red Raiders have scored 183 points, while allowing just 64. They are 3-0 at home, and have won their only game on the road thus far. Texas Tech now plays three straight unranked opponents, before a stretch of four straight games against ranked teams. This week Texas Tech will travel to Kansas State to face the Wildcats.

10.  Florida Gators (3-1) – The Florida Gators, are another team that had a chance to really make a move with other top teams falling on Saturday. Instead, a 31-30 loss at home to the hands of the Mississippi Rebels. Tim Tebow was stuffed on a 4th and one to go with less than a minute to go. In that game, Tebow completed 24 of 38 passes for 319 yards, with a touchdown and no interceptions. The Gators allowed 325 total yards to the Rebels. Florida travels to Arkansas to take on the Razorbacks on Saturday. The Gators need to make sure they do not look ahead as they will host the LSU Tigers on October 11th. The loss for the Gators dropped them from # 5 last week to # 10 this season.

11.  Boise State Broncos (3-0) – The Broncos remain # 11 after their week off, and remain right on the cusp of entering the Top Ten.  The Broncos would love to continue in their winning ways, all the way until the final regular season game at home against Fresno State. Boise State hopes to run the table in an up and coming WAC conference. The Broncos have outscored opponents by 60 points in their three games. The only close game was the September 13th win over Bowling Green, in which Boise State won 20-7. Boise State will play a mid-week game with Louisiana Tech.

12.  South Florida Bulls (5-0) – Another mid major team moving up in the rankings, ahead of some of the big conference favorites. The Bulls do not move up or down a spot and remain # 12 after the 41-10-blowout victory over North Carolina State. The Bulls are averaging 36.3 points a game, while allowing just 16.8. South Florida quarterback Matt Grothe has thrown for eight touchdowns, been intercepted twice, but been sacked eight times already this season. Running back Moise Plancer has rushed for four touchdowns on 36 carries. South Florida will host Pittsburgh on Thursday night in a Big East battle.

13.  Ohio State Buckeyes (4-1) – The Buckeyes remain # 13 after their Big Ten opening win at home against Minnesota. In the win over the Gophers running back Beanie Wells was back, but did not get in the end zone, compiling 106 yards. Freshmen quarterback Terrelle Pryor completed 8 of 13 passes for 70 yards and a touchdown. He also ran for 97 yards and 8 carries, and two touchdowns. Ohio State will play a huge Big Ten game on Saturday in Madison Wisconsin to face the 0-1(Big Ten) Wisconsin Badgers. 

14.  BYU Cougars (4-0) – The theme of mid major teams moving up the ranks continues; this time with the undefeated BYU Cougars. The Associated Press poll has the Cougars all the way up to the # 8 position, while the Coaches Poll rank them # 7. We don’t seem to have the respect that the other sources do, as we move the Cougars up one spot from last weeks # 15 to this weeks # 14. The Cougars have shut out their last two opponents; UCLA and Wyoming.  In those four games the Cougars have won, they have scored 172 points, led by quarterback Max Hall, who has thrown for 15 touchdowns. Hall is looking more and more like a Heisman candidate, completing 107 of 144 passes. Like Boise State, the Cougars to not see a ranked opponent until the last week of the season, when they travel to Utah.

15.  Auburn Tigers (4-1) – Despite their dysfunctional offense, the Auburn Tigers are 4-1. Quarterback Chris Todd has struggled, but the defense has picked up the slack, and turned the Tigers into a SEC contender. The Tigers one loss came in the last two minutes to the LSU Tigers in week four. On Saturday, the Tigers came away with a 16-14 win over Tennessee. The Tigers needed the help from a Tennessee fumble inside the end zone for the going ahead touchdown. Auburn has allowed just 53 points in five games. Auburn will travel to Nashville on Saturday to take on the undefeated and upbeat Commodores. The Tigers move up one position from # 16 to # 15.

16.  Kansas Jayhawks (3-1) – After taking the week off Kansas moves up to positions from the # 18 spot, to the # 16 position. Kansas hopes to get quality performances from quarterback Todd Reesing, who has completed 126 of 170 passes for 1405 yards and 11 touchdowns in four games. Kansas’ only loss was a 37-34 loss at South Florida, in which the Bulls kicked a field goal as time expired. The Jayhawks will begin their Big 12 slate on Saturday when they travel to Ames Iowa to face the Iowa State Cyclones.

17.  Utah Utes (5-0) – The Utah Utes continue to make the climb after the season opening win at Michigan, Utah has continued to do nothing but win. Wins over UNLV, Utah State, Air Force, and Weber State have led to the undefeated start. The Utes have been led by their quarterback Brian Johnson, who has completed 92 of 133 passes for 1129 yards and 8 touchdowns. The only knock on Johnson has been his five interceptions thrown. This week the Utes will play a Thursday night affair against the red hot Oregon State Beavers. The Beavers are coming off a huge win over then # 1 USC in Corvallis. The win for the Utes moved them up from # 23 to # 17.

18.  Wisconsin Badgers (3-1) – The Badgers had a chance to slide to, or near the Top Ten, but instead couldn’t hold a 19-0 lead in Ann Arbor, and ultimately couldn’t convert a two-point conversion, and fall to Michigan 27-25. In the loss P.J Hill could only muster 70 yards on 22 carries. In Saturday’s loss the Badgers offense out gained Michigan 384 to 268, including 226 to 96 via the air.

Much of Virginia Tech’s offense has come from running back Darren Evans, who has scored 6 rushing touchdowns.

20.  Vanderbilt Commodores (4-0) – The Commodores are another team entering the rankings for the first time. With wins over Miami Ohio, South Carolina, Rice and Mississippi the Commodores finally crack the top 25. The Commodores will have a tough test this week as they host Auburn. After this game with Auburn, Vanderbilt has three more weeks against ranked opponents. Quarterback Chris Nickson leads the offense with three passing touchdowns, and five more touchdowns via the ground.

21.  Oklahoma State Cowboys (4-0) – Staying with the theme of unranked teams entering the Top 25; the Oklahoma State Cowboys.

This week the Huskies will take on the upbeat North Carolina Tarheels, who are coming in at 3-1, coming off a huge win at Miami. NR

24.  Pittsburgh Panthers (3-1) – Back to back Big East teams near the bottom of the top 25, the latter being the 3-1 Pitt Panthers.

In that game, the Panthers offense put up 407 total yards on offense, while allowing just 263. 241 of the yards for Pittsburgh were on the ground.
