College Football: Week 7 Polls and Opponents

Quite a few new positions for the teams in the Top 25 this week. There’s a new #1 in Ohio State, of course and Oregon has leapt into the #2 slot ahead of both Boise State and TCU who are hurt not by their play but their conference affiliation. Both Alabama (now #8) and Florida (#22) have dropped down in the polls due to losses (in Florida’s case, their second defeat). The number of undefeated teams has decreased, too, as might be expected.

Could be some more shake-ups in store after this weekend as #1 Ohio State plays #18 Wisconsin, #7 Auburn is up against #12 Arkansas, and #15 Iowa faces Michigan.

[The three numbers for the rankings are from the AP Top 25, The Harris Coaches’ Poll, and CBSSports.com. An “NR” means that that particular poll did Not Rank the team.]
