NOTES:
Big movement up and down. Big games and major upsets jumble the top 10.

Oklahoma stays on top despite not playing this week. LSU moves to #2 after 33-29 come from behind win over then #8 Florida. Auburn, who dropped to #10 from #3 the week before, moves back to #3. Michigan State rides its third consecutive win over Michigan to move up 10 places to the #4 spot. And South Carolina finally gets a signature win under Steve Spurrier and jumps 13 spots to #6.

Big week for the mid-majors. Boise State is finally getting help from Virginia Tech and Oregon State and shoots up into the top 5. TCU moves up three to #7. Despite winning Saturday night, Nevada drops back 1 to #24. But Air Force (5-1) joins the top 30 at #25 and Utah (5-0) rejoins the top 30 at #26 after crushing Iowa State.

In other news, Ohio State reaches the top 10 at #10. Nebraska up to #13. Oregon State in for the first time at #17. Florida State and North Carolina State both rejoin the top 30 at #20. Illinois and Arkansas make large jumps and hit the top 30 at #23 and #28.

has Ohio State as #1

IThat's because Ohio State was listed at #2 to start the year in both the ESPN/Coaches and AP polls. It's the NASCAR effect, one team drops back, another team slides up.

OSU's front end schedule was weaker than a lot of the other schools and playing 4 non-conference home games? Look for the Buckeyes to keep moving up if they keep winning as the meat of the Big 10 schedule is yet to come. My guess is that by the end of October, it will all shake out and the true contenders will be at the top of the list.

Coming in January, a political satire about the sorry state of American Politics- Jesusland vs. Progressiveville.

I've run my own computer poll for years. The only difference from mine than yours is I add points for a "convincing win" which I define as if the game was won by 28 points or more.

Obviously I couldn't do it this year, it'll have to wait for the spring, but I built it in a MS Acess database.

Excellent. I just have a spreadsheet and I use the Real RPI site to go through all the schedules. It pretty much runs itself after that. All I do is imput wins and losses and the spreadsheet takes care of the rest.

The only change I've made this year is add the head to head component to the rankings. That means that if Michigan State, for example, has a better or equal record to Michigan, they will be ranked higher no matter what. I've already had to do that with Oregon and Stanford this year.

Ok

I will be watching for next the ranking next week.
