As can be expected from a week with such wild results, there are some notable changes. Oklahoma fell from third to 14th after their loss to Houston, LSU dropped 16 spots to 21st after they were upset by Wisconsin, and Tennessee fell from ninth to 17th after barely escaping Appalachian State.

On the flip side, teams like Wisconsin and Texas that upset preseason top-10 teams vaulted into the rankings in a big way. Wisconsin enters the polls at number 10, followed immediately by Texas at 11. Other teams in the middle changed places, but there were no other huge moves, except Georgia’s move from 18th to ninth. That particular jump¬†seems ridiculous to me, but hey—no one really knows what to make of college football right now, especially after opening week. Clearly, we’re going to have to wait a few weeks before the pecking order of teams begins to shake up. If Week 1 was any indication, it could be very different from what we all originally thought.
