Thoughts:

There were four ranked teams (from the BTD poll) that went down, so the rankings are not nearly as jumbled as they were last weekend. Missouri fell in double overtime to South Carolina, and fell a paltry three spots to number 10, which is more of a high valuation of the SEC more than Missouri, who has been okay so far, but is not overly impressive. It feels ridiculous in my opinion that when UCLA lost to Oregon, who might be the best team in the country, they dropped seven spots to 20. They were dominated certainly, but the value of the losses should not be so different.

Virginia Tech dropped out of the rankings losing to an unranked Duke team, and with the state of the ACC it will be difficult for them to make a recovery. Miami struggled against Wake Forest which is not exactly a powerhouse, and Baylor jumped them in all the rankings but Connor's, where they remain unranked. They will play a ranked team in Oklahoma next week though which offers them the chance to really prove themselves.

Texas Tech was the other loser on the weekend dropping to Oklahoma, dropping a whopping eight spots all the way to 19, which also seems odd considering that was their first loss of the season. They fell past a couple two-loss teams which were not coincidentally SEC teams as well.

Oregon State dropped all the way out of the picture, being relegated to RVM votes again. In the national ranks they are still getting some votes, but that will likely be the extent unless they can break off another long winning streak.
