Thoughts:

There was not a lot of movement this week, as there were three ranked teams that lost. Miami dropped to 13th with their destruction at the hands of Florida State. This was the first test they had since they had beat Florida, and it came right after the Hurricanes barely beat Wake Forest, which is not a great team. They had climbed to the top of the poll as other teams kept losing around them, but they had done little to prove their merits. In a weak ACC that Florida State game was probably the one chance they would have had.

Texas Tech lost their second game in a row to teams from the Sooner State and dropped out of the rankings. Both Oklahoma schools are ranked so they did lose to good teams, but they needed to prove they could play with the big boys of the Big 12 and they could not. They could make a return if they win their last few games, but that will be tough with Baylor and Texas still on the schedule.

Michigan lost to Michigan State and looked awful doing it. Their rushing total for the game (including sacks) came out to a whopping -48 yards. That is an Oregon State type of number right there. I have been underwhelmed with the Wolverines all year and while they do have some decent wins to their name, they have had plenty of close calls with bad teams and they are now up to three losses. If they win out, which would mean beating number four Ohio State in the finale, then they would end up decently ranked but that is unlikely.

Michigan State jumped into the rankings with their victory over Michigan, and Oklahoma State moved up a few points for beating the Red Raiders, but that was the majority of the moving beyond some single spot shifts.
