Thoughts:

There were six losers this week: Notre Dame, Baylor, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Stanford, and Texas A&M. Stanford and Texas A&M dropped out of the rankings, and all the others saw large drops.

One of the bigger surprises was Kurt's ballot, as he had Stanford still at 17. It was the only appearance by Stanford and it was a real surprise as that was their third loss of the season. USC appeared on every ballot besides my own as well, there were a couple teams that had slightly better resumes, as they have only really beaten an okay Stanford team and have a couple losses still.

Andy also ranked Baylor very low, as they have one loss, but he expressed last week how he felt about their victory over TCU. It appears to have lowered his opinion of them as they dropped all the way to 21.
