Thoughts:

Mississippi was the biggest loser on the day, falling to LSU. They dropped from second all the way to 9th. The main reason was Andy's ranking of the Rebels at 16, which drastically pulled down their point total. Oklahoma State was the other loser on the day and they disappeared out of the ranks.

Some of the strange ranks were Stanford at number 16 for Kurt which actually moved the Cardinal into the consensus poll. Arizona State was also strongly disagreed on, ranging from 8 to 19. They have had an odd year, getting destroyed by UCLA and then they beat USC on a hail mary, followed by two strong wins. A battle against the 16th ranked Utah Utes might help establish some agreement between the polls.
