Thoughts:

Ole Miss got their second loss of the year and plummeted all the way down to 13, likely knocking them out of the playoff race.

Utah and Arizona both lost, adding even more confusion into the Pac-12 South. ASU now seats in the driver's seat, but USC and UCLA still have a puncher's chance if the Sun Devils slip up.

West Virginia fell and while it was to a quality opponent in TCU, it was enough to knock them off the cusp. Georgia and East Carolina had real bad losses though, falling to inferior opponents in Florida and Temple respectively. Georgia landed at number 15 and East Carolina dropped straight out.
