College Football Power Rankings

1. Alabama The Tide are blowing out opponents they have been dominating teams in the first half. They get a bye before one of their second-toughest matchup of the year against LSU.
2. Florida State Led by Jameis Winston, the Seminoles have been absolutely scary, they absolutely passed all over NC State..
3. Oregon Halfway through their matchup with the Bruins it looked like UCLA may be able to pull out the upset but Marcus Mariota reassured his Heisman candidacy with a dominant second half.
4. Ohio State Braxton Miller and the Buckeyes continue to roll through their weak schedule, blowing out Penn State 63-14, the most lopsided win in the rivalry history.
5. Stanford After losing to Utah and questions arrived about Kevin Hogan, the Cardinal have recovered beating UCLA and taming Oregon State and their explosive offense to just 12 points.
6. Baylor The Bears continue to through the ball all over the field, they are averaging nearly 64 points a game thanks to QB Bryce Petty and receiver Antwan Goodley but things get tough this week against Oklahoma.
Stephen Morris
7. Miami There is no denying the Hurricanes are winning and sit at 7-0 but their last two wins have both been by three and their early-season victory against Florida is looking unimpressive by the week.
8. Clemson A week after getting mauled by Florida State, Clemson proved they will still be a factor in the ACC, handling a good Maryland team this past week.
9. Auburn The job Gus Malzahn has done this year with the Tigers has been extremely impressive, the Tigers are 7-1 but, Alabama and Georgia still await.
10. LSU The next couple weeks will prove just how good the two-loss Tigers are, they get a bye before Alabama and then another week off before their big matchup against Johnny Football and Texas A&M.
11. Missouri For a moment there Missouri looked like a real national title threat. But even up 17-0, the Tigers couldn't stifle a South Carolina comeback and then lost it in OT.
12. Oklahoma Blake Bell continues to play well, accounting for nearly 300 yards as the Sooners handed Texas Tech their first loss of the year. Can their defense stop Baylor on a Thursday night meeting?
13. Texas A&M The Aggies had no troubles with Vanderbilt and should dominate UTEP this week before a tough stretch that includes Mississippi State, LSU and Missouri.
14. Fresno State Although they were nearly upset by San Diego State, Fresno kept their BCS hopes alive even though Derek Carr wasn't himself. Their next four games should be wins but they need to impress pollsters.
15. Northern Illinois After a great 2012, Jordan Lynch has been even better this year, he has passed for 1,711 passing yards and 1,031 rushing yards. The 8-0 Huskies should go undefeated in this regular season.
16. Texas Tech The Red Raiders played pretty well against Oklahoma but they need their defense to improve if they hope to handle Oklahoma State this next week an Baylor in the future.
17. Oklahoma State The explosive offenses that Oklahoma State has possessed the past couple of years looks like it is starting to improve, it scored 58 in their win over Iowa State.
18. South Carolina No Connor Shaw, no problem for the Gamecocks as they used Mike Davis and Dylan Thompson to stun Mizzou in overtime. They still have a chance in the SEC East after their win.
19. UCLA A week after struggling to score against Stanford the Bruins were blown out by Oregon. Brett Hundley has been great this year but the offense has been inconsistent. Luckily, the tough part of their schedule is over.
20. Louisville After their loss to Central Florida that might have cost them a BCS bid, the Cardinals proved they are still a good team, embarrassing South Florida, 34-3.
21. Wisconsin The Badgers are playing very well, they ran all over Illinois but they still have no big wins, now that Northwestern, their signature win, has fallen apart.
22. UCF Blake Bortles dominated as the Golden Knights picked apart the 0-7 UConn Huskies, 62-17. Unless they have a hiccup, UCF should gain the conference's BCS berth over Louisville.
23. Michigan It is time the Wolverines start proving themselves. Their 6-1 mark will be put to a the test against Michigan State this next week and Nebraska and Ohio State still await.
24. Michigan State Even though their offense has been tough to watch at times this year the Spartans sit at 7-1 thanks to the Big Ten's best defense.
25. Notre Dame After a 3-2 start, Notre Dame has been fantastic winning their next three including a dominant victory over the hopeless Air Force Falcons. Stanford still remains on their schedule but a BCS run is still a possibility.
