Rankings Update

After week 7 of the college football season, there have been a lot of changes and upsets since the season began.

Florida is still holding strong at number 1. They are off to a 5-0 start and have easily handled some good competition. Most recently they beat #4 LSU 13-3. After starting quarterback and Heisman trophy winner Tim Tebow suffered a concussion, many fans feared what would happen to the Gators, Tebow bounced back just fine and led his team to a solid victory against a tough opponent.

There is some discrepancy over the number two and three spots. In the USA today poll Texas has been chosen as the number 2 team, and are off to a 5-0 start. In the associated press poll Alabama is ranked number 2 and is off to a 6-0 start. Alabama is posted solid victories against number 7 Virginia Tech and number 20 Mississippi. Texas has also put up some good numbers, but have not faced any ranked opponents yet, but is looking at number 20 Oklahoma this week. Oklahoma started the season ranked third.

Rounding out the top ten is Virginia Tech, Boise State, USC, Ohio State, Cincinnati, Miami, and LSU. This weekends games will present new challenges to these teams, and new obstacles for them to face.
