Football Update

Going into week 11, there have been some dramatic changes in the top 10 rankings for Division I football. Florida is still holding strong in the number 1 spot, and have a 9-0 mark on the season. This weekend they will take on South Carolina at South Carolina, and will yet again be challenged for the top spot.
Alabama and Texas sit at numbers 2 and 3 respectively, and there is some controversy in the different polls who belongs in which spot. In the BCS standings, Alabama sits at number 2. In the Associated Press top 25, Texas claims the spot. In either situation, both teams remain unbeaten and boast 9-0 records.
The TCU Horned Frogs are at number 4 in both polls, and will face one of their toughest challenges of the season this weekend when they take on number 16 Utah.

One of the most drastic changes that Division I football saw over the weekend was the then number 4 Iowa Hawkeyes get taken down by unranked Northwestern. It was the biggest upset of the week, and it saw the Hawkeyes drop from number 4 to number 10, and also lose their undefeated record.

The big game to watch this weekend is the Big Ten Championship matchup between number 10 Iowa, and number 11 Ohio State. The game will be played Saturday at 3:30pm at Ohio State. The Hawkeyes enter the game with a 9-1 record, and the Bukeyes bring an equally impressive 8-2 record to the contest.

Rounding out the top 10 you have 5. Cincinnati 6. Boise State 7. Georgia Tech 8. LSU and 9. USC. Teams 1 through 6 all remain unbeaten on the year.
