College football rankings week 6 revelations will be made today. Among the college football rankings week 6 changes will be the Texas Longhorns falling out of the top 25. It is assumed that because No. 21 Texas lost again that they could see themselves on the outside of the polls this week. This is their second loss of the season, and while they have lost to two good teams so far, they also don’t have any quality wins within their schedule so far. It seems a changing of the guard is taking place in the Big 12 Conference right now.
In addition to the Texas loss was Florida falling to Alabama on Saturday (31-6), and the one sided victory should drop Florida out of the top 10. We had stated here that Florida was being overrated at this point of the season, and the team didn’t really show up against a much better Alabama team this weekend. They weren’t the only top 10 team to loss though, as No. 9 Stanford fell to No. 4 Oregon (52-31). That win should bring even more respect to Oregon, but with the three teams ranked ahead of them winning easily, they won’t be moving up.
No. 11 Wisconsin fell to Big Ten rival Michigan State, which could put the Spartans up into the top 15, and should cause this Wisconsin team to take a bit of a dive. That opens up two higher spots in the polls, and that should allow LSU to make its way into the top 10. The other new top 10 team isn’t quite as easy to predict, but it is a sure bet that someone is going to make a jump that will surprise college football fans. It’s entirely possible that team could be Utah which had an off week, or maybe even Arizona, which also had their bye this week.
Further down in the polls, No. 18 USC lost to Washington and No. 23 North Carolina State lost to Virginia Tech. Could Virginia Tech appear back in the polls with two losses? They deserve it more than any other two loss team. With Oklahoma State moving to 4-0 they should enter the AP Top 25 today, and West Virginia could make another appearance depending on how voters are feeling.
