College football scores from week 5 are complete now. Most of the college football scores week 5 coverage went according to plan, with the higher ranked team winning easily, but there will still some upsets in the nation. The first game that could be considered an upset was No. 24 Michigan State beating No. 11 Wisconsin, and proving that they have been undervalued as a team so far this season.
No. 18 USC lost to Washington for the second straight year, dropping them in the AP Top 25, and giving Washington a very nice Pac-10 victory. No. 23 North Carolina State, which just made it into the polls, was upended by a Virginia Tech team that is intent on still making waves in college football this season. Each win by that team helps Boise State, so they have more than just the local fans rooting for them each week.
Two other ranked teams fell on Saturday as well, as the changing of the guard appeared to take place with Florida and Texas both losing. Florida will almost certainly fall out of the top five, and this could be the end of Texas in the top 25 at this point. We will have to wait and see, but the outlook is not good for Texas right now.
No. 9 Stanford also lost to No. 4 Oregon in a hard fought game that got away from them in the fourth quarter. This opens up two spots in the top 10 that could likely be filled by LSU and someone else on Sunday when the newest college football rankings are released.
