Lots of movement this week, which should come as no surprise given the handful of losses that occurred to some top ranked teams.

The Top
TCU hopped Auburn this week. Look they completely shut down one of the most efficient teams on the road. Say what you want about scheduling strength, TCU is good. To me Auburn is closer to Michigan than they are to Oregon and/or TCU. The best teams in their conferences moved up and the Big 10 trio moved up as well.

The Middle
Here is your globing of two loss AQ schools followed up the one loss Utah and Nevada. Most of the teams here have met head to head and they are ranked accordingly. In most of the other polls the voters have Iowa above Arizona. Not only did Arizona beat Iowa, but they've played a more difficult schedule (as ranked by Saragin).

The Bottom
We see a few teams jump back in. Florida is looking like it's old self and USC has played a tough schedule so they get the nod here even though they haven't beaten anybody. UCF comes to the party. They are one of the most efficient teams and their two losses to ranked teams have been on the road and very, very close.

 As always I look forward to hearing from you.
