Week 5 is complete. We still have a bunch of unbeaten teams. Here is our current power rankings in College Football.

  1. Alabama Crimson Tide (5-0) – Took the weekend off, but remain our top team in the poll. It should be a fun game this weekend against the Aggies.
  2. Ohio State Buckeyes (6-0) – The Buckeyes methodically took down Michigan State, a team that was also in the Top 25 rankings. Now, the Buckeyes will get a few extra days to prepare for a Friday night affair coming up on the road at Northwestern
  3. Clemson Tigers (5-0) – The Tigers, like Alabama, got the weekend off and remained in their spot. This is a team that barely held on to win at North Carolina. Now, a rivalry game, but one they should win Saturday at home against Florida State.
  4. Oklahoma Sooners (5-0) – Oklahoma allowed the first score of the game but had no issues from there. The Sooners scored 45 points and won by 25 on the road at Kansas. Next, the Sooners will play in the Red River Rivalry game against Texas.
  5. Georgia Bulldogs (5-0) – Another team to start slow, but a big second half led the Bulldogs to their fifth straight win. Georgia beat Tennessee on the road 43-14. The Bulldogs will host South Carolina on Saturday.
  6. LSU Tigers (5-0) – The Tigers scored 42 points on Utah State and came away with a 36 point win on Saturday. Now, LSU will play another huge game as they play host to Florida, a game in which they are large favorites.
  7. Penn State Nittany Lions (5-0) – The Nittany Lions made quick and easy work of Purdue at home on Saturday. Penn State keeps rolling along, without a ton of recognition. They get a tough test on the road at Iowa on Saturday.
  8. Florida Gators (6-0) – The Gators are another team that many are not talking about. Florida won their sixth straight game, this time upsetting Auburn at home. Now, the Gators will play another Top 10 affair as they are at LSU on Saturday.
  9. Wisconsin Badgers (5-0) – Wisconsin played three nonconference games and did not allow a point in any of those three games. The latest was a 48-0 blasting over Kent State. The Badgers remain home to host Michigan State this weekend.
  10. Boise State Broncos (5-0) – The Broncos moved to 5-0 with their 38-13 win over UNLV. Boise State will now remain at home and take on Hawaii on Saturday.
  11. SMU Mustangs (6-0) – It was not pretty, it was not easy – but SMU moved to 6-0 with a triple-overtime win over Tulsa. SMU will take this weekend off, before hosting Temple.
  12. Wake Forest Demon Deacons (5-0) – The Demon Deacons took the weekend off, and prepared for their Week 7 tilt. This game will be a test, despite being at home, as the Louisville Cardinals come to town.
  13. Notre Dame Fighting Irish (4-1) – The Fighting Irish won 52-0 over Bowling Green on Saturday. A big rivalry game will take place this Saturday, as USC comes to town.
  14. Texas Longhorns (4-1) – The Longhorns could really make a push at the Top 10 with an upset win in the Red River Rivalry game on Saturday. Texas and Oklahoma should be a great college football game.
  15. Auburn Tigers (5-1) – Auburn took their first loss of the season on Saturday. The Tigers could not get the offense going, with just 13 points in the road loss. Auburn will take this weekend off, before playing at Arkansas on October 19th.
  16. Michigan Wolverines (4-1) – It may not have been pretty, but the Michigan win over Iowa was a big one for their confidence. Despite the early loss, the Wolverines are still in a spot to compete in a major bowl game. Michigan is at Illinois on Saturday.
  17. Iowa Hawkeyes (4-1) – Iowa dropped a couple of spots in the rankings after failing to get into the end zone on Saturday. The Hawkeyes will not have much time to pout, as they face another tough test on Saturday at home against Penn State.
  18. Oregon Ducks (4-1) – The Ducks did not score much, but their defense brought their “A” game. Oregon came away with their fourth straight win; 17-7 over California. The Ducks will remain at home for a Friday night game against Colorado.
  19. Utah Utes (4-1) –  Utah scored 38 points at home and beat Washington State to end September. This weekend, they were off in preparation for Oregon State. The Utes are still in a decent spot to compete in the Pac-12 title game.
  20. Arizona State Sun Devils (4-1) – Another Pac-12 team in the standings. Arizona State did not play this weekend and will stay at home and take on Washington State on Saturday.

  23. Memphis Tigers (5-0) – Another team that has yet to lose. The Tigers scored 52 points on the road at UL-Monroe. Now, Memphis will head out on the road and take on Temple on Saturday.
  24. Minnesota Golden Gophers (5-0) – PJ Fleck and his crew have won their first five games of the season. The Golden Gophers are tied with Wisconsin at the top of the Big Ten West. Minnesota hosts Nebraska in a conference affair on Saturday.
  25. Cincinnati Bearcats (4-1) – Cincinnati’s lone loss was to Ohio State, and their recent win over Central Florida vaults them into the Top 25. The Bearcats will play at Houston on Saturday.
