Top Five Unchanged In CCR Top 128
September 28, 2014
With 3 of the top 11 teams idle and no upsets among them this past week, it comes as no surprise that there was very little movement in the upper echelon of the rankings. The top five remain in the same order and no one left the top 10.
Texas A&M holds the top spot for the second straight week, followed by Auburn, Florida State and Oklahoma. Ole Miss rounds out the top 5.
The second five is led by UCLA in 6th, ahead of Oregon, Notre Dame, Baylor and Alabama.
The SEC still dominates the rankings with a grip on the top 2 slots, and 3 of the top 5. Five SEC teams rank among the top 11, and 7 are among the top 19. Altogether, 8 of the conference's 14 teams are in the top 25.
While the SEC stayed strong, the PAC-12 lost 2 teams from the top 25. That conference now has just 5 teams after Arizona State and Washington exited behind losses to UCLA and Stanford, respectively. However, the PAC-12 has 2 schools in the top 7, and 4 in the top 16. The Big Ten is up to 4 members in the top 25 as Maryland enters at No. 25. The Big 12 has 3 entries in the top 25, of which 2 are in the top 9. The ACC is represented by just 2 teams. The remaining slots are filled by 2 independents (Notre Dame, BYU) and 1 school from Conference USA (Marshall).
The highest-ranked school from the other conferences finds East Carolina at No. 28 (The American), Northern Illinois 40th (MAC), Nevada 52nd (Mountain West) and Louisiana-Monroe 69th (Sun Belt).
The bottom 6 teams in the computer's top 128 are all from the MAC and Sun Belt.
