*Clearly, the big story this week is Oklahoma State vaulting up 17 spots into the top five. I put a premium on winning on the road. Doing so against a strong Texas A&M squad counts for a lot.
*Why drop Stanford? The Cardinal’s schedule has stunk.
*I’m finally catching up with Georgia Tech. That offense can move it. The Yellow Jackets have done most of their damage at home, so I struggle moving them too much farther up right now.
*I freely admit that I’m probably underrating Michigan’s accomplishments to this point.
*Key games this week: Nebraska at Wisconsin, Clemson at Virginia Tech, Alabama at Florida, Texas at Iowa State (seriously), Baylor at Kansas State (seriously).
