2011 NCAA football week 8 top 25

In the interest of time and intention of providing more blogging this week, these rankings will not include a team review/preview.

The weekend made for an interesting week eight top 25. Three undefeated schools lost, narrowing the list of teams with zero wins and making the rankings more top-heavy. Michigan, Illinois and Georgia Tech all have one loss now. Gone from the rankings are Texas, Baylor, Wake Forest and Florida. You’ll also notice I gave a lot of credit to the remaining undefeated schools this week, as well as those with one loss at the end of the top 25. I believe that at this point your record should indicate how good you are, and very few one or two loss schools deserve high praise.

The BCS standings are out now, and at the top is LSU. I don’t necessarily agree with that, but at least Alabama is .0003 points right behind them. The BCS rankings have always been crazy though, and what is listed now can change drastically in the next two weeks. After all, only the 2004 USC Trojans and the 1999 Florida State Seminoles won the national championship after being ranked number one in the first BCS standings.

The game of the week looked like it would be Arizona State vs. Oregon during the week, but it ended up being Kansas State vs. Texas Tech. The game went back and forth and Kansas State showed grit in pulling off a win against a conference opponent on the road. Collin Klein is making a name for himself in the Big-12. Texas State always make for exciting football, even though they hardly win the exciting games they play in. Either way, while other teams who promised to bring a great game and faltered, Kansas State and Texas Tech came through.
