Fell Out: #20 Florida, #22 Texas, #25 Miami

Newcomers: #21 Minnesota, #23 Florida State, #25 Kansas State


#25 Kansas State. Upsetting Oklahoma is definitely a huge win, and the Wildcats merit consideration to be ranked. But they still lost to Tulane, and Kansas is still undefeated. Rank the damn Jayhawks!


#21 Minnesota. It’s nice seeing the Golden Gophers ranked, but I believe they are even better than where they are in the polls. Running back Mo Ibrahim is healthy and showing why he is one of the best backs in the Big Ten, and the Gophers could be 6-0 when they travel to Penn State on Oct. 22nd.
