Whether an effort to build hype, or a legitimate ranking change, Texas has moved up a spot to number two on the Associated Press college football poll released today. With Ohio State number one, that sets up one versus two Saturday when the Buckeyes travel to Texas. It seems kind of convenient Notre Dame would fall two spots in the rankings, despite a win on Saturday. I guess voters felt either Texas or Ohio State would fall after this week, allowing them to move Notre Dame back up, assuming the Fighting Irish beats #19 Penn State.
It's just interesting to see all of the movement this week. USC jumped from #6 to #3, Tennessee jumped from #23 to #11, and Michigan #14 to #10. Notre Dame, West Virginia, Oklahoma, Nebraska, TCU and Arizona State all FELL in the rankings despite a win.
