Texas Tech and Oklahoma move up, Stanford and Baylor move down. The Gators slide a bit, but are still solidly in the top ten, and their wins over Texas A&M and LSU still look good.
For details about how we arrive at these rankings, please see last week's edition.
Another wild weekend for college football reshuffles the power rankings a bit. Just a quick refresher on how the rankings work, scoring offense (SO) plus scoring defense (SD) plus win/loss record (WL) times strength of schedule (SoS).

Auburn is still pulling up the rear in the SEC at No. 99, and Idaho takes over the bottom overall with a score of 0.2451.
Idle Georgia drops to No. 27, while Oklahoma jumps 12 spots on the strength of the beating they delivered to Texas. Arizona and Michigan State also drop out of the top 25. Not listed in the top 25, Virginia Tech was the week's biggest mover, jumping 35 spots to No. 57 after a big win over Duke (which sums up all you need to know about the ACC this year).
The Big 12 is holding strong with seven teams in the top 25. It really speaks to Iowa State's strength of schedule that the Cyclones are still ranked just outside the top 10 with two losses.
Notre Dame loses their top spot after its controversial win over Stanford. The Irish are one of six teams (along with Alabama, Texas Tech, West Virginia, Florida and Oregon) to remain in the top 10 from last week.
Texas Tech hasn't been getting much love from the pollsters, but Tommy Tuberville is putting together a great season in Lubbock. The Raiders are averaging over 40 points per game, and have played one of the tougher schedules so far this year.
