InsideMizzou Top 25: Week 6

With not too many upsets happening this week in college football, how much did the InsideMizzou poll change? Are the Tigers still ranked? Go inside to see who the new #1 is.

#1 Alabama (6-0) A dominant win against Ole Miss on Saturday is just another impressive performance by the Crimson Tide.

#2 Florida (5-0) The Gators got Tim Tebow back and they beat a very good Louisiana State team on the road. The schedule is very favorable the rest of the way.

#3 Texas (5-0) Even with a win, I have Texas falling 2 spots because I like to keep my rankings flexible and the Longhorns looked iffy in their win against Colorado.

#4 Boise State (5-0) The Broncos are undefeated, but they have to go on the road to face a not-so-bad Tulsa team this Wednesday.

#5 Virginia Tech (5-1) I don't like putting teams with a loss over undefeated teams, but the Hokies are obviously one of the top 5 teams in the country.

#6 Cincinnati (5-0) The Bearcats could be battling for a Big East title this Thursday against the Bulls of USF. If they win, an undefeated season isn't out of the question.

#7 USC (4-1) Notre Dame is up next in the Trojans' quest to finish 11-1 and complain about being left out of the National Championship Game again.

#8 Iowa (6-0) The Hawkeyes win over Michigan was another quality win, but what was up with the fans rushing the field?

#9 LSU (5-1) The offensive performance against Florida was terrible, but they still have a chance to win the SEC West in their head-to-head with Alabama next month.

#10 Miami (FL) (4-1) The cupcake against Florida A&M didn't really prove anything about the Hurricanes, so they stay below LSU.

#11 Oklahoma State (4-1) Their struggles with an average Texas A&M team were a little surprising, but it may take a while to adjust to life without Dez Bryant.

#12 Oregon (5-1) The Ducks have now won 5 in a row after beating an improved UCLA team on the road.

#13 Ohio State (5-1) Their win against Wisconsin was key for their Big 10 title hopes, but they just seem like the same old Buckeyes.

#14 Nebraska (4-1) The tough fought win in Columbia could be a signal that the Huskers are back, but a win against Texas Tech would solidify that assumption.

#15 Penn State (5-1) Eastern Illinois obviously wasn't a team that the Nittany Lions were worried about, but it was nice to see them take care of business, 52-3.

#16 TCU (5-0) I'm sorry, but close wins against Clemson and Air Force don't impress me as much as other people.

#17 South Florida (5-0) Cincinnati comes to town on Thursday in what should be a must watch battle of the undefeateds on ESPN.

#18 Kansas (5-0) The Jayhawks are the least impressive undefeated team, with their latest escape being Iowa State Cyclones at home.

#19 Houston (4-1) The Cougars still deserve some national respect even with their embarrassing loss to UTEP.

#20 Georgia Tech (5-1) The Yellow Jackets get a chance to shake up the polls this week with a matchup at home against Virginia Tech.

#21 BYU (5-1) The 59-point explosion against UNLV may have been just what the Cougars needed to gain confidence going into Mountain West play.

#22 Oklahoma (3-2) It hurts me to put the Sooners in the top 25 with their 2 losses, but it is obvious that they are a different team with Sam Bradford back.

#23 Missouri (4-1) A loss against Nebraska is disappointing, but the Tigers have an opportunity to beat a stumbling Oklahoma State team this week.

#24 Notre Dame (4-1) The Fighting Irish face continue to pull out close wins against unranked teams, but they get a chance to get a quality win against USC this week.

#25 South Carolina (5-1) The close win against Kentucky wasn't that impressive, but their record gets them ranked in my eyes.
