InsideMizzou Top 25: Week 7

The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets made the biggest upset of this college football week, but what other teams also saw themselves rise in the rankings after an entertaining Saturday in football? Go inside this FREE READ to see Jason's rankings.

#1 Alabama (7-0) Another ranked team goes down at the hands of the Crimson Tide. They are on cruise control and in my mind the clear #1 team in the nation.

#2 Florida (6-0) The Gators struggled with an unranked Arkansas team at home on Saturday. The Razorbacks aren't terrible, but Florida shouldn't have needed a last second field goal to win.

#3 Texas (6-0) Even though the Sooners turned the ball over 5 times, the Longhorns still struggled to score and only won by 3. Could the be vulnerable?

#4 Cincinnati (6-0) A easy win against the previously undefeated South Florida Bulls while missing their star QB for most of the game shows how good the Bearcats are.

#5 Iowa (7-0) The Hawkeyes are one of the most underrated undefeated teams I have ever seen. They continue to rack up big wins with their victory over Wisconsin.

#6 Boise State (6-0) Boise is closer to controlling it's own destiny in the BCS, but they need to start dominating inferior opponents for that to be warranted.

#7 USC (5-1) They needed a goal line stop to beat #25 Notre Dame, but the Trojans are still the best 1 loss team in the nation.

#8 LSU (5-1) The Tigers' bye week came at a good time after a punishing loss to Florida. Can they regroup and beat the Crimson Tide in 3 weeks?

#9 Miami (FL) (5-1) The Hurricanes finally get back to conference play this week against Clemson after 3 straight out of conference games.

#10 Oregon (5-1) Their upcoming game against Washington looked like a good one 3 weeks ago, but now the Huskies are 3-4 and the Ducks should be expected to dominate.

#11 Georgia Tech (6-1) The Yellow Jackets take the biggest leap in my rankings because of their impressive win over Virginia Tech.

#12 Oklahoma State (5-1) The win over Mizzou wasn't pretty, but the Cowboys are learning to win without their 2 top playmakers.

#13 Penn State (6-1) Minnesota isn't a bad football team, so the Nittany Lions' 20-0 win against the Golden Gophers was pretty impressive.

#14 TCU (6-0) We'll see what kind of team this is when they travel to BYU this weekend. This is their chance to get in the BCS discussion.

#15 Virginia Tech (5-2) The Hokies impressed me in the first 6 weeks of the year, so their bad loss to Georgia Tech was very confusing.

#16 Houston (5-1) Case Keenum already has over 2,400 passing yards and 19 TD's. He is the reason they are dangerous.

#17 BYU (6-1) Can the Cougars win against the undefeated Horned Frogs of TCU this week and show that they deserve to be in the BCS discussion.

#18 Pittsburgh (6-1) No one is paying attention to these guys, but the Panthers should be one of the favorites in the Big East.

#19 Ohio State (5-2) As I said last week, the "same old Buckeyes" laid an egg against Purdue and has an uphill battle ahead of them if they want to win the Big 10.

#20 Texas Tech (5-2) Could there be a QB controversy in Lubbock? Behind the arm of Steven Sheffield, the Red Raiders have got in a groove in the past 2 weeks.

#21 Nebraska (4-2) I guess Husker fans got a little too excited a little too fast. Nebraska was brought back to earth when Texas Tech whooped them 31-10.

#22 West Virginia (5-1) They don't have a signature win yet, but they will get their chance when they play Cincinnati and Pittsburgh in back-to-back weeks.

#23 Utah (5-1) Their only loss is to Oregon, but they haven't been dominant against inferior competition, so I have them lower than most people do.

#24 South Carolina (5-2) They kept it competitive with Alabama, but the Gamecocks just didn't have enough talent to pull off the upset.

#25 Kansas (5-1) After flirting with defeat in the last 2 weeks, the Jayhawks finally lost to a bad opponent. How will they respond this week against OU?
