Week 7 Notes:

Eight Teams Suffer Defeat in Wild Week Seven

In what has to be one of the biggest shakeups in ranking history, eight teams from the Top 25 suffered the agony of defeat in college football's week seven, including a pair from the top 10 - #6 Stanford and #7 Michigan - both of which fell to unranked teams on the road.

Stanford lost at Utah, 27-21, in a game in which the Cardinals trailed for nearly the final three quarters after the two teams combined for a 14-14 score at the end of the first quarter. Utah took a 27-14 lead at the start of the fourth quarter and held on for the win with a heroic goal-line stand at the end of the game. The Cardinal fell to #14 in this week's rankings.

Michigan, a team that had been on the ropes in previous encounters with Akron and UConn, finally faced their Waterloo at Penn State, losing, 43-40, in four overtimes. The Wolverines could be accused of playing too safe in the OTs, running the ball in efforts to produce field goals, instead of passing to achieve what could have been a winning touchdown. They drop from #7, all the way down to #20.

Georgia, ranked #11 going into their home game against unbeaten Missouri, were pummeled, 41-26, owing to injuries to key offensive players, but also a multitude of mistakes. The Bulldogs turned the ball over four times while the Mizzou were error-free. Georgia, now with two losses, falls to #24; Missouri rose from #25 to #18.

A loser in their annual clash with the Texas Longhorns, Oklahoma had no excuses in their 36-20 defeat, unable to generate meaningful offense nor to quiet the Texas offense, which rang up 24 first downs (13-of-20 third down conversions), 255 yards on the ground and 445 yards of total offense. Texas returns to the rankings with a 4-2 record in the #22 spot. Oklahoma just hangs on to #25 with a 5-1 mark, their season souring with each week QB Blake Bell proves he is not a quality passer (12-for-26 with two interceptions against the Longhorns).

Previously-ranked #17 Washington (4-2) was pounded by #1 Oregon, 45-24, their second consecutive loss sending them out of the Top 25.

Northwestern, #20 in last week's rankings, fell to 4-2 upon their loss at Wisconsin, a 35-6 rout which sent the Wildcats out of this week's rankings, replaced at #23 by the 4-2 Badgers.

#21 last week, Florida, now 4-2 after falling to #10 LSU, 17-6, was also booted from the rankings.

East Carolina, ranked 24th last week, lost, 36-33 in overtime at Tulane, though the Pirates cannot be far off the mark of quality as their visit to Tulane was their third straight road contest.

Rejoining to rankings were two Big Ten teams, Michigan State and Nebraska, coming in at #19 and #21, respectively. The Spartans roughed up Indiana, 42-28, while the Cornhuskers mangled Purdue, 44-7.

With the slew of losses, plenty of teams moved up, including UCLA, a 37-10 home winner over Cal, gaining from #8 to #6.

Following the Bruins was Florida State, idle this week, moved up to #7 from #9.

At #8 is Texas A&M, moving higher despite a close call with Mississippi, in a 41-38 victory gained in the closing seconds.

#9 belongs to Baylor, a 35-25 winner at Kansas State. LSU rounds out the top 10, while idle Miami (FL) took the #11 slot.

The top five remained intact and in order. After Oregon, #2 Clemson survived a scare at Boston College with a 24-14 victory; #3 Alabama took care of matters at Kentucky with a 48-7 demolition; #4 Ohio State had the week off, while #5 Louisville recorded a 24-10 victory at home over Rutgers on Thursday night.
