Week 5 Notes:

Top Ten Wipeout

College football's fifth week of action saw four teams bumped from the top ten and four more from the bottom six. Those in the middle won or - as in the case of Utah - did not play and received a move up, for the Utes, that meant a rise into the top ten, at #9, deservedly so, as Michigan, their 24-17 victim in week one, bowled over Maryland, 28-0, a week after trampling BYU, 31-0.

Don't look now, but the 4-1 Wolverines - ranked #24 this week - are for real, having outscored their last four opponents a combined 122-14. They have a huge meeting with Northwestern this Saturday at the Big House.

Getting back to those four top ten teams - #6 Georgia was dismantled by Alabama, 38-10, dropping the Bulldogs all the way down to #16 and hoisting the Tide back up to #10.. #7 UCLA was likewise humiliated, losing at home to Arizona State, 38-23, dropping the Bruins to #18 in the current rankings. Because they have two losses, Arizona State is unranked.

Ole Miss, #8 in the week 4 rankings, was stunned by Florida, now 5-0, 38-10, and, Notre Dame failed at Clemson, 24-22, in the only close loss from the top teams. The Rebels check in at #17; Notre Dame, #19. The Tigers remained at #5.

It wasn't an easy week for others high in the rankings, as #1 Ohio State struggled to a 34-27 win at Indiana and #3 Michigan State was tested by Purdue, finally overcoming the Boilermakers, 24-21. Staying in the Big Ten, Northwestern hammered Minnesota, 27-0, to remain unbeaten at 5-0 and move up to #12.

The conference shocker was provided by the Hawkeyes of Iowa, who put down the clamps on Wisconsin, prevailing in a 10-6 victory on the road. That left Wisconsin with two losses and subsequently out of the Top 25. 5-0 Iowa is up to #15.

#2 TCU made quick work of Texas, ripping the Longhorns, 50-7. At #4, Baylor dispatched Texas Tech, 63-35. Oklahoma moved into the #8 spot with a 44-24 win over West Virginia, handing the Mountaineers their first loss of the season.

Florida State put Wake Forest to sleep, 24-16. The Seminoles check in at #6, up from #10 in the prior week. Texas A&M took care of business at home, taming the Mississippi State Bulldogs, 30-17. The Aggies are now up to #7 in the rankings.

Down near the bottom #20 West Virginia, #21 Miami (FL), #22 Wisconsin, and #23 Arizona all took losses and dropped out.

Cal made more noise in the PAC-12, defeating Washington State, 34-28, putting the Golden Bears at #20. Duke slipped by Boston College, 9-7, and gets rewarded with #22 this week with a 4-1 mark. Stanford returns to the rankings at #23 after taking down Arizona, 55-17. The Cardinal's only loss was in week one, to Northwestern, a team that's proven they belong. Look for fireworks when the Bruins travel to NoCal this week to meet Stanford on Saturday night.
