Week 7 Polls and Adjusted Polls

Week six is officially in the books, and a lot of movement occurred with Florida State, LSU, and Georgia all losing thus causing a lot of turnover in the top 10. Also, don't forget that TCU also lost to Iowa State and Nebraska was obliterated late by Ohio State.

First my own Top 25 will be listed with a few reasons left below.

Then it will be followed by a Combined Top 25 which averages out rankings between my poll, the AP Poll, and the USA Today Poll (those two were chosen because of how often they are referred to by people, the BCS will be added when that poll is released later in the season).

Following that you will see a ranking of every team in each poll by Strength of Schedule (SoS). The SoS will then be promptly used to create the Adjusted Combined Top 25 which takes into account the Sos (obviously) to get a final ranking of the top 25 teams in the nation.

Please enjoy and leave your comments below.

Dropped Out: 17 TCU, 22 UCLA, 23 Nebraska, 24 Texas Tech

This week, the top 25 got really shaken up thanks to a plethora of upsets. Alabama still retains the top spot (they didn't play this week). Oregon also doesn't move from the second spot after their beat down of Washington.

South Carolina moves all the way up to three because of how well they handled and destroyed previous number five Georgia (who falls down to 17 in the rankings).

Florida went out and took care of business (defensively) against former number six, LSU. The Tigers then proceeded to fall all the way to 11 in the rankings (hey, they lost to a team that was in the top 10 already).

Oregon State breaks into the top 10 this week because of previous top 10 teams getting upset, and the simple fact that the Beavers are playing some great football in the Pac-12 right now (they beat ranked opponents in Nebraska and UCLA, plus defeated a formidable team in U of A).

Arizona State manages to break into the top 25 this week (at 25) because of four teams dropping out and a lack of respectable teams making a bid for the rankings this week (specifically Michigan and Boise State).

Here we have a combination of the AP Poll, USA Today Poll, and my own personal poll that averages out the rankings. Each poll is weighted evenly and the highest point total a team can receive is 4500 (each poll has their own point value for each team which is added together then divided by 4500).

Alabama remains the top spot in this poll by just 0.042 points this week (down from 0.044 last week). South Carolina and West Virginia move into the three and four spots, respectfully.

Biggest Winners (previously unranked teams are not eligible):

1. Oregon State (+7) moves up the most out of any team again this week, they are looking better after every game.

2. Florida (+5) stuffed LSU (former number four) this week which enables them to move up five places.

3. Five Teams (+4), South Carolina, West Virginia, Oklahoma, Cincinnati, and Boise State all got bumped this week for their victories.

Biggest Losers:

1. TCU (-12) lost to Iowa State this week pretty convincingly. They fall out of the top 25.

2. Florida State (-9) also lost to an unranked team in N.C. State. Their BCS hopes are darkened considerably.

3. Georgia (-9) did lose to the number seven team, but they got embarrassed 35 to 7 which is why they fall this far.

One should notice that only three teams in the top 10 are undefeated, what does that mean about these undefeated teams? Most interesting part about the SoS this week is Baylor having the second hardest schedule in the nation (not just in the top 25). Florida State and Oregon's Sos fell hard this week which will ultimately cost them in the Adjusted Poll.

First thing first, this is a new ranking like the Combined Top 25 except that this poll is also weighted by strength of schedule.

Alabama finally becomes the number one on the Adjusted Poll with Florida State losing to N.C. State. Also, notice how Oregon falls from number three to number five this week.

Biggest Winners (previously unranked teams are not eligible):

1. West Virginia (+7) proved they can play with the top teams in the Big 12, their defense is concerning though.

2. Notre Dame (+6) obliterated Miami offensively and defensively, they are looking like a very difficult team to beat.

3. USC (+5) almost lost to Utah, but they showed some resilience and played well down the stretch.

Biggest Losers:

1. Florida State (-13) drops a "Baker's Dozen" this week following their loss to N.C. State.

2. TCU (-12) fell all the way to the bottom in this poll, and honestly if it wasn't for the USA Today Poll they wouldn't even be on this poll anymore.

3. Georgia (-7) was embarrassed on national television by SEC opponent South Carolina.
