CFB Week 6 Polls and Adjusted Polls

Week five is in the books and we are getting ready for week six. After last week's debacle with Stanford losing and my post coming out after they had already lost, I made it a point to have this one in before Monday morning. Where does Stanford fall to? Does West Virginia move up with their impressive win? What teams are moving into the top 25? All that will be found out down below the jump!

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: 21 Michigan St.

The top 25 here is pretty much self-explanatory again because a lot of top 25 teams didn't play this weekend. Alabama remains my consensus number one, and I don't feel like I need to justify that.

Yes, LSU drops to 6 for me. Why? Barely edging out Auburn and then turning around and letting Towson stay in the game against you for 4 quarters is unacceptable for a top 5 team.

I am cautious about moving up West Virginia because even though they are great offensively, their defense is appalling and I am not sure how it will hold up as their conference play continues.

Stanford only drops to 16 for me and that's because I feel like their loss to Washington was a fluke. They got caught off-guard by a program that they expected to beat but forgot that Washington is a better program then the LSU loss suggests.

Baylor stays ranked because they lost to a better team, and in that loss they put up 63 points in a very inspired effort on the road.

Lastly, I didn't rank ASU (even though I want to), because I didn't like their win at Cal. If they can handedly beat Colorado in two weeks or depending on the quality of teams making a bid for the last spots in the top 25 next week, then we can talk.

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 .044 points. Meanwhile, LSU lost their hold on the third spot and is not too far ahead of Georgia (just a .010 lead).

Biggest Winners (previously unranked teams are not eligible):

1. Oregon State (+3) jumped three spots with their win over former top 25 team Arizona.

2. TCU (+2) moves up the rankings after edging out SMU and remaining undefeated.

3. UCLA (+2) is starting to earn their respect back, UCLA should be a scary team for us ASU boys to play in four weeks.

Biggest Losers:

1. Stanford (-9) big surprise here. Losing to an unranked team is never good especially if you are in the top 10.

2. Baylor (-3) falls out of the top 25 in this list, however they really shouldn't.

3. Boise State (-3) the fact that Boise is still ranked in any poll is still amazing to me. Years ago they weren't getting enough respect and now they are getting too much.

Florida jumped to the top of this ranking (attribute that to the SEC). Oregon State also moved up the second slot, they are just looking like an all-around non-fluke of a team. TCU rounds out the bottom of this list and in fact almost rounds out the bottom of the entire NCAA Strength of Schedule rankings involving all 124 teams (why are they ranked with that schedule? They should be winning games with that favorable joke of a schedule, but it will move up when they start playing Big 12 teams again).

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

Florida State becomes the new number one this week as Oregon drops down to three and ‘Bama stays at two (but they are only .015 behind FSU).

Biggest Winners (previously unranked teams are not eligible):

1. Nebraska (+7) jumps a lot after barely beating rival Wisconsin.

2. Mississippi State (+5) didn't play this week but shuffling in the top 25 helps this SEC team.

3. Texas (+4) came out and beat Oklahoma St. (previously #18) pretty decisively.

Biggest Losers:

1. Stanford (-9), I don't know if I have to repeat myself here but they lost to an unranked team.

2. Notre Dame (-5) lost ground in this ranking even though they didn't play this week.

3. Louisville (-3) didn't look all that great in their win this weekend which is why they drop here.
