SB Nation BlogPoll College Football Top 25 Rankings "
Again, little movement this week. I did move Florida up after their second win over a top ten team. The biggest drops were South Carolina, who was blown out by the Gators and West Virginia who dropped all the way out. I thought about keeping them in, but just couldn't look past the fact they had their second straight blowout loss in consecutive weeks. Even against great teams, you can't lose by 76 points and expect to be ranked.
On the Big East front, Cincinnati fell out after dropping a game to Toledo. The Rockets, meanwhile, are 7-1 and their only loss came on the road to Arizona in overtime. For that, I found a spot for them in my rankings.
