Honestly, I am running out of words to describe this college football season, as Week 10 just provided us with another exciting slate of games. Teams including the Washington Huskies, the Texas Longhorns, the Alabama Crimson Tide, the Georgia Bulldogs and the Oklahoma State Cowboys came away with thrilling wins over ranked opponents. Meanwhile, the Ole Miss Rebels and the Ohio State Buckeyes picked up wins but had a hard time fighting off their opponents' bid for an upset win. Unfortunately, the UCLA Bruins, the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and the Air Force Falcons were not as lucky, as all three teams were upset by unranked opponents.
Heading into Week 11, we will see several teams either improve their resumés or hurt them, as there are four games between ranked opponents. The Penn State Nittany Lions look to hand the Michigan Wolverines their first loss of the season. The Washington Huskies will try to keep their undefeated season alive against the defending Pac-12 champions, the Utah Utes. The Missouri Tigers hope to bounce back from their recent loss with a home win over the Tennessee Volunteers. And the Ole Miss Rebels are praying for a miracle as they look to pull off the impossible and beat the Georgia Bulldogs.
So, expect plenty of changes to the power rankings after Week 11. In the meantime, check out where your team stands in this week's updated college football power rankings.
1. Georgia Bulldogs (9-0) (Last Week: 1)
Against their toughest opponent, the Bulldogs' defense stepped up in the second half and kept alive their undefeated season and a run at a third straight national title.
2. Washington Huskies (9-0) (Last Week: 2)
Michael Penix Jr was stellar, but running back Dillon Johnson was the player of the game, rushing for over 250 yards and four touchdowns in another big win for the Huskies.
3. Florida State Seminoles (9-0) (Last Week: 3)
The Seminoles got off to a slow start Saturday, but both the offense and defense eventually settled in and clinched Florida State a spot in the Atlantic Coast Conference title game.
4. Ohio State Buckeyes (9-0) (Last Week: 4)
The Buckeyes' offense is still scraping by, but running back TreVeyon Henderson is starting to become a difference-maker — and that should make things a lot easier for them going forward.
5. Michigan Wolverines (9-0) (Last Week: 5)
It was the same result for the Wolverines as it has been all season, as their defense is suffocating and their run game is unstoppable. But this Saturday, they finally have a real test as they face Penn State.
6. Oregon Ducks (8-1) (Last Week: 6)
This game was literally over by halftime, as the Ducks handed Cal one more a— whooping before both teams get ready to leave the Pac-12 next season.
7. Texas Longhorns (8-1) (Last Week: 7)
The Longhorns find ways to almost lose games and are lucky Kansas State was doing the exact thing, or else their playoff hopes could have vanished after blowing a two-score lead on Saturday.
8. Penn State Nittany Lions (8-1) (Last Week: 8)
After the previous week's performance, Penn State's defense bounced back — allowing negative 50 rushing yards and forcing four turnovers — as the Nittany Lions prepare for their bid to knock off Michigan this weekend.
9. Alabama Crimson Tide (8-1) (Last Week: 9)
The Crimson Tide were ready for a shootout, but their defense made some necessary stops to keep Alabama undefeated in conference play.
10. Ole Miss (8-1) (Last Week: 12)
The Rebels almost fell into the the Aggies' trap game; now they get ready to put their season on the line with a road trip to take on the Georgia Bulldogs.
11. Oregon State Beavers (7-2) (Last Week: 15)
Oregon State has some cleaning up to do and will use Stanford as that opportunity before closing out the season against Washington and Oregon.
12. Louisville (8-1) (Last Week: 17)
Some thought Virginia Tech would upset Louisville, but the Cardinals' 34-3 victory Saturday proved otherwise. Louisville now is just one win away from clinching a spot in the ACC title game.
13. Oklahoma State Cowboys (7-2) (Last Week: NR)
The Cowboys sent the Sooners a farewell gift of winning the final Bedlam Game for the foreseeable future and eliminating the Sooners from playoff contention.
14. Missouri Tigers (7-2) (Last Week: 14)
It was a tough second half for the Tigers, but Missouri is still one of the top teams in the country and should finish with a 10-win season.
15. Tennessee Volunteers (7-2) (Last Week: 18)
The Vols' next two games are against Missouri and Georgia, so things are either going to go really bad or go really well for Tennessee over the next two weekends.
16. Kansas Jayhawks (7-2) (Last Week: 19)
The Jayhawks will need some help along the way but currently sit just one game behind Oklahoma State for a spot in the Big 12 conference title game.
17. Oklahoma Sooners (7-2) (Last Week: 10)
Welp — make that two straight losses for the Sooners, as their conference and playoff hopes are gone. I guess Texas was the Sooners' Super Bowl.
18. Tulane Green Wave (8-1) (Last Week: 20)
Everyone gets a bad game late in the season, and this was Tulane's; and after Air Force's loss, the Green Wave look to be on course for a second-straight New Year's Six bowl game.
19. LSU Tigers (6-3) (Last Week: 13)
The Tigers are holding on, but it is clear that their defense couldn't stop a cold and their offense is nothing without quarterback Jayden Daniels.
20. Arizona Wildcats (6-3) (Last Week: NR)
Call me crazy and that other teams deserve this spot, but the Wildcats are one of the hottest teams in the country with three straight wins over AP Top 25 opponents.
