The 2013 NCAA football rankings for Week 7 are out and if things keep going on the way they are we might as well just put Alabama in the BCS Championship game vs. Oregon or Clemson right now! Once again all three teams held serve this past weekend and looked strong in doing so.
According to an updated ESPN poll on Oct. 6, Alabama is still the overwhelming No. 1 team in the nation as they received 55 of the 60 first place votes from sportswriters across the US. The No. 2 Oregon Ducks once again received the other 5 first place votes.
Don’t look now but the Florida State Seminoles are making some big noise.
After routing Maryland, FSU has jumped from No. 8 to No. 6 in this week’s poll and in two week’s they will get their shot at No. 3 Clemson.
UCLA is also knocking on the door of the top ten as they move up from No. 12 to No. 11.
The hometown Michigan Wolverines moved up one spot from No. 19 to No. 18 after they beat up on the Minnesota Golden Gophers Saturday afternoon. Michigan improved to 5-0 and look to be on a collision course with Ohio State at the end of the season.
Dropping from the rankings this week were Arizona State, Ole Miss and Maryland.
