On Tuesday September 24, Top 10+1 Sports Blog released their weekly power poll. It should be said that the college football weekend was lacking in quality games, so many of the same teams are in the poll with one exception. Instead of having a lot of changeover, Top 10+1 sports, noticeably flip flopped a couple teams within the rankings. On Monday, the AP poll largely remained unchanged as well. However, Alabama remains number one, with Oregon a close second.
You can see the Top 10+1 Power Poll right here.
In an unbelievable fashion, Clemson dropped down from the top spot after a hard fought victory. The Tigers did struggle with North Carolina State, but that win might be better as the season progresses. It’s especially true if the Wolfpack continue to win.
The idle Oregon Ducks leapfrogged Alabama and Clemson to move into the top position. It’s hard to forget how dominant they’ve been in the first three weeks. It also didn’t help matters when Alabama struggled offensively against an overmatched Colorado State.
Another PAC 12 team, Stanford rounded out the top four. The Cardinal had an impressive victory over Arizona State. They may be headed for a top five collision with Oregon down the line.
Although Louisville has the easiest schedule of all the powerhouses this season, they come in at number five on the Top 10+1 Power Poll. The Cardinals have been more impressive on the defensive end, and sports blog confirms how relevant they are this season.
The lone newcomer into the poll is the Baylor. So far, they’ve put up phenomenal efforts on the offensive side of the ball. The Bears have been a treat to watch while scoring at an astronomical rate.
Here is the week 5 Top 10+1 Power Poll.
