NCAA Football: Washington at Utah Russ Isabella-USA TODAY Sports

1. Alabama 8-0

2. Michigan 8-0

3. Clemson 8-0

4. Washington 8-0 - The Huskies made their first statement of the season with their tough win at Utah. They aren’t moving going to move up any higher than they are, but they solidified themselves as a Top 4, Playoff team for now.

5. Ohio State 7-1

6. Louisville 7-1

7. Texas A&M 7-1

8. Florida 6-1

9. Penn State 6-2

10. Wisconsin 6-2

11. Nebraska 7-1

12. Auburn 6-2

13. Oklahoma 6-2

14. LSU 5-2

15. Washington State 6-2 - Luke Falk and the Cougars got their second-straight, gritty road win and might be the only team in the Pac-12 team other than Washington with a shot at getting into the Playoff conversation.

16. Colorado 6-2 - The Buffs come out of a bye week to face off against a UCLA team that should be getting Josh Rosen back. They are alone at the top of the South, but they are going to have to defend that spot with all their might in November.

17. Utah 7-2 - The Utes were almost able to pull off an upset against Washington and get themselves into the Top 10, but just quite weren’t able. They still control their destiny in the South though and could get a rematch with Washington in the Pac-12 Championship Game.

18. West Virginia 6-1

19. Baylor 6-1

20. Virginia Tech 6-2

21. North Carolina 6-2

22. Oklahoma State 6-2

23. USC 5-3 - The Trojans kept rolling by blowing out Cal and head into November as one of the scariest teams in the Pac-12. The Trojans look like a completely different team with Sam Darnold turning into the the man at QB.

24. Florida State 5-3

25. Western Michigan 8-0
