TEC's College Football Top 10, Week 5

Alabama took care of business against a formerly intimidating Gator squad, but the second-ranked Buckeyes were less impressive at lowly Illinois.  With a statement win over a very solid Stanford team, Oregon jumps Texas Christian in the rankings.  And with the victory over Texas, Oklahoma also jumps idle Nebraska, while Wisconsin and the aforementioned Gators and Cardinal end up on the outside looking in.  New to the list are undefeated Auburn, Utah and Arizona.

Rankings as of October 4, 2010
#1  Alabama (5-0), 730 pts.
#2  Ohio State (5-0), 630 pts.
#3  Boise State (4-0), 615 pts.
#4  Oregon (5-0), 575 pts.
#5  Texas Christian (5-0), 540 pts.
#6  Oklahoma (5-0), 460 pts.
#7  Nebraska (4-0), 445 pts.
#8  Auburn (5-0) 365 pts.
#9  Utah (4-0), 340 pts.
#10  Arizona (4-0), 300 pts.

Having initially believed the Volunteers pulled off the upset against nationally ranked Louisiana State, University of Tennessee defensive end Chris Walker collapses in disbelief as LSU celebrates Stevan Ridley's game-winning touchdown on the final play of the game, which resulted from an illegal procedure penalty that allowed the Tigers an additional opportunity to score.  The Vols were edged in the end, 16-14.  (Photo by the Associated Press)
