TEC's College Football Top 10, Week 5

While the top five teams in the land are clear, it's the new entries into the remaining half of the top 10 that fascinate the most. Clemson, by virtue of their third consecutive win over a nationally ranked opponent (for the first time in the program's 115-year history), arrive in the upper tier. Joining the upstart Tigers are Michigan and Texas, each of whom replace Nebraska, South Carolina and Texas A&M.

It seems the Wolverines and Longhorns are back in form after a lengthy hiatus. Texas will be tested first, as the top-ranked Sooners await them in the Red River Shootout this weekend.

1. Oklahoma (def. Ball State, 62-6), 4-0, 630 pts.
2. Alabama (def. Florida, 38-10), 5-0, 625 pts.
3. Louisiana State (def. Kentucky, 35-7), 5-0, 620 pts.
t-4. Stanford (def. UCLA, 45-19), 4-0, 565 pts.
t-4. Wisconsin (def. Nebraska, 48-17), 5-0, 565 pts.
6. Boise State (def. Nevada, 30-10), 4-0, 490 pts.
7. Oklahoma State (Bye), 4-0, 435 pts.
8. Clemson (def. Virginia Tech, 23-3), 5-0, 410 pts.
9. Michigan (def. Minnesota, 58-0), 5-0, 345 pts.
10. Texas (def. Iowa State, 37-14), 4-0, 315 pts.

An unidentified Georgia fan snapped a pic of Mississippi State defensive back Nickoe Whitley watering the legendary hedges at Sanford Stadium. Evidently he thought nobody would notice. That is vintage Mississippi State.
