Notes

Biggest Movers: Mike Gundy and Oklahoma State ... mea culpa. A nice win by the Cowboys over Missouri vaults Oklahoma State 16 slots to #4 this week.

Florida straight up crushed LSU and jumps 9 spots to #5.

LSU and Vanderbilt drop 10 and 12 slots, respectively, for two reasons. The first - LSU didn't come to play in the Swamp, and Vanderbilt missed their opportunity to go 6-0 for the first time since 1928 (?!) falling to Mississippi State. The second - Brian got to see the Auburn Tigers in action this week and they are just not that good. Sure, their offense might have looked flat due to the departure of offensive coordinator Tony Franklin, but the Tigers had amassed a mere 100 yards in total offense through three quarters Saturday. In fact, if Auburn's defense and special teams didn't step to the plate yesterday, this game could have been a blowout. More on my trip to Auburn later this week.

The point of all this? Because I got to see Auburn in person this week, and because the Tigers looked terrible, Vandy and LSU's wins over Auburn are looking less impressive this week in my mind.
