Weekly College Football Rankings Update

This week, 21 of the top 25 ranked teams were in action. But there likely won't be much movement in the polls - especially near the top.

The top ten teams in the three major polls/rankings, (The BCS rankings, the AP Poll, and the ESPN/USA Today Poll) all have already won their games, with the exception of Nebraska, who is currently playing Texas A&M at the time of this post.

There are still some ranked teams in action, but thus far today, only Iowa and Miami have been the only ranked teams in all three major polls to lose. Northwestern, ranked No. 25 only in the ESPN/USA Today poll, also fell. With so few teams losing so far, this week's polls could be similar to last week's.

Out of the teams unranked in any poll, North Carolina State (7-3) and Northern Illinois (8-2) are the top two that could be the beneficiaries of some falling out of the Top 25.

Local teams Pitt, Penn State, and West Virginia are not expected to figure significantly into the polls. Only Penn State received any votes last week (ESPN/USA Today), and they only received a sole point. West Virginia may also grab a few points, but will not likely garner enough for Top 25 consideration.
