COLLEGE FOOTBALL: SEP 07 Texas A&M at Clemson Photo by John Byrum/Icon Sportswire via Getty Images

We’re back at it again! Texas Tech is still rolling after the home and home thumping of less-than-not-notable teams, but this weekend will provide a much better picture. The FanPulse Polls have been collected and tallied after a semi-predictable weekend and here’s what the data tells us:

Again Clemson gives no indication that they need to be anywhere except No. 1. Their dominating defense in the Texas A&M match up illustrated an ability to control key aspects of the game. Expect Clemson to hang around for a while.

Biggest winners:

  • Florida, somehow jumping from No. 11 to No. 7 after a 45-0 blanking of *checks notes* TN-Martin
  • Maryland, Mississippi State, and USC for entering the arena after being previously unranked

Biggest losers:

  • Michigan, falling from No. 7 to No. 10 after escaping the Army game, 24-21
  • Texas, and Texas A&M falling two spots each for having opportunities at high-quality opponents but failing to capitalize
  • Washington, falling from No 13. to No. 17 after a late-night loss to Cal, 20-1
  • Syracuse, being Thanos snapped from No. 21 to beyond the ranking system after being demolished by Maryland, 63-20.

  1. Clemson
  2. Alabama
  3. Georgia
  4. Oklahoma

  • This week (outside of a few radicals) was predictable, and the Texas Tech votes didn’t differ too far from the field of sixty-six voters.
