top 10 week 8

There was plenty of movement in the top 10 after a wacky weekend in College Football.

A big change in the top 4 as #3 Utah jumps over #4 TCU who had a closer than expected game against Iowa State.

Stanford moves into the top 10 after dismantling UCLA. #12 Iowa moved up five spots after beating Northwestern who fell out of the top 25 after losses to Michigan and Iowa on consecutive weekends.

#22 Temple is in the top 25 for the first time in 36 years, the 6-0 Owls are a long way from the top, but are making noise in the rankings with fellow American Conference team, Memphis.

#18 Memphis was the biggest winner of the weekend after stunning Ole Miss. The Memphis Tigers move from outside of the top 25 into the top 20.

It was a rough week for the SEC, #24 Ole Miss was the big looser dropping 11 spots. #15 Texas A&M also dropped six spots and #13 Florida fell four spots after losing to LSU.
