Dropped Out: Clemson (#14), Virginia Tech (#18), Tennessee (#21).
Don't ask me to explain the movement. I went tabula rasa with these rankings and we're going with a sample size of exactly one game. The Mountain West outranks the ACC and will draw even with the Big Ten is Wisconsin loses at Fresno State. Wake makes its appearance, which I should have done last week, but I didn't have the room. I struggled with Alabama's placement because they were very impressive, but if they beat a team that I proclaimed to be overrated, it can't be that much of an accomplishment. The Tide replace Tennessee, thus ensuring that only 40% of the ten all-time winningest programs are represented in this poll. That seems like a big number to me.
