After a week of major upsets, the latest AP Poll was shaken up reflecting the chaos that affected 5 of the Top 10. Florida State has by far the easiest path to the College Football Playoffs. The Playoff contenders who lost this past week cannot afford another slip up if they hope to be in the conversation at the end of the season.
With Conference play underway, don’t be surprised to see teams not previously in the conversation end up in the mix. Take for example the team that upset Oklahoma–a team many thought to be the most complete team in the country. Who actually had TCU in their Playoff Prediction? They go from 25 to Top 10 at Number 9 after their impressive performance.
Arizona was also a big mover going from outside the Top 25 to Number 10. The Wildcats are certainly a team to watch in Conference play.
This is so exciting and I am loving every moment of it.
Below is the 10/05/14 Week 6 AP poll.

North Dakota State keeps getting some love and some votes and who in their right mind would even complain. Those fellas can play and could easily compete at the FCS Level.
