Week 8 brought a wave of upsets and change throughout much of Charles Davis' latest top 25 rankings. See who rose and fell this week and hit Charles on Twitter with your thoughts.


UCF Knights


Texas A&M Aggies



7-0 - 1/10
The Crimson Tide may not be as flashy as Oregon or Baylor, but they can light up the scoreboard, too. Can Tennessee challenge them on Saturday?

7-0 - 2/15
Washington State was game last week, but keeping up with the Ducks is difficult. Now they have a big showdown with Pac-12 South frontrunner UCLA on Saturday.

WOW! Jameis Winston is not fazed by anything, and FSU’s win at Clemson was beyond impressive. Good luck this week, NC State.

6-0 6 3/28
The Bears score, score, score, but they play defense, too. They’re off to their best start since 1980 and are setting the pace in the Big 12.

7-0 2 2/11
The Buckeyes had a few anxious moments before subduing Iowa. Has anyone noticed that QB Braxton Miller is really playing well? Penn State visits this Saturday.

6-1 7 2/16
The Cardinal really responded to the upset loss at Utah by getting back to "Stanford Football," and UCLA paid the price. They have a huge game at Oregon State on Saturday.

7-0 7 4/14
The Tigers followed their win at Georgia with another over Florida at home, giving them their first back-to-back wins over ranked foes since 1973. Another SEC East game at home this week against South Carolina.

6-0 4 7/30
I thought North Carolina had the win secured last Thursday night against "The U," but Miami found a way to win. Don't concede the ACC to Florida State just yet.

5-1 3 6/22
A tough afternoon at Stanford last week for the Bruins (the third meeting between those teams in the last two seasons), but they can "get right" with an upset at No. 2 Oregon this weekend.

7-0 5 10/31
The Red Raiders appeared to be on the ropes at West Virginia last week, but head coach Kliff Kingsbury's team does not panic. Statement opportunity at No. 11 Oklahoma on Saturday.

6-1 5 4/20
Had to scrap a bit to win at Kansas, but expect No. 10 Texas Tech to get the Sooners’ full attention. The DB's had better get their rest this week.

6-1 16 2/28
If Florida State had win No. 1 over the weekend, the Tigers going to Texas A&M and closing out the Aggies is definitely win No. 1a.

6-1 9 4/15
Is a trip to Maryland the cure for the "post-Florida State blues?" Or will the FSU loss linger and become a second one? Stay tuned.

6-0 4 14/26
If you have not seen the Bulldogs play, I suggest you give them a look. QB Derek Carr to WR Davante Adams is well worth your time.

5-1 18 5/33
In the last few weeks, UCF has won at Penn State and at Louisville. Yes, they are good. Yes, QB Blake Bortles is good. Yes, they can dream about a BCS berth and believe it.

6-1 11 5/21
Their season is not over in terms of winning the AAC and competing for a second straight BCS berth. But the Cardinals’ national title dreams? No longer.

6-1 - 17/33
The Hokies’ defense is back, ranked in the top 12 nationally in most categories. They have not lost since the opener to Alabama in Atlanta.

5-1 1 18/34
The Cornhuskers had last week off, and now they must prove they belong in this poll. They are at feisty Minnesota this weekend.

5-2 12 6/24
The Aggies had the ball in QB Johnny Manziel's hands with a chance to win against Auburn but couldn't pull it off. Better not hang their heads against Vandy this weekend.

6-2 12 7/23
Much of the country doesn't know it, but LSU and Ole Miss is a mammoth rivalry, and the upset occurred. Tough night for QB Zach Mettenberger.
Home | Stats | Schedule | Tiger Sports Digest

7-0 1 16/27
If there is a tougher QB than the Huskies’ Jordan Lynch, I would love to see him play. Lynch is a lock for 3,000 yards passing and 1,000 yards rushing again.

0-0 - 22/35
The duo of QB Sean Mannion and WR Brandin Cooks is as good as there is in the country. They eagerly await Stanford's arrival on Saturday.

6-1 - 9/32
It's not pretty, but it's fun to watch. QB Devin Gardner, WR Jeremy Gallon and RB Fitz Touissant put on a SHOW against Indiana.

5-2 2 8/29
Gritty, grinding win at home over USC on Saturday night. Don't look now but ND's schedule sets up favorably for it to make a BCS bowl push.

5-2 4 11/29
The Sun Devils pounded a top 20-ranked Washington on Saturday evening. The Sun Devils are truly challengers in the Pac-12 South.
