Oklahoma stays in the Top 20 after losing in humiliating fashion vs. Texas. Both polls kept the Sooners at No. 18, which either speaks to how they value the Longhorns (higher than we think) or indicates that they thought Saturday was a fluke.
Georgia was given a similar benefit of the doubt after losing to Missouri. Injuries have ravaged the Bulldogs, but even with two losses, the quality of wins over South Carolina and LSU is too strong to justify dropping them further.
Elsewhere, a couple teams that continued to win reaped the benefit of teams around them losing. That list includes Texas Tech and Fresno State, along with Virginia Tech.
The Hokies have rebounded astonishingly well from their season-opening loss to No. 1 Alabama. The defense is among America's best, and even quarterback Logan Thomas has shown signs of life.
Watch out for them going forward.
