Week 5 of the college football season is here already.  There have been some risers (Clemson), and some fallers (Auburn, Ohio State, Florida State) so far this season and we are sure to be in store for more drama during this year's version of the "Push to the BCS".

Florida State had risen all the way to No. 5 in the country before the season started, and with their loss to Oklahoma and Clemson, the Seminoles may be yet another elite preseason team to fall out of the Top 25 all together.

Auburn, the defending national champion was a victim of the Clemson Tigers, as they saw their nation-leading 17-game home winning streak snapped by the visitors in stunning fashion as they fell all the way out of the Top 25. 

Ohio State had been a perennial contender in both the Big Ten and in the national picture.They had been to two BCS national championship games, but unfortunately lost them both. 

This season was tarnished by the "Tattoos for Memorabilia" scandal that saw Jim Tressel leaving his longtime post as head coach, and star QB Terrelle Pryor leave for the NFL. 

The Miami Hurricanes ended Ohio State's 7-year run in the Top 25 after the Buckeyes went to South Beach and were run off the field at Sun Life Stadium by the Hurricanes by a score of 24-6.
