Walker Sports College Football Poll: There's Plenty of Upsets

Dumont WalkerSenior Analyst ISeptember 28, 2009

There were plenty of upsets this weekend across the college football landscape. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to know there is plenty of movement in this week's edition of the Walker Sports College Football Poll, so let's not waste any more time and go right to the poll.

1. Florida Gators

Tim Tebow had the flu, but the Kentucky Wildcats were no match. A great first half and an average second half equals out to be another Florida win.

2. Texas Longhorns

UTEP never stood a chance. Colt McCoy and the Longhorns are on a mission that does not end until January.

3. Boise State Broncos

Yes you read this correctly, Boise State is in the top five in the country. The Broncos are legit and they will be in a BCS game. Just watch.

4. Alabama Crimson Tide

Hanging around, and they now have the blueprint to knock off Florida in the SEC Championship game should they get there.

5. LSU Tigers

See Bama.

6. Ohio State Buckeyes

Yet again the Buckeyes seem to be emerging as the cream of the crop in the Big 10. Expect another lost in a BCS game to the Big 12.

7. Virginia Tech Hokies

Jumping up a few spots after a very impressive win against the Miami Hurricanes.

8. Oklahoma Sooners

Next week's game against Miami could very well tell the story for the Sooners 2009 season.

9. TCU Horned Frogs

Great win in a hostile environment. The Horned Frogs proved they may be best team in the Mountain West and ready to contend on the national scene.

10. USC Trojans

Matt Barkley is back and the Trojans got themselves back on track just in time.

11. Oklahoma State Cowboys

Still need to find a way to get some defense or else this season will be a total loss.

12. Cincinnati Bearcats

At least someone is representing the Big East. Good luck in that rematch with Va. Tech.

13. Penn State Nittany Lions

Yet again Iowa comes in to ruin the perfect season. Man that's trippy.

14. Georgia Bulldogs

The Bulldogs are better than I thought but still don't see much of a future in the SEC East.

15. Houston Cougars

This team is really taking off. Knocking off Texas Tech last week was impressive.

16. Iowa Hawkeyes

Two years in a row the Hawkeyes have had what it takes to beat Penn State. This time they did it in front of 90,000.

17. Cal Bears

Talk about choking. Nothing about Saturday's game was good.

18. Kansas Jayhawks

Still hanging around in the Big 12 North, this will be an interesting journey for the Jayhawks.

19. BYU Cougars

It will be great to see the game when the Cougars and the Horned Frogs match up.

20. Mississippi Rebels

Ole Miss may be the one team that the Cal Bears can look at and say, "I'm glad I'm not them."

21. Michigan Wolverines

Rich Rod is putting the pieces together. Give him a few seasons and something big will happen.

22. Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets

Great win over the Tar Heels has Paul Johnson's crew back into the mix in the ACC.

23. Nebraska Cornhuskers

Rebounding after a heart breaker on the road last week. All the Cornhuskers have to do is focus and worry about beating out Kansas.

24. Oregon Ducks

Chip Kelly has his team back on track. It took a while to install his ideals, but now his players are responding.

25. Miami Hurricanes

This is still a good team. They just played a better and more experienced team on Saturday.
