The Associated Press Top 25 poll has finally been released, with not a single team making a move in the top ten for Week 7. Oregon used their whooping of Cal to remain 9th in the polls, and even though the Oklahoma Sooners were a resounding number one over at the USA Today/ Coaches Poll, the AP sees the LSU Tigers as the top dogs in College Football this week, placing Oklahoma in third.
The Ducks scored 29 unanswered second-half points against the Golden Bears at Autzen Stadium, squashing any belief of a encore performance of Cal's win over Oregon in 2010. They'll take on another Pac-12 opponent next Saturday in Arizona State as the Ducks look to push toward a possible BCS berth.
As for the rest of the rankings, LSU dismantled Florida by 30 points this past Saturday, looking very much like a worthy candidate for the top spot in the country. Nevertheless, so did Alabama and Oklahoma, after Bama blanked Vanderbilt 34-0 and the Sooners dominated the Texas Longhorns in the Red River Rivalry by the score of 55-17. Wisconsin stayed in fourth during their bye week, while Oklahoma State, Stanford, and Clemson all had big wins to keep their spots in the top 10 as well. Arkansas rounds out the top 10.
Maybe the most interesting thing about this week's rankings is that you won't find a single Florida team in the top 25 as Florida, Florida State and Miami all are outside the rankings for the first time since 1982, a span of 473 weeks.
