While Bama keeps winning, Oregon is just destroying the opposition and proved on Saturday that they're a threat to the Tide with a 59-14 over Tennessee. The Ducks have scored 184 points in three games and have taken their fast paced offense to a new level. Oregon received the other first place vote and have a firm grasp at number two in the latest college football rankings.
Clemson didn't play this weekend and remained in third, while Ohio State and Stanford round out the top-5.
Arizona State entered the rankings for the first time after their big win over Wisconsin Saturday night. The Sun Devils are 2-0 and jumped to 23rd this week. Texas Tech is another newcomer at 25 as the Red Raiders also had a big this week over TCU and moved their record to 3-0.
Nebraska dropped out of the latest poll after a home loss to UCLA. The Cornhuskers led early in the game, but failed to score in the second half, possibly costing them a shot at a BCS Bowl in 2013.
