ITS's Top 25: Week 5

 #1 Alabama (-) - Securing another win against a very tough opponent in Arkansas, the Crimson Tide continue to prove why they were ranked the top spot at the beginning of the season.

#2 Ohio State (-) - While the 73 points were very good, giving up 20 to a horrible offense isn't great. We shouldn't be too worried about this, but the Buckeyes move into Big Ten play, and anything can happen.

#3 Oregon (-) - The Ducks also had a tough game against Arizona State, the best defense they have faced, andstill scored over 40. Although they looked shaky in that ASU game, and Threet intercepted them to Victory 4, so we need to see a little more down the road from Oregon.

#4 Nebraska (-) - The Huskers got off to a very slow start, but managed to win the game and hold down this spot, thanks to the two and only touchdowns in the 2nd quarter. Nebraska is an easy contender, but they have a lot of tough games coming up.

#5 Boise State (6) - Moving up a spot after a decent performance against Oregon State, the Broncos had to overcome their own mistakes, at home, to come out on top. OSU put up a good fight, but the defense really stepped up when they needed to.

#6 Wisconsin (9) - Really jumping up are the Badgers, who had a field day along with Ohio State, as they simply overpowered Austin Peay 70-3. The defense was dominant, but the true freshman White was running all day long for the offense.

#7 Oklahoma (8) - The Sooners had a very close game against the Bearcats of Cincinnati, and barely held on for the the win. Still, a win is a win, and they did it their way.

#8 TCU (7) - A quiet win over SMU was good, but the first quarter was plenty enough to expose some of that Horned Frog defense, and could cause trouble in the future against better opponents. 

#9 Stanford (15) - Making an appearance in the Top 10 for the first time, the Cardinals took care of business in South Bend without another glance. This team is scary good, and the match up with Oregon next will tell it all for both teams.

#10 Florida (11) - The Gators are starting to gain some more momentum as they move to 4-0, and the offense becomes better with every game. An undefeated Kentucky came in and got smacked in the mouth, with style.

For 11-25, go here.
