I hope you have your pitchforks because Oklahoma and Ole Miss, despite losing their second game of the season, are still ranked in the AP Top 25. Ole Miss once again jumped out to a commanding lead only to watch it dwindle away. Oklahoma couldn't even muster the ability to look like a Power 5 team against Ohio State, at home in Norman.

Meanwhile, Baylor has risen to become the highest ranked Big 12 team. Texas, who can't stop a team with any semblance of an offensive scheme, is still ranked. West Virginia held Missouri to 3 points with their first team defense and 11 points total. That same offense put up 27 points on #11 Georgia. Maryland, who needed double overtime to put away Central Florida, has 3 votes. Virginia Tech who couldn't stay on the same field as Tennessee but has the impressive win over 1-2 Boston College has a vote.
