College football rankings, Week 6: Stanford will fall; does Northwestern enter?

Benny Sieu-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

The latest college football rankings on Sunday will see the Stanford Cardinal fall, but will there be any new entrants. A 5-0 Northwestern squad has a strong case.

The latest college football rankings don't come out for a few more hours, but we'll see another team exit the top 10 for another week. The No. 8 Stanford Cardinal went on the road to face the Washington Huskies and fell flat in a 17-13 loss on Thursday night.

The No. 20 Michigan St. Spartans lost to the No. 14 Ohio St. Buckeyes, 17-16, on Saturday afternoon. That loss came after the No. 25 Baylor Bears fell in a shootout to the No. 9 West Virginia Mountaineers, 70-63. Baylor is assuredly going to fall out while Michigan State will likely also be outside -- unless voters believe a one-point loss to a top-15 team is a "good" loss. West Virginia will certainly move up.

The No. 24 Boise St. Broncos survived a late rally by New Mexico to pull off a 32-29 victory. Staying at No. 24 might be the result this week for the Broncos. Other top 25 teams that had close calls include No. 5 Georgia (51-44 victory over Tennessee), No. 15 TCU (24-16 win against SMU), No. 19 Louisville (21-17 victory against Southern Miss) and No. 18 Oregon State (38-35 win over Arizona).

The Northwestern Wildcats improved to 5-0 with a 44-29 victory over the Indiana Hoosiers and should be the new team in the polls this week. They were the first team out in both the AP and Coaches Top 25 polls last week.
