The latest college football rankings won't see any changes until we look at the No. 6 team in the polls that will come out later on Sunday. The Oklahoma Sooners entered the weekend in that spot, but a 24-19 loss to the No. 15 Kansas St. Wildcats will send them from the top 10.

Alabama, LSU, Oregon, Florida State and Georgia should remain as the top five teams. However, LSU squeaked by Auburn, 12-10, and Florida State needed to score 35 points in the second half to defeat No. 10 Clemson, 49-37. Will some of the voters drop them a bit?

Along with Kansas State, expect the No. 11 Notre Dame Fighting Irish to move into the top 10 following a 13-6 victory over the No. 18 Michigan Wolverines.

The Oregon St. Beavers defeated a ranked opponent for a second straight week with a 27-20 victory over the No. 19 UCLA Bruins. UCLA will likely find its way out of the top 25 while Oregon State should move in. The Beavers were the first team out last week after defeating the Wisconsin Badgers.

The Boise St. Broncos should hang on to one of the last spots in the top 25. Entering last week at No. 24, the Broncos picked up a 7-6 win over the BYU Cougars on Thursday. The No. 22 Arizona Wildcats are likely to fall out after a loss to the No. 3 Ducks, which could help elevate the Broncos just a bit.
