Oklahoma struggled to get its No. 11 FBS ranked offense out of first gear and only tallied 260 total yards. The Sooners’ defense wasn’t able to provide help, either, as the Bears’ offense ran straight through it to the tune of 296 yards on 47 carries.
The AP’s Ralph D. Russo reports the switch from Cincinnati to Alabama at the No. 2 spot was more about the Bearcats — who let the USF Bulls score 28 points in the 45-28 victory — than the Crimson Tide. For the fourth straight week, the Bearcats played a team with a losing record and found themselves in a competitive game in the second half.
Behind No. 3 Cincinnati is, No. 4 Oregon (9-1), No. 5 Ohio State (9-1), No. 6 Notre Dame (9-1), No. 7 Michigan State (9-1), No. 8 Michigan (9-1) and No. 9 Oklahoma State (9-1) — all of which moved up one spot after Oklahoma fell eight spots after the loss to Baylor.
Ole Miss (8-2) landed the No. 10 spot after the Rebels intercepted two passes from Texas A&M (7-3) quarterback Zach Calzada in the fourth quarter to knock off the Aggies 29-19 on Saturday night. The previously No. 11 ranked Aggies fell to No. 16 with the loss.
