25 (tie). Stanford (1-2)

Lost to San Diego State, 20-17

Stanford is receiving a nice boost thanks to preseason rankings and a flawless start against Rice. They are on a two game skid, and could very well see their way out of the top 25 unless they turn it around.

25 (tie). Colorado (3-0)

Defeated Northern Colorado 41-21

Colorado has started the season 3-0 again, but this may change next week when they play Washington. This could be an early season stepback, or a jumping off point for a wonderful season for the Buffaloes. It won’t be a must win, as they can bounce back, but they will look to make waves in the Pac-12.

23. Vanderbilt (3-0)

Defeated Kansas State 14-7

Vanderbilt has quietly become a solid team out of the SEC East. Far from the laughingstock they used to be a short few years ago, they defeated Kansas State in a close game this last week. They will play Alabama this week, and can stun the SEC with a victory in Nashville.

22. Kansas State (2-1)

Lost to Vanderbilt, 14-7

Bill Snyder has, once again, put together a good Wildcat team. As long as Snyder is there, he is going to produce solid teams. They have rarely been in the top-5 conversation, but Snyder has really made this program, which was dismal before him, respectable and consistent.

21. LSU (2-1)

Lost to Mississippi State 37-7

The same problems that plagued LSU, causing them to fire their coach, reared their ugly head against Mississippi State. Solid defense, with an inept offense. Mississippi State stopped the run and forced Danny Etling to win with his arm. If LSU can get a passer who is capable of doing just that, be careful.

20. Louisville (2-1)

Lost to Clemson 47-21

Lamar Jackson is going to win Louisville games by himself, but even he couldn’t pull out the win against Clemson. They have a few chances coming up, against Kent State and Murray State to fix issues they saw against Clemson. Their next chance to impress and really rise in the rankings is against Florida State, on Oct. 21.
