Carnahan Chronicles College Football Rankings (Week 3)

Upsets! That’s what Week 3 of the college football season served up for fans this past Saturday. And they were the type of upsets that brought major changes to the Carnahan Chronicles College Football Rankings. Consider this a Top 10 dedicated to momentum each week based off level of upsets and voting by the Associated Press:

#1 (1) Florida State (2-0) – Did not play
#2 (2) Auburn (2-0) – Did not play
#3 (4) Texas A&M (3-0) – Won 38-10 vs Rice
#4 (3) Oregon (3-0) – Won 48-14 vs Wyoming
#5 (7) LSU (3-0) – Won 31-0 vs La.-Monroe
#6 (9) Oklahoma (3-0) – Won 34-10 vs Tennessee
#7 (10) Alabama (3-0) – Won 52-12 vs Southern Miss
#8 (–) South Carolina (2-1) – Won 38-35 vs No. 6 Georgia
#9 (–) East Carolina (2-1) – Won 28-21 at No. 17 Virginia Tech
#10 (–) Boston College (2-1) – Won 37-31 vs No. 9 USC

Dropped out – #5 Virginia Tech (lost 28-21 vs East Carolina); #6 USC (lost 37-31 at Boston College); #8 Georgia (lost 38-35 at No. 24 South Carolina)

NOTES: Nine undefeated teams ranked in the AP Top 25 have been ignored by these rankings this week… Virginia (2-1) won 23-21 vs No. 21 Louisville but were unable to crack the rankings. They’ll have a chance to move up this week against No. 21 BYU… Because FSU & Auburn played for the title last season, they remain atop these rankings… South Carolina’s win over No. 6 Georgia earns the Gamecocks a spot despite their loss to the Aggies… East Carolina lost to South Carolina 33-23 and Boston College lost to Pittsburgh 30-20 in Week 2 but moved into the final spots following upset wins… The biggest matchups this weekend involving teams in the AP Top 25 are No.1 Florida State vs. No. 22 Clemson and No. 5 Auburn at No. 20 Kansas State.
