Thanks to a rather boring week of college football, the AP Poll doesn't look too different this week.

OTHERS RECEIVING VOTES: North Carolina 82, Duke 55, Mississippi St. 55, Virginia Tech 54, Penn St. 51, East Carolina 44, TCU 42, Pittsburgh 40, Florida 31, Marshall 28, Boston College 22, Washington 14, West Virginia 14, Cincinnati 10, Virginia 6, Arizona 3, Arkansas 3, N. Dakota St. 3, Louisville 2

The top five stayed the same. Georgia and USC both dropped rather far, following their losses to South Carolina and Boston College respectively. South Carolina, despite beating Georgia, is still ranked below them, because COLLEGE FOOTBAWL. Virginia Tech fell out of the poll after falling to ECU, and BYU, the lone Group of Five member ranked shot up four spots to No. 21 after beating Houston in a wacky Thursday night game.

Baylor and Missouri both moved up, making Buffalo and Toledo's respective loses look better.

Still no votes for the MAC, which is rather surprising considering the number of votes for both Marshall and Cincinnati.

The MAC does face off with some ranked teams this week. Bowling Green faces off with No. 19 Wisconsin after knocking off Indiana a week ago. Eastern Michigan has the unfortunate task of taking on No. 11 Michigan State in East Lansing Saturday as well. Both games are at noon.

How do we feel about these rankings?
