College football rankings: Toledo, Northern Illinois both unranked

Toledo with 36 points, Northern Illinois without any.

Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports

The Toledo Rockets (2-0) have had an exciting season in the early goings with a win over a then-ranked Arkansas Razorbacks team and following that up with a double-overtime win over Iowa State last night. Had Iowa State actually been a halfway decent football team (finished 2-10 last year), maybe Toledo would have more than 36 points in the Associated Press voting.

Northern Illinois Huskies (2-1) contested well against the Ohio State Buckeyes in a 20-13 loss, but they remain near-unanimously the No. 1 team in the Coaches poll and still atop all three polls. The road loss to Ohio State was their only one of the season so far and their two wins came at home against the UNLV Rebels and Murray State Racers.
