There were a number of upsets and ranked teams falling which helped push the Pokes higher. No. 3 Oregon was served the upset by unranked Stanford. Seventh-ranked Notre Dame fell to eighth-ranked Cincinnati. (That pickup for the Big 12 is looking better and better.) No. 23 Kentucky handed No. 9 Florida an L and No. 11 Arkansas got blanked 37-zip by No. 2 Georgia.

Elsewhere in the league, Oklahoma dropped one spot from 4 to 5 after its 37-31 win over Kansas State. Baylor dropped out with the loss in Stillwater. Texas is back in at 23 after its win over TCU, setting up a ranked-on-ranked Red River rivalry this weekend.
