Super 16 Poll: Week 8
Badgers drop, Top 5 Stagnant
Alabama remained No. 1 with the next four teams holding the same order as last week. But Wisconsin’s upset loss at Illinois dropped the Badgers six spots from No. 6 to No. 12. Oklahoma and Penn State kept winning, completing the six unbeaten teams at the top of the poll.
The Nittany Lions’ win came against Michigan, kicking the Wolverines out of the poll, and Boise State fell from the rankings after losing to BYU. They were replaced by unbeatens Baylor and Minnesota who joined the poll for the first time this season.
Alabama (24), LSU (11), Ohio State (7), Clemson (3) and Oklahoma (1) received the first-place votes from the 46 selectors.
The SEC led all leagues with five teams, the Big Ten had four, Big 12 three, and the Pac-12 two. The ACC and Independents each had one.
No. 10 Auburn at No. 2 LSU;
No. 12 Wisconsin at No.3 Ohio State;
Boston College at No. 4 Clemson;

No. 9 Georgia is idle;
