Entering the home stretch:
The Trojans and the Longhorns remain Nos. 1 and 2, and Penn State, LSU, Virginia Tech, and Ohio State all move up one spot due to Miami falling from No. 3 to No. 9 after losing to Georgia Tech. Oregon jumped from No. 10 to No. 7 after clobbering Oregon State, and the Fighting Irish improved by one position. Auburn rounds out the top ten.
The Tennessee Volunteers round out the top 117, and some players are behaving badly.
Games remaining that either will or could impact the Race:
- Texas at Texas A&M, November 25, 2005 (12:00, ABC)
- UCLA (12) at USC (1), December 3, 2005 (4:30, ABC)
