Vuk’s Week 4 College Football Top 25 Rankings



With the losses from teams in the middle to bottom of the Top 25, they’ll be plenty of changes in this week’s rankings.

Teams in my Top 25 that took an L last week were Wake Forest, Florida, Miami, Texas, Arkansas and Oklahoma, while USC, Texas A&M, Kentucky, Oregon, Tennessee, Clemson, Baylor and Michigan came away with single digit wins.

Every Sunday during this college football season, I will be posting my own Top 25 rankings and we’ll see where they stack up against the other national outlets. My rankings will be based on what I see on the field combined with the competition teams have played.

I’m sure plenty of people will have opinions on me having Pitt at No. 15. I take into account who a team has played and team circumstances. No team in the country has had to deal with the injuries that Pitt has and very few in the Top 25 have had a more challenging schedule. Unlike many voters, I don’t give certain teams an edge because of what conference they’re in or what helmet the players are wearing. Pitt is one of the Top 20 teams in the country and no one can convince me otherwise.


1) Georgia-Rinse and repeat. Georgia is the best team in college football.
2) Alabama- The Tide opened SEC play by dominating Vanderbilt. Interesting game this Saturday against Arkansas.
3) Ohio State- The Buckeyes cruised to a 52-21 win over Wisconsin. Ohio State won’t be tested until October 29 when they take on Penn State at Beaver Stadium.
4) Michigan- Surprised that Maryland stayed with Michigan, but a win is a win.
5) Clemson- Best game of the weekend as Clemson goes on the road and beats undefeated Wake Forest. Biggest storyline was the play of Clemson quarterback DJ Uiagalelei: 26 of 41 for 371 yards and 5 TD’s.
6) Oklahoma State
7) USC
8) Utah
9) Tennessee
10) Baylor
11) Kentucky
12) Penn State
13) NC State
14) Texas A&M
15) PITT
16) Oklahoma
17) Washington
18) Arkansas
19) Oregon
20) Wake Forest
21) Ole Miss
22) Florida
23) Florida State
24) Kansas State
25) BYU

Vuk one thing I can’t figure out ..and this has nothing to do with Addison….is why an undefeated Tennessee team with 2 two top 25 wins is sitting behind a USC team that has beat no one and almost lost to mighty Oregon State???? It’s not just you….the whole world went on and crowned these clowns and they haven’t done anything yet. Tennessee deserves to be in the top 5 if you ask me.

I really hate to be “that guy”, but I took a world wide peek this morning and several sites have PITT falling off the top 25. ((wink wink CBS)), 247 Sports moved PITT back to 25, and Yahoo moved PITT to 22. There is NO WAY PITT makes it any higher than 23 (if they even stay in at all). If rankings matter (to you or your program) this is why you play teams with your best players and win by 50 when you can. Clearly PITT impresses no one and the moral victory against Tennessee (who is now moving… Read more »

can’t see them dropping out given results of other games .. at a minimum, Miami is out and possibly texas drops below us …. and, i don’t see 3 teams passing us.

We would have won by 50, even with back ups, IF we had a real OC.

yikes, #15 …. i like it, but to me, there is no way we will be ranked that high (nor should we be). maximum is #21. most of the teams you mentioned losing, will not drop that far. Pitt hasn’t been dominant and has been piling up injuries. can’t see them being in top 15 unless/until they win their next 3.
