The Frogs entered the weekend ranked No. 4 in the AP Poll and No. 3 in the coaches poll, but a 50-7 win over Texas on Saturday was enough to make the Frogs once again rank as the second best team in the country.
Ohio State retained the No. 1 spot in both polls after narrowly escaping Indiana on Saturday by a score of 34-27 in Bloomington, Indiana.
The weekend featured major shakeups in the rankings, with four teams in the AP top 10 experiencing defeat. The biggest shocker was No. 24 Florida taking down No. 3 Ole Miss Saturday night in Gainesville, Florida, by a score of 38-10. The win for the Gators propelled them all the way to No. 11 in the AP Poll while the Rebels dropped 11 spots to No. 14.
Within the Big 12, Oklahoma’s victory over West Virginia sent the Sooners from No. 15 to No. 10 in the AP Poll, while the Mountaineers fell from No. 23 to unranked. Baylor’s blowout win over unranked Texas Tech boosted the Bears from No. 5 to No. 3.
Oklahoma State fell a spot from No. 2o to No. 21 after a narrow victory over unranked Kansas State.
In the AP Poll, Florida made the biggest jump, moving 11 spots, while Ole Miss and Georgia tied for the biggest drop, falling 11 spots each.
In the Coaches Poll, Florida also made the biggest jump moving 11 spots from No. 23 to No. 12, while Georgia made the biggest drop, falling 10 spots from No. 6 to No. 16. Ole Miss only fell by 8 spots in the Coaches Poll, dropping from No. 5 to No. 13.
