On Saturday, a few top 20 programs lost: The No. 21 Nebraska Cornhuskers were downed by No. 12 Ohio St. Buckeyes; No. 15 TCU Horned Frogs fell to the Iowa St. Cyclones, 37-23; and No. 11 Texas Longhorns lost to No. 8 West Virginia Mountaineers, 48-45. Meanwhile, the No. 19 Louisville Cardinals did not play this week. All of those factors could help Rutgers climb higher in the rankings.

As for upsets this week, No. 3 Florida St. Seminoles, No. 4 LSU Tigers and No. 5 Georgia Bulldogs all lost. This should help No. 6 South Carolina Gamecocks, who earned a decisive 35-7 victory over Georgia, while No. 7 Kansas St. Wildcats, No. 9 Notre Dame Fighting Irish and No. 10 Florida Gators will likely all move up.
