College Football Top 128, Week of Oct. 4

Five weeks into the season, we’re finally seeing the College Football Playoff situation start to clear up a bit. Alabama and Ohio State stayed on track at the top of the poll, while Clemson won its titanic battle with upstart Louisville. Meanwhile, another contender saw its playoff hopes dashed, as Florida State fell prey at home to North Carolina. The Seminoles will look to derail uber-rival Miami this week. The Hurricanes remained unbeaten by toppling Georgia Tech, and are a surprising early favorite to beat the Seminoles. Meanwhile, Western Michigan, which I have been tracking as a potential New Year’s bowl party-crasher all season, finally cracked the Coaches Poll, though the AP has yet to show the Broncos the love they deserve.
