The Hurricanes moved up three spots after last weekend's 28-10 victory versus then No. 13 Virginia Tech, which is now No. 17.
The top five teams this week, as chosen by the 13-member selection committee, were identical to the top five teams a week ago, with Georgia (9-0) holding the No. 1 spot, followed by No. 2 Alabama (9-0), No. 3 Notre Dame (8-1) and No. 4 Clemson (8-1). MSU visits #13 Ohio State this Saturday. The Hurricanes jumped over Wisconsin after beating Virginia Tech handily Saturday. The Selection Committee doesn't seem to find the conference's lack of defense indefensible, as it put its two best teams as the first two out.
Other top-10 teams in the poll are No. 5 Oklahoma, No. 6 TCU, No. 7 Miami, No. 8 Wisconsin, No. 9 Washington and No. 10 Auburn. The Tigers close out the season with three home games, including this Saturday against Georgia and the annual Iron Bowl rivalry vs. Alabama. No. 2 Alabama will play Mississippi State (7-2), which held down No. 16 for a second consecutive week, and No. 8 Wisconsin will welcome Iowa, which debuted at No. 20.
But the road to Iowa State's first Big 12 title game appearance in school history still looks like a long shot. Northwestern has the final spot in the top 25. UCF sat at No. 18, its same ranking from last week, and four spots ahead of Memphis (8-1), whose lone loss came to UCF.
