Sunday Poll Roundup - Week Four

Still a top ten team, y’all.

NCAA Football: Arkansas at Auburn John Reed-USA TODAY Sports

After Auburn’s 34-3 spread-covering victory over Arkansas last night, there was a lot of chatter about the offense. It didn’t look good. It did look bad. The sky is falling, etc., etc.

Valid complaints, but in the end one phase of the team struggled and the other two phases picked up the slack. The defense was fantastic, rotating in young guys who all made plays, while the special teams unit showed out as well thanks to Noah Igbinoghene’s kickoff return touchdown and Ryan Davis’ long punt returns.

Whatever you think, Auburn still has a top ten team and the one loss on the year came to the #5 team in the country by a point on the final play of the game.

The top ten looks this way:

  1. Alabama
  2. Georgia
  3. Clemson
  4. Ohio State
  5. LSU
  6. Oklahoma
  7. Stanford
  8. Notre Dame
  9. Penn State
  10. Auburn

Other SEC teams making appearances in the poll are Kentucky at #17 and Mississippi State at #22. The Coaches’ Poll is pretty similar at the top with only a couple of minor changes.

  1. Alabama
  2. Clemson
  3. Georgia
  4. Ohio State
  5. Oklahoma
  6. LSU
  7. Stanford
  8. Notre Dame
  9. Penn State
  10. Auburn

In Week Five, there are a few games that’ll affect the rankings, highlighted by #4 Ohio State at #9 Penn State and #7 Stanford at #8 Notre Dame. If Auburn takes care of business against Southern Miss, then they’ll likely be able to move up a couple spots in the rankings. Ton of room for improvement for the Tigers, and still a ton of opportunity to move up in the polls. War Eagle!
