There are a couple big changes to the College Football Top 25 this week.

After a few huge upsets, there has been some major movement in the polls this week. Kentucky entered their matchup with Vanderbilt ranked No. 14 in the AP Poll, then climbed two spots in the latest ranking.

If Kentucky beats Missouri next week, they should move in the top 10 when they play Georgia.

Ohio State and Oregon suffered huge upset losses this week. Washington State shot up all the polls after defeating Oregon. Mississippi State dropped out of the Top 25 with their loss to LSU, who moved up slightly after that win. NC State dropped as well after losing to Clemson.

Florida, Georgia, Texas A&M and Texas were all on bye weeks, and there shouldn’t be much movement with those teams.

CBS released their Top 25 last night. Even with the win over Vandy, Kentucky stayed at 14 in their rankings.

14. Kentucky (14): On a busy Saturday evening, I’m guessing most AP voters weren’t tuned in to Kentucky and Vanderbilt’s rock right. By winning 14-7, the Wildcats are almost guaranteed to hold steady in the polls.

The Massey and Sagarin rankings have Kentucky checking in at 11 and 24 respectively.
