College Football Rankings 2011: Week 7 AP Poll Remains The Same At Top

The Week 7 AP Poll has been released and the top of the poll has no changes. LSU retained the number one position with their easy win over Florida. The Stanford Cardinal hung steady at number seven with their 48-7 win over Colorado. The Cardinal gained some votes but saw their deficit behind number six increase from six points to twelve points.

Given that we're only approaching the halfway point of the college football season there is still plenty of room for movement. The biggest opportunity for Stanford to move up will be if Oklahoma State struggles on the road against Texas. The Longhorns are struggling themselves after getting blown out by Oklahoma in the Red River Rivalry game, but will still be a tough matchup for the Cowboys.

For Stanford, the schedule gets a little more difficult in the coming weeks, which should benefit them if they can make it through unscathed. They travel to Washington State this coming week, then host a solid Washington team and then travel down to face USC. Their biggest game remains home against Oregon on November 12. If the Ducks can get past the LaMichael James injury, this could be a monstrous game for Pac-12 purposes and BCS purposes.
