They dropped from the fifth spot in last weeks poll to sixth this week, along with a few other teams shifting within the top 10. 

LSU leapfrogged Oklahoma for the number one spot in the polls this week, though Alabama and Boise State remained in their spots at third and fourth respectively. Oklahoma State slides into Stanford's spot last week, Wisconsin slid down a spot to seventh, Nebraska moved up to eighth in the polls, Oregon cracks the top ten at ninth, while South Carolina makes it to the tenth spot this week.

Texas A&M will take on 14th ranked Auburn, while Stanford takes on Pac-12 rival UCLA.
