Week 2 Notes:

There were few surprises in the upper echelon of the Top 25 rankings this week, as the top six teams remained the same. #4 Oklahoma and #5 Boise State were idle, but retained their positions, while #7 Texas A&M - also idle - moved up, supplanting Ohio State, which survived a close call against a determined Toledo squad, winning 27-22, but dropped out of the Top 10, to #11.

On tap next for the Rockets is a visit from #5 Boise State, and with an extra week to prepare, it should be interesting to see how well the Broncos fare against Toledo, a solid Mid-American squad.

As for the Sooners, they face a rugged test at #6 Florida State. The Seminoles so far have crushed weak opponents in their first two games, beating Louisiana Monroe, 34-0, and last week topping Charleston Southern by a 62-10 tally. Saturday's clash between two of the powerhouse programs will be an epic struggle.

Texas A&M should have an easier time hosting Idaho, also a Saturday night game.

Arkansas, South Carolina and Oklahoma State also leap-frogged past the Buckeyes, taking the #8, 9 and 10 spots respectively on solid victories.

The Gamecocks struggled with an invigorated Georgia team, finally securing a 45-42 victory when Melvin Ingram recovered a Georgia fumble and dashed the five yards into the end zone. That put South Carolina up 45-35 and the Bulldogs added a late TD to cut the lead to three, but could not get the ball back.

Arkansas has had its way with their first two opponents, whipping Missouri State 51-7, before cranking New Mexico, 52-3 last week. The Razorbacks are home against Troy this week, but face Alabama on September 24.

Oklahoma State's convincing, 37-14, win over Arizona secured their place in the Top 10.

The top three teams in the Downtown Magazine rankings all were big winners, with Stanford romping over Duke, 44-14, as Andrew Luck threw four TD passes, #2 LSU cruised by Northwestern State, 49-3, but Alabama had the most impressive win of the weekend, smothering Penn State in Happy Valley by a 27-11 score.

Further down the list, Auburn reappears at #15 after their stunning 41-34 victory over Mississippi State. The Tigers had been written off by all the major polls, but denounced the skeptics with a gutsy win which ended with a goal line stand to prevent a tying touchdown. The Tigers have the longest winning streak in the nation, at 16 straight.

At #18, Oregon becomes the highest-ranked team with a loss, deserving of the spot after pounding Nevada, 69-20. The Ducks took a beating by LSU, losing, 40-27, in Week 1.

Also checking in with one win and one loss was TCU, rebounding after their 50-48 upset loss to Baylor in Week 1, to upend Air Force, 35-19.

South Florida, Maryland and Arizona State complete the bottom of the rankings. There are plenty of solid teams with unbeaten records, as it is still very early in the season. Some of the better squads not making the grade are Michigan, Iowa State, Georgia Tech, USC and Navy.
