Does this makes sense from 247?

"Three teams bound to drop out this week are UCF and Oklahoma State, who both dropped road games as favorites, along with previously unbeaten SMU." Then list us as #24?

The key here is the statement "previously unbeaten SMU."

Methinks someone turned the copy in when we were down three touchdowns and it went to press. :)

I just couldn't care less about rankings. If this team goes 14-0 and is ranked # 24 it will be great for discussion/complaining but we can win ugly the rest of the year as far as I am concerned...just as long as these guys keep finding ways to win.

#24 is fine. I'll even accept 25.

I think Baylor passes us. Maybe Memphis. But don’t see Cincinnati.

18. SMU (6-0, open)

17. Texas (4-2, lost to Oklahoma)

16. Arizona State (5-1, beat Washington State)

The word: How far will the Longhorns drop from No. 11 following a single-possession loss to Oklahoma? It depends if AP Poll voters still respect Texas as a Top 20 team (they should). Perhaps the most surprising aspect of Saturday's loss was Oklahoma's ability to keep Sam Ehlinger, a Heisman candidate, out of the end zone.

We knew how good they were," Texas coach Tom Herman said. "We knew that their defense had improved, and we certainly saw the things that they were doing offensively."

SMU will move up at least three spots after several teams ahead of the Mustangs lost in Week 7 to fall out of the Top 25.

Agree UT will probably be like #13. I think Baylor moves ahead of us at like #18 and we move #19. Boise state shouldn't move at all. Their conference schedule and OOC is cupcake worthy. One loss and they're out for good.

Boise lost their QB against Hawaii, but the backup (who played some of last year) did great. Huge game for them at BYU this week.
