At least on the upset front, it was relatively quiet in Week 5. That wasn’t for lack of effort on the part of a handful of top-ten teams, though.
No. 2 Oregon, No. 3 LSU, No. 4 Florida State, No. 5 Georgia and No. 6 South Carolina were all either severely tested or won by scores that belied the level of competition and I’m looking right at you LSU.
Hell, even No. 1 Alabama was tested early against Ole Miss, falling behind on the scoreboard for the first time since early November last year before for easing away for a comfortable but far-from-a-blowout win.
Aside from those scares, though, you have to go all the way back to Thursday — No. 8 Stanford — to find a Top 25 team that lost to an unranked program in Week 5.
So, with that out of the way and in short and sweet fashion, who ya got as the No. 1 team in the country after this weekend? Vote below, and whine away in the comments section.
