nother one gone, another one bites the dust. In Week 11, top-ranked Ohio State was a 15-point home favorite against Illinois, but the Buckeyes lost a 28-21 decision thanks to four touchdown passes by Illini sophomore quarterback Juice Williams.
Therefore, LVSC’s Top 30 has a new No. 1 this week. On second thought, LSU is no stranger to the top slot, it just hasn’t been there since losing a triple-overtime thriller at Kentucky back on Oct. 13.
The Tigers are followed by Oklahoma, which is off a blowout win over Baylor. Ohio St. fell to No. 3.
There were no changes from fourth through eighth. That list goes like this: Oregon, West Virginia, Missouri, Southern Cal and Florida. Kansas, which along with Hawaii is the last of the undefeated teams still standing, moved up from No. 11 to No. 9 after winning and covering at Oklahoma State.
Clemson is No. 10, climbing from No. 14 after dealing Wake Forest woodshed treatment. Texas and Arizona St. are tied at 11th, while Georgia, Michigan and Virginia Tech round out the top 15.
Even though Hawaii kept its record unblemished with a win over Fresno St., the Warriors fell from No. 19 to No. 21. Auburn also took a dive following its loss at Georgia, dropping from 16th to 23rd.
USF is back in the top 30 at No. 24. Four other schools have been added from 27-30 in this order: Illinois, Kentucky, Utah and Arizona.
