Week 5 of the college football regular season featured a handful of major upsets, including Oregon State’s 27-21 shocker of then No. 1 Southern California last Thursday.

Even though the Trojans came out flat, oddsmakers at Las Vegas Sports Consultants, the company that provides the majority of lines to casinos in Nevada, believe head coach Pete Carroll and company are still an elite team.

USC fell one spot in this week’s Top 30 after getting jumped by Oklahoma. The Sooners were listed as 18-point home favorites against TCU and the school didn’t disappoint in a 35-10 wire-to-wire victory.

The Big 12 has six schools listed in the Top 30, which is second to seven teams represented from the SEC but the group has three schools, Oklahoma, Missouri (3) and Texas (4), listed in the top four. Texas Tech (9), Kansas (13) and Oklahoma State (16) are the remaining three that round out the Big 12 in the LVSC rankings.

Fans and gamblers of this conference should make no plans for Saturday, Oct. 11 because that’s when things will heat up. Texas and Oklahoma square off in the Red River Shootout from Dallas, while Oklahoma State heads to Missouri. Also, Texas Tech will garner another road test against Nebraska, who is listed in The Next Ten of the current rankings.

Competing with the Big 12 for bragging rights as the best conference is the SEC, but the powerhouse group got a nice shakeup this past Saturday. Mississippi nipped Florida 31-30 and Alabama completely embarrassed Georgia 41-31. The Bulldogs trailed the Crimson Tide 31-0 at the half and only got as close as 14 points.

Nick Saban and ‘Bama jumped from No. 17 to No. 7, which was the biggest move of the week. Georgia fell from fifth to eighth and Florida only dropped two spots to No. 5.

A couple other teams crept into the Top 30 this week, including No. 24 Tulsa. The Golden Hurricane appear to be the team to beat in Conference USA and are averaging 54.8 points per game, ranked first nationally. Don’t be surprised to see Tulsa standing at 8-0 before its final four-game stretch, which features road trips to Arkansas, Houston and Marshall.

Below is a complete listing of this week’s Top 30 along with notes from LVSC’s Chief Operating Officer Kenny White.
