Network Ranking - Week 5

by Patrick Rhamey

Florida hangs on to the top spot after crushing Ole Miss, but faces yet another test against #25 Missouri in Columbia.  USC shoots into the top 25 despite being on a bye week thanks to Arizona State's (who USC defeated last week) victory over UCLA.  Northwestern is looking strong with a defeat of Stanford (who beat USC, who beat UCLA, etc.).  But, Saturday they face #6 Michigan in The Big House.  Utah, likewise, has a test in their home game against a decent Cal team, while Ohio State should take care of business at home against Maryland, who Michigan shut out 28-0 this weekend.  Other than Ohio State's conference cupcake, great weekend of football ahead.
