The Week 6 QuackPoll Hates the Big Ten

Jerry Lai-USA TODAY Sports

For some reason.

Weird week for the QuackPoll, let's take a look:

Rank Team Points (out of 125) Change from Week 5
1 Oregon (3) 123 0
2 Alabama (2) 117 0
3 Clemson 116 -1
4 Stanford 107 +1
5 Florida State 106 +2
6 Ohio State 100 -2
7 Georgia 93 -1
8 LSU 84 +2
9 UCLA 79 -1
10 Louisville 77 +1
11 Baylor 70 +3
12 Miami 69 0
13 Texas A&M 67 0
14 Washington 66 -5
15 Oklahoma 64 -1
16 South Carolina 46 0
17 Texas Tech 41 +1
18 Fresno State 32 +2
19 Florida 30 +5
20 Michigan 27 +2
21 Northwestern 25 -4
22 Oklahoma State 23 +1
23 Northern Illinois 18 +2
24 Missouri 16 +2
25 Virginia Tech 10 +2

Also receiving votes: Auburn (6), Notre Dame (1), Michigan State (1), Arizona State (1)

Dropped out of the Top 25: Arizona State, Maryland

The biggest thing that sticks out is Ohio State. The Buckeyes beat a ranked (and very good)Northwestern team, on the road, and drop from #4 to #6. What gives? What gives is the rise of Stanford and Florida State. The Seminoles absolutely demolished a previously-unbeaten Maryland 63-0, the worst loss ever sustained by a ranked team in football history. And Stanford impressed our West coast bias by MacGyvering a win vs. Washington out of kick returns and concentrated scrappy.

The big movers include Baylor (who I think is criminally underranked), Florida (who looks to have actually found a quarterback to complement their elite defense), and hard-luck losers Washington and Northwestern. Georgia and UCLA also drop a spot each after struggling with Tennessee and Utah, respectively.

Personal biases this week: Dave hates Louisville (#16) and loves Georgia (#5), Jake loves Stanford (#3), and hates Baylor (#19), Noah hates Ohio State (#9), I love Baylor (#7) and hate Texas A&M (#19), and Dom loves Louisville (#6) and hates Texas Tech (unranked).

Big games this week: #1 Oregon @ #14 Washington, #7 Georgia vs. #24 Missouri, #8 LSU vs. #19 Florida
