The Week 13 QuackPoll is Spiteful and Grumpy

And Oregon drops like a sack of potatoes.

Richard Rowe-USA TODAY Sports

Ranking Oregon after a blowout loss is something we haven't had to do at ATQ in a long time. Being an Oregon blog, we've had a slight bias towards the Ducks, ranking them consistently above teams like Alabama and Florida all year. But after that Arizona nonsense, we're biased in a different direction. Have a look-see:

Rank Team Points (75 max) Change
1 Florida State (2) 74 0
2 Alabama (1) 72 0
3 Ohio State 70 +1
T-4 Missouri 62 +4
T-4 Oklahoma State 62 +5
6 Auburn 61 +1
7 Michigan State 58 +3
8 Clemson 57 -2
9 Baylor 51 -6
10 Wisconsin 47 +1
11 Stanford 44 +5
12 Arizona State 40 +1
13 South Carolina 38 0
14 Oregon 34 -9
15 Northern Illinois 32 -3
16 Oklahoma 27 +5
17 Fresno State 26 +1
18 USC 25 +1
19 LSU 24 +5
20 Duke 20 +3
21 UCF 16 -2
T-22 Louisville 12 0
T-22 UCLA 12 -7
24 Minnesota 4 0
25 Texas 3 n/a

  • Big movers this week are Oklahoma State and Missouri, after their respective wins over Baylor and Ole Miss.
  • Clemson drops two spots despite winning 52-6 over The Citadel. Moral of this story? Don't play The Citadel in November.
  • Minnesota remains at #24 despite losing 20-7 to Wisconsin. In Noah and my defense, this is all Dave's fault. Supreme Leader has the Gophers at #22.
  • Duke continues their rise to the top of the polls, moving up to #20. If they beat UNC this week, they clinch the ACC Coastal, earning the right to lose to Florida State by 40. Prestige.
  • We dropped Clemson to #11 after they were throttled by Florida State at home, so moving Baylor to #9 after laying an egg in Stillwater makes sense.
Biases this week:

Dave Auburn (#4) Oklahoma (#20)
Noah Alabama (#1) Fresno State (#23)
Tako Duke (#17) Oregon (#19)

Yeah, I ranked Duke ahead of Oregon. What's it to you?
