LSU remains atop Week 11 GC Top 25

By: PETE BETZ

Two of the highly-ranked unbeatens went down in Week 11. Stanford got blown out by a surging Oregon team, and Boise State lost when it missed a field goal with 0:03 left on the clock. LSU remains atop the leaderboard, followed closely by Oklahoma, though the Tigers are still the unanimous choice for No. 1.

We’ve gathered a handful of our esteemed Gator Country members and asked them to pick their own Top 25, so we can put together our very own Top 25 poll!  This week, we had 13 participants who took the time to put together a ballot for us.

Alabama moves up to No. 3 after the loss by the Cardinal, and Oregon proves the adage that it is better to lose early in the season than late, moving up to No. 4.  Oklahoma proves it as well, moving into No. 5. 

Arkansas and Clemson continue to creep up the Top 10 rankings, with Houston and Virginia Tech hovering at No. 9 and No. 10.  Stanford dropped only to No. 8, a dangerous team despite its big loss to the Ducks.

The SEC still has three teams in the Top 10, but only five in the GC Top 25.  South Carolina moved up to No. 12 and Georgia dropped slightly to No. 15.  Auburn dropped out of the rankings after being humbled by the Georgia Bulldogs.

Here is the complete Gator Country Top 25 for Week 11:
