This Saturday, we had fewer postponements of ranked teams. More ranked teams were back in action with a few ranked-vs-rank matchups. The top 8 should stay the same with no losses in that group.

The Big Ten looks to be responsible for the biggest AP Top 25 shakeup. Northwestern, currently ranked No. 19, knocked off No. 10 Wisconsin to improve to 5-0. With many teams in the teens already at two losses and one-loss Miami off this week due to postponement, the undefeated Wildcats are likely to climb to No. 10.

Indiana lost to No. 3 Ohio State, but by only one score. With just one-loss and a strong showing Saturday, the Hoosiers seem likely to stay at No. 9. It helps that No. 10 Wisconsin also lost and, again, many teams in the teens are either off, have two losses, or didn’t impress.

As far as any team dropping out of the Top 25, there is one situation to watch. Hugh Freeze’s Liberty Flames fell to NC State 15-14. Liberty was No. 21. From the “others receiving votes” pool, Washington was already on the radar of a few voters and defeated Arizona 44-27, so the Huskies taking Liberty’s spot is a potential situation to watch. For now, We’ll give Freeze’s Flames the benefit of the doubt with voters, an 8-1 mark with a one-point loss is likely still Top 25-worthy to most.
