Week 7 in college football finally saw the bevy of ranked teams go down as we're used to seeing in the middle of the season, and the AP Poll reflected the chaos.

Oklahoma, Georgia and Stanford’s losses caused them to plummet to 18, 15 and 13, respectively, and Missouri's win over the Bulldogs moved the Tigers up 11 spots to No. 14, although it might be short-lived with starting quarterback James Franklin out six weeks with a separated shoulder. UCLA (9) and Miami (10) entered the top ten this week, and LSU and Texas A&M both moved up after conference victories.

The complete AP Poll (with first-place votes in parentheses) is below:

1. Alabama (55)

2. Oregon (5)

3. Clemson

4. Ohio State

5. Florida State

6. LSU

7. Texas A&M

8. Louisville

9. UCLA

10. Miami

11. South Carolina

12. Baylor

13. Stanford

14. Missouri

15. Georgia

16. Texas Tech

17. Fresno State

18. Oklahoma

19. Virginia Tech

20. Washington

21. Oklahoma State

22. Florida

23. Northern Illinois

24. Auburn

25. Wisconsin

Here are a few thoughts from this week’s results:

• Baylor was finally tested a bit against Kansas State, but with all the carnage ahead of the Bears in the polls, simply winning was all that mattered. Baylor moved up three spots to No. 12.

• Texas Tech is all the way up to No. 16 and is now 6-0 this year under Kliff Kingsbury with a 3-0 record in the Big 12. The Red Raiders have West Virginia next, and still have Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Kansas State, Baylor and Texas, so we'll know soon just how for real they are.
