College Football Rankings Week 5: Illinois still receiving Coaches Poll votes

New, 7 comments

As we head into the conference season, there still isn't a clear number one team in the country.

Mike Granse-USA TODAY Sports

Each of the top ten teams in the nation were in action on Saturday, and it was a mixed bag of results. No. 1 Ohio State and No. 2 Michigan State handled their final tests of the non-conference slate, but third-ranked TCU had major trouble with Texas Tech. They were able to escape by scoring a touchdown with only 23 seconds remaining. Notre Dame, Georgia, and LSU all throttled their opponents to remain undefeated and solidify their place in the top ten

Some teams, however, didn't have quite as easy a time this weekend. No. 16 Arizona got destroyed by UCLA on the national stage Saturday night, and thirteenth-ranked Oregon got blown out at home versus Utah in an embarrassing loss. No. 20 Georgia Tech was upset by fellow ACC foe Duke, and No. 22 BYU was shutout on the road against Michigan. Missouri managed to stay in the polls after nearly losing to UConn last weekend, but quickly fell right back out of them following a loss on the road to Kentucky.

The biggest story from an Illinois perspective is that they're still receiving votes after narrowly defeating Middle Tennessee. The Illini will face a much bigger test at home against Nebraska next weekend, and they might gain some steam towards the top 25 rankings if they can upset the Huskers.
