Move to 5-0, and move up in the Fan Pulse Poll. This week the TDG readers decided the Minnesota Golden Gophers was good enough to climb up the list to #21! Fortunately, or unfortunately depending on how you feel about rankings, TDG is still the only site to put the Gophers in the Top 25, so they remain on the outside looking in at the national Top 25 once again.

Here is how you the TDG readers ranked the Top 25. Previous weeks rankings in parentheses:

  1. Alabama (1)
  2. Ohio State (2)
  3. Clemson (4)
  4. Georgia (3)
  5. LSU (5)
  6. Oklahoma (6)
  7. Florida (8)
  8. Wisconsin (10)
  9. Penn State (11)
  10. Notre Dame (9)
  11. Texas (12)
  12. Auburn (7)
  13. Oregon (13)
  14. Boise State (15)
  15. Michigan (19)
  16. Utah (17)
  17. Iowa (14)
  18. Washington (16)
  19. Arizona State (NR)
  20. Wake Forest (NR)
  21. Minnesota (24)
  22. SMU (NR)
  23. UCF (21)
  24. Virginia (18)
  25. Oklahoma State (NR)

Alabama remains on top for a second week in a row, with most of the top 10 remaiing relatively static—with the exception of Auburn dropping five spots after losing to Florida. Michigan jumps up four and Iowa drops three after the Wolverines 10-7 slugfest win over the Hawkeyes. The biggest jumper this week is Arizona State who is up to #19 this week after being unranked last week. They also had a bye....so maybe just a reaction to them beating Cal two weeks ago? Wake Forest also with the delayed bump and SMU sneaks in for the first time after a big come from behind win.

Here is how the national poll shook out:

You were asked about the most anticipated game for this upcoming week...and the Red River Shootout reigns supreme to no surprise:

Oklahoma vs. Texas - 38.5%

Florida vs. LSU - 32%

Penn State vs. Iowa - 10.1%

USC vs. Notre Dame - 8.3%

FSU vs. Clemson - 5.1%

Alabama vs. Texas A&M - 4.3%

Bucknell vs. Colgate - 1.7%

But What About How We Feel About the Gophers?

For the second week in a row, and to no surprise at all, the Gophers approval rating remains just like their record. A perfect 100% approval.
