Week 7 #college football rankings are rewarding WSU and TCU. The Week 7 Coaches Poll has the TCU Horned Frogs up to No. 7 and the #Washington State Cougars up to No. 9. Both schools now safely reside inside the top 10, the result of some very nice performances in Week 6. WSU beat a favored Oregon team, while TCU survived for a huge win over West Virginia.

The Washington State Cougars moved to 6-0 and became bowl eligible by beating the USC Trojans and Oregon Ducks over the last two weeks. The coaches rewarded WSU by pushing them up two spots and into the top 10 for the first time in a while. The Texas Christian University Horned Frogs beat then No.

6 Oklahoma State and then No. 23 ranked West Virginia to move up to No. 7 in the Coaches Poll.

The rest of the Week 7 top 10

Alabama received 57 first-place votes to remain No. 1 in the Week 7 Coaches Poll, while Clemson drew eight first-place votes to remain at No. 2 this week. Following them now are Penn State, Washington, and Georgia as the new-look top five teams. The rest of the top 10, in order, is Wisconsin, TCU, Ohio State, Washington State, and Miami. TCU made the biggest jump, moving up three spots in the latest poll.

The Week 7 #Ap Top 25 hasn’t been released, but it should be relatively similar to what the coaches felt this week. The writers did have Georgia ahead of Washington last week and already had TCU up at No. 8, so it could be interesting to see how they feel now. WSU had been bumped up to No.

11, but should also see an improvement due to losses above them in the rankings.

Who suffered the most in the latest coach voting?

The Oklahoma Sooners dropped nine spots down to No. 12 and the Michigan Wolverines fell to No. 16. Those were huge drops for the schools, with Oklahoma falling to Iowa State and Michigan falling to in-state rival Michigan State. The Utah Utes also dropped five spots, falling to No. 23 after a loss to a previously unranked Stanford team. Stanford now makes an appearance at No. 25 in the poll, giving the Pac-12 Conference five teams in the top 25 for Week 7.

Some of the interesting Week 7 games that could affect the next rankings are Auburn at LSU, Utah at USC, and Oregon at Stanford. What most college football fans really want to see are the first College Football Playoff rankings of the season. That’s where things will start to really surface when it comes to the best teams in the country. Will the Alabama Crimson Tide still be easily ranked No. 1 overall? Will a team like the Washington State Cougars get a boost? Next up, though, will be the Week 7 college football rankings from the writers (AP Top 25).
