ESPN updates college football power rankings after Week 9

It wasn’t the wildest college football Saturday of the year, but there were certainly some teams that asserted themselves, while others languished a bit.

Ohio State struggled for about three-quarters (or more) of the game against Penn State, TCU and West Virginia were in a match,

Wake Forest lost to Louisville, Syracuse lost to Notre Dame, UCF upset Cincinnati, and South Carolina lost to Mizzou.

Meanwhile, Michigan dominated, but didn’t completely blow out MSU, Georgia did blow out Florida, Tennessee eviscerated Kentucky,

while Oregon handled business against Cal and USC hung on for dear life against Arizona.

ESPN updated its power rankings once the week was said and done.

Here are where each team stands against the others in the eyes of the worldwide leader.
