JFP Top 25: Week 6

Last week, I opened the JFP Top 25 explaining that October is the month college football's best teams begin to separate themselves from the rest. This is the month when the pretenders turn into pumpkins, and contenders become monsters.
    

This week, the top 25 features a lot of shake-ups as eight teams in the poll lost over the weekend. Four teams didn't survive the purge and fell out of the poll.

Clemson and Michigan make the biggest jump this week going from not ranked to the 14th and 15th ranked teams. TCU takes the biggest tumble, going from ranked to unranked.

Our march to the Alabama/LSU matchup continues this week as the Tide and Tigers keep rolling. This matchup could be a de facto National Championship game Nov. 5 at Alabama.

Dropping out: TCU Horned Frogs, South Florida Bulls, Baylor Bears, Florida State Seminoles
