College Football Conference Power Rankings: Week 9

Trick… or treat? That’s what every conference had to wonder as Week 9 yielded more shock results for teams from Miami to Michigan State to Mizzou. Previously dominant teams came out in their best meek constumes, previous doormats arose to crow loudly as conference challengers, and a strange season got a little eerier with the results.

We head into November, the final month of college football’s regular season, with conference pictures across the land still as shrouded in fog as a punch bowl filled with dry ice. Everywhere you look, teams that we might’ve expected to be unmasked by now — Syracuse, Baylor, South Carolina and Hawaii among them — still come out as spooky as ever week after week and have swapped the costume of the creampuff for the look of a contender.

By this point only four conferences of the eleven in NCAA’s top division can still boast an undefeated squad. The Spartans’ fall from grace in Iowa City and the Tigers’ tumble in Lincoln meant that both the Big Ten and Big XII lost some of their grandiosity in the bargain. Now just five of the 120 teams can boast an unblemished record two-thirds of the way through 2010 — Boise State (WAC/7-0), Oregon (Pac-10/8-0), Auburn (SEC/9-0) and the two Mountain West foes set to match up next weekend, TCU (9-0) and Utah (8-0).

With the Horned Frogs traveling to Salt Lake City next weekend, the Mountain West will be down to just one undefeated left, and college football will be down to four. Where does that put the conference standings in relation? Well, nothing has changed but the numbers in the quotient itself. We’re seeing a little separation of the top four BCS conferences, with the two at the top getting stronger and stronger and the gaps ballooning in between. The two preeminent non-AQ leagues are also separating themselves from the two BCS conferences which have sputtered most this year. The order may be the same, but where do they stand in relation to one another? Let’s find out…
