Entering Week 5 of the 2014 College Football season, there were 25 undefeated teams among the 128 in FBS. After last Saturday, only 17 remain unbeaten, which had a direct impact on the current college football rankings. Almost half of these teams are coming from the Southeastern Conference (Alabama, Auburn, Mississippi State, Texas A&M, Ole Miss), 3 teams are from Pac-12 (Oregon, Arizona, and UCLA) and two more are independent (Notre Dame and BYU).For the most part, Week 5 didn’t bring many surprises, in fact the top 5 teams in the nation closed the weekend without incurring real damage, but by looking the current standings and AP rankings, a few things are becoming quite clear days ahead of Week 6:
- SEC and Pac-12 are the best conferences so far.
- With the exception of the No.21 ranked Nebraska Cornhuskers (5-0), the Big Ten conference is nothing but a big disappointment this season.
- Florida State isn’t playing like the No.1 ranked team in the nation.
- Arkansas has not been able to win a conference game and now is 0-14 against SEC rivals.
