Projected college football rankings after Tennessee overthrow Florida, Texas and Miami


Take a look at the projected college football standings after Tennessee overtook Florida, but Texas and Miami weren’t so lucky with upset losses.

With some of the matchups scheduled for Week 4, it was expected that there would be some big upheaval in the college football standings after Saturday. Some of this was inevitable, with some ranked opponents going head-to-head, but others were less obvious.

By mid-afternoon, the headliner was Tennessee’s No. 11 trying to exorcise his demons against Florida’s No. 20 in Knoxville. The Vols, despite trying to give every one of their fans heart palpitations in the process, got the job done to win for only the second time in the last 18 years of this rivalry.

Elsewhere in the country, however, we’ve seen Texas try to sleepwalk in Lubbock but get cut by Texas Tech. The most embarrassing loss, however, was Miami at home getting hammered by Middle Tennessee State, an upset no one saw coming.

So where does that still leave us with night games to play? Let’s take a look at the projected rankings of college football after these upheavals and big results.
