2009 Gus Rankings: Week 6

Here are this week's Gus Rankings. No change at the top or bottom this week. Virginia Tech gained six points over the weekend and gives a good example of the power of having defeated winning teams. Three of their points came from beating Boston College, but also got single points from victories by Duke, Marshall and Nebraska. Their single loss came to the second team in the rankings, Alabama, and they haven't lost yet. If Virginia Tech had won that game they would have a sizable advantage on the rest of the field.

At this point, it may be worthwhile to look at which conferences seem to be doing the best. I won't provide anything of length at this point, but look at the top 11 teams (3 teams tied for ninth):

SEC: 3
Big 10: 2
Big 12: 2
ACC: 1
Mountain West: 1
Pac-10: 1
WAC: 1

Should be to fun to see how it shifts around once conference play begins. Having more successful conference opponents from top to bottom should rise the tide of all the boats in the conference.
