This week, we saw the top-10 fluctuate slightly with Clemson switching spots with Oklahoma and Penn State swapping sports with USC most notably. However, the rest of the rankings have proven particularly volatile with Mississippi State going unranked to 17th in the country while UCLA and Stanford were knocked out of the rankings after losing both of their matchups on Saturday.
