College Football Rankings: Comparing The Week 8 Polls

The only glaring differences in the Week 8 USA Today and Week 8 AP Poll have to do with yesterday's biggest upset and the respect given to one Pac-10 school.

In the USA Today poll, Wisconsin is one spot behind Ohio State despite beating the Buckeyes on Saturday; in the AP Poll, the Badgers are one spot ahead. And while the USA Today poll has Arizona ranked near the bottom of the top 20, the AP Poll slides the Wildcats in ahead of unbeatens Oklahoma State and Missouri.

Both polls rank the same 25 teams.
