College Football Rankings: The Biggest Movers In The Week 9 USA Today Poll

The biggest risers in the Week 9 USA Today poll are, of course, teams that took care of business against ranked foes. And it's no surprise that Missouri makes the largest leap after taking down Oklahoma, vaulting eight spots from 16th to eighth.

On the flip side of the coin, Oklahoma takes a tumble after losing its first game of the season, dropping to 11th from third. LSU falls, too, after a loss to Auburn gave the Tigers their first blemish, but going from sixth to 13th isn't as steep a decline.

There's very little volatility overall in this poll, as voters are content to move teams up for winning and penalize teams for losing.
