Default Only Team with 2 Wins

Looking at the current AP rankings, I noticed that we (I believe) are the ONLY team with two wins over Top 15 opponents....pretty surprising and really interesting....

1 Alabama (56) 9-0 1472
2 Florida State (3) 9-0 1418
3 Ohio State 9-0 1310
4 Baylor 8-0 1303
5 Stanford 8-1 1272
6 Oregon 8-1 1139
7 Auburn 9-1 1109
8 Clemson 8-1 1049
9 Missouri 9-1 1012
10 Texas A&M 8-2 909
11 South Carolina 7-2 857
12 Oklahoma State 8-1 780
13 UCLA 7-2 669
14 Michigan State 8-1 633
15 UCF 7-1 596
16 Fresno State 9-0 588
17 Wisconsin 7-2 503
18 LSU 7-3 470
19 Louisville 8-1 467
20 Northern Illinois 9-0 396
21 Arizona State 7-2 362
22 Oklahoma 7-2 285
23 Texas 7-2 185
24 Miami (FL) 7-2 121
25 Georgia 6-3 78

We'd be 5th or 4th shoot maybe higher and Mike Davis would be getting Heisman love that he should be getting anyway. Unreal his name isn't even mentioned. Our players get no respect just cause they at THE USC. If Clowney played at Alabama or LSU last year he would have been in New York and if Mike Davis played at Alabama or LSU he'd be getting the respect he deserves Heisman wise this year.

Caring for games has a 5 year time limit for me. Make it to Atlanta and it will will accelerate the process, don't and it will probably go the full 5 years.

Could it be that the underdog just outplayed the higher ranked team its not always being overrated. They are called upsets for a reason, any person can ignorantly say a higher ranked is overrated but not look at the substance. Your argument is way too simplistic.

It might be simplistic, but so is arguing that the ranking when they played should count, when the season continues to unfold and reveal the true value of a team. UCF is now ranked 15th....so the fact that we beat them before they were ranked has no merit? That's nonsense. Maybe we didn't realize how good they were when we beat them, but with 9 games of the season knocked out, they are revealing they're a pretty dang good team...so the win looks better now than it did then...as it SHOULD! Ranking at time of playing means much less as the season wears on.

Look at Georgia they were a legit top 10 team but plagued by injuries does that make them overrated?
