Campus Insiders’ 1-128 college football rankings heading into Week 6 of the season. A look at how all 128 teams grade out after another weekend of action.


There’s a new top-ranked team in the Pac-12 this week after Washington crushed a wounded Stanford squad on Friday night.

The Huskies’ easy victory makes them serious contenders for the College Football Playoff, as Chris Petersen’s squad does not exactly have the most difficult slate of the top contenders.

Meanwhile, Clemson is the team to beat in the ACC Atlantic after its win over Louisville, but the Cardinals are not out of the CFP equation. Plenty of football remains for Bobby Petrino’s squad to reassert itself in the picture.

In the Midwest on Saturday, Michigan and Wisconsin had an old-school Big Ten battle, while Ohio State continued its offensive surge.

Where does your team rank after five weeks of action?
