Remember last week when we said that there was so much crazy football action that we didn’t know how we were going to rank all the teams? Well, week four was so much crazier as a few top teams were just demolished — at home, no less — and the college football rankings for week five will see quite a change.

Each week, the writers of Spartan Avenue will vote on who they think will jump into the weekly Top 25 and who deserves to be kicked out. This week was a bit of a challenge, though, as some teams that were on the fringe of getting in basically shot themselves in the foot with losses and other squads ranked higher acted like they wanted out.

The season is a third of the way through and we are starting to see what the College Football Playoff race is going to really look like.

While even the teams in the top-five have been struggling to start the year, there is still plenty of time for them to gel and become the type of powerhouses which everyone had expected coming in.

No. 1-ranked Ohio State had a tough time last week taking care of Northern Illinois. No. 2-ranked Michigan State needed a fourth-quarter push to put away Central Michigan this week and No. 3 TCU squeaked out a three-point win against unranked Texas Tech on the road.

It’s that time of year when rankings become more important and wins are just wins, no matter how pretty they are.

Let’s take a look at the Spartan Avenue week five college football rankings, as voted by our writers.
