It's October, which means we're still early enough in the season that anything can happen, but we've also seen enough football to get a better idea of what to expect. It also means that my rankings, while still somewhat volatile, are settling in. We'll see a big change here and there -- like possibly a Bottom Five team falling out of the rankings altogether -- but for the most part, our Bottom 25 teams are our Bottom 25 teams.

When you're ranked here early in the season, you might be a victim of circumstance. When you're ranked here in October, well, it might be time to start unpacking those boxes you've left unattended. Sit down. Get comfortable. Stay awhile.

No longer ranked: Ohio (24), Tulane (23), Georgia Tech (19), Northern Illinois (17), Middle Tennessee (13), Georgia State (5)
