Golden Rankings, week 11

Florida's win over 6-5 South Carolina and TCU's win over 8-2 Utah are enough to move both of them past last week's #1, Alabama. TCU's stay at the top is probably short lived, as they close the season with winless New Mexico and 5-5 Wyoming. Even two wins won't keep them ahead of the two SEC teams who close with FSU and Auburn respectively, Texas who gets a championship game, or Cinncy, who gets 9-1 Pittsburgh in three weeks.

Top Riser from last week (FBS) - Florida Atlantic, up 27 places
Biggest Loser (FBS): Kansas State, down 21
Top Riser (FCS) : Hampton, up 26
Biggest Loser (FCS): Florida A&M, down 42
-Interestingly enough, these two played each other last week, with Hampton upseting A&M by 25 points.
Toughest Schedule (FBS): Washington, Opponent average - 47.90
Weakest Schedule (FBS): Northern Illinois, 152.40
Toughest Schedule (FCS): Northeastern, 97.90
Weakest Schedule (FCS): Old Dominion 205.25

Conference rankings are posted below. Not much changes, with the SEC leading the pack, the big East right behind, and the Big Ten and ACC fighting for third.
