The usual three lead the second installment of the 2009 OCGR. Iowa is on their curtails as TCU rounds out the top five. TCU shows some promise to stir things up with a match-up against BYU this week.

Virginia Tech's disappointing loss dropped the Hokies from fifth to 12th. They are sandwiched between ACC foes Miami and Georgia Tech with only 0.33 points separating the three. The Big East managed to put three teams in the top 16 this week with Cincinnati jumping into the top ten.

Oregon and USC looms at six and seven. The winner of that battle should jump back into the top five. However, it looks like Texas and the SEC champ will be the top two teams as it sits right now.
