The top of the standings shuffled a bit, and four new teams enter the poll.

There's only one team in the top spot of this week's composite poll, as Vanderbilt distanced itself a bit from Texas A&M with a 4-0 week. The Commodores are currently on a six game winning streak, and is 16-2 since losing to TCU in Los Angeles.

Texas A&M holds on to the No. 2 spot after a 3-0 week that saw the first of three games against Kentucky cancelled. The Aggies square off against Rice and Mississippi State this week, which should put their 30-2 record to the test.

Meanwhile, LSU jumped TCU for the No. 3 spot, as the Tigers went 4-0 last week. The Horned Frogs went 2-2, dropping games against UT-Arlington and Texas Tech. They'll look to bounce back in a five-game week that features Abilene Christian, No. 20 Dallas Baptist, and Kansas State.

Houston, Nebraska, Texas and Arizona all fell out of the rankings after poor showings last week, while Maryland, Florida Atlantic, Missouri, and Coastal Carolina took their spots. Here are the full standings:
