ESPN has updated its college football power rankings following Week 8 of the 2019 regular season. There's been a bit of a shakeup.

Week 8 featured one massive upset, with previously-unbeaten Wisconsin losing a shocking game to Illinois.

Penn State got the win of the week, beating Michigan at home to remain in College Football Playoff contention. Ohio State also dominated in the Big Ten, blowing out Northwestern.

Alabama, Clemson and Oklahoma also looked quite good.

ESPN has since updated its college football power rankings.

  1. LSU
  2. Ohio State
  3. Alabama
  4. Oklahoma
  5. Clemson
  6. Penn State
  7. Notre Dame
  8. Oregon
  9. Florida
  10. Georgia
  11. Auburn
  12. Utah
  13. Baylor
  14. Wisconsin
  15. Minnesota

Week 9 of the 2019 college football regular season will be a huge one.

Ohio State is set to host Wisconsin in Columbus, while Michigan is taking on Notre Dame and LSU is playing Auburn.

Another rankings shakeup is likely coming next week.
