College Football Power Rankings Heading Into Week Six

We take a look around the college football world and rank the best teams in the country. It's the college football power rankings.

That's it, we're already past the quarter mark of the 2016 college football season. With that, most teams have shown us what they are all about while some have either gone to the wayside and others emerged as surprise contenders. Let's get to it, this week's college football power rankings.

25. Western Michigan (5-0) 

The Broncos deserve some love. Let's not forget they went to Northwestern to begin the year and knocked off the Wildcats. They beat rival Central Michigan 49-10 this weekend.

24. Virginia Tech (3-1) 

It's alright that their lone loss is to the team of fate Tennessee Volunteers. They got a nice win at East Carolina this weekend.

23. West Virginia (4-0)

Wins against Missouri, BYU and most recently Kansas State on Saturday get the Mountaineers into the Top 25 this week.

22. Florida State (3-2) 

The Seminoles have to be the best 3-2 team in the country, right? Actually no, that title belongs to the team they beat in Week 1, Ole Miss. That loss to North Carolina stings.

21. Boise State (4-0) 

The Broncos just keep being the Broncos. They knocked off Utah State at home this weekend.

20. Florida (4-1)

It wasn't fun, at least it didn't look fun, but the Gators went to Vanderbilt and picked up a 13-6 win. They have to keep improving, get strong quarterback play and hope Tennessee can't complete Hail Mary passes the rest of the year to have real SEC East hopes.

19. Stanford (3-1)

We learned that Washington is the real deal as they topped the Cardinal 44-6 on Friday. Christian McCaffrey was held to just 79 total yards.

18. Oklahoma (2-2)

The Sooners won a thriller on the road over TCU 52-46 this weekend. They get Charlie Strong and Texas on Saturday.

17. Arkansas (4-1)

They knocked off Alcorn State in a tuneup game before they host Alabama this weekend. It should be a doozy in Fayetteville.

16. Colorado (4-1)

It's almost as if everyone has forgotten their win at Oregon. They manhandled Oregon State this weekend 47-6 as well.

15. North Carolina (4-1)

If you can go to Florida State and grab a win, you've got yourself a pretty good football team. The Heels have seemingly put that Georgia loss in the rearview mirror.

14. Wisconsin (4-1)

They compete well at Michigan on Saturday, but couldn't put points on the board. Really, neither team's offenses looked spectacular in the 14-7 game.

13. Nebraska (5-0)

The Cornhuskers may be the team flying under the radar the most. They also don't play Michigan this season.

12. Miami (4-0)

They answered their first real test of the season at Georgia Tech on Saturday with a 35-21 victory. They will welcome a mad Florida State team to town this weekend.

11. Baylor (5-0)

They struggled at Iowa State, but showed some resiliency in coming back and picking up a 45-42 win over the Cyclones.

Rankings 10-1 can be seen down below.
