One week after a dismal loss, Florida State responded with a dominant victory over Boston College stuffed with enough big performances that sorting out the top of the power rankings is a nearly impossible task. Here's how things stand after seven weeks, with last week's rankings in parentheses.

1. Chris Thompson, RB (1)
It wasn't a spectacular game for Thompson, who finished with 68 yards rushing on 10 carries, but his cumulative work for the season keeps him atop the power rankings. He has now tallied 640 rushing yards for the year, surpassing Devonta Freeman's team-leading tally from all of last season in just seven games. Thompson needs to average just 60 yards per game the rest of the way to become FSU's first 1,000-yard back since 1996.
