Updated national rankings after the Cal game

(Please note: though this is posted under my name, all words and data after these parentheses were entirely written and researched by Fox71. He was having some formatting issues on his computer, so we're hoping that the table you'll find after the jump is reasonably readable.  -KSBruin)

Here’s how we rank in national statistics after the Cal game.  There are some improvements, as you might expect after a nice win.  Again, no cherry-picking - these are all the stats listed in the website I checked, http://www.ncaa.com/stats/football/fbs.  I leave you to draw your own conclusions.
