Dropped Out: Texas (#9), Wisconsin (#11), Nebraska (#14), Wake Forest (#16), TCU (#17), Clemson (#24).
A Few Thoughts: We’ve decided to keep Bama at #1 seeing as how they’ve now beaten two top 10 teams and at this point, have absolutely the strongest resume in the country. Oklahoma and Penn State both look fantastically strong right now and look to be the front runners in the Big 12 and the Big Ten respectively. Missouri is still undefeated and looking strong, and having an off week doesn’t hurt when all the teams in front of you lose.
LSU is the only undefeated team in the SEC, and Auburn’s only loss was by 1 point. Brigham Young has what appears to be a relatively easy route to win the Mountain West. Georgia lost to the #1 team in our poll, and although Southern Cal lost to a 1-2 team, they still look to be the strongest team in the Pac 10.
The second 10 is kicked off by South Florida, although we’re a bit leery as to how they’re fare with the rest of their schedule, but being undefeated, still has the edge on OSU whose shellacking at the hands of USC looks a bit worse this week. Vandy deserves to stay where they are for now, until they get into some SEC games, Virginia Tech has rebounded nicely since the opening week loss to ECU, OK State is still undefeated though they haven’t played anyone.
Kentucky and Ball State round out the second 20 until they lose (which should be any minute now), and the last 5 really are a toss up with Tulsa bringing up the rear for being undefeated.
