1-Alabama — Great win at tough venue after falling behind early.
2-Oregon — Ducks crush Vols & now have open date. Won’t be challenged until 10/12 at Washington.
3-Clemson — Potential tester Thursday night in Raleigh.
4-Georgia — After bye week, Dawgs host North Texas w/ LSU coming up on 9/28 in Athens.
5-Stanford — Poor performance in 34-20 non-covering win at Army.
6-LSU — Poised to pound Auburn in Baton Rouge this weekend.
7-South Carolina — Forget 35-25 final, Gamecocks dominated Vandy w/ 579-268 yardage advantage.
8-Texas A&M — Like Georgia, Aggies can outscore anybody, but that ‘D’ needs a lot of work.
9-FSU — ‘Noles have an open date before 10/19 showdown at Clemson (Tigers don’t).
10-UCLA — I don’t think much of Nebraska, but that Bruins beatdown was impressive nonetheless.

17-Ole Miss — Rebels looked outstanding in blowout win at Texas.

19-Baylor — Bears have a realistic chance to start 7-0 going into home game vs. Oklahoma.
20-Oklahoma St. — Cowboys have open date before going to Morgantown.
21-Arizona St. — Fortunate win over Wisconsin.
22-Wisconsin — Refs were wrong, but Gary Andersen was the goat.
23-Texas Tech — Red Raiders might be able to win their first seven before going to Norman on 10/26.
24-Va. Tech — Hokies have got to get more production out of their offense.
25-Central Florida — BCS sleeper? The O’Leary’s have a bye before hosting South Carolina.
