By Brian Edwards
1-Alabama — Schedule is a total joke the next month (sucks for rest of SEC).
2-Oregon — Seems like Ducks score 40 by mid-second qtr. each week.
3-Clemson — Took care of business and got the cash at the ‘Cuse.
4-Stanford — UW’s TD drive w/ fake punt & roughing QB on 3rd-down stop killed backers.
5-LSU — Great response to adversity on the road in Starkville.
6-Georgia — Kudos to Murray for the Great Escape, but major injury concerns.
7-Florida St. — Winston looks nasty. ‘Noles have 2 weeks to prep for Clemson.
8-Texas A&M — Should be a thriller Saturday in Oxford.
9-Baylor — Wanted to elevate ’em even higher, but slate has been too soft.
10-Ohio St. – Oscar Weiner is 18-0, but hasn’t played a team in top-15 yet.
11-Florida — Great matchup between UF ‘D’ and LSU’s ‘O.’ Murphy continues to impress.
12-South Carolina — S-Carolina backers have been crushed by 3 backdoor covers.
13-UCLA — Love me some Brett Hundley, who had TD catch, pass & run at Utah.
14-Louisville — Fortunate to get RU on short week at home after triple-OT win.
15-Miami — Al Golden doing a masterful job w/ the ‘Canes.
16-Northwestern — Terrible spot by refs killed upset hopes. Horrific ATS beat.
17-Washington — Probably deserve to be higher. Price playing outstanding.
18-Oklahoma — Still unbeaten, but I can’t get this team figured out.
19-Wisconsin — Best 2-loss team in America. Tough date w/ Northwestern this weekend.
20-Missouri — James Franklin is back to 2011 form.
21-Texas Tech –Great chance to be 7-0 going into Norman on Oct. 26.
22-Va. Tech — Hokies have quietly won 5 straight. They’ll be favored in next 3.
23-Auburn — Huge win over Ole Miss. Tigers get ‘Bama and UGA at home in November.
24-Michigan — Doesn’t seem like Wolverines are 5-0, but they are.
25-Michigan St. — Best defense in the Big Ten and it’s not even close.
In the mix: Oklahoma St., Fresno St., Ole Miss, Arizona St. & Notre Dame
