1). Alabama Crimson Tide- Beat a very good Texas A&M team handily after a close first half.
2). Michigan Wolverines- Dominate win over Illinois to stay undefeated.
3). Washington Huskies- This team is better than people realize. Great on offense and defense and they have a big time QB.
4). Clemson Tigers- Move up during the bye week with Ohio State’s loss. Huge game against Florida State looms on the horizon.
5). Louisville Cardinals- Not surprising that they beat N.C. State, what was surprising was how bad they beat them.
6). Baylor Bears- Still not sold on the Bears, but they keep winning.
7). Ohio State Buckeyes- The Buckeyes have not played well in over 3 weeks. They still control their own destiny with Nebraska, Michigan, and a possible Big Ten championship game in the near future.
8). Nebraska Cornhuskers- A top 10 team should beat Purdue much easier than the Cornhuskers did.
9). Florida Gators- Bye Week.
10). Florida State Seminoles- Bye Week.
11). West Virginia Mountaineers- A Bis 12 team that plays defense! That alone gives them a shot to do big things this year.
12). Wisconsin Badgers- Solid win over Iowa.
13). Texas A&M- Played well for a half against Alabama, still a very good team.
14). Auburn Tigers- A hot team coming off a huge blowout of Arkansas.
15). Boise State- I team ranked this high should handle a team like BYU at home much easier than the Broncos did.
16). Western Michigan- Good win over an underrated Eastern Michigan team.
17). Oklahoma Sooners- What if they had a defense?
18). LSU Tigers- Look like a different team since Les Miles has been gone.
19). Colorado Buffaloes- Great defensive effort against Stanford, this team will be really good next year.
20). Utah Utes- Good win over UCLA.
21). Penn State Nittany Lions- A HUGE win for the Nittany Lions program. Are they turning the corner?
22). Navy Midshipmen- Good performance against a quality Memphis team.
23). Virginia Tech- Very impressive win over Miami(Fla).
24). North Carolina- A good team they just aren’t consistent enough.
25). Tennessee Volunteers- Had a bye week, the Volunteers need to come out ready to go.
