|Last week's ballot|
Dropped Out: Notre Dame (#21).
- Houston gets in, though I'm skittish about this team. For now, I'll follow the "Hey, they won on the field" rule.
- I'm unimpressed by the last two positions on this ballot. Guidance would be appreciated.
- The top three remain intact, but it should be noted that there was a serious temptation to move Texas ahead of USC. I did not, because of issues with the quality of the opponent. After all, Ohio State is better than Wyoming.
