Here is this week's ballot.

3 Texas 1
4 TCU 1

6 Florida 5
7 Ohio State
8 Oregon
9 Iowa
10 Penn State
11 Virginia Tech
12 West Virginia
13 Georgia Tech 1
14 Pittsburgh 1
15 LSU 3
16 Oregon State 1
17 Brigham Young 2
18 Houston 1
19 Southern Cal 3
20 Utah
21 Oklahoma State
22 Stanford 1
23 Wisconsin 1
24 Clemson 2
25 Central Michigan
Last week's ballot

Dropped Out: Nobody.

  • I believe this is the first time I have gone a week without dropping anyone out of the Top 25. It's no credit to me, only that there were so few games involving fringe Top 25 teams that it was hard to seriously consider moving anyone in or out.
  • The one team I thought about moving in was Nebraska. Full marks to them for the effort against Texas, but it's hard to justify taking anyone off the ballot for a Huskers team that I just don't think is all that good.
  • Cincinnati has been in front of Texas for some time now. Neither team is perfect -- outside of their record -- and neither team would be a serious favorite against a more balanced Alabama squad.
