Notes

  • The undefeateds stay the same. Alabama and Texas had its hands full on the road and Florida won big at home. I didn't see anything that would lead me to change those three, did you?
  • As for the other three, I nearly had Cincy jumping TCU, but right now the Horned Frogs' resume is still better in my opinion. Should Cincy move up if it beats Pitt?
  • The rest is just a massive fustercluck. It's tough to make sense of, but I tried to pay attention to head-to-head results, which even then leads to some inconsistency, especially in the Pac 10.
  • Are the Hokies too high? In a week where everyone was getting all they could handle in rivalry games, especially on the road, Tech took care of business and then some.
  • Nebraska's back in the poll. Just in time to get crushed by Texas.
