1. USC (10-0)
Trojans haven’t been challenged since the Irish.
2. Texas (10-0)
Longhorns registered their 9th game scoring 40+ points. Third scoring 60+.
3. Miami, FL (8-1)
Canes hoping for a stumble by top two. Nothing learned against Wake last week.
4. Penn State (9-1)
Don’t screw the pooch against a faded Michigan State team.
5. LSU (8-1)
Just felt 10 points wasn’t enough to hold them down.
6. Virginia Tech (8-1)
Hokies rise to #6 based on their season and others losing around them.
7. Alabama (9-1)
Sure they can’t score but lets not bury the Tide, the LSU game was in OT.
8. Oregon (9-1)
Win over Washington State didn’t make a compelling argument for the BCS.
9. Ohio State (8-2)
Can seal a BCS bid if they win in the Big House. Hammered Northwestern.
10. Notre Dame (7-2)
Just like Penn State, needing not to screw the pooch.
11. Auburn (8-2)
Perception changing about the Tigers, like the UGA game changed on 4th down.

Big East really hopes the Mountaineers win out.
13. Georgia (7-2)
Take Three to win the SEC East comes this weekend against Kentucky.
14. UCLA (9-1)
Gutsy win over ASU. Did they notice that U-Dub spanked Arizona by 24?
15. Michigan (7-3)
Could spoil Buckeyes hopes for BCS and put themselves into a January bowl.
16. Texas Christian (10-1)
17. Fresno State (8-1)
Go with this: Bulldogs do the impossible and beat the Trojans. BCS?
18. Louisville (7-2)
Yawn. Prepping for the Gator Bowl.
19. South Carolina (7-3)
Gamecocks could play in January should they beat Clemson. No fighting.
20. Florida (7-3)
Urban Meyer is riding the genius-goofball roller coaster. Schooled by Spurrier.
21. Texas Tech (8-2)
Well, the BCS is over. Still could screw the Cotton Bowl invite with loss to OU.
22. Iowa State (7-3)
Change 2 OT losses and Cyclones would be prepping for Texas for Big XII title.
23. Colorado (7-3)
They were driving to tie the score before the pick six against Iowa State.
24. Oklahoma (6-3)
No real big win, but that could change with a win in Lubbock this weekend.
25. UTEP (8-1)Mike Price is a magician and some team needs to be #25.
