The final AP Top 25 and Coaches Poll of the regular season are out (you can find them both here, though note the BCS poll on this link is last week’s.).
Somewhat amazingly, the top 11 on my ballot are also the top 11 in the final poll. The first place where I stepped out of lockstep with the rest is putting BYU at No. 12.
Like the final ballot, I have four Pac-10 teams in my final poll — Oregon, Oregon State, Arizona and Stanford. Hard to rate either Cal or USC, each in my poll last week, in it again after this week, though I see the Trojans got 38 points and the Bears 14.
UW played five teams this year in what are the final regular season rankings, going 1-4, beating Arizona but losing to Oregon, Oregon State, Stanford and LSU.
Here is my ballot for this week:
6, Boise State
8, Ohio State
9, Georgia Tech
11, Penn State
13, Virginia Tech
15, West Virginia
16, Oregon State
22, Oklahoma State
24, Central Michigan
25, East Carolina
