My Top 25

Another week, a lot more clarity to the Top 25.
Nationally, the big question was whether Auburn would overtake Oregon. Impressive as Auburn’s comeback was, Oregon basically blew out a solid Arizona team, and the Ducks’ win over Stanford — which seems to get a little forgotten in all of this — looks better all the time. I see no reason to drop the Ducks down. Neither, ultimately, did the consensus of voters, as Oregon remained No. 1 (see the complete poll here as well as links to every voter’s ballot).
Stanford, though, rises to No. 4 in my poll and Wisconsin, looking like the class of the Big Ten, to number five.
I dropped Boise State to No, 10, and while Nevada rose a few spots in my poll, I still have it behind the Broncos, and some always question why when two teams just played head-to-head and one beat the other, how the loser could be ahead of the winner. I think the nature of the game — at home for Nevada and that BSU obviously had numerous chances to win it — means it was pretty much a toss-up, which then means I go back to overall resume, and to me Boise State’s remains stronger.
Here’s my entire ballot:


1, Oregon
2, Auburn
3, TCU
4, Stanford
5, Wisconsin
6, Ohio State
7, Michigan State
8, Oklahoma
9, Arkansas
10, Boise State
11, LSU
12, Virginia Tech
13, Oklahoma State
14, Texas A&M
15 , Nebraska
16, South Carolina
17, Alabama
18, Nevada
19, Missouri
20, Florida State
21, Mississippi State
22, West Virginia
23, Utah
24, Tulsa
25, Arizona
