 1) Alabama Crimson Tide (6-0): def Arkansas 49-30

Last week-1

Another day at the office for the Crimson Tide. The game was over in the first half as they took a 35-17 halftime lead. The offense was clicking and the defense scored another touchdown. What’s not to like about Alabama? Seems like everything is coming together. It’s going to take a huge effort to knock them off.

 

 2) Ohio State Buckeyes (5-0): def Indiana 38-17

Last week-2

The Buckeyes got the job done. It wasn’t pretty but they won. Quarterback J.T. Barrett had a bad day passing but the rushing attack more than picked up the slack (290 yards). The defense was outstanding, holding the Hoosiers under 300 total yards. They are cruising along but Barrett needs to play better if they are going to win the Big Ten and make the playoffs.

 

 3) Clemson Tigers (6-0): def Boston College 56-10

Last week-3

The Tigers wasted no time disposing of an overmatched Eagles team. The offense is starting to resemble the unit I expected. I’m sure the fans are breathing a sigh of relief. The defense once again played lights out. They held Boston College to 251 total yards. Clemson is looking like serious contenders again.

 

 4) Michigan Wolverines (6-0): def Rutgers 78-0

Last week-4

The Wolverines destroyed a terrible Scarlett Knight team. This was a glorified scrimmage as Michigan played a lot of back ups. They rushed for nearly 500 yards (481). The defense was hardly challenged. The Wolverines held Rutgers to 39 total yards (yes, you read that right).

 

1d21a6491f593e4b21676c8b6b73bcd1 5) Washington Huskies (6-0): def Oregon 70-21

Last week-7

This is the second week in a row, the Huskies have made a resounding statement. They crushed a bad Ducks team who had no answers to stop the onslaught. Quarterback Jake Browning and running back Myles Gaskin are making a name for themselves with another big game. Washington’s defense is one of the best in the country and few know about it. I now have to include them as a serious playoff contender. I was impressed enough to move them up two spots in my poll.

Last week-8

The Aggies blew a two touchdown lead but found a way to win. They lost these games last season. Quarterback Trevor Knight overcame early interceptions to lead Texas A&M to victory. Running back Trayveon Williams was spectacular rushing for 217 yards. The defense had too many breakdowns but got the game ending interception in OT.

 

Louisville_Cardinal_Logo_New 7) Louisville Cardinals (4-1): Idle

Last week-5

They will host Duke next week. Look for the Cardinals to make a statement and put on a show. The buzz has fizzled around Louisville after losing to Clemson.

 

NebraskaCornhuskers9 8) Nebraska Cornhuskers (5-0): Idle

Last week-Not ranked

They simply benefit from teams losing in front of them. Nebraska travels to Indiana next week. Can they capitalize on this opportunity?

 

 9) Baylor Bears (5-0): Idle

Last week-Not ranked

After all the offseason turmoil and the firing of head coach Art Briles, it seemed like a long shot that the Bears would be in this position. They host the Kansas Jayhawks next week.

 

 10) Wisconsin Badgers (4-1): Idle

Last week-Not ranked

The week off for the Badgers came at a good time. They host #2 Ohio State next week.
