7) Kansas State
8) Texas Tech
9) Texas A&M
10) Iowa State
Notes On The Rankings:
- As soon as I moved Oklahoma up to first, they lose to Missouri. Blast. Oregon gets the call over Auburn for now, but they are really 1a and 1b in my mind. I'll pick a true #1 this weekend after Oregon plays USC this weekend, they're first tough game of the season.
- For now, I think the Sooners are the second best one-loss team. I watched the Missouri game over again and other than the fact that OU got absolutely zero pressure on Blaine Gabbert, I am still very surprised that the Tigers one that game. The Sooners blew a lot of opportunities.
- As boring as some national writers are making it out to be, I actually feel like a Missouri - Michigan State game would be a great match up. Two very solid, well built teams. That being said, they are both over ranked and will each finish with at least one loss.
- Big 12: How shocking was the Texas - Iowa State game? Certainly makes our match-up with the Cyclones seem a little bit tougher doesn't it. At least, we aren't the only team with quarterback issues. Texas A&M is now considering starting Ryan Tannehill over the preseason Big 12 player of the year. Has to be disappointing for the Aggies.
