Notes On The Rankings:
- Virginia Tech keeps winning and I keep moving them down. The ACC is only better than the Mountain West because of their depth. Unless the ACC champion plays the Big East in their BCS bowl, I don't see them coming close to winning.
- The top three in the Pac-12 are a bit tough, with each beating another, but I think that Stanford is the clear third place at the moment. They're resume may stack up a bit better than USC's, but I have no doubt in my mind that the Trojans would win that game if they played again. Oregon I feel is playing at a slightly higher level than USC at the moment, but the margin is pretty slim.
- Once again the middle to bottom of the Pac-12 is a mess, but I gave the Buffs a lot of credit for winning that game on the road. Taking away the debacle in Westwood, it's clear that this team is much better than they showed this season when they are healthy.
Who would you move up or down?
