As expected, Oregon takes over #2. I think FSU takes it back after beating Miami. Then, the following week if Oregon beats the Furd, Oregon will remain #2.

Yah. Agree with Acuda above: Florida state if they beat Miami this week will jump Oregon, but then their schedule goes in the toilet, but then in 2 weeks assuming Oregon beats Stanford, Oregon will jump FSU and remain at #2 the rest of the season barring any setbacks.

I'm glad to see a local underdog climbing up the ranks, but can some explain to me how NIU is ranked at all? I realize they're undefeated and I appreciate that they've beat two Big Ten teams on the road. But just about anyone can be Purdon't right now, and the rest of their victories have come against seriously weak programs (EIU being a notable exception but they're still only an FCS team and that game could have gone either way). So as far as I can tell then, their only semi-impressive feat was to beat Iowa in Iowa City. Does this merit a rank of 17th?

Nope.

I also don't believe that Baylor should be in the Top 10, they haven't played a single ranked team yet all year!!!!!!!! All of the other Top 10 teams have played at least 2 other ranked teams (and most won...). I guess I'll pass my final judgement on Baylor after this month when they play three ranked teams back to back.

Right now, I'm most impressed with Mizzou. After last season I wasn't paying attention to them at all this year. I didn't think they'd be able to hold their own at all this month, but they beat UGA and then beat UF with their starting QB out. They lost this past weekend but only because of OT.

I also love how Oregon is just kicking ass this season, it's always good to see a great team that doesn't come from the south or the midwest, ya know?

35-0 in the first quarter this week, Winston has only finished one game this season (@Clemson)... yet FSU drops a position. The playoffs can't come sooner.

Welcome to the world of Oregon and Marcus Mariota. The Ducks are getting into the meat of their schedule with Stanford in 2 weeks. You will go to 2 next week after you destroy Miami. The media is already loving you guys, so you may make up ground in the human polls. I still think if the Ducks beat Stanford then that should be enough to stay at 2 barring any loss. If we lose and y'all win out I will be rooting for the Noles take out Bama for sure.

I think anyone who isn't an Alabama fan will be rooting for whatever team ends up playing them in the BCS CG. It would be awesome if they lost to LSU and/or Auburn. Won't get my hopes up though.

UCLA was exposed for the pretender that they are.Someone had to teach them that they weren't ready to play with the big boys - and it might as well have been the Ducks.

Harrier has been an Auburn fan for long before then - and he has never set foot in the South, let alone Alabama.That Iron Bowl is one thing that Alabama seems to be able to promote far and wide, and Harrier made a decision that if he was going to watch the game out here on the west coast that he might as well pick a side.It wasn't the team named after laundry detergent
