For the first time all season, there are different teams in the No. 1 and No. 2 spots in my BlogPoll Top 25. Alabama's loss to Texas A&M will surely shake up everyone's ballots for this week. For me, they only drop to No. 4 behind the other three undefeated teams.
Even with Toledo's loss to Ball State on Tuesday night, I decided to keep the Rockets in there at No. 24. You may ask yourself why I didn't extend Ohio the same courtesy after its first loss. I just think Toledo's better, that's all. Both Northern Illinois and Kent State move up as well.
- Welcome back into my BlogPoll Top 25, Texas. We've had some back-and-forth about your inclusion, but for the time being you've earned a spot. Can the Longhorns play spoiler to Kansas State's national title bid?
- It's possible I have Georgia rated lower than everyone else. I stand by it. I haven't forgot about the thumping South Carolina handed you, Bulldogs.
- Louisville, Oregon State and Toledo all remain in my top 25, so congratulations. I already had Louisville rated relatively low at No. 16 heading into last week's game, so their fall is not as precipitous.
