1 Texas Christian 6-0

OK, hear me out: On the eye test, it's still 'Bama ... but the résumé clearly goes to TCU. Other than a reeling Florida State, the Tide haven't beaten anyone.

2 Georgia 7-0

And the Dawgs have a win over Notre Dame that's better than anything Saban's squad has done.

3 Alabama 7-0

They're probably the best team, but they haven't proven it yet.

4 Miami, Florida 5-0

No one's talking about them, but they keep winning.

5 Penn State 6-0

If they get through their next three games, I'll move them to number one.

6 Wisconsin 6-0

And they'll likely be waiting for PSU in the Big Ten title game.

7 Oklahoma 5-1

Beating Texas is starting to look like an achievement again.

8 Clemson 6-1


9 Virginia Tech 5-1

ACC is loaded for bear.

10 Southern California 6-1

Notre Dame vs. the Trojans is loser out, winner (if they run the table) in.

11 Ohio State 6-1

Control their own destiny again after the Clemson loss.

12 Notre Dame 5-1

And if they run the table, they're number two behind an unbeaten SEC king or TCU.

13 Oklahoma State 5-1

Bedlam is now also loser out.

14 Central Florida 5-0

Could they get into the playoff if enough Power Five teams have two losses? It's barely possible.

15 Washington State 6-1

Apple Cup ...

16 Washington 6-1

... has now rotted a bit.

17 Michigan State 5-1

Oh, yeah. Michigan State is done. Whatever.

18 North Carolina State 6-1

They're actually the ACC front-runner now.

19 South Florida 6-0

Wow. They really don't play anybody. It's a shame.

20 San Diego State 6-1

And the playoff dream dies.

21 Michigan 5-1

Imagine if they had an offense.

22 Virginia 5-1

Bronco Mendenhall is doing good things in Charlottesville.

23 Iowa State 4-2

The best win in program history last week, and they didn't follow it up with a loss!

24 Stanford 5-2

They look a lot better, but they have to be ranked behind San Diego State, or the polls are a sham.

25 Kentucky 5-1

This could just as easily be LSU, or Auburn, or South Carolina, or Texas A&M. As a matter of fact, just assume it is.

Knights Watch:

Rutgers showed signs of life yesterday, defeating the even more hapless Illinois Fighting Illini (which loosely translated from the Italian could be interpreted as "many little ill ones") 35-24. If they beat (or even give a spirited effort against) a much improved Purdue this week, I'll begin to have some hope for the future.

If you're one of those bitter US soccer fans that refuses to root for Mexico ... grow the Hell up.
