1) Alabama
2) Oregon
3) Clemson
4) Ohio State
5) Stanford
6) South Carolina
7) Georgia
8) Texas A&M
9) Louisville
10) LSU
11) Florida State
12) Florida
13) Texas
14) Oklahoma State
15) Notre Dame
16) Michigan
17) Oklahoma
18) UCLA
19) TCU
20) Northwestern
21) Nebraska
22) Wisconsin
23) USC
24) Baylor
25) Miami FL
I moved Clemson all the way up to #3 due to their big win over Georgia. I thought they looked like one of the top teams in the country and rewarded their big home win.  I didn’t drop Georgia, however, because I thought there should be no penalty to losing in that environment against that talented of a team.  Otherwise, I went mostly chalk with 6 SEC schools in my top 12.  I also snuck Miami into the top 25 after Duke Johnson’s impressive showing against Florida Atlantic.
