The top five in our ballot went unchanged after a wild weekend of football. You could even pretty much make the argument that these five have separated themselves from the rest of the pack, but there's still a lot of ball to be played.
Texas took a tumble due to their narrow escape from Central Florida while Wisconsin gets dinged for their Citadel performance. They get a stunned Iowa team this week, so they should continue to pile up victories, but this team remains hard to read.
Newcomers include Boston College (#15), Clemson (#18), Kentucky (#24) and Cincinnati (#25).
As always, you can check the ballots of every voter and the final version is due Wednesday morning, so get your thoughts in by Tuesday night if you think we got it wrong.
