The Eleven Warriors ballot has been submitted and there was a nice shake-up this week with Florida's loss.

Feel free to let us know what you think in the comments.


1 Alabama Crimson Tide Alabama rolled Mississippi State in what was supposed to be a good SEC matchup. Obviously Alabama is the best team in the country. --
2 Oregon Ducks Oregon put up 70 points effortlessly against Colorado and travels to USC this coming Saturday in what many were hoping to be a top-10 matchup. It will still be a great game in L.A. --
3 Kansas State Wildcats Kansas State is definitely the real deal. They beat Texas Tech, 55-24, and welcome a surging Oklahoma State to Manhattan, KS. UP1
4 Notre Dame Fighting Irish Notre Dame is also the real deal and could be playing for the BCS title if they keep on winning. They straight up dominated Oklahoma in Norman in primetime. The play Pitt this weekend. UP2
5 LSU Tigers They haven't been pretty, but LSU keeps winning big SEC games. Another showdown against Alabama this weekend will definitely be one of the most watched games of the year, but hopefully it's better than a 6-3 final. --
6 Ohio State Buckeyes The Buckeyes keep winning and move to 9-0. Braxton Miller was back and scored two highlight reel touchdowns on the ground that silenced the Beaver Stadium crowd. The Buckeyes welcome Illinois before finishing the year at Wisconsin and Michigan at home. UP1
7 Georgia Bulldogs No Urban Meyer on the opposing sideline = easier time for Mark Richt. Georgia took down the undefeated Gators, 17-9. UP5
8 Florida Gators Florida's SEC roll hit a halting stop against Georgia in Jacksonville. UF plays Missouri, then a few cupcakes, before finishing the year against FSU. Florida has to rely on a Georgia loss to make the SEC title game. DOWN 5
9 Florida State Seminoles Florida State beat a decent Duke team, 48-7. Enough said. UP2
10 South Carolina Gamecocks South Carolina lost their best player in RB Marcus Lattimore with a gruesome knee injury, but rallied to beat Tennessee. UP6
11 Clemson Tigers Clemson keeps winning, beating Wake, 42-13, earlier in the week. UP3
12 Oklahoma Sooners Oklahoma had a difficult time at home against Notre Dame, but still has a shot to win the Big 12. DOWN 3
13 Louisville Cardinals Louisville won an entertaining game against Cincinnati in overtime. Cincy QB Munchie Legeaux had a difficult time in extra time. Louisville is primed to win the conference.  UP8
14 Oregon State Beavers Oregon State showed that they are perhaps not elite, losing to Washington. DOWN 6
15 Mississippi State Bulldogs Alabama was here. That is all. DOWN 2
16 Stanford Cardinal Stanford doesn't blow out inferior opponents, but gets it done. They're looking to finish near the top of the Pac-12, but that may be a best-case scenario. UP2
17 Texas A&M Aggies A&M ran over Auburn, 63-21, and travels to #15 Mississippi State this coming Saturday. UP5
18 Boise State Broncos Boise State could, once again, sneak into a BCS spot if they win out. They're 7-1 with a week one loss at Michigan State. UP1
19 Nebraska Cornhuskers Nebraska is probably the second-best team in the Big Ten, but the best eligible team. They are in the driver's seat to win the Legends division and play for the Big Ten title. --
20 Southern Cal Trojans SC put up some nice stats, but not nice enough. Arizona was able to come away with the W. DOWN 10
21 Texas Tech Red Raiders Texas Tech battled early with K-State before getting blown out by a superior team. DOWN 6
22 Louisiana Tech Bulldogs Tech has only lost that one crazy 1am game to Texas A&M and clearly deserves to be ranked in the top-25. UP2
23 Arizona Wildcats Bear Down on SC. Arizona looked good late to top the Trojans. --
24 Toledo Rockets Toledo could be the best team in the MAC, which is a very strong conference this year. The Rockets beat Cincy last week and are 8-1 overall. --
25 UCLA Bruins Besides losing to Cal, UCLA has looked pretty good and good enough to make the top-25. The Bruins topped ASU in a high scoring thriller, 45-43. --
Dropouts: Rutgers Scarlet Knights, Michigan Wolverines, Ohio Bobcats, Penn St. Nittany Lions
