1 Ohio State - Right now the Buckeyes seem to be the most complete team in college football. Offensively, defensively, special teams and coaching are all top 5 right now. The Buckeyes should get a test this week as an angry Wisconsin team looks to rebound from an embarrassing Illinois loss.
2 LSU - The Tigers get my #2 spot because so far they have proven the most of any SEC Team. With top 10 wins over Texas on the road and Florida at home they have answered every challenge. This week Joe Burrow will look to create even greater distance in the Heisman race with Auburn coming to town.
3 Alabama - The Crimson Tide continue to dominate their opponents but they lost QB Tua Tagovailoa to a high ankle sprain this past week vs Tennessee. The Vols were hanging on with Bama before a huge defensive touchdown turned the momentum. Losing Tua shouldn't hurt vs Arkansas this week but come LSU on November 9th if they don't have him 100% you gotta think Bama is the underdogs for the first time in a decade.
4 Oklahoma - Jalen Hurts continues to shred defenses as the Sooners scored over 50 points in a rout of West Virginia on Saturday. The Sooners WRs don't get a lot of credit but my God they do a great job of getting separation from the defenders and making tough catches over the middle. This week they gotta go to Kansas State for a 11am kickoff. Upset brewing? After Wisconsin lost to Illinois don't be surprised.
5 Clemson - I still don't know what to make of Trevor Lawrence this season. He had some terrible throws vs Louisville but thanks to his wideouts and his defense they saved his ass. Clemson's defense is almost next level special right now with LB Isaiah Simmons all over the field.
6 Notre Dame - The Irish had a BYE week after beating USC two weeks ago. This week they face their other arch rival with a trip to Michigan. If Notre Dame wins they should cruise to an 11-1 season with a good shot of returning to the playoffs.
7 Penn State - The Nittany Lions remained undefeated with a hard fought victory over Michigan in the annual White Out game. The game should have at least gone to overtime but Michigan's WR Ronnie Bell inexplicable dropped the ball in the endzone on 4th down. This week Penn State travels to East Lansing to take on Sparty.
8 Georgia - The Dawgs shut out Kentucky 21-0 in a rain soaked, half attended bore fest in Athens Saturday night. De'Andre Swift was his normal awesome self with 179 yards rushing. The Dawgs will look to get their offense rolling in two weeks vs Florida with an off week this week to prepare.
9 Florida - The Gators got the benefit of the doubt on some rather erroneous officiating calls vs the Cocks to win 38-27 in a game they should have probably lost. They get an off week to prepare for UGA in Jacksonville. Whoever wins the game will probably be in Atlanta to get thumped by the SEC West champ.
10 Oregon - I'll be honest I don't feel great about putting Oregon over Auburn here since technically the Tigers already beat the Ducks. But it just feels like Oregon continues to get better while Auburn has hit their peak early on and fading to the 3-5 losses we all saw before the season kicked off.
