Let’s cut the crap this week and just dive head first into the rankings.

1. Oregon Ducks (6-0, 3-0 Pac-10) - After all of their injuries last week, they got a much-needed bye to tend to their wounded. (Previous Week: 1)
2. Boise State Broncos (6-0, 2-0 WAC) - They have outscored their last three opponents 164-14. (Previous Week: 2)
3. TCU Horned Frogs (7-0, 3-0 Mountain West) - They stumbled a little against BYU, but it’s better than losing. (Previous Week: 4)
4. Auburn Tigers (7-0, 4-0 SEC) - They look like a Pac-10 team. But with a shit defense, how long will they hold up in the SEC? (Previous Week: 7)
5. Alabama Crimson Tide (6-1, 3-1 SEC) - They didn’t look good against Ole Miss, but name me another ranked team that looked great. (Previous Week: 6)
6. Stanford Cardinal (5-1, 2-1 Pac-10) - The Cardinal rest for their marquee matchup against Washington State. (Previous Week: 8)
7. LSU Tigers (7-0, 4-0 SEC) - It’s hard to get worked up over a close win over McNeese State. (Previous Week: 9)
8. Oklahoma Sooners (6-0, 2-0 Big 12) - So after two weeks to prepare for their 52-0 rout of Iowa State, they’ll really get a test perhaps when they visit Mizzou. (Previous Week: 10)
9. Utah Utes (6-0, 3-0 Mountain West) - The Utes continue to dominate in their final season in the conference. In three weeks they host TCU. (Previous Week: 11)
10. Iowa Hawkeyes (5-1, 2-0 Big Ten) - The Hawkeyes didn’t prepare for Tate Forcier, but they held on as Michigan scored 21 in the fourth quarter. (Previous Week: 12)
11. Michigan State Spartans (7-0, 3-0 Big Ten) - They weren’t quite as bothered by Illinois as Ohio State was. (Previous Week: 13)
12. Nebraska Corn Huskers (5-1, 1-1 Big 12) - I thought they were supposed to be good on offense. As with most of the Big 12 they are imposters. (Previous Week: 5)
13. Arizona Wildcats (5-1, 2-1 Pac-10) - What is it about playing Washington State and getting injured? Arizona lost their quarterback Nick Foles, but fortunately the Cougars are the Cougars. (Previous Week: 16)
14. Wisconsin Badgers (6-1, 2-1 Big Ten) - That was a very impressive win against Ohio State, but are they multidimensional enough to beat another good team? (Previous Week: NR)
15. Ohio State Buckeyes (6-1, 2-1 Big Ten) - Terrelle Pryor looked absolutely lost against Wisconsin at times. (Previous Week: 3)
16. Florida State Seminoles (6-1, 4-0 ACC) - I really didn’t want to put in an ACC team here, but who else am I going to put in here? Texas? USC? (Previous Week: NR)

Dropped: South Carolina (14), Arkansas (15).
