- Boise State
- The top eight weren’t too hard to come up with, but the last two, yecch.
- The ACC bites so far this year and Georgia Tech’s schedule has been very soft, which explains the Jackets’ absence.
- The Big Ten hasn’t been much to write home about either. But Wisconsin’s been impressive pounding cupcakes and Illinois got the nod for beating Arizona State.
- Oklahoma State isn’t here because I can’t bring myself to include a team ranked 103rd in total defense on a top ten list. Kansas State gets similar treatment for being ranked 97th in total offense.
- West Virginia? The ‘Eers are scoring points in bunches, but a 26-point home loss to LSU and a close call against Maryland leave me leery for now.
