That led to another week of big changes for me. Here's a look at the ballot I turned in for this week:
1. Ohio State (5-0; last week: 1) - The Buckeyes aren't winning by much, but they are winning. I still believe if you put them on the field with any other team in the country, they find a way to win.
2. Michigan State (4-0; LW: 2) - Like their Big Ten rivals, the Spartans aren't winning impressively, but they continue to come out on top each week.
3. LSU (4-0; LW: 7) - Tigers haven't faced a huge test yet, but they've taken care of business each and every week.
4. TCU (5-0; LW: 8) - Horned Frogs crushed Texas, 50-7 last week. I know Texas stinks, but it was nice to see TCU play some defense finally.
5. Utah (4-0; LW: 6) - Utes had a bye, but moved up a spot because of all the losses ahead of them.
6. Baylor (4-0; LW: 10) - I'm still not sold on the Bears as an all-around team, but they did put together their best performance in a 63-35 rout of Texas Tech.
7. Alabama (4-1; LW: 12) - Are the Crimson Tide back? Sure looked like it in a 38-10 blowout of Georgia.
8. Florida State (4-0; LW: 11) - Seminoles weren't impressive in winning at Wake Forest, but did what they had to do to stay unbeaten.
9. Clemson (4-0; LW: 14) - It was tough to tell how good this team was until last week.
10. Southern Cal (3-1; LW: 13) - Trojans were off last week, but moved up because of all the losses from teams in my top 10.
11. Oklahoma (4-0; LW: 15) - Sooners played a great fourth quarter to seal the deal at home in a 44-24 win against West Virginia.
12. Texas A&M (5-0; LW: 16) - Slowly, the Aggies are moving up and beating Mississippi State gave them three quality wins already.
13. Notre Dame (4-1; LW: 9) - Despite a two-point loss at Clemson, I still like this Irish team. They can still be a factor in the title race.
14. Florida (5-0; LW: unranked) - Time to give the Gators their due after they crushed Mississippi. That's back-to-back big SEC wins for Jim McElwain's team.
15. Mississippi (4-1; LW: 3) - Amazing how one game chances so much. Had the Rebels been able to win at The Swamp, they might be sitting at No. 1 this week.
16. Stanford (4-1; LW: 20) - My preseason No. 10 team was a major disappointment in Week 1. In the past month, it's tough to find a team that's playing better.
17. UCLA (4-1; LW: 4) - Very surprised to see the Bruins lay an egg against Arizona State last week. Bruins looked sensational before that.
18. Georgia (4-1; LW: 5) - Mark Richt always has good teams, but never great. Bulldogs coughed up a chance to make a statement by getting waxed at home by Alabama.
19. Boise State (4-1; LW: 18) - Broncos rolled past Hawaii, 55-0. Florida's rise is the only reason I moved them down a spot.
20. Northwestern (5-0; LW: 19) - This is probably the one team I think I'm underestimating. The Wildcats have three pretty good wins already. Despite beating Stanford, I do think Stanford is the better team right now, but Northwestern should have been a couple spots higher on my ballot this week.
21. Oklahoma State (5-0; LW: 22) - I'm still not sure how good this team is, but the Cowboys keep winning.
22. Oregon (3-2; LW: 23) - The only two-loss team in my Top 25, I'm in the minority among AP voters by still having the Ducks ranked. I just have a hard time thinking they won't get going.
23. Michigan (4-1; LW: 25) - Wolverines continue to impress, especially on defense. They've had back-to-back shutouts and have allowed just 14 points in four games since their opening night loss at Utah.
24. California (5-0; LW: unranked) - For a while on Saturday, it appeared the Bears were going to stub their toe, but they found a way to beat Washington State.
25. Iowa (5-0; LW: unranked) - It wasn't a pretty game, but winning 10-6 at Wisconsin was impressive for the Hawkeyes. Not having to face Ohio State or Michigan State this year could help them be a factor in the Big Ten title race.
Wisconsin (3-2; LW: 17) - Badgers are now 0-2 against good teams.
Mississippi State (3-2; LW: 21) - Bulldogs have a solid team, but have yet to beat anyone of note.
West Virginia (3-1; LW: 24) - Mountaineers finally ran into a good team and played poorly down the stretch of a loss at Oklahoma.
