TCU's blowout of Baylor counts for a rise, so up they go. Florida moves up in response to the demotion of the Sooners and 'Horns. If you went to bed early, you missed Stanford absolutely crush Wake Forest in the really late-night ESPN2 game. Arizona also vaults up by holding on to beat Iowa; that's not the same Arizona team we saw in San Diego. Iowa doesn't drop as far because of the way they fought back against the Wildcats on the road.
I dropped USC and Wisconsin because I frankly wasn't impressed with either team. Arizona State hasn't played anybody else yet, and lost due to a blocked extra point. Southern Cal muddled through with Minnesota much like they muddled through with Hawai'i in the season opener...a team that lost to Colorado on Saturday. I'm keeping Virginia Tech in the Top 25 for now; I still believe last week was a fluke.
Big XII PowerPoll

- Oklahoma State
- Texas A&M
