Bama at No. 1 is no surprise, but unanimity still is. Of 119 AP/USAT voters, only ONE rewards Florida or K-State for beating better teams?He does have a point. Kansas State beat Oklahoma, and Florida just demolished an injury-riddled South Carolina team. But both teams have "hmmm" games on their list: Kansas State's six point win over Iowa State, and Florida has a 13 point win over Bowling Green. Alabama has been consistently impressive all season long...so I'm keeping them on top.

West Virginia was exposed as a fraud, so they are out of the rankings. Arizona State usually would have fallen further, but I was struggling for teams to add to the rankings. So they fall just 3 spots. Louisiana Tech probably deserves some recognition for being 6-1, so in they go. I hated to rank Boise State, but couldn't come up with anybody else. Heck, I even considered listing Nebraska here...but held off for one more week.
