Some Thoughts

1. Alabama –

2. Florida –
Why the Gators were playing Citadel at this point of the season I have no idea.

3. Texas –
Despite what they may think the Longhorns are not in control of their own destiny.

4. Oklahoma –
No one in the Big 12 is playing better football than the Sooners right now but they are still behind the Longhorns, for now.

5. Utah –
The Utes are BCS Bound!

6. USC –

7. Boise State –
The Broncos are still undefeated but this team is not as good as the 2006 team.

8. Penn State –
The Nittany Lions routed Michigan State to clinch the Big 10 title.

Texas Tech – The Red Raiders walked into an ambush in Norman but I believe that they are still the third best team in the Big 12.

10. Oklahoma State –

11. Georgia –

12. Ohio State –
Five in a row!

13. Ball State –
A seven point win at Central Michigan has the Cardinals one step away from a perfect regular season.

14. Missouri –

15. TCU –
The Frogs finished off their season as a 44-10 win over Air Force.

16. Cincinnati –
Barring a miracle upset by Syracuse the Bearcats are the 2008 Big East Champions.

17. Oregon State –
Only in-state rival Oregon stands in the Beavers’ way of the Rose Bowl.

18. BYU –
The Cougars didn’t put up much of a fight and became the final victim of Utah.

19. Michigan State –
The Spartans suffered a bad loss but at least it was at the hands of the Big 10 champions.

20. Georgia Tech –
The Yellow Jackets are the only ACC team to be locked in to the conference championship game at this point.

21. Boston College –
The Eagles are on a three game winning streak and currently own the tie breaker over Florida State with Maryland waiting next.

22. Florida State –
Saturday’s 37-3 win over Maryland may have been the Seminoles most impressive of the year.

23. Mississippi –
Houston Nutt gets my vote for coach of the year!

24. Northwestern –
The Wildcats ended the season with consecutive wins over Michigan and Illinois.

25. Nebraska –
