Most of UNC-Rutgers, Kansas-USF, Michigan State-FAU, Iowa-Iowa State, portions of Maryland-Cal, Northwestern-SIU, Michigan-Notre Dame, Most of PSU-Syracuse, portions of UGa-SoCar, Much of Auburn-Miss St, OSU-USC, Most of Oklahoma-Washington, Wisconsin-Fresno St.

I actually have a couple more games on DVR that I'll watch before submitting my final ballot. I didn't thoroughly look at last week's final ballot when I put this together, so there might be a few inconsistencies I have to correct.

    Ohio State doesn't even deserve to be ranked. They played like crap and should be punished accordingly. Tressel and the Buckeyes have shown that they cannot compete on the national level. How many more times do they need to be ranked in the Top 10 and lose before everyone realizes they shouldn't even be ranked?

    East Carolina +5 for squeaking by Tulane? I guess there's just a lot of question marks out there on all but the top 5-6 teams.

    florida doesn't play and they move from 4th to 2nd? Oklahoma wins big on the road and they fall? This doesn't make sense.

    USC would blow out most teams 10 and beyond. Just because we saw it happen to them without their best player doesn't mean East Carolina is suddenly better than the Buckeyes.

    Not a bad job here. I agree ECU takes a tumble though. BYU deserves to be higher. Washington was a bad game for them, but the whipping they put on UCLA merits them ahead of ECU, just looking to keep a BCS buster in place. They look to be the most deserving. USC cleary 1, and then start pulling from a hat. Mine looks like USC, OK, GA., and then Florida. Yes S. Carolina may not be great, but previous years against UGA, they always play them tough, and a conference road win is a win. But this will start to quicky shake out.

    Oh, and OSU does deserve more of a hit than that. Beanie or not, they got hammered. Another 4-5 spots for me.
