10-0 1 1/4
The Ducks played late for the East Coast viewers, but they went over the 50-point mark again. That resonates. They move to No. 1 in my poll but face a resurgent Stanford this weekend.

10-0 1 2/23
Don’t think that I didn’t debate hard before placing K-State in the No. 2 slot. They easily could be No. 1. Baylor’s passing game could test them this week.

The Irish just keep winning, and isn’t that the ultimate object each game? Their defense continues to impress, holding Boston College to 57 rushing yards and just six points.

9-1 3 1/4
It was the upset that many saw as a possibility, but few really thought would happen. Texas A&M dictated that there is a new No. 1 in college football this week. But, don’t count the Tide out just yet …

10-0 - 3/16
The Buckeyes had the week off, but now they head to Wisconsin (which clinched a spot in the Big Ten title game) intent on showing the Badgers the “real” Leaders Division champion of the Big Ten.

9-1 - 3/13
The Bulldogs beat down Auburn for the second consecutive year, and clinched the SEC East title, also for the second year in a row. They will be a challenge for Alabama come Dec. 1.

9-1 - 5/15
Did not waste the prime-time showcase on Thursday night, earning a win at Virginia Tech. Should coast into the ACC title game, save the date with Florida to close out the regular season.

9-1 1 8/20
Dabo Swinney quietly has done a terrific job with this program. The Tigers are tracking toward an 11-win season and a possible BCS bowl invite for the second straight year.

9-1 1 3/22
The most unimpressive win of the weekend by a top team, surviving against Louisiana-Lafayette at home. Jacksonville State visits this weekend, and the Gators need an impressive win to tune up for the Florida State showdown.

8-2 1 2/13
Tigers bounced back from the Alabama disappointment and handed Mississippi State its third straight loss. QB Zach Mettenberger is beginning to string together some nice games.

8-2 5 6/23
The Aggies, under first-year coach Kevin Sumlin, rapidly have become the dreaded “team no one wants to play.” Bumping off No. 1 Alabama in Tuscaloosa behind “Johnny Football” Manziel? VERY impressive.

8-2 - 3/16
They destroyed Georgia, but the Bulldogs didn’t lose another game. So they will head to the SEC title game, while the Gamecocks will look back at losses at LSU and Florida and wonder (for the second straight year) what could have been . . .

8-2 2 5/24
Won a tough one at home against Oregon State as coach David Shaw’s QB shift from Josh Nunes to Kevin Hogan paid dividends. To the Pacific Northwest they head to battle Oregon — winner takes control of the Pac-12 North.

7-2 - 6/19
Still a factor in the BCS bowl chase. OU beat Baylor, and heads to West Virginia for a game the Sooners had better be prepared for, as WVU will try to salvage a once-promising season.

7-2 2 6/20
The Beavers were not expected to make much noise this year, but Mike Riley’s crew has lost only twice and still can impact rival Oregon’s big dreams.

8-2 1 14/24
Let’s hear it for Bruins coach Jim Mora, who in one season has brought the pride back to Westwood. The USC game truly means something again, and UCLA controls its fate in the Pac-12 South.

8-2 1 12/24
The Huskers are in the driver’s seat in the Big Ten Legends division. Beat Minnesota and win at Iowa, and they head to Indy to battle defending champ Wisconsin for a trip to the Rose Bowl.

8-2 2 10/20
Honored the memory of former coach Darrell Royal by lining up in the wishbone formation for their first play against Iowa State. Then they mashed the Cyclones. This team is improving.

7-3 2 1/21
Got a much-needed win against Arizona State. The Trojans still can get to the Pac-12 title game and a possible rematch with Oregon, but they have to beat crosstown rival UCLA this week at the Rose Bowl.

9-1 1 19/24
RB Kenneth Dixon broke the NCAA single-season record for rushing TDs by a freshman as the Bulldogs won and moved to 9-1. Huge game this week against a very good Utah State team.

A dandy matchup at Oklahoma State awaits, but this season already has been a tremendous bounce-back year for the Red Raiders after they missed a bowl game last year.

Tough games on the horizon at Bowling Green and then Ohio to conclude the regular season, but don’t even try to tell coach Darrell Hazell’s Golden Flashes that they can be beaten. A very confident bunch, and they’ve earned that right.

Slow start against Army, but the Scarlet Knights got it going and now take dead aim at the Big East crown. But it won’t be easy as they travel to Cincinnati this week, and finish at home against Louisville

A slow, shaky start with three different starting QBs, but the Badgers will get to defend their Big 10 title on Dec. 1. They can’t coast to Indy, however, as Ohio State visits this week, and then they finish at Penn State.
