0 Shaee's College Football Top 25

By Shaee Flatt

After two weeks of college football, my top 25 is still a mess. Not as many changes this week, but still some good movement. Maybe this time around, I can avoid upsets that mess everything up. Unless that upset is Oregon losing. In that case, I’d be very happy to do some major rearranging next week as well.

1. Alabama (1) – The Tide were off last week and in their only game they didn’t look overly impressive. However, they’ve had two weeks to prepare for A&M, and I fully expect them to get a huge road win. 34-24 Tide.
2. Oregon (2) – Oregon destroyed Virginia last week, 59-10. Their offense is lethal once again, and their defense is no joke either. Oregon gets a visit from Tennessee this week in what will be a better measuring stick for both teams than their first two games were.

3. Georgia (3) – As I expected they would, Georgia got a nice win over South Carolina last week. Despite their week one loss, they’re still right where they want to be in National Championship contention.

4. Clemson (4) – Clemson is 2-0 and owns the most impressive victory of the college football season so far.

5. LSU (6) – LSU destroyed UAB last week, and they’ll destroy Kent State this week. I’m intrigued to see how they look in two weeks when they visit Athens.

6. Florida State (7) – The Noles get Nevada this week. Another chance for Jameis Winston to electrify his spectators, and he will.

7. South Carolina (5) – South Carolina lost a tough road game to a tough team. Still a really good football team.

8. Stanford (8) – Not sure about Stanford quite yet. Didn’t look overly impressive against San Jose State, but they managed to win by three touchdowns. Another easy win this week, as they travel to Army.

9. Ohio State (10) – Still waiting to see a team that’s as good as Alabama to show up when I watch Ohio State play. So far, not close.

10. Texas A&M (11) – Another team that’s overhyped in my eyes. They have a big chance to prove me wrong this week, though. Good luck, Johnny.

11. Miami (15) – I had the Canes at 15 last week, when most everyone had them unranked. Knew they had a great chance of beating the Gators, and they did. Big win for Miami at home.

12. Oklahoma (13) – Sooners didn’t look overly dominant against West Virginia, but they won. Oh, and they didn’t allow 550 rushing yards, either. Hook em, right?

13. Michigan (17) – I was actually pretty impressed with Michigan against Notre Dame. Don’t think the Irish are that great, just as they weren’t last season, but Michigan looked pretty good.

14. Washington (15) – I’m half expecting Washington to let me down for ranking them so high, but we’ll see. The only time they’ve taken the field thus far, they looked dominant.

15. UCLA (19) – UCLA has been one of my big sleeper teams all year, and I think they get their first big win this weekend in Lincoln.

16. Florida (9) – The Gators take a nice fall this week. Not necessarily because they lost, but just because of how awful their offense looked while losing. Their defense is great, but you have to score to win. It's only going to get harder for Florida.

17. Baylor (22) – The more of Baylor I watch, the more I like them. And man, Lache Seastrunk is fun to watch. I’ll say it again, don’t be shocked if Baylor takes the Big 12.

18. Oklahoma State (16) – To most, they are the Big 12 favorite. To me, Oklahoma and Baylor have looked a little bit better.

19. Ole Miss (21) – Excited to see the Rebels against Texas this week. Not sure how they are possibly 3 point dogs to the Longhorns. If last week is any indication, sounds like really easy money. I say Ole Miss wins by at least two touchdowns.

20. Louisville (20) – If “number 7” Louisville is as good as everyone thinks they are, they’ll beat Kentucky by 30. I’ll wait.
21. Michigan State (24) – I like Michigan State’s defense. Their offense has some work to do. Next week in South Bend should be a better measuring stick for where they are.

22. Notre Dame (18) – Like South Carolina, Notre Dame lost to a better team. At least we won’t have to wonder if they will lose by 100 in the National Championship again.

23. TCU (25) – Still think TCU could be a factor in the wide open Big 12.

24. Nebraska (NR) – Nebraska gets a visit from UCLA this week. They’ve looked pretty good thus far, but we’ll see if they can handle a UCLA team on the rise.

25. Wisconsin (NR) – Through two games, Wisconsin hasn’t allowed a point this season. I really had no choice here.
