Well I was one of 16 voters to call Florida the number one team in the nation but overall Oregon and Bama love over rides the quiet rumblings of your Humble Buffalo blogger.
At the Top
Florida is now a solid number two and Alabama should be seen as vulnerable. I suspect Kansas State, Florida, and Oregon all have a chance to hold the number one spot if they win out, regardless of what Alabama does.
Notre Dame's Big Audition.
Notre Dame (#5 Blog Poll, #6 Bull Run) will take on Oklahoma (#8 Blog Poll, #9 Bull Run).
This is probably the Best chance the Irish will have to make their claim for one of those top two spots if they win out the season.
The Irish defense will give Notre Dame a chance but can that offense produce enough fire power for poll voters to use it as an exclamation point on their season.
I had Ohio, NIU, and Toledo ranked. The huddled masses of Bloggers have only Ohio.
Toledo is #28 in the poll and NIU is at Number 30..
Kent is checking in at 45 and even Ball State is getting a little love at #48 (One vote from the chaps over at One Bronco Nation Under God)
