My NCAA Football Top 25 – Week 8

RK (LW) School Comment
1 1 Texas Oklahoma State and Texas Tech are up next. Can the Longhorns stay on top?
2 2 Alabama Go Vols!
3 3 Pennsylvania St Penn St faces the Buckeyes this week, which could be make or break for them.
4 6 Oklahoma The Sooners get a relatively easy three game stretch before facing Texas Tech and Oklahoma St in their last two games of the regular season.
5 10 Southern California The Trojans give up only 7.8 points per game and should win every game remaining on their schedule.
6 5 Oklahoma St. The Cowboys still have a lot of doubters, but they’ll get enough chances to prove themselves, with three of their last five games being against Texas, Texas Tech and Oklahoma.
7 4 Texas Tech The Red Raiders are in the same boat as the Cowboys. Everyone thinks they’re just posers, while Texas and Oklahoma are the class of the Big 12 South. It’ll be tough to prove them wrong with this four game stretch: Kansas, Texas, Oklahoma St and Oklahoma.
8 8 Georgia The Bulldogs look to jump back to the top of the polls, and they’ll get the opportunity with LSU and florida next on their schedule.
9 11 florida The gators get Kentucky this week, but then have to Georgia in Jacksonville after that.
10 15 Ohio St. The Buckeyes need to beat Penn St this week if they want to get back on top in the Big Ten.
11 12 Utah Two of the Utes final four games are against TCU and BYU. They need to win all four games to be BCS busters.
12 13 Louisiana St. LSU gets Georgia and Alabama next. It won’t be easy for the defending champs to even get back to the SEC Championship.
13 14 Boise St. The Broncos get San Jose St on Friday night. That will be a tougher game than most are anticipating.
14 9 Missouri Two weeks ago, the Tigers had goals as big as a National Championship. Now it looks like they could struggle to get a Big 12 Championship.
15 25 TCU TCU faces Utah on November 6. That’s the only game of their remaining four that looks like trouble.
16 26 Pittsburgh There’s not a single ranked team left on Pitt’s schedule.
17 17 South Florida The Bulls bounced back from their loss to Pitt, and should be able to win their remaining five games.
18 29 Georgia Tech The Yellow Jackets final five games won’t be easy. Virginia, Florida St, North Carolina, Miami (FL), and Georgia are still left on their plate.
19 23 Tulsa The Golden Hurricane has only scored less than 45 points in one game so far this season, and are averaging a ridiculous 56.6 per game.
20 7 Brigham Young The loss to TCU put any vision of a BCS appearance out of the Cougars mind.
21 21 Ball St. The Cardinals have one of the easiest schedules in the nation. They could go 13-0 and still not make a BCS bowl.
22 NR Boston College The Eagles still have six tough games remaining, and Chris Crane hasn’t impressed me.
23 30 Florida St. Virginia Tech and Georgia Tech are coming up next. Can the Seminole hold on to this spot?
24 18 Kansas I told multiple people during the preseason that Kansas would be lucky to have less than 5 losses this year. With Texas Tech, Texas and Mizzou still left on the schedule, it looks like that will hold true.
25 27 Minnesota The Golden Gophers finished with just one win last season. If they keep this up, they’ll finish with just one loss this season.




Others to note:
26 NR Northwestern
27 16 Virginia Tech
28 NR Oregon
29 24 Vanderbilt
30 NR Kentucky

Be sure to vote for which undefeated teams you think can hold on to make it to a BCS Bowl.
