Ballot Type: human

Overall Rationale:
I run a computer poll then manually make adjustments, I could post those results too, but this really is kinda cut and dry who the top four are this year so I'm being lazy. I'm also going to be including every conference winner and 10 win team like I have in this week's poll the last few years as a sort of shout out to congratulate them.

Rank Team Reason
1 Ohio State Buckeyes B1G Champ.Been number one in my computer poll all year long basically, better OOC than LSU with each also having a handful of ranked wins in conference. Allowing bias this poll because I think the SEC is way, way more top heavy than the B1G.
2 LSU Tigers SEC Champ. Although I wouldn't really argue against them being #1. Either way the Clemson giant has to be beaten to win so gotta do it at some point.
3 Clemson Tigers ACC Champ. Murdered UVA, and not VT so I'm ok with losing the Cup after 15 years lol. Wouldn't surprise me at all to see them beat OSU/LSU/OU by 20+ we just don't really know how good they are because of how terrible the ACC is.
4 Oklahoma Sooners Big 12 Champ. Got it done against what is still a good Baylor team. Most likely going to be destroyed in round one.
5 Memphis Tigers AAC Champ. Here's where I will still advocate for the G5, had Memphis beaten Temple and been undefeated I'd have them #4 over OU just like I did for UCF the last two years.
6 Oregon Ducks Pac-12 Champ. They are who we thought they were, or at least who they have the potential to be.
7 Baylor Bears Big 12 runner up. I guess if OU wins it all, they'd have an actual argument for being the second best team in the country. Rhule still deserves coach of the year despite playing for OT rather than going for the win when having the ball and two timeouts with 1 minute left.
8 Wisconsin Badgers B1G runner up. Really impressed and shocked everyone in the first half. Then OSU actually showed up in the second half and looked like they were really just toying with Wisconsin. The Badgers should get the Rose Bowl IMO.
9 Boise State Broncos MWC Champ. Should be getting the Orange Bowl bid over the shitty ass ACC. 
10 Utah Utes Pac-12 runner up. Anyone who actually knows the Pac-12 should've known they wouldn't actually win. And especially any Ute fan that was confident in a win. It's the Pac-12 duh.
11 Georgia Bulldogs SEC runner up. Got destroyed because they aren't that good, but still have a respectable set of wins. Loss to a 4-8 South Carolina has to matter though.
12 Minnesota Golden Gophers 10 win season. Ahead of PSU for H2H.
13 Penn State Nittany Lions 10 win season. Ahead of Michigan for H2H.
14 Michigan Wolverines 9-3, but ahead of ND because of H2H.
15 Notre Dame Fighting Irish 10 win season. 
16 Florida Gators 10 win season. Way lower than most have them because they have quality losses, and a win over Auburn. I still think they're great, but not top 10. FOH.
17 Appalachian State Mountaineers SunBelt champ. Also, just good.
18 Alabama Crimson Tide 10 win season.
19 Air Force Falcons 10 win season.
20 FAU Owls CUSA Champ.
21 Navy Midshipmen 9-2 with a rivalry game still to play, but assuming they'll win to secure a 10 win season.
22 SMU Mustangs 10 win season.
23 Cincinnati Bearcats 10 win season, AAC runner up.
24 Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns 10 win season, SunBelt runner up.
25 Miami (OH) RedHawks MAC Champs
