Overall Rationale:

Rank Team Reason
1 Alabama Crimson Tide Alabama is undefeated with good wins over Texas A&M and Georgia.
2 Notre Dame Fighting Irish ND its undefeated with their best win over Clemson. 
3 Cincinnati Bearcats Cincinnati remains undefeated. Best wins are Army(6-2) and SMU (7-2)
4 BYU Cougars BYU remains undefeated. Best win is Boise. 
5 Clemson Tigers Clemson only has 1 loss (Notre Dame). Best win is over Miami. 
6 Texas A&M Aggies Aggies only loss is to Alabama. Best win is over Florida. Debated putting them over Clemson but I held off as Clemson's loss was in 2OT and the Aggies got stomped. 
7 Florida Gators Florida's only loss is to Texas A&M. They have an impressive blowout win over Georgia
8 Coastal Carolina Chanticleers Remain undefeated Best win is Louisiana (7-1)
9 Northwestern Wildcats Northwestern moves to 4-0. Got a nice win over Purdue (previously 2-0). 
10 Ohio State Buckeyes Buckeyes sat idle this week. They're probably one of the top teams in the country but they haven't played anyone. They are scheduled to face Indiana this week and that could move them up. 
11 Indiana Hoosiers Hoosiers are still undefeated. Wins that we thought were impressive are losing luster, though. Penn State is 0-4. Michigan is 1-3. Michigan State is 1-3. Rutgers is 1-3. A win over Ohio State this week would bump them up to a top 4 spot in my poll. 
12 Miami Hurricanes Gutty win this weekend over Virginia Tech with a large portion of the team sidelined. Moves the Hurricanes to 7-1 with only loss being to Clemson. 
13 Wisconsin Badgers Wisconsin is 2-0. Destroyed 2 bad teams. 
14 Oregon Ducks Oregon is 2-0. Best win is Washington State. 
15 Liberty Flames Remain undefeated. Best win is Virginia Tech. 
16 Marshall Thundering Herd 7-0. Best win is Appalachian State. 
17 Oklahoma State Cowboys Oklahoma State is 5-1. Only loss is to Texas. Good wins over Iowa State and Tulsa. They play Oklahoma this week and could cement spot on top of big 12. 
18 Colorado Buffaloes They were killing Stanford early. Not sure what to make of these guys really. 2-0 for now though. 
19 San José State Spartans 4-0. Best win is San Diego State (3-1)
20 USC Trojans Remained 2-0 after another sloppy win. Wins are wins, though. 
21 Georgia Bulldogs Top 2 loss teams. Best win is Auburn. Losses to alabama and florida. 
22 Tulsa Golden Hurricane Picked up a nice win over SMU (7-2) this weekend. Only loss is to Oklahoma State. 
23 Nevada Wolf Pack 4-0. lacking quality wins. 
24 Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns Only loss is to coastal Carolina. Have a nice win over Iowa State
25 Washington Huskies Started off the year with a win.
