Ballot Type: human

Overall Rationale:

Rank Team Reason
1 Georgia Bulldogs ...
2 Cincinnati Bearcats 48-14 over SMU. Desmond Ridder had 3 pass TDs, 1 rush TD, and 1 receiving TD
3 Notre Dame Fighting Irish 55-0 over Georgia Tech. This was the most complete game they have had all season
4 Oklahoma State Cowboys 23-0 over Texas Tech. It was the first shutout Oklahoma State has pitched in a while. They face Oklahoma this coming weekend
5 Oklahoma Sooners Oklahoma beat Iowa State and play Oklahoma State next, possibly two times in a row
6 Michigan Wolverines 59-18 over Maryland. High expectations going into next week...
7 Ohio State Buckeyes 49-0 at the half. Michigan State's secondary couldn't stop the pass at all
8 Alabama Crimson Tide Alabama's offense looked as good as ever, but their defense leaves a lot to be desired. Arkansas were in it until the final seconds
9 Houston Cougars Houston came out strong against Memphis and have a strong chance to derail Cincinnati's season and possibly get an NY6 bowl bid
10 Baylor Bears Baylor beat Kansas State 20-10 and keep their conference hopes alive. If they beat Texas Tech and Oklahoma State beats Oklahoma, they should be in the conference championship
11 BYU Cougars They got the W over Georgia Southern to be 9-2. USC is the last game on their schedule
12 Ole Miss Rebels Not a satisfying final score against Vanderbilt, but still a W
13 UTSA Roadrunners Meep. They beat UAB on a game winning drive with three seconds on the clock
14 Pittsburgh Panthers Pittsburgh clinched their division with a 10-point win over Virginia. They play Syracuse before traveling to Charlotte for the ACC Championship
15 Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns Liberty was favored in the game, but the Ragin' Cajuns went up 21-0 to start the game and finished it 42-14
16 Wisconsin Badgers Wisconsin continued tradition of Nebraska losing by 7 points or less woith a 35-28 final score. If they beat Minnesota next week, they're in the Big 10 championship
17 Utah Utes 38-7 over Oregon? Wow
18 Texas A&M Aggies TAMU had their November SEC cupcake game against Prairie View. LSU is last on their regular season schedule
19 Iowa Hawkeyes 33-23 over Illinois. They have to beat Nebraska next weekend and have Wisconsin lose to be in the conference championship
20 Oregon Ducks Oregon didn't just lose to Oregon, they were never really in the game. 38-7 ending. They likely replay each other in the Pac 12 championship unless Oregon loses next week
21 Appalachian State Mountaineers App State won 45-7 over Troy to clinch their division. The Sunbelt Championship will be a rematch at Louisiana
22 Clemson Tigers Clemson are back among the ranked after beating #13 Wake Forest 48-27. They keep their long home winning streak alive.
23 Wake Forest Demon Deacons Wake Forest played at Clemson and laid an egg. They need to beat Boston College next weekend to get to the ACC Championship against Pitt
24 Michigan State Spartans Michigan State's last ranked pass defense couldn't keep up against Ohio State's elite offense. 49-0 at the half... ouch. They can still have a 10 win regular season if they beat Penn State this weekend
25 San Diego State Aztecs SDSU struggled against UNLV. Not a great look, but a win is a win!
