  1. Alabama 2-0
  2. Clemson 2-0
  3. Oklahoma 2-0
  4. USC 2-0 - The Trojans solidified their Top 5 ranking. They belong around the Playoff cutoff until proven otherwise.
  5. Penn State 2-0
  6. Michigan 2-0
  7. Oklahoma State 2-0
  8. LSU 2-0
  9. Wisconsin 2-0
  10. Georgia 2-0
  11. Washington 2-0 - The Huskies haven’t shown much, but they will get to prove themselves in Pac-12 play.
  12. Florida State 0-1
  13. Ohio State 1-1
  14. Auburn 1-1
  15. Louisville 2-0
  16. Kansas State 2-0
  17. Virginia Tech 2-0
  18. Miami 1-0
  19. TCU 2-0
  20. Colorado 2-0 - It’s only two games, but the Buffs have given up just six points thus far this season. They should be a Top 25 team again if their defense stays this strong as the season goes on.
  21. Minnesota 2-0
  22. Washington State 2-0- It wasn’t pretty, but the Cougars scored a big non-conference win and are now set in the Pac-12 as they head into conference play. Their defense looks better than it has been in a long, long time.
  23. Stanford 1-1 - Losing at USC by as much as Stanford didn’t isn’t terrible right now, but they are going to have to climb their way back up the rankings. They have another test at San Diego State this week.
  24. South Florida 2-0
  25. Florida 0-1
