  1. Alabama 3-0
  2. Ohio State 3-0
  3. Clemson 3-0
  4. Georgia 3-0
  5. LSU 3-0
  6. Oklahoma 3-0
  7. Penn State 3-0
  8. Stanford 3-0 - The Cardinal have impressed so far and have the chance to put together one of the best first four weeks of any team if they can win at Oregon Saturday. How healthy or not Bryce Love will likely determine the rest of their season though.
  9. Auburn 2-1
  10. Washington 2-1 - Washington’s defense is legit. Possibly the best in the country, but their offense needs a lot of work. They got past a major early-season test at Utah and look like a team that has the ability to maybe run the table in the Pac-12 if things go right.
  11. Notre Dame 3-0
  12. West Virginia 2-0
  13. Virginia Tech 2-0
  14. UCF 2-0
  15. Oklahoma State 3-0
  16. Mississippi State 3-0
  17. TCU 2-1
  18. Michigan 2-1
  19. Oregon 3-0 - The time has arrived for the Ducks to prove it with Stanford coming to town on Saturday night. They’ve looked impressive thus far, but against terrible competition.
  20. Miami 2-1
  21. Texas A&M 2-1
  22. Iowa 3-0
  23. Cal 3-0 - Cal’s win at BYU looks really good right now. They’re riding high heading into Pac-12 play.
  24. BYU 2-1
  25. Wisconsin 2-1
