My Top 25 (Week 3)



The status quo remains as every team in my top 10 won.  We should find out a lot more about teams this week as there are several intriguing match ups.  Oklahoma travels east to play the Seminoles of Florida State in Tallahassee.  It was no contest last season as the Sooners rolled to a 47-17 victory in Norman.  The Seminoles feel things will be different this time around as they will have the home field advantage over the top ranked Sooners.  Alabama reestablished its national prowess after hammering perennial power Penn State on the road, 27-11.  The Boise State broncos had the week off after beating Georgia in Atlanta two weeks ago.  They will have a tough Friday test as they travel to take on the Toledo Rockets, who gave Ohio State all they could handle in the Horseshoe this past week.  The SEC has a great match up as well.  Mississippi State has a short week home game vs the LSU Tigers on Thursday.  MSU is coming off a heartbreaking 41-34 defeat at Auburn in which they came up inches short of sending the game into overtime.  It was the usual for Andrew Luck and the Stanford Cardinal as they rolled to victory this time at Duke.  Oregon bounced back after their opening week loss to LSU and slaughtered the rebuilding Nevada Wolfpack 69-20 in the Autzen zoo.  Here is my top 25 going into week 3:
