My preliminary rankings

1 Texas (they will beat OU this year)
2 USC (Pac 10 will be tough this year)
3 Florida (I'm a believer)
4 LSU (plays Tennessee next)
5 Georgia (the Cocktail Party in a few weeks will be a good one)
6 Virginia Tech (battle of the Techs a HUGE game)
7 Florida State (vulnerable, but undefeated with two big wins)
8 Georgia Tech (Va Tech is next)
9 Louisville (that was the offense I expected)
10 Ohio State (Iowa this week)
11 Arizona State (the offense is real good)
12 Miami (Clemson game looks like a good one)
13 Tennessee (loaded with talent, play has been unimpressive)
14 Michigan State (ok, maybe, the Spartans are the best team in the Big 10?)
15 Notre Dame (putting these three teams in this order just makes sense)
16 Michigan (bounced back against a terrible team)
17 UCLA (OU win only meant something to clueless pollsters, but still)
18 Purdue (holy crap another big conference game!)
19 Cal (bad Ayoob again, but schedule is kind until UCLA)
20 Minnesota (if they beat Purdue, might be for real)
21 Boston College (another huge ACC matchup with Clemson)
22 Clemson (BC this week)
23 Iowa State (I'm now writing the Big XII North championship in stone)
24 Auburn (don't forget about these Tigers)
25 Iowa (if they beat Ohio State, maybe that just means Iowa State is good?)

I'm dropping Texas Tech for not playing anyone, Virginia for not looking good, Wisconsin because I'm unconvinced, and Alabama for the same reason.  These teams are all undefeated and will rise quickly if they beat anyone good).  Oregon, Washington State, West Virginia, Penn State, Nebraska, New Mexico, Toledo and Vanderbilt are all undefeated and on the cusp, but not deserving of rankings at this point.

This week looks to be filled with monster games that could again shake up the rankings.

Games I watched:  UCLA-Oklahoma, Notre Dame-Michigan State, Florida-Tennessee, Boston College-Florida State, USC-Arkansas, Oregon-Fresno State, Virgina-Syracuse,
