Nov. 13 FBS top 25


Here's our stab at a Football Bowl Subdivision top 25.


1. Alabama (10-0) — Tua seems well enough to play after another injury scare.

2. Clemson (10-0) — Hard not to see this team in the College Football Playoff.

3. Notre Dame (10-0) — Syracuse game looks much tougher than it did a few months ago.

4. Michigan (9-1) — Says something that it is that much of a shock when teams find the end zone against this team.

5. Georgia (9-1) — Leaps Oklahoma because Bulldogs have a pulse on defense.

6. Oklahoma (9-1) — See above.

7. West Virginia (8-1) — Tough test upcoming in Stillwater.

8. LSU (8-2) — Had to be some angry gamblers in Baton Rouge Saturday night.

9. Central Florida (9-0) — That Pittsburgh win starting to pay dividends.

10. Ohio State (9-1) — Maryland should be a mere blip before Michigan.

11. Washington State (9-1) — Mike Leach never disappoints in the personality department.

12. Syracuse (8-2) — Can break up Notre Dame's playoff party this week.

13. Penn State (7-3) — Nice win over a disappointing Wisconsin team.

14. Florida (7-3) — Will always relish a win over Will Muschamp's Gamecocks.

15. Texas (7-3) — Nothing comes easy for these Longhorns.

16. Utah State (9-1) — Won't be easy to close out these last two regular season wins on the road.

17. Washington (7-3) — Who else is already looking forward to the Apple Cup?

18. Kentucky (7-3) — Stumbling down the stretch.

19. Boston College (7-3) — Eagles still have a lot to play for.

20. Boise State (8-2) — Broncos never an easy out, as they showed yet again.

21. Iowa State (6-3) — Matt Campbell's name will come up not just in college openings, but NFL ones, too.

22. Cincinnati (9-1) — Gets the 1-2 punch of South Florida and Central Florida next.

23. Utah (7-3) — Might be the best in a jumbled Pac-12 South.

24. Northwestern (6-4) — Wildcats the class of a weak division.

25. Mississippi State (6-4) — If only the Bulldogs had a better offense . . .
