Oct. 1 FBS Top 25


1. Clemson (5-0) — Found a way to survive against UNC.

2. Alabama (5-0) — That win over Duke looks a lot better now, doesn't it?

3. LSU (4-0) — Quarterback battle between Joe Burrow and Utah State's Jordan Love will be must-see TV for draftniks.

4. Georgia (4-0) — Well-placed bye week after the Notre Dame game.

5. Ohio State (5-0) — Love this team, but who have the Buckeyes beaten that's any good?

6. Oklahoma (4-0) — Question becomes if this is Lincoln Riley's last year as a college coach.

7. Texas (3-1) — Should beat West Virginia with Red River Shootout next. Red River Rivalry is a dumb name, we're not using it here.

8. Notre Dame (3-1) — Quality win over a good Virginia team.

9. Wisconsin (4-0) — Typical Big Ten slobberknocker win over Northwestern.

10. Auburn (5-0) — What an insanely-tough schedule so far with Florida, LSU, Georgia, and Alabama still on the horizon.

11. Oregon (3-1) — Gets a wounded Cal team next.

12. Penn State (4-0) — Scary thing is how many sophomores are leading the way here.

13. Iowa (4-0) — We will see if Michigan has really bounced back if they beat the Hawkeyes in Ann Arbor this weekend.

14. Florida (5-0) — Defense is still fine.

15. Washington (4-1) — Two road trips before huge matchup with Oregon.

16. Boise State (4-0) — Bye week should have this team fresh for the rest of the schedule.

17. Virginia (4-1) — Showed some fight in loss to Notre Dame.

18. Wake Forest (5-0) — Clemson's biggest threat in the ACC Atlantic Division. 19. Texas A&M (3-2) — Not really sure if this team actually belongs in the top 25.

20. Central Florida (4-1) — Game with Cincinnati could be a real test.

21. Utah (4-1) — Impressive showing against Wazzu.

22. Arizona State (4-1) — Another young team that is getting better every week.

23. Cal (4-1) — Injuries a factor in that ASU loss. 24. Michigan (3-1) — Iowa game should be a chance to put Wisconsin thrashing behind it. 25. SMU (5-0) — Pony Express galloping back into relevance.
