Oct. 16 FBS top 25

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

1. Alabama (7-0) — And now we wait on Tua's diagnosis.

2. Ohio State (7-0) — Teams keep hanging around, but it takes a lot more to actually beat the Buckeyes.

3. Clemson (6-0) — Still not totally convinced this team is as good as it is hyped up to be.

4. Notre Dame (6-0) — Not every game is going to be easy.

5. LSU (6-1) — The best win of the Ed Orgeron era.

6. Michigan (6-1) — Wolverines made that look way easier than it should be.

7. Texas (6-1) — Trip to Stillwater will be tougher than a lot of people realize.

8. Oklahoma (5-1) — Get the feeling this team will bounce back in a big way against Texas.

9. Georgia (6-1) — The ease with which LSU ran the ball has to be the most concerning to Kirby Smart.

10. Florida (6-1) — Dan Mullen already making better adjustments than his predecessor did.

11. Central Florida (6-0) — November will be interesting. Until then, hit the snooze bar.

12. Oregon (5-1) — Beating Washington made up for the Stanford fiasco.

13. Texas A&M (5-2) — Resume stacks up better than its rankings elsewhere.

14. West Virginia (5-1) — Iowa State is a decent team, but that's the type of game the Mountaineers need to win to be taken seriously.

15. Penn State (4-2) — Still feel this team has good things in front of it.

16. Washington (5-2) — Just a crushing way to go down.

17. Kentucky (5-1) — Might feel a little better about its chances to win the SEC East now.

18. Mississippi State (4-2) — Crushed LSU last year, and has a chance to dampen the Tigers' spirits again.

19. NC State (5-0) — If the Wolfpack win at Clemson, then you've got something here.

20. Wisconsin (4-2) — Just couldn't compete.

21. Iowa (5-1) — Toughest portion of the schedule still on its way.

22. Michigan State (4-2) — Few coaches produce consistent results like Mark Dantonio.

23. South Florida (6-0) — Quality win on the road.

24. Cincinnati (6-0) — Temple will be a better challenge than we would have thought a few weeks ago.

25. Washington State (5-1) — Pac-12 North feels a little more wide open now.
