Oct. 30 FBS top 25


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


1. Alabama (8-0) — Crimson Tide enjoyed a week off before heading to Tiger Stadium.

2. Clemson (8-0) — Quarterback Trevor Lawrence starting to come into his own.

3. Notre Dame (8-0) — Still hitting on all cylinders.

4. LSU (7-1) — "DBU" will get tested in a big way on Saturday.

5. Michigan (7-1) — Big to get Penn State at home this year.

6. Oklahoma (7-1) — Still nearly unstoppable on offense.

7. Georgia (7-1) — Recovered well from LSU loss.

8. Central Florida (7-0) — Temple will be this team's biggest challenge in a month.

9. Ohio State (7-1) — Gets a Nebraska team that is starting to turn things around a little.

10. Washington State (7-1) — Win at Stanford keeps Cougars in Pac-12 North driving seat.

11. West Virginia (6-1) — Will Grier could get back into the Heisman race this weekend.

12. Penn State (6-2) — Always puts on a good show when it matches up with Iowa.

13. Kentucky (7-1) — How about that for a finish?

14. Florida (6-2) — Wasn't a very fun "party" for the Gators.

15. Texas (6-2) — A disappointing effort against Oklahoma State.

16. Utah (6-2) — Has scored 40 or more points in four straight games.

17. Houston (7-1) — This team is more than just Ed Oliver.

18. Mississippi State (5-3) — Looked like a totally different team than the week before.

20. Iowa (6-2) — Comeback fell just short against Penn State.

21. Texas A&M (5-3) — Had no answer for Mississippi State's Nick Fitzzgerald.

22. Utah State (7-1) — Nice year for teams from Utah.

23. Boston College (6-2) — Excitement level starting to build in Chestnut Hill.

24. Syracuse (6-2) — Orange putting it together at the right time.

25. Virginia (6-2) — Gets a Pitt team next that is better than its record indicates.
