Oct. 9 FBS top 25

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

1. Alabama (6-0) — How long are we going to have to wait until we see a close game? Or will there be one?

2. Georgia (6-0) — Trip to LSU will be a dandy . . . we think.

3. Ohio State (6-0) — Teams hang around against the Buckeyes. They just don't beat them. Yet.

4. Clemson (6-0) — Bye week before an interesting home game against NC State.

5. Notre Dame (6-0) — Just don't see a loss on this schedule.

6. Penn State (4-1) — Gets a smarting Michigan State team next.

7. Washington (5-1) — Trip to Oregon will be a massive test.

8. Michigan (5-1) — Hosts Wisconsin in what will be must-watch stuff.

9. Texas (5-1) — Enormous win over the Sooners.

10. Oklahoma (5-1) — Kyler Murray's Heisman hopes aren't over.

11. West Virginia (5-0) — Will Grier still completing over 71 percent of his passes.

12. Wisconsin (4-1) — Has put that BYU loss behind it.

13. Florida (5-1) — Found a way to gut it out over LSU.

14. LSU (5-1) — Must regroup against a loaded Georgia team.

15. Central Florida (5-0) — Points are never a problem.

16. Miami (5-1) — Strong comeback in rivalry win over Florida State.

17. Texas A&M (4-2) — Outlasted Kentucky in barnburner.

18. Kentucky (5-1) — Still in position to achieve its goals.

19. Mississippi State (4-2) — A bye week before a trip to LSU.

20. Auburn (4-2) — Looked out of sorts against Mississippi State.

21. Oregon (4-1) — Can make a statement against Washington.

22. NC State (5-0) — Survived a game BC comeback.

23. Colorado (5-0) — Starting to get a few believers on its side.
