Last week's ballot

Dropped Out: Wisconsin (#15), Rutgers (#16), Stanford (#20).



My spots one through five are based on examining the schedule strength, the scoring offense, and the scoring defense of the five teams in those slots. They are –

Florida

SOS – 37th
SO – 10th
SD – 1st

Alabama

SOS- 24th
SO – 23rd
SD – 2nd

TCU

SOS – 32nd
SO – 5th
SD – 7th

Texas

SOS – 50th
SO – 2nd
SD – 6th

Cincinnati

SOS – 53rd
SO – 6th
SD – 16th


Based on this, TCU seems to have a slight edge on Texas.

As for the rest of it, who knows? The ACC is a particularly difficult mess.

Let’s hear what you have to say.

Switch out Penn St for Ok St and your Mumme Ballot matches mine in pretty much identical order. If I had to rank my 12 I'd end up with Oregon over OSU and maybe Pitt, but that's mostly just a mental toss up.

Can we get some week 11 power rankings?
