Goz’s College Football Top 25 Poll (Week 11)
This season I’ll be providing my own personal Top 25 poll each week during the college football season. My poll philosophy is ranking the teams I believe are the best twenty five best in the country following that given week’s games. Below are my rankings and comments about each week’ biggest shake up and changes.
6) Ohio State
9) Texas A&M
11) Western Michigan
12) West Virginia
13) Penn State
15) North Carolina
16) Florida State
18) Washington State
19) Oklahoma State
23) South Florida
Should Washington be at #4?- The biggest controversy of the college football playoff committee’s first ranking was Texas A&M over Washington. After a loss by the Aggies, it seems like no doubt the Huskies from the Pacific Northwest. I agree with the Huskies at #4…. for now. Two impressive wins by Ohio State including one by Michigan could help them leap Washington. Also in a one on one game my opinion of if Louisville could defeat them continues to defer for him each week.
Did Florida, Nebraska and Baylor drop too far?- All of these teams were considered top ten teams in the country two weeks ago. Since then Nebraska and Baylor have lost twice while Florida lost to Arkansas 31-10. This seems like the fairest place to put these teams after their most recent results. In fact, I considered swapping USC with Baylor at 24. That could happen next week if the Trojans look in impressive this weekend.
A Week With No Upsets?! -Only Baylor versus Oklahoma is the lone match up between two ranked teams. I don’t see a lot of movement when we check with the poll next week.
