Poll breakdown after the break

Teams ranked exactly where BTD placed them

Oklahoma - For the second straight week, BTD and the rest of the nation agreed that the Sooners are the 2nd best team in the nation. Oklahoma demolished Tulsa this weekend, 47-14.  

South Carolina - Like Oklahoma, the Gamecocks have brought BTD and the country together. USC remains at #12 after their 56-37 assault on East Carolina.

Ohio State - The Buckeyes are the lone newcomer this week at #15. Building the Dam was ahead of the curve as we had tOSU five spots higher than the rest of the nation in our preseason poll.

Pac-12 Breakdown

Stanford and Oregon represented the Pac-12 in the actual Top 25, coming in at 5th and 14th, respectively. Stanford also received two first place votes.

Going down to the ARV category, you begin to see a lot of Pac-12 members. There's Arizona State at #26, USC at 30, Utah at #40, California at 43rd, Arizona comes in at #50, Washington State at #53, and Oregon State at 60th.

Oregon State Watch

Oregon State climbed six spots in the polls after their 54-7 thrashing of Sacramento State 29-28 overtime loss against the Hornets. Someone forgot to tell Eagle in Atlanta this, who put the Beavers at #16 in their poll.
