As always, I start with the stat rankings. See below. Bama moves out to a huge lead thanks to strength of schedule.

Most of the adjustments I had to make were moving teams down. Georgia Tech and Oklahoma State had to move up, but that's about it for that.

I moved Georgia Tech above Boise State, which is the first time I've broken up the undefeateds since they all got lined up in the first place. It doesn't have as much to do with last weekend's games, since each won giant blowouts, but it's more to do with recognizing the weakness in Boise's schedule. You'll note the table below actually has the Broncos 10th, behind multi-loss teams Oregon, Ohio State, and Virginia Tech. I'm not quite ready to go that far, but GT with one loss I can handle.

From there, I don't have a lot of big moves, just some small ones to make things make sense. Let me hear what you think.
