As always, I start with my stat rankings. They're printed below for your perusal.

I tried to do as little shuffling as possible. Florida's strength of schedule took a hit with Vandy and Bama's got a boost with LSU, so they swap places this week. They're still well ahead of Texas.

I moved Boise State up ahead of Oregon because I don't think I can have undefeated Boise behind a two loss Duck team. Maybe they could be behind a one loss Oregon, but not a two loss Oregon. I also moved Georgia Tech up and Virginia Tech down because of their records. Also, I dropped Ohio State a spot behind USC because of the head-to-head result. Arizona, Stanford, Oklahoma State, and Wisconsin came in with Central Michigan, Navy, Tennessee, and Oklahoma dropping out.

Please give me some feedback since I don't feel overly great about this one. The general answer for "why isn't _____ ranked higher?" though is "strength of schedule."
