Top 3 shell game in my AP poll

Posted November 9, 2009
Updated November 10, 2009

The top three teams in my AP poll continue to move around like the shell game. You know, the one where 3 shells are shuffled around and around an only one contains a ball. Guess which one has it?

This week Texas is the shell that has my No. 1 ranking.  Alabama moves into the 2nd slot after its win over LSU.  Florida is now 3rd in my poll which differs from the overall AP poll. The Gators hold the top spot with 39 first place votes. Texas has 10 and Alabama 11.

I kept Boise State at No. 4 despite their modest 10-point win at Louisiana Tech. The Broncos, TCU and Cincinnati are in the 2nd tier of unbeaten teams. Cincinnati is my 5th ranked team because they keep winning with their back-up quarterback, Zach Collaros, leading the way. Starting QB Tony Pike gets his position back when he's healthy. That could be Friday night against West Virginia. TCU is looking better and better with wins at Clemson and BYU. 

Out of my poll this week are Notre Dame, Cal and Oklahoma. The new entries include Arizona, Navy and Oregon State.

So here's my 10th AP poll of the season.

1-Texas
2-Alabama
3-Florida
4-Boise State
5-Cincinnati
6-TCU
7-Ohio State
8-Georgia Tech
9-Houston
10-Pittsburgh
11-USC
12-Utah
13-Miami
14-Iowa
15-LSU
16-Penn State
17-Oregon
18-Arizona
19-BYU
20-Oklahoma State
21-Wisconsin
22-Virginia Tech
23-West Virginia
24-Navy
25-Oregon State
