On Sunday September 8, the votes were due for the Examiner.com college football poll. Every week we are going to delve deeper into the Top 10+1’s individual votes and compare it to the overall rankings.
In the first couple of weeks there have been quite a few big games, but week three will be showcasing the biggest week of the year to date. With that said, there hasn’t been as much movement yet.
Let’s breakdown Top 10+1 college football poll.
Alabama remains at number one after their bye week. The Crimson Tide had extra time to prepare some wrinkles for the Texas A&M Aggies on Saturday afternoon. While Alabama is number one, they have been far from the most impressive team.
We kept Oregon at number two. So far the Ducks have looked very good in dismantling a couple of teams including Virginia. That’s the same Virginia team that upset BYU in week one. Oregon received one first place vote.
While Clemson comes in at number four in the Examiner.com poll, Top 10+1 voted the Tigers at number three.
Stanford won their first game over San Jose State 34-13 and they remain a strong at four.
Georgia rounds out the top five after their victory over South Carolina. They are the first and only team in our top 10 with a loss.
The bottom five of the top 10 are just as good as the top five. Texas A&M has a chance to move up to number one next week. They also have a chance to drop out of the top 10 altogether.
Though Ohio State has not lost a game under Urban Meyer, the knee injury to Braxton Miller is concerning. Still they’ll have plenty of time and chances to move up.
Louisville, LSU and Florida State round out our top 10. Georgia falls in at number nine in the Examiner.com poll. Check below to see the rest of the poll votes and compare them to the official poll.
