Poll: The No. 1 team in the nation is…

Voting Booth AP

No. 1 Oklahoma, No. 4 Boise State and No. 7 Texas A&M were off this weekend, so their status is, um, quo (?).

And, with the exception of relatively close calls for the schools sitting at Nos. 10-12 in the rankings — Nebraska, Virginia Tech and South Carolina, respectively — the rest of the top dozen or so teams cruised with relative ease, so there was very little shakeup loss-wise among the top teams in the country.

In fact, the highest-ranked team to lose, No. 16 Mississippi State, was also the only ranked team to suffer a loss to an unranked team this weekend (No. 21 Missouri lost to unranked Arizona State Friday).  The only other ranked team to lose was No. 23 Penn State, which was easily dispatched by No. 3 Alabama.

So, with very little change expected at the top to middle of the polls, who you got after Week 2?  Who’s your No. 1 team at this very early juncture of the season?

Please, feel free to let your votes be heard below.  And allow your voices in the comments section to do the same.

    Oklahoma. You started with them as #1, keep them #1. If they don’t play, keep them #1, if they do play and lose, keep them #1. LSU does not want to be #1 until after the SuperDome.

    Boise beat a now 0-2 (6-9 from last year)

    Georgia goes 6-7, gets ranked in the offseason, goes 0-2.


    Just saying guys. Boise’s yet to beat someone in regular season who wasn’t overrated and is building a streak of beating a “tough” team who loses the next week.

    Relax Boise fans, you’re biggest problem is pre season rankings. You suffer when a team ends up sucking that people build up as your big game. Not your fault. You beat who your schedule puts in front of you.

    Keep fighting, I’m actually hoping to see you in the mix for the title come January. Time for Boise to get a shot to take a trophy home.

    Boise might have their hands full with Toledo.

    Not as much Ohio State did.

    Won’t be as much as Ohio State did.

    Ohio State looked like a ziplock bag full of smashed a$$holes. They had about half their defensive starters out, and I couldn’t believe as bad as Bauserman looked they never gave Braxton Miller a single series.

    Toledo is a much better team than people think, many experts have them walking away with the MAC for what thats worth.

    Does Mack Brown even coach? seems like he’s a cheerleader with a headset. How many games will Texas will this year, please say more than OSU.

    Mack Brown cans half his staff because he’s a politician acting as a football coach. Oklahoma will always own Texas, even after they join another conference. The Texas football ego amazes me. How many titles has Texas won? like 2…..

    SPREAD FOOTBALL IS WEAK…. thats what texas does. sissyball.

    I know they haven’t played anyone yet but Arkansas needs to be on this list to! Texas a&m???? Arkansas hung 50 on both nobody’s! Espn said this is a very disappointing lose for the Lobos??? what! Like they should have won? They better be glad they pulled Wilson at half or it might have been 60! Arkansas will win the sec west this year!

    Take it easy Oklahoma. I voted for you for right now because FSU hasn’t beat you yet. You have NO right talkin smack. The last time you actually lived up to pre-season expectations and didn’t choke was ELEVEN YEARS AGO!!!

    You’re also tied for 4th w/USC behind Ohio State, Alabama and Notre Dame for most Nat’l Titles since the AP poll was released. Aside from ND’s collapse over the last decade, the others have all won championships more recent than you. Finish your season w/a title, then tall smack. Until then, based on this decade, you’ll just be another Boise St. Sucks huh?

    Polls are one of the worst parts of college football. You could take 100 different polls in the preseason and early in the season and you’d likely get 100 distinct responses. What other major sport takes polls? Zero. By allowing writers and coaches to have a say is a practice from a bygone era. Time to modernize NCAA.

    bmmayhew: We hate the pre-season polls for every reason we can think of and similar for the early season. It does give us some fun to discuss the idiocy, however. Notre Dame is in the top 25 polls every year, no matter what quality their team may be. Other teams are a little less preferred, but preferred. It is a hoot! We agree with you~

    My Top 5 Today – in no particular order;

    Florida State

    Honorable Mention – as of today

    Boise State
    Virginia Tech
    Texas A&M

    How about a poll with teams that won’t make the top 25 in BS automatic bid conf for te next 10 yrs?? I’d nominate UCLA. They looked terrible against a San Jose State team playing their backup QB.

    Since OU has two weeks to get ready for FSU, the Sooners will win, and ultimately play Bama for the NC.
