My top 25 ballot: Week 2

9/4/2012

Here's how I voted in this week's ESPN Power Rankings, a top 25 poll voted on by a panel of ESPN experts and analysts.

I placed each team's actual USA Today ranking in parentheses. You can get some idea of who I'm high on and who I'm feeling a little more skeptical about.

  • 2. Alabama (1)

  • 3. LSU (3)

  • 4. Oregon (4)
