Adam Rittenberg's ballot

1. LSU
2. Alabama
3. Oklahoma State
4. Virginia Tech
5. Stanford
6. Oregon
7. Boise State
8. Arkansas
9. Michigan State
10. Wisconsin
11. Houston
12. USC
13. Oklahoma
14. South Carolina
15. Michigan
16. Georgia
17. Kansas State
18. TCU
19. Baylor
20. Nebraska
21. West Virginia
22. Clemson
23. Penn State
24. Texas
25. Southern Miss

We have the same top three teams but differ on No. 4, as Bennett goes with Stanford and I have surging Virginia Tech. I like Oregon a bit more than Bennett does, and he's higher on the Hogs from Arkansas than I am after LSU gave Bobby Petrino's boys a bayou beatdown on Saturday. Both of us have Legends Division champion Michigan State at No. 9, and I have Wisconsin at No. 10, while Bennett has the Badgers one spot lower. Bennett has Michigan at No. 16, while I have the Wolverines one spot higher but still not in the top 14. (The Wolverines must finish in the top 14 of the BCS standings to earn an at-large berth.) Nebraska appears at No. 20 on both of our ballots, while Penn State falls to No. 22 on Bennett's and No. 23 on mine. We differ on the final two spots, as Bennett went with Florida State and Cincinnati, while I have Texas and Southern Miss.
