How we voted in ESPN.com's Top 25

9/17/2012

Adam and I don't vote in the Associated Press poll and no coaches have asked us to fill out their ballots yet. But we do have a say in ESPN.com's Power Rankings. Here's how we voted this week:

Adam's ballot

1. Alabama

2. LSU

3. Oregon

4. Florida State

5. West Virginia

6. Georgia

7. Oklahoma

8. South Carolina

9. Stanford

10. Clemson

11. Notre Dame

12. USC

13. Florida

14. Texas

15. Kansas State

16. Ohio State

17. TCU

18. UCLA

19. Michigan

20. Michigan State

21. Louisville

22. Arizona

23. Mississippi State

24. Ohio

25. Nebraska

Brian's ballot

1. Alabama

2. LSU

3. Oregon

4. Florida State

5. Georgia

6. West Virginia

7. Clemson

8. Oklahoma

9. Notre Dame

10. South Carolina

11. Florida

12. Stanford

13. Kansas State

14. Texas

15. USC

16. Ohio State

17. Michigan

18. TCU

19. UCLA

20. Michigan State

21. Louisville

22. Arizona

23. Ohio

24. Mississippi State

25. Northwestern

We both have four Big Ten teams in the rankings, but not the same four. Adam brought the Cornhuskers back after their win over Arkansas State, while I felt that Northwestern should be rewarded for its 3-0 start against three BCS AQ teams. We both have the Buckeyes leading the way among league teams, while I've got Michigan and Michigan State a bit higher than Adam does.

The big movers this week were Notre Dame and Stanford. Adam ranks the Irish 11th, while I have them at No. 9 after their win at Michigan State, which we both had in the top 10 last week. He's higher than I on the Cardinal, placing them ninth after the big victory over USC, while I have Stanford No. 12.

What does your Top 25 look like this week?
