How we voted in ESPN.com's Top 25

Neither Adam nor I vote in the Associated Press or Harris polls, and since we're not sports information directors or football ops guys, we don't vote in the coaches' poll either. But we do have a say in the weekly ESPN.com power rankings, and here's what we had to say this week:

Adam moves Florida into the No. 2 spot, while I'm sticking with Oregon there for now. We both dropped Ohio State a couple of notches after a more difficult than expected overtime win over Purdue. We both also debut Penn State in our rankings; Adam has the Lions at No. 22, while I slot them it at No. 23. He has them ahead of Michigan, while I have the Wolverines a couple spots higher. Wisconsin is in the BCS standings but not in either of our top 25s. Adam is more bullish on Ohio than I am. I loved what the Bobcats did in the opener in State College but haven't been nearly as impressed since. I kept West Virginia ranked, while Adam dropped the Mountaineers out completely. He probably has more sound reasoning for that than I, but I still think West Virginia would beat a whole lot of teams with that offense.

What does your Top 25 look like this week?
