How we voted in ESPN.com's Top 25

Neither Adam nor I vote in the Associated Press, USA Today coaches' or Harris polls, and for some reason we didn't get an Emmy ballot. But we do have a say in ESPN.com's weekly power rankings, and here's what we said this week:

The top of our rankings are not too dissimilar, though Adam has Oregon No. 2 while I'm sticking with Clemson. I've been impressed with the Ducks but would like to see them beat someone better than Tennessee, while Clemson's win over Georgia still strikes me as the better accomplishment. ... Florida State and LSU are also flip-flopped on our ballots. Adam may well be right about that, as Les Miles's team has looked very good and might be the only thing that stands between Alabama and a 12-0 regular-season record. ... We both dropped Michigan quite a bit after a second straight unimpressive showing by the Wolverines. ... Adam keeps Arizona State in and welcomes future Big Ten member Maryland to his Top 25. I believe the Sun Devils should be 1-2, and I brought in a team that beat future Big Ten member Rutgers and Boise State in Fresno State.
