Neither Adam nor I vote in any of the three major polls, but we do have a say in ESPN.com's weekly national power rankings. Here's what we said this week:

Adam's Top 25

1. Alabama
2. Florida State
3. Ohio State
4. Baylor
5. Auburn
6. Oregon
7. Clemson
8. Stanford
9. Oklahoma State
10. Missouri
11. South Carolina
12. Texas A&M
13. Wisconsin
14. Michigan State
15. UCLA
16. Arizona State
17. LSU
18. Oklahoma
19. USC
20. UCF
21. Louisville
22. Northern Illinois
23. Fresno State
24. Duke
25. Minnesota

Brian's Top 25

1. Alabama
2. Florida State
3. Ohio State
4. Baylor
5. Auburn
6. Clemson
7. South Carolina
8. Oregon
9. Stanford
10. Oklahoma State
11. Missouri
12. Texas A&M
13. Wisconsin
14. Michigan State
15. UCLA
16. LSU
17. Arizona State
18. USC
19. Oklahoma
20. UCF
21. Fresno State
22. Louisville
23. Northern Illinois
24. Minnesota
25. Duke

Not a whole heck of a lot of difference in our two ballots. The hardest part for me this week was how to solve the riddle of Stanford and Oregon. The Cardinal lost to USC, but is that enough to put them behind a Ducks team they just blasted a week earlier? And how good are both teams? Stanford has some really good wins but also has lost to Utah and USC. It's tough. I moved both down and have Oregon one spot ahead, but I don't feel great about it. ... Wisconsin and Michigan State stay stagnant this week. They're about even, in my view. ... Minnesota moves up one spot in my poll and stays at No. 25 for Adam. If you figured Duke and Minnesota would each be ranked in mid-November, take a bow.

What does your Top 25 look like this week?
