How we voted in ESPN.com's Top 25

By Brian Bennett

Neither Adam nor I vote in the AP, coaches or Harris polls, and we've yet to be asked to serve as Miss America judges. But we do have a say in ESPN.com's weekly power rankings, and here's what we said this week:

Adam's Top 25

1. Alabama
2. Clemson
3. Oregon
4. Ohio State
5. Stanford
6. LSU
7. Texas A&M
8. Florida State
9. Georgia
10. Louisville
11. Oklahoma State
12. Oklahoma
13. South Carolina
14. UCLA
15. Miami
16. Michigan
17. Northwestern
18. Washington
19. Ole Miss
20. Baylor
21. Florida
22. Notre Dame
23. Arizona State
24. Wisconsin
25. Texas Tech

Brian's Top 25

1. Alabama
2. Clemson
3. Oregon
4. Ohio State
5. Stanford
6. Florida State
7. Texas A&M
8. LSU
9. Georgia
10. Louisville
11. Oklahoma State
12. UCLA
13. Michigan
14. South Carolina
15. Miami
16. Oklahoma
17. Northwestern
18. Washington
19. Baylor
20. Ole Miss
21. Notre Dame
22. Arizona State
23. Wisconsin
24. Florida
25. UCF

Our Top 5s are identical this week, so maybe we're thinking too much alike. Northwestern and Wisconsin are also eerily similar in both our rankings. Where we differ the most is on Michigan. We both bumped them down a few notches after the shaky win over Akron, but Adam has the Wolverines three spots lower than I do. We both also booted out Nebraska, as we should have, and placed the Badgers and Sun Devils right next to each other after that controversial game.

What does your Top 25 look like this week?
