My Top 25, Heisman votes

November, 19, 2013
College football's top prizes still look like Alabama's and Jameis Winston's to lose, as the Crimson Tide are again No. 1 in's power rankings and the Florida State signal caller remains atop Heisman Watch.

Notre Dame's bowl destiny, meanwhile, looks more and more like it could be taking the Irish back to the Big Apple, as the Big 12 will not fill its bowl allotment, leaving open their tie to the New Era Pinstripe Bowl. Colleagues Mark Schlabach and Brad Edwards both project Notre Dame to land in the Bronx, with Mark picking Cincinnati as the opponent and Brad choosing Rutgers.

Here is how I voted in this week's power rankings and in Heisman Watch. (Of note: I do not have a vote in the Associated Press poll or a vote for the Heisman Trophy.)
