JFP Top 25: Week 8

The first BCS standings came out this week. While the rankings might not be the same as the top 10 of the JFP Top 25 poll, they are close. Clemson is getting a lot of love from the BCS but not from me. South Carolina replaces Clemson in my top 10. The other nine teams are the same but not in the same order.

Every bowl eligible team in college football is in the JFP Top 25 poll. Last week, three previously unbeaten teams went down. Illinois, Michigan, and Georgia Tech all lost, but only Michigan lost to a ranked foe.

Feel free to argue my rankings with other polls or the BCS. I always love to hear how I got it wrong.
