Update [2007-11-11 11:5:42 by rptgwb]: Here's how I see it:
- West Virginia
- Ohio State
- Arizona State
- Virginia Tech
Couple of questions:
- Does KU finally move ahead of Oklahoma?
- Who wins the LSU/Oregon battle?
- How do voters differentiate Mizzou and West Virginia?
- How far does Ohio State fall?
- Does ASU get punished for barely surviving UCLA?
Update [2007-11-11 12:59:52 by rptgwb]: Polls should be rolling out here shortly...
Update [2007-11-11 13:8:20 by rptgwb]: Coaches poll out here.
- Missouri moves up to No. 6, one above last week's Greatest Team in All the Land, Ohio State. The Tigers remain behind West Virginia, who earned a first-place vote.
- OU still gets the nod over Kansas, although the Jawhawks secure more first place votes.
- LSU does indeed take the top spot by a 50-point margin.
- Texas moves to No. 11, inching closer to stealing a BCS spot.
- We welcome back Illinois to the Top 25 at No. 21, giving Mizzou's non-conference schedule some bite again.
Update [2007-11-11 14:0:9 by rptgwb]: The AP poll can be found here.
- Missouri keeps the unanimous AP/Coaches streak alive, checking in at No. 6 in this week's polls.
- OU remains ahead of Kansas, at No. 3 and No. 4, respectively.
- West Virginia barely edged out Mizzou for No. 5. The first place vote WVU received may have been enough to put them ahead.
- LSU takes No. 1, but by a smaller margin than in the Coaches Poll.
- In "teams we suddenly care about" news, Texas sits at No. 12 and Illinois sits at No. 20.
