Aside from questions about ranking LSU ahead of USC (which I'm not changing), I didn't see any strong arguments to change my original ballot this week, which means I'm (a) doing something right; (b) swaying you into buying into my arguments; or (c) lost your attention completely.
One item: Penn State. Depending on the result of this weekend's game vs. Illinois, Penn State has a spot for itself in the Top 10 -- especially given that the Georgia-Alabama loser will inevitably fall out of the Top 10. I rank USF ahead of Penn State on the strength of the Bulls' win over Kansas. The biggest knock on Penn State is simple: Who have they played?
