1. Michigan - Big Blue is back! These Wolverines are going against the grain and not only played the the toughest non-conference schedule they traveled down to the dirty south and knocked off two SEC powerhouses in LSU and Georgia in back-to-back weeks. Denard Robinson is breaking the stigma of the Big-10 lacking speed and is cracking knees and ankles at a pace that would make Tanya Harding jealous. 2. Alabama - This team hasn't faced a true test yet, but they've only given up 14 points in four games. If they can knock off LSU in Tuscaloosa then they'll be right in line for the national championship. 3. Georgia - This team's only loss came at the hands of the Wolverines, but they were able to bounce back and knock off #2 South Carolina to stay in the picture in the SEC. 4. LSU - The Tigers have had a tough schedule so far and were within one score of #1 Michigan, but they slip in the power rankings because they were almost doubled up by South Carolina in their SEC opener. 5. Iowa - After a rough 0-2 start this team bounced back to knock off FSU and Wisconsin in back to back weeks. The Hawkeyes are 2-0 in the Big10 and should be playing for the conference championship against Michigan in week 9. 6. FSU - At 2-2 the Seminoles still control their own fate in the ACC. They play Clemson in week 11 which will likely determine the champion of the conference. 7. Clemson - Their loss to Virginia Tech is a setback for them in the ACC, but they are still in second place in the conference. 8. Georgia Tech - After two big wins to start the season over Iowa and defending national champion North Carolina, they lost their next three games to slip into 10th place of the ACC. 9. USC - Former Oklahoma coach has jumped ship mid-season and is looking to bring the Trojans back to their national power days of the Pete Caroll era, but losing 38 - 35 to Cal has changed their expectations. The Pac-10 is still open if they can finish strong.
