T3 Power Rankings - At Week 2 1. - New season, same story. He'll definitely earn his title this year, with games vs Nebraska, Texas, Ohio State and USC coming up. 2. - Coming off of a great road win at Columbus, the early returns on this team look very good. A talented offense and probably the strongest defense fielded in my tenure. 3. - Slick will tell you he's rebuilding, but come on, this is Texas. The talent will always be there for a run at the title and he's the early favorite to win the conference. 4. - This is a really loaded USC squad, can Brian take them the distance? A game vs FSU in week 5 could be huge. 5. - That's right, I've got the Buckeyes ahead of several teams who haven't lost. Those teams also haven't played anyone. Ohio State is still the strongest team on paper and I think this is the year Brave figures out how to defeat Hokie. 6. - Word out of Lincoln is that Blonde isn't really hyped about his team this year. He better get on the big boy boots, because PSU is coming for battle in week 2. 7. - Gets the nod over UCLA and Oklahoma mainly due to QB Quinton Robinson, who is probably the best dual threat QB in the nation. 8. - Perry finally won the Pac-10 and got his 6th star. Question is, can he keep it? He has a tough schedule (at his request) and lost a lot of talent from last years team. 9. - Last year was a rough one for Twist, as he was blown out in multiple games. He did however, have among the top recruiting classes and the talent is there for a title run. I'm very interested in his rematch this year with Nebraska after last years 55-21 debacle. 10. - Things seem to be turning around for OSU, but he's still looking up at the big boys in conference. 11/12. - His win over WSU in week 1 was a tight one, and these guys are pretty much even I'd say.
