1. USC Trojans (1-0) – Continued #1 from last week after an extremely impressive 45 point victory on the road at Virginia. Quarterback Mark Sanchez had a great start, throwing for three touchdowns for the Trojans. Now off until 9/13 when they will face the Ohio State Buckeyes.
2. Ohio State Buckeyes (1-0) – Remained at two, after a 43-0 win, but a possible injury to star Beanie Wells really could hurt the Buckeyes. X-rays came in negative, so Ohio State hopes to have their star back, hopefully in time for week 3 against USC. Will face Ohio on Saturday.
3. Oklahoma Sooners (1-0) – Also stayed in their preseason spot after a 57-2 winner over Chattanooga on Saturday. The Sooners got off to a quick start with a 28-0 first quarter lead and cruised from there. Oklahoma will take on Cincinnati on Saturday.
4. Georgia Bulldogs (1-0) –The Preseason Associated Press #1 rolled to a victory over inner state opponent, Georgia Southern. Disappointing part for the Dogs is the 21 points allowed to GSU. The Central Michigan Chippewas will come to town on Saturday.
5. Missouri Tigers (1-0) – Remain in the top five after beating a top 25 team. After 94 total points in the game, the Tigers come away with a 10 point victory over rival Illinois. The talk before this game was how improved the Tiger defense will be- that was not shown Saturday night. Missouri will take on the Southeast Missouri State Redhawks on Saturday.
6. Florida Gators (1-0) – Move up a spot from last week. After a scoreless first quarter, 56 points in the next two quarters led the Gators to a 56-10 victory over Hawaii. Tim Tebow was quiet, but the running game of the Gators was way too much for the Warriors. Florida will host Miami on Saturday in what is typically a rough and tough battle.
7. West Virginia Mountaineers (1-0) – Moving up three spots from last week. The Mountaineers led 24-7 at halftime, and rolled from there, beating Villanova 48-21. Week two will be quite the battle for WVU, as they will travel to East Carolina. The Pirates are coming off an upset win over Virginia Tech.
8. LSU Tigers (1-0) – Also moving up three spots from last week. Good start for the Tigers, in knocking off last year's week one darling- Appalachian State. This game was over at halftime, as LSU led 31-0. Will face Troy this coming weekend at home.
9. Texas Longhorns (1-0) – Continuing the trend of moving up three spots. Putting 52 points on the board in week one is a good start for the Longhorns. Quarterback Colt McCoy threw for 222 yards, and also ran for 103 for Texas. They now prepare to take the road at UTEP on Saturday.
10. Texas Tech Red Raiders (1-0) - Moving into the top 10 from their preseason #13 spot. The Red Raiders look like a possible BCS team this season. Only problem is, they will have a tough time running with the big boys of the Big 12. Quarterback Graham Harrell threw for 536 yards and three touchdowns who beat Eastern Washington 49-24. Texas Tech will now take on the Nevada Wolf Pack Saturday on the road.
11. Arizona State Sun Devils (1-0) – Moving up from #14. Had no trouble with inter state opponent Northern Arizona on Saturday. This team will be the sleeper in the ever tough Pac Ten. They will begin conference play on Saturday with Stanford coming to town.
12. Penn State Nittney Lions (1-0) – Improving three spots from #15. The Nittany Lions attempt to send Coach Paterno off in grand style was successful in week one. Putting up 66 points on the board is always a good start. Week two will get a little tougher hosting the Oregon State Beavers.
13. Auburn Tigers (1-0) – Up from #16 in preseason. Blanked Louisiana Monroe in week one. Robert Dunnís 64 yard kick-off return sparked the Tigers to a 14-0 lead after one quarter, and Auburn was able to run away from there. The Tigers will now take on the Eagles of Southern Miss on Saturday.
14. Kansas Jayhawks (1-0) – Kansas moves up from #17. The Jayhawks are starting to fill the seats at Memorial Stadium. Saturday’s crowd was a record for the University of Kansas. The team did not disappoint, leading 30-10 at halftime- before finishing off Florida International with a 40-10 win. The Jayhawks now prepare for the Bulldogs of Louisiana Tech.
15. Boise State Broncos (1-0) – The Broncos had no problems with the Idaho State Bengals rolling 49-7. Things will get tougher after a week off- when the Broncos take on Bowling Green, who was a 27-17 upset winner over Pittsburgh.
16. Fresno State Bulldogs (1-0) – Impressive win on the road at Rutgers. Now get 12 days to prepare for the Wisconsin Badgers making the trip West. This team has a shot at winning the WAC this year. Last week, #20, this week after the nice win move up four spots.
17. Colorado Buffalos (1-0) – The Buffaloes were 38-17 winners over state rival- Colorado State. Dan Hawkins got a nice opening start from his son, quarterback Cody Hawkins. Moving up 4 spots, from preseason #21.
18. Alabama Crimson Tide (1-0) – One of the most impressive week one winners. The Tide left no doubt, leading Clemson 23-3 at halftime, and rolling to a 34-10 win. Alabamaís defense held Clemson to zero rushing yards in the contest. Alabama will now prepare for a home game against Tulane on Saturday. With the win, Alabama creeps from the outside looking in, into the #18 spot.
19. Wisconsin Badgers (1-0) – P.J. Hill ran for 210 yards, as part of the Badgers total of 404 rushing yards on Saturday against Akron. Their 38-17 win gets them off to a solid start, but things are going to start getting tougher as the Badgers take on Marshall next week, before heading to Fresno State September 13. A team that did not see a preseason ranking slides into the #19 spot this week.
20. BYU Cougars (1-0) – Quarterback Max Hall threw for 486 yards for the Cougars, who racked up a total of 563 yards. They 41-17 win over Northern Iowa was a very positive start for BYU. The Cougars now take the road to take on Pac Ten representative Washington. Up four spots from their #24 start
21. South Florida Bulls (1-0) – Leading 28-0 after one quarter, the Bulls left no doubt early on Saturday- Finishing the game with a 56-7 win over Tennessee Martin. The Bulls held UTM to only 96 total yards of offense. The Bulls will take the road next week and take on the UCF Knights. Moving up four spots from #25.
22. Illinois Fighting Illini (0-1) – The Illini put up 42 points, but the problem was defensively, where they allowed 52 points. Chances are they will not see a better offense the entire season, but still allowed too many points to win. The Illini hope to defend better next week at home against Eastern Illinois.
23. Clemson Tigers (0-1) – Clemsonís underachieving football history has continued. Starting the season in the AP top 10, the Tigers did not show up in week one. Alabama blasted Clemson 34-10. The Tigers hope to regroup by Saturday, when The Citadel comes to town. The Tigers fall 17 spots after the loss.
24. Arkansas Razorbacks (1-0) – 1AA Western Illinois gave Arkansas all they could handle and more in week one, in a 28-24 Razorbacks win. It took two touchdowns in the last 8 minutes to win the game. Arkansas drops one spot after the win.
25. Wake Forest Demon Decons (1-0) – The Demon Deacons had no problems with Baylor on Thursday. Quarterback Riley Skinner put up 220 passing yards. Wake Forest will now prepare for SEC representative Mississippi Rebels on Saturday. Wake finds themselves in the polls for the first time this year.
