1.      USC Trojans (2-0) – After a 35-3 blowout winner over Ohio State, the Trojans remain #1. Rey Maualuga’s interception in the second quarter essentially put the game out of hand against Ohio State on Saturday- putting them up 21-3. Quarterback Mark Sanchez went 17-28 for 172 yards and four touchdowns in the win. Pete Carroll and the boys wanted to put all questions to rest about whether USC was the team to beat or not. The Trojans will travel to Oregon State next week, before coming back home and taking on the Ducks of Oregon.

2.      Georgia Bulldogs (3-0) – The Bulldogs narrowly escaped South Carolina with a 14-7 win allowing them to move up one position in this weeks poll. The game was still in question until Reshad Jones picked off a Chris Smelley pass at the three yard line with just under a minute to play.  Knowshon Moreno once again scored the winning touchdown; a four yard run to put the Dogs up 14-7. Moreno has ran for over 300 yards and got himself into the end zone seven times early in the season. The Bulldogs will face another test traveling to Arizona State for a game with the Sun Devils on Saturday.

3.      Oklahoma Sooners (3-0) - A 55-14 win over Washington help the Sooners move up a position from #4 to 3. In the Sooners three wins, they have averaged 54.6 points a game. On Saturday, quarterback Sam Bradford threw for 304 yards and five touchdowns to bury Washington. Running backs Chris Brown and DeMarco Murray combined for 207 yards on just 29 carries on Saturday. Oklahoma will take this week off, before taking on TCU September 27th.

4.      Missouri Tigers (3-0) - 69-17 winners over Nevada moves the Tigers up a spot. Can anyone stop the Tigers offense? So far the answer to that question has been no. After the win over Illinois in the opening week, the Tigers next two opponents have been less than stellar- Southeast Missouri State and Nevada. Chase Daniel has become the Tigers all time leading passer throwing for over 400 yards on Saturday. On Saturday the Tigers scored on each of their first ten possessions. Missouri will complete their non conference schedule on Saturday against Buffalo at home.

5.      Florida Gators (2-0) - Move up a spot during bye week.  The Gators have defeated Hawaii and Miami to start the season. Tim Tebow has started his heisman campaign by completing 30 of 49 passes for 393 yards and three touchdowns. In the win over Miami, Tebow threw for 256 yards and also ran for 55 more. The Gators will make a tough early season trip to Tennessee to take on the Vols’ in a huge SEC match up.

6.      LSU Tigers (3-0) – The Tigers were a 41-3 winner over North Texas leading to their moving up a spot in the rankings. The Tigers have put up 41 points in each of their first two games, wins over Appalachian State and North Texas. On Saturday the Tigers ran for 216 on 28 carries. The Tigers will now begin their SEC slate, where they will travel to #10 Auburn on Saturday for what appears to be the college game of the week.

7.      Texas Longhorns (2-0) - Rising one position, with their game getting postponed due to Hurricane Ike. With 52-10 and 42-13 wins over Florida Atlantic and UTEP the Longhorns have two more non-conference battles, before the tough Big 12 schedule begins.  Quarterback Colt McCoy has done all he can to keep his name in contention for the Heisman throwing 58 times, completing 44 passes for 504 yards and seven touchdowns. His top receiver, Quan Cosby has caught 11 passes for 188 yards. Texas will take on Rice on Saturday.

8.      Texas Tech Red Raiders (3-0) - 43-7 winner over Southern Methodist helps move up a spot. The Red Raiders high-powered attack has put 127 points in their first three games. Quarterback Graham Harrell has thrown for over 1200 yards and completed eight touchdowns in the early going. Wins over Eastern Washington, Nevada, and Southern Methodist, and their week four match up with Massachusetts will only do so much to prepare the Red Raiders for the vigor’s of the Big Twelve. Three of the first four conference games are on the road for Texas Tech.

9.      Ohio State Buckeyes (2-1) - 35-3 loss to USC knocks the Buckeyes down 7 spots. The Buckeyes were bruised, battered and beaten on Saturday. The Trojans made a statement in their pounding of Ohio State. Without Beanie Wells the Buckeyes had a terrible time running the ball, and moving the ball in general was a tough task. The Buckeyes will take on Troy on Saturday, before their Big Ten schedule begins, starting with Minnesota, before taking the road to take on Wisconsin in Madison.

10.   Penn State Nittany Lions (3-0) – Another Big Ten squad rounds out the top ten. A 55-13 winner over Syracuse, allowed Penn State to jump in after last weeks number 11 mark. Coach Paterno’s squad has scored 166 points, which ranks among the best in the nation, while allowing just 37. Their wins over Coastal Carolina, Oregon State and Syracuse are nothing to write home about, but the Lions enjoy the ride up the BCS latter. This week Penn State will take on Temple at home, before hosting Illinois next week in both teams Big Ten opener.

11.  Auburn Tigers (3-0) – The Tigers move up a spot after the historic week three victory over Mississippi State in which they only needed 3 points to win. A 3-2 win was capped by a Wes Bynum 35 year field goal in the second quarter. The Tigers offense did not allow any points the entire ball game. Auburn has only allowed 15 points in three games. This week will be a much tougher test for Auburn, who after beating Louisiana-Monroe, Southern Miss, and Mississippi State, and host LSU, in a huge SEC battle.

12.  Wisconsin Badgers (3-0) - The Badgers continue to surprise, and impress out of the Big Ten Conference. Going across country and knocking off an upbeat Fresno State ball club was one of the more impressive feats this past week. The Badgers limited Fresno State to just 10 points. P.J. Hill carried the ball 26 times for Wisconsin, accumulating 112 yards. Wisconsin made a huge jump for 19 last week to number 12 this week. Wisconsin will travel to Ann Arbor on Saturday to face the 1-2 Michigan Wolverines in the Big Ten opener.

13.  Boise State Broncos (2-0) – The Broncos are not receiving much respect from the Associated Press or the Coaches Poll. The Broncos move up a position from # 14 to #13 this week after their second win of the season. Boise State has beat Idaho State and Bowling Green to start the year allowing just 7 points a game, while scoring 35.5. The Broncos running back Ian Johnson has been tough in the first two games, getting in the end zone three times, compiling 184 yards on 27 carries. Quarterback Kellen Moore has completed 32 of 42 passes for 454 yards and two touchdowns. Boise State will face their strongest test so far this season on Saturday when they travel to Oregon to face the Ducks.

14.  East Carolina Pirates (3-0) – After two upset wins, the Pirates were set up for a trap game on Saturday. Instead of falling into the trap on the road, the Pirates came away from Tulane 28-24 winners moving to 3-0, and advancing up the BCS rankings. In the three wins, quarterback Patrick Pinkney has thrown for over 700 yards and four touchdowns, while throwing just one interception. Running back Johnathan Williams has reached the end zone in each of the first three games. East Carolina moves up one spot from number 15 to #14. The Pirates will travel to North Carolina State on Saturday

15.  South Florida Bulls (3-0) – The Bulls used a 43-yard field goal from freshman kicker Maikon Bonani to knock off the Kansas Jayhawks Friday night at home. In the win over Kansas quarterback Matt Grothe completed 32 of 45 passes, and helped the Bulls score 27 points in the second half. Grothe has thrown seven touchdown passes in the first three games of the season for USF. The win moved the Bulls from # 23, all the way up to #15. South Florida will travel to Florida International on Saturday.

16.  BYU Cougars (3-0) – The Cougars continued the nations longest winning streak, and did it in impressive fashion Saturday, in the 56-0 win over UCLA. In that win, quarterback Max Hall threw seven touchdown passes. The Cougars led 42-0 at halftime; in a game that was expected to be competitive. The Cougars will battle Wyoming on Saturday in their Mountain West Conference opener.  The win sent the Cougars skyrocketing up 6 spots in the rankings from 16 to 22.

17.  Alabama Crimson Tide (3-0) – The running game for the Crimson Tide continues to be impressive. In Saturday’s win over Western Kentucky three different Alabama running backs ran for over 50 yards, as the team compiled 282 yards on the ground in the game. Alabama had the ball on offense for 37:21 on Saturday, almost 15 more minutes then their opponent, Western Kentucky. The win moves Alabama up on position. Alabama will take the road on Saturday to begin their SEC slate at Arkansas.

18.  Colorado Buffaloes (2-0) - Colorado has still yet to crack the Associated Press or Coaches Poll after two wins to start the season. Quarterback Cody Hawkins has completed 48 of 67 passes 475 yards and four touchdowns in the first two games. Colorado’s two wins over Colorado State, and Eastern Washington will not be as tough of a task, as five of their next six will be. In those games, they will face ranked opponents in all but the October 18th game against Kansas State. With opponents like West Virginia, Florida State, Texas, Kansas and Missouri coming up, Colorado will need to be ready. Colorado rises one spot this week from 18 to 17.

19.  Kansas Jayhawks (2-1) – Kansas drops six spots from 19 to 13 after the road loss at South Florida on Friday. The Jayhawks had their chances, but were unable to come through late. Quarterback Todd Reising is continuing to put up big numbers for the Jayhawks offense. Kansas will battle Sam Houston State on Saturday, before beginning their Big 12 schedule at home against Iowa State on October 4th.

20.  Illinois Fighting Illini (2-1) – Illinois did not play their best game on Saturday against Louisiana Lafayette, but were able to escape with a 20-17 win. Quarterback Juice Williams had led the Illini attack throwing for 722 yards and seven touchdowns, to help in the offense scoring 109 points in three games. The defense has been a concern, allowing 90 points in three games so far. The Illini remain at #20 heading into their bye week. After a week off, Illinois will travel to Happy Valley for a huge Big Ten opener against Penn State.

21.  Arizona State Sun Devils (2-1) –Arizona State made the biggest drop in the rankings falling from #10 to #21 after their 23-20 home loss to UNLV. Quarterback Rudy Carpenter has played well to start the year for the Sun Devils, completing 62 of 87 passes, for 975 yards, and six touchdowns. His running back Dimitri Nance has carried the ball 47 times for 197 yards and three touchdowns in the early going. The road does not get any easier for the Sun Devils, who on Saturday will host Georgia, before two straight weeks on the road, including trips to Cal, and USC.

22.  West Virginia Mountaineers (1-1) –  West Virginia drops a position in the rankings while not evening playing. #21 last week, the Mountaineers slide to #22 this week. After the 24-3 loss in week two to East Carolina, West Virginia hopes to regain the offense, on Saturday as they travel to Colorado to take on the Buffaloes. The Mountaineers still appear to be the class of the Big East, but will have stiff competition from South Florida and possibly Connecticut.

23.  Clemson Tigers (2-1) – Clemson moves up a spot after a 27-9 win over North Carolina State. In the win Cullen Harper threw for 262 yards and two touchdowns, after throwing an interception on his first pass of the game. Running back C.J. Spiller ran for 61 yards and a touchdown on ten carries. He also caught a pass for a touchdown, which gives him six on the season. Clemson will take on South Carolina State on Saturday, before continuing their ACC slate on September 27 against Maryland.

24.  Wake Forest Demon Deacons (2-0) – Another ACC team sneaks in the bottom half of the top 25. Moving up a spot from 25 to 24, the Wake Forest Demon Deacons are 2-0 on the young season. With wins at Baylor and over Mississippi, Wake Forest has played some average competition, unlike some of their BCS predecessors. Wake Forest has scored 71 points, and allowed 41 on the season. Saturday will be their toughest task yet taking on a Florida State Seminoles squad that has put 115 points on the board, and only allowed 7. This will be quite the test for the unproven Demon Deacons squad.

25.  Oregon Ducks (3-0) – The Ducks are flying high. Coming into the game against Purdue on Saturday unranked in the Bank Roll Sports Top 25, they needed all 60 minutes plus some to come away with a huge road win at Purdue. LeGarrette Blount rushed two yards for a TD in the second overtime to cap off the victory. Blount, needed only 10 carries to rack up 120 yards and two touchdowns. Oregon will face an upstart Boise State team at home on Saturday before taking the road to Washington State on September 27th.

Arkansas, Oregon, Utah, Virginia Tech, Michigan State, Pittsburgh
