FanSided Top 25 - How VBR Voted

Earlier today, our friends over at Saturday Biltz released the latest edition of the FanSided Top 25.  You can view the full poll HERE.  Both Tim and Matt have a vote in this poll and in the interest of openness, transparency, and mostly to get ridiculed for our rankings, we will be sharing our weekly ballots with our loyal readers here at VBR.  Leave your comments and threats in the comments section below!

The big moves this week came from Stanford and USC, coming off the Cardinal’s upset win on Saturday night in Palo Alto.  Both Tim and Matt had the Trojans ranked second going into the game, while Tim had Stanford #21 and Matt did not rank them.  My how things changed.  Notre Dame continues to shoot up both rankings, sitting at 3-0 and coming off a dominant prime time win against Michigan State.  Things look to shake up again this coming weekend with Florida State and Clemson meeting in Tallahassee, Michigan traveling to South Bend to face the Fighting Irish, and both Kansas State and Oklahoma facing their first big test of the season as the Sooners and Wildcats meet in Norman.  In a couple of “below the radar” games, Rich Rodriguez takes Arizona to Eugene to face Oregon, while Oregon State travels to the Rose Bowl to face the undefeated UCLA Bruins.
