My ballot for this week's CBR power poll:
CrystalBallRun.com Power Rankings Ballot – Week 11
1. Florida State
4. Ohio State
9. Fresno State
10. Northern Illinois
Just missed the cut: Oklahoma, Michigan State, Clemson
*What propelled FSU from No. 3 last week to No. 1? I still consider the Seminoles' blowout win at Clemson the best victory any team has scored this season, and while expected, the easy win over Miami padded their resume. Unfortunately for the 'Noles, I think it's all downhill from here.
*Meanwhile, Alabama's early win over Virginia Tech doesn't really pack the same punch. Winning at College Station still appears pretty impressive, as does shutting out Ole Miss, but the rest is kinda meh. With LSU, Auburn and the SEC title game remaining, I expect I'll have 'Bama on top if it wins out.
*Oregon will get its shot to make a big move with Thursday night's trip to Stanford. Likewise, Baylor can bolster its case against Oklahoma.
