My ballot for this week's CBR power poll:
CrystalBallRun.com Power Rankings Ballot – Week 9
2. Florida State
6. Ohio State
8. Texas Tech
9. Northern Illinois
10. Fresno State
Just missed the cut: Auburn, Stanford, Clemson
*No surprise, but Florida State made a big move this week after laying waste to Clemson in Death Valley. That represents easily the most impressive victory of the season to date.
*It's tough to find fault with anything Oregon is doing, but that big win over Washington is looking less impressive. To be fair, thumping Tennessee might carry a little more weight now. None of it really matters, though, because the Ducks should end up in good shape if they just keep doing what they're doing.
*Baylor continues its run through the gauntlet this week with a trip to Kansas. The Bears picked a bad year to be really good in the Big 12.
*Texas Tech and Missouri get big tests this week. Fresno State should watch its back, too.
