2 Michigan 24
3 LSU 23
4 Virginia Tech 22
5 Texas 21
6 West Virginia 20
7 Oklahoma 19
8 Louisville 18

19 UCLA 7
20 Oregon 6
21 Missouri 5
22 Nebraska 4
23 South Florida 3
24 TCU 2
25 Boise State 1

I had a pretty thorough explanation of why and how the ballot changed from the rough draft, and then Firefox crashed on me and I lost it. I'll get that redone soon and put it in the comments, but in the meantime check out the Preseason Blogpoll at MGo.
