Dropped Out: Florida State (#20).

Games I watched: Tennessee-Georgia and Florida-LSU.

2. Florida. Solid win over LSU despite LSU's comedy of errors. Leak is the cruiser, and Tebow gives them a little extra juice when they need it. It was only a matter of time before Tebow actually faked the run to the left and threw over the coverage, and now that both are viable options, who will be able to stop it?

3. Michigan. I'm not overlooking a nice win over Michigan State, but it just didn't seem as impressive as the Gators' over the Tigers.

4. West Virginia. Um, okay. Who have they played again? Oh, that's right, Marshall, E. Washington, Maryland, E. Carolina, and Mississippi State. Surely they don't deserve a No. 4, do they?

5. Louisville. Same as West Virginia, but they've actually played Miami. The Hurricanes may be more of a tropical storm this year, but at least I can tell you what city their school's in, which is more than I can say about West Virginia's opponents. So, note to self: bump these guys above WV in the final. Any objections?

6. THE VOLS are looking like the SEC's second-best team. So much for the pre-season notion that the SEC East champion would have no chance against Auburn or LSU from the West. It still may shake out that way, but it's a live race now.

7. Southern Cal. Less than impressive the last two weeks, so they sink below Tennessee, whose one-point loss was to the No. 2-ranked Gators.

8. Cal. Making the Vols look better on a weekly basis.

10. Clemson. Struggled for three quarters v. Wake Forest, but boot-strapped themselves into fourth-quarter dominance with a blocked field goal for a touchdown.

14. Arkansas. Bursts onto the scene with a surprisingly dominant performance over Auburn.

Any others look weird or need any further explanation?
