It’s early September and with most teams only having two data points, there are bound to be pretty large shifts in our poll week to week. Alabama, who I believe most people still believe is the best team in the country, grabbed number one after the week one win over Florida State, now it is USC, whose two wins over Stanford and Western Michigan, are considered the best after week two in our Strength of Record poll.
Oklahoma has taken the top spot in our Power Ranking poll, with USC number one in the combined poll.
As I mentioned last week, it’s early and slowly the cream will rise to the top, particularly when conference play takes hold and already there are starting to be shifts, with fewer of the weaker teams near the top of the SOR poll already.
There is debate over some teams as well. Oregon and Texas for example have wildly different opinions.
