VegasInsider.com College Football Top 25 Rankings

RankTeam2010 SU*2010 ATS**Skinny
1Ohio State BuckeyesOhio State
6-05-1The Buckeyes get the top spot after a dominating performance at home against Indiana. A win this week in Madison almost assure Ohio State of being unbeaten before November.
2Oregon DucksOregon
6-05-1The Ducks did handle Washington State, but that win was a lot closer than expected. We'll just chalk it up as a let down after beating Stanford.
3Boise State BroncosBoise State
5-04-1Well, the Broncos are back where the started on our rankings. Now they just need to beat the snot out of the rest of their schedule to make it to Glendale.
4Nebraska CornhuskersNebraska
5-02-2Nebraska took care of a fraud of an unbeaten team in Kansas State. Now they get to exact some revenge on the Longhorns before they make the trip to the Big Ten.
5TCU Horned FrogsTCU
Horned Frogs
6-02-3They might not be getting the notice, but TCU's defense has blanked two straight teams. Sure, they're against Colorado State and Wyoming but still strong showings. BYU could be a speed bump with Air Force on the horizon.
6Oklahoma SoonersOklahoma
5-01-3Oklahoma should be well rested after the week. Although they probably didn't need it to take on Iowa State this week.
7Utah UtesUtah
5-04-0-1There no mention of the Utes in the title hunt, but there should be. This team has scored at least 56 points in three straight games and damn near dropped 70 on the Cyclones. Utah has its gauntlet start at the end of October with a trip to Air Force. They'll still be unbeaten by that time.
8Alabama Crimson TideAlabama
Crimson Tide
5-14-2Alabama is licking its wounds for the first time since the 2009 Sugar Bowl against the Utes. The sting of the loss shouldn't last too long this week with Ole Miss on the schedule.
9Auburn TigersAuburn
6-03-3Cam Newton kept the Tigers unbeaten with a win over Kentucky last Saturday. Now can he out duel Ryan Mallet next week against Arkansas?
10LSU TigersLSU
6-03-3Les Miles may not be the brightest coach in the nation, but he has plenty of guts. His calls helped the Tigers win at Florida. McNeese State awaits the Tigers this week before a big showdown with Auburn.
11South Carolina GamecocksSouth Carolina
4-13-1Steve Spurrier has the biggest win of his tenure at South Carolina. No rest for the high flying Gamecocks right now with a road trip to Kentucky this week.
12Arkansas RazorbacksArkansas
4-13-1Ryan Mallet appears to have shaken off that bad second half against the Crimson Tide. He'll get another chance to guide the Hogs to a win over an unbeaten club in Auburn this week.
13Michigan State SpartansMichigan State
6-03-2The Spartans effectively stalled Michigan last weekend, but they are primed for a letdown this Saturday against Illinois.
14Iowa HawkeyesIowa
4-13-1The Hawkeyes might be a good team going into Michigan, but they are 0-6 SU and 1-5 ATS when playing a Big Ten battle after a week off.
15Stanford CardinalStanford
5-13-2Andrew Luck proved once again why he is the best quarterback in the nation with that win over USC. It should be fun to see how much he can do to the Cougars in two weeks.
16Arizona WildcatsArizona
4-13-1Before Wildcat fans freak out, losing to the Beavers isn't awful given who they have lost to themselves. That might spell disaster for the Cougars this weekend.
17Wisconsin BadgersWisconsin
5-10-5The Golden Gophers aren't fans of Wisconsin right now. The Badgers will try to do the same to Ohio State on Saturday as well.
18Florida State SeminolesFlorida State
5-14-1Florida State looks nothing like the team that got killed by the Sooners. The 'Noles have a pretty easy road to winning the ACC Atlantic Division after the beating they gave Miami.
19Missouri TigersMissouri
5-02-2Mizzou's offense looks like it's clicking at the moment. They'll get a good test against Texas A&M before taking on Oklahoma.
20Nevada Wolf PackNevada
Wolf Pack
6-03-2Colin Kaepernick and Vai Taua have this team looking like they're unstoppable. Should have no trouble in Hawaii next weekend.
21Air Force FalconsAir Force
5-12-3We knew the Falcons would have a good offense, but their defense is ranked 35th nationally.
22Oklahoma State CowboysOklahoma State
5-04-1The Cowboys proved they could get back on their horse against UL-Lafayette after a sub-par first half.
23Michigan WolverinesMichigan
5-13-2The Wolverines failed against the first decent defense they faced in Michigan State. How will they respond this week when they take on Iowa?
24Virginia Tech HokiesVirginia Tech
4-24-1I think the Hokies have finally forgotten about the first two games of the season. That beat down of North Carolina State should be proof.
25West Virginia MountaineersWest Virginia
4-23-1The Mountaineers are the best team (by default) in the Big East. That isn't really a knock as they've easily shown the most fight of any team in that league's set of non-conference play.
