About the only changes on my ballot for this week's Associated Press college football poll are a byproduct of opening-weekend match-ups between rated teams.
Florida State and Florida were the only two teams from my preseason ballot to lose over the weekend - I wasn't driving the Texas hype train - and both lost to ranked opponents. I dropped the Seminoles six spots and the Gators seven following losses to top-rated Alabama and a Michigan team I moved from 16th to 13th this week.
Beyond that, it was a quiet opening weekend.
As has been the case the past several years, I will share my ballot with you on a weekly basis. Most weeks, it will appear online around midday Sunday at hawkmania.com and the ballot will appear in print in Monday's paper.
Here is the ballot I submitted to the AP this morning for a poll to be released later today:
2. Ohio State
5. Penn State
8. Florida State
10. Oklahoma State
15. Miami (Fla.)
20. South Florida
21. Kansas State
23. Virginia Tech
