The easy part of my weekly ballot for the Associated Press college football poll lately has been filling in the first three lines.
Alabama, Clemson and Notre Dame continue to take care of business and for the third straight week have held down the top three spots.
Alabama and Clemson seemingly continue to toss aside anything that comes in their way, while Notre Dame isn't flashy but seemingly finds a way to get things done in a workmanlike fashion.
The Tide's shutout of a solid LSU team was impressive, even by Tide standards, and Georgia demonstrated that is the next-best team in the SEC in its handling of Kentucky.
The Bulldogs move back into my top five this week, right behind Michigan and replacing an LSU team it lost to earlier in the year in this what-have-you-done-for-me-lately world.
West Virginia moves into the top 10 at eight following the Mountaineers win over Texas.
There are plenty of changes further down the ballot, something that is becoming a weekly thing given the balance in the college game.
Three-loss Florida, Utah, Iowa and Virginia teams fall off this week as do two of last week's newbies, Houston and Georgia Southern.
Entering the fray for now are Mississippi State, Cincinnati, Michigan State, Army and San Diego State but expect more change.
Those bottom spots on the ballot have become like parking spots with 15-minute time limits, they're constantly churning.
Here is my ballot for this week's AP poll, which is scheduled to be released early this afternoon:
3. Notre Dame
7. Ohio State
8. West Virginia
10. Washington State
12. Boston College
15. Utah State
16. Fresno State
19. Penn State
20. Mississippi State
21. North Carolina State
23. Michigan State
25. San Diego State
