We're learning more each week about the strengths and weaknesses of college football teams, leading to plenty of movement on my ballot for this week's Associated Press college football poll.
Road wins by Oregon against Ohio State and Iowa against Iowa State have led to plenty of shuffling in the upper tier of my ballot and losses by USC, Texas and Utah have led to similar movement on the bottom end of the top 25.
Alabama and Georgia remain the 1-2 teams on my ballot, with Oklahoma and Texas A&M climbing into third and fourth ahead of Oregon, which I moved from ninth a week ago to fifth following its 35-28 win over the Buckeyes.
I have Clemson in sixth this week, one spot ahead of where Iowa replaces Iowa State in the seventh position following another strong defensive effort by the Hawkeyes and turnover issues that proved costly for the Cyclones.
ISU moves from seventh to 13th this week.
Cincinnati, Notre Dame and Penn State round out my top 10.
I have four newcomers this week in Virginia Tech, Arkansas, Michigan and BYU.
